Ugh, this book is so the perfect combination of sweet, fluffy, steamy, and just the right amount of angst. I couldn't ask for more.
I had found this book after I trolled various 'friends-to-lovers' list and while I really don't think that this book falls into that category, I am glad I read it.
Nora is a flawed but mature heroine and I was never bored while I read her story. Crosbie seemed off-putting to me initially because I thought he was just too muscular but his personality won me over. He's sweet, he's funny, he's a loyal friend, he knows when to apologize, he is studious and doesn't take things for granted. He's a truly great hero and his friendship with Kellan is the epitome of a bromance. I also hope Kellan gets his own book because he deserves his HEA.
It was also so refreshing to read a New Adult book that had no slut shaming or raging assholes disguised as heroes.
My only real gripe was that the writing seemed repetitive at times and I detected a small inconsistency between the number of months Nora had been celibate. In certain parts, it said four months and in another, it said three. It's a minor thing but it bugs me because that's just me.
Otherwise, I truly recommend this book if you want to read something fun and are looking for a new book boyfriend.
