First, I won this book in a GoodReads giveaway.
If you’re looking for a relatively predictable, feel-good love story, this is it. I enjoy a good light read, but I’m not a fan of “romance” novels, they tend to have graphic sex scenes, that just aren’t my jam. I wish there had been a warning on this book, since there were several of those… it’s fine, I just skip ahead.
Beyond that, the characters are fairly predictable: the mysterious, handsome, “good-guy” stranger; the dirt-bag, cookie-cutter handsome former crush; the slightly neurotic, brilliant, gorgeous, gamer girl heroine with crazy dyed hair; the strong, slightly judgey best friend; and the over-bearing boss. The plot plays exactly how you expect it to: two guys sort-of vying for the affection of the heroine, while she neurotically allows her life to implode, until she has a life-changing epiphany and the girl gets the guy, and the dirt-bag gets his just desserts.
If you’re looking for a comfortable read to escape reality, this is the book for you.
