First things first: I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley.
The book is already out, so you can go and check it out.
I had a really hard time raiting this. For now it's a 3.5 raiting.
The book is about Rylee and Chase, who were best friends during their childhood. Then he had to move away and they lost contact. Now 5 years later they reunite.
Not gonna lie, I really love stories like that. And I think their reunion and them discovering their feelings for each other was really well written. I really like the writing In this book, super fun and easy. If it weren't for my tv show obsession I probably could have finished the book in two days (maybe even one day).
The characters. That's when thIngs get tricky. I really didn't like how Rylee acted towards Chase when it comes to the past. The fact that she blamed him for moving away. I get that she was heartbroken when he left and when after a bit they lost contact. But I don't think it was really his fault???? And Chase attitude towards his father? I get that things are bad when you grow up with an alcoholic father but he was really working on himself and even though he was totally in over his head with his teenager son living with him again he never slipped. So give him some slack, especially giving how Chase hImself drowned all his worries with beer. I was just a bit frustrated wIth these two. And the side characters weren't that great either. They just didn't work for me at all.
Just looking at the lovestory between Rylee and Chase, without looking any deeper, this book is super sweet and cute. But, sadly, it didn't do much for me.
