  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


I enjoyed this for the most part and liked the characters although related to the FMC a little less as she came across a little immature at times. The FMC is an artist, the MMC is a cop and it’s a friends to lovers romance in a small town with a generally cute dynamic. I also enjoyed the MMC’s backstory and felt his development was realistic. My surprise favourite character was
the grumpy gallery owner with a heart of gold the FMC works for
and I’d really like him to have his own book sometime. I enjoyed the will they-won’t they dynamic however the pacing of the book was off - the actual romance and ending felt rushed and packed into the last few chapters.
