“Honestly, I think I’ve loved you since the day we met.”

 

In a word: Maybe read the thing? I dunno. It’s harmless enough. The writing isn’t very good, and the plot is pretty bare-bones. There were a few parts that I enjoyed, but overall I wasn’t a fan. When I first read it (back in February) I liked it well-enough, but reading it again was a chore. I’m still not sure how this even got so many 4 and 5 star reviews on Goodreads. If insta-love is your thing, no matter how bad the writing is, you might enjoy this. It’s worth at least reading once for the entertainment value. There’s a lot of this that could work if only the writing was better.
