"This is the book that got me back into reading. It is very clean which is a personal preference for me, but it’s also very romantic and has a very interesting concept which I haven’t seen in any other books. Both the characters are lovely and it’s a great light read with a plot that keeps you interested."
"Wow this book is incredible. It is adorable and funny and sweet, but also provides SO much insight into the types of struggles people may go through, how you can relate to others even when you have different experiences, and how to pay attention to the things you should be grateful for rather than taking things for granted. It sent me on a journey of heartache, laughter, and love, and I adored every minute of it. 10/10 would recommend. Actually, make that 11/10. <3"
" Such a sweet book! I loved the humor and banter between characters. Weston especially was such a unique and likable character. The way the author unraveled his backstory could not have been more well done. Also very clean which I loved. Highly recommend! Also if you enjoyed the book and like to write, the author Abbie Emmons also has a YouTube channel that helps you create your own stories. She does a good job, and I have learned a lot from her."
