“…get ready to fall in love with your next book boyfriend.”~ Under the Covers
I’ve been impatiently waiting for this series to come out, as I do with any Roni Loren book. When we met Andi in the first book I knew she was going to be such an interesting character to know more about. I couldn’t wait to get to her backstory. WHAT IF YOU & ME delivered!
This is a neighbors to lovers story and as with the previous book, Ms. Loren tackles mental health and disability. Andi has anxiety and with good reason due to what’s happened in her past. Her sexy neighbor Hill is a former firefighter who lost part of this leg in a rescue and is now trying to figure out what to do with his life.
Andi and Hill have chemistry and some great banter that will keep you engaged. This book was funny and flirty while also having a lot of character development and depth. This is one of my favorite things about Roni Loren’s books and she delivers every time. Yes, this is a romance, but in this short amount of pages you get to fall completely in love with these characters and understand everything that makes them tick, everything that makes them hurt. And you just want to see them happy. Even grumpy Hill.
Getting to know both of them through the friendship that develops between them was just perfect. For two people that have gone through so much, I think this was the only way to give them the time needed to connect and allow someone else into their world. And in the end, the fact they were both able to deal with their issues individually as well as coming together as a couple really makes me feel they will be in it for the long haul.
Pick this up when you’re ready for a slow burn romance that gives you angst in the way that only Roni Loren can do. And get ready to fall in love with your next book boyfriend.
