If you’ve been following my blog or my reviews for any length of time that’s longer than like a week, you probably know two things about me:
- I’m obsessed with anything R.S. Grey writes, and
- Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes.
Well, R.S. Grey just wrote a friends-to-lovers romantic comedy and I could die right now and be happy. My first note on this book was made when I read the synopsis and it was “Oh shit, this book might actually kill me.” So… I’m only like half-dead, but it was really good.
Can I just say that I’m struggling to describe everything I liked about this book without any spoilers? I read the first half of the book before work and let me tell you, there is a thing that happens that left me almost incapable of going to work. I almost actually called out, but in the end, I pulled myself together like the grown adult I am because I’m saving my vacation days for actual vacations and not just overreactions to fiction.
After that certain particular thing that happens, it becomes slow burn and wow, it’s like R.S. Grey just reads my mind and writes the exact thing that will drive me the craziest but that I’ll also love. It’s really a talent. I don’t know of any other author that can do that.
My only criticism of this book comes down to a choice that Ian and Sam make toward the end, but it’s really just a personal preference and most people probably won’t think of it as such a big deal. I wish this wasn’t an ARC review so I could actually explain myself and not just make vague statements.
I guess all I can say is please read this book. (And, of course, infinite thanks to both the author and Inkslinger PR for this ARC.)
