"This book is really good but not quite perfect. The chemistry between the main characters is fantastic. Their friends are so wonderful and the banter is great. However, as much as I love a happy ending, I felt there were major problems with Darcy’s confidence and Elle’s family that wrapped up too quickly and nicely. It was an excellent read otherwise and I highly recommend it. 🌶🌶🌶/5"
"Overhyped. I'm sorry. This book series so far has horrible friends who don't understand boundaries and the romances feel forced because of it. I feel like none of the characters give the MCs a chance to actually fall in love and it's solely based off of peer pressure. I DNFed this series because it was constant peer pressure to fall in love and that is not how love works in my opinion"
