"Very cute and sweet! The characters were all so well developed and interesting. I thought the little touches of well known song titles was a thoughtful addition. I will say if you’re looking for a spicy book this is not it! Very tame and pg but romantic and delightful nonetheless 8/10 for me!!"
"4/5 This was such a good book! It brought me back to my teenage years and falling in love with my husband. The way this author wrote the characters was so special. I highly recommend giving this book a read. "
"I am not a love story kind of girl but I wanted to try something different this month and venture out of my reading comfort zone. This novel was on kindle unlimited and I downloaded it on a whim to read. I know that romance can be called smutty but that is absolutely not this novel at all. It was very PG-13 and reminded me a lot of the YA love stories I read when I was growing up. Although it is not my preferred genre, this was still a nice summer read."
"Thirty eight. "
"This was one of the cutest books I’ve ever read hands down. I LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEEE the idea and plot like it’s actually genius. The summer beach love romance plot thingy is used a lot but this, this was so genius. The characters and also super likable, and I’ll admit I cried once or twice. Definitely a book to read in the summer (especially on the beach)!! It also has an unexpected ending, did the book NEED to be nearly 400 pages? No. Am I mad about it? No. GO READ IT RNNNNNN!!!"
"Loved this book. 4 stars for sure. It was gooey fluffy goodness and if you spent your summers around water as a kid / teenager then this book is for you. Meredith and Wit are the cutest YA couple. Their problems feel like actual real world problems. It’s cute but not childish. Just a great feel good summer ending read. "
