"Another popular book that I don't understand the hype. The beginning of this book was incredibly slow, a lot of back and fourth so it took them forever to get to Spain which was the whole point of this book. The fun begins once they arrive in Spain. It was charming, cute and romantic. A lot of moment I was laughing out loud and simping over Aaron. Until he said "I want to feel you milking me baby" UGH!! WHAT? Cringe! And then... back to US where it's boring again!!! This book didn't need to be almost 500 pages. Eh it was okay. Wouldn't recommend. Read the love hypothesis if you like fake dating trope."
"Okay so I seem to be in the minority but I was not a huge fan. Not sure if these are SPOILERS, but maybe stop reading if you haven't read. First, not a fan of the main character. So much unnecessary drama and I can't tell if she's just super naive or used to the drama? Then I started enjoying around the wedding. Then the 2 main characters totally changed after that, and not necessarily for the good. Also personally, the mention of "milking" was not the spice I was hoping for😂 I tried🤷♀️"
"Fun! Fun! Fun!"
"I love this book, especially the characters (Aaron). It is definitely more of a slow burn but I love it even more for being like that. I love how Lina conquers her career and family life and how Aaron is her biggest advocate. It is such a cute and sweet story with great chemistry, connections, settings, etc."
"I did not liek this book for a number of reasons. One I felt like the writing was weak and if felt liek a 15 year old could have written this. Also the story was cute and cliche but other than that, nothing is going for this book. The characters are very 1 dimensional and Catalina is like a bit dramatic for no reason. She's kinda a brat and Aaron just bothered me with the whole grumpy but I always loved you because it was done in a weird way."
"Twenty five. "
