"Vague spoilers: Loved it! Banter makes you blush and cackle with a compelling storyline. It’s not like a fake enemies to lovers, they definitely start out enemies, but the switch to lovers did feel a little bit out of the blue. Still a great read that i binged and will be continuing on to the sequel tonight after finishing it a few hours ago."
"I liked it! "
"It's my trash: I am a sucker for corrupt institutions, straitlaced heroes, and religion mingling with magic. Like I said, it is my trash, but it is also my treasure."
