Y’all. What heck rock have I been hiding under!? This book was everything! Filled with laughs, smiles, tears and amazingness!!! I was in a book funk, and this one pulled me right on out!

I adored Kristen & Josh. They were beautifully chiseled and I loved following their story. I felt Kristen’s struggles (I went through the same thing!), and I felt the sparks fly between them as their attraction grew. 

This book has the perfect amount of spice mixed with a touch of angst and very real life issues(be sure to check triggers before reading!). The characters steal your soul, making a home to life their forever. I couldn’t get enough and am so excited to dive into book 2! 

Move over, Colleen Hoover. Abby Jimenez is gonna steal number 1 for me! Definitely recommend this one with 5 ⭐️!
