The dialog was unrealistic which pulled me out of the story. I wish that didn't bug me so much.

It was entertaining and funny even though I'm not a fan of the tropes and explicitness. The writing style bugged me at first. There's a lot of telling and not a lot of showing but I got use to it. This did make it harder to relate to the characters though. Over all it wasn't bad but not memorable for me personally. .

I almost never come across contemparary books that are willing to make a romantic interest a darker skin tone. This is refreshing as hell. I loved the plot and the characters had unique personalities. I would happily re-read. This is a feel good book.

I can't think of anything bad to say about this book other than I wish the next one would come out already .

The male love interest is verbally abusive and its not okay. I also noticed an issue with concent. The story tries to redeem him but it did not work for me. I couldn't ship the love interests even if I tried. I couldn't wait to finish the book. I love Mariana but this one was a miss.

I love this author but i couldn't get into this book. There's a lot of girls hating girls for stupid things like what they wear. The main character isn't very likable to me. Mariana tries had to make her corky by making her do awkward things but It was still wasn't enough for my taste. I also found the romance hard to engage in because the main male character was routinely portrayed as "perfect." The only redeeming part of this book for me was the friend group. If any of them were the main character I might have enjoyed the novel more.

I wasn't sure when I first started reading
