I wasn’t a big fan of this book. I like the romance between Oliver and Hadley but I felt that the rest of the book lacked character interaction. You got to spend a lot of time in Hadley’s head but not a lot of time with the other characters. The writing was good and I enjoyed the flashbacks but it just didn’t have enough of the things that I enjoy reading in a book. I am also not a huge fan of contemporary reads so when I do read one I want it to have more romance or just more character interaction. I do know that a lot of people enjoyed this book a lot but I am just not as sold on it as everyone else. I will say that if you are a fan of contemporary reads then this is definitely a book for you!
