While I could see glimpses of myself in all 3 Brown sisters, Dani resonates with me most of all. Reading about — a confident woman who is so often full of self-doubt and fear, the girl who was always smart, nerdy, and preferred books and learning to building relationships with people growing up to be the academic chasing her phd dreams, the witchy woman with wild and shocking hair — was like looking into a mirror. This book was sweet and sexy and funny. The characters are relatable and loveable. The plot is believable and best of all it’s a friends to lovers trope instead of enemies to lovers! All the romance tropes are silly to me, but Hibbert can do them all well, and this novel is no different. Finally, the spicy scenes didn’t let me down, either.
