I loved this so much! I literally devoured it in a few hours - it’s the perfect quick romance, that’ll have you smiling and kicking your feet. 

As a fellow massive rom-com fan, this just felt like the perfect nod to everything that makes them so comforting.

I loved the references, all the clichés,  and the playlists, and if I was to read this again, I’d definitely listen to the songs as I was reading!

Honestly if you love romance, this book won’t disappoint you, and it gave me that incredible nostalgic feeling of watching your first rom-com and longing for your own meet-cute.
