“Unfortunately for me, it fell flat.”

~ Under the Covers

I really wanted to love this one. An enemies to lovers centered around a dying arts program, some family drama, and forced proximity? It was a recipe for the perfect young adult novel. Unfortunately for me, it fell flat. I generally disliked all of the characters, especially the MC. Natalie was whiny, annoying, entitled, and generally exhausting to read. She thought the entire world revolved around her. She often took things too far, then acted like everyone else was crazy when she was forced to suffer the consequences. Her parents were around, but both extremely emotionally unavailable. The only character I actually did like was her love interest, Reid. He was funny, quirky, and just generally adorable. He’s honestly the only reason I finished the book.
