Ahhhhh this is one of those stories I loved and I wish I could just talk about all of the plot points I love. This is probably my new favorite romance story. The protagonists have so much chemistry, it had me grinning from ear to ear for a good chunk of the book. I found the characters relatable to myself and my relationship as a whole in a lot of ways. It was nice to sew Danyelle grow as a person.
While I predicted nearly every single one of the plot points and twists, it didn’t cause me to enjoy the story any less. This is the second R.M. Demeester novel I’ve reviewed that I was able to predict nearly every plot point,m in all fairness this is the exact type of story I’d write if I ever wrote any of my ideas down. This also might be a contributing factor as to why I enjoy it so much.
Some of the characters are utterly insufferable, such as Danyelle’s mother. I’ve known people who are just like, if not worse than every unlikeable character in this story, which just made them more believable.
After trying to think of any major criticisms, I really can’t think of any. (Minor spoiler) There is a moment where Danyelle and Ian make a big deal out of saying I love you. But I swear there was a moment earlier in the story where one of them said that.
Much like with the story itself, I only have good things to say about the narration. I did recall the narrator saying “aunt” as “ant” and “ont” (however you would spell out both pronunciations of that word without looking up a dictionary) which I found a bit odd.
