"It’s a book. 3 stars. Nothing too extravagant or groundbreaking. The biggest highlight of the book is Gerry: sweet, positive, funny, and carrying just like a warm hug. I love him throughout the book. I have to say Chapter 13 is the funniest and worth the time and chapter 16 is the most tender and sweet. The small plot twist was definitely nice. Now the Start of the book feels long, and dreadful and portrays MC as an annoying teen. The book didn’t leave much of a big impression so not much to say. It’s a one-time read and doesn’t get you as deep to the core as you would think. MC's first love interest (Jasper) feels like a shapeless jello, powerful and successful yet acts like yet another teen. Just not it. The biggest letdown is still multiple typos, weirdly worded sentences (my hair has been styled to within an inch of its life and more), as well as using the wrong name on page 370. Now typos I can understand, but using the wrong character names in your own book? Overall, it’s an ok read. "
"It didn't capture my interest. I'll usually suck it up and finish, but I didn't finish this one."
"This book was the first book I’ve ever read in ages! And I’m glad I choice it. I’m a hopeless romantic so this book caught my eye when I first saw it on Target. And ever since then now I’m buying books cause I’m so invested in them. This book was so cute and I like the storyline . It’s a simple hopeless romantic love story and super cute. This is a solid 4/5 so cute and amazing."
