I’m going to cut to the chase with this review. I’ve read quite a lot of Kristan Higgins books both in Romance and Women’s Fiction and for me, I feel like her books are hit and miss for me. I’m always looking for an enjoyable read and although Higgins’ writing style typically stays bright despite some of the darker or taboo topics she may write about, I just found that this book fell flat for me.
Right from the beginning, I started to wonder if this book was going to be for me. The humor is the biggest thing for me because I feel like Higgins has a very different sense of humor to mine. I really can’t relate and find a lot of what her characters say to be weird. I don’t know. I’m not sure if it’s the case of her humor just not meshing well with mine or I just don’t think the jokes are funny. But either way, I didn’t enjoy it.
I also didn’t really like the premise of this book. It just didn’t capture my attention or make me feel anything for the characters. So as a result, I found myself putting this book down several times. It’s a shame because there have been some Romance books of hers that I really loved. But unfortunately, after too many misses in a row, I doubt I will try more of her books in the future.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
