Loved the humor and light hearted nature of this book. I was happy that I watch the tv series beforehand because it made me love it even more! However I really didn’t like how Simon talked about Daphne like she was his property… I know that’s how it was like back in the day but I still didn’t like it very much. Same thing goes for when Daphne forced herself on Simon and forced his consent for an action he didn’t want to do. I know it’s later explained that that wasn’t her intention but still that didn’t sit right for me.
