Ohhhh...December! I had very good Christmas, and I hope you all did too. I even managed to read a few books. I'm having a difficult time reconciling the end of 2017. Not sure why that is??? I just can't believe the new year is here, already. On to my re-cap...

An adult themed story that's geared more towards the younger adults, with its tech-savvy writing, and the TMZ-Style news alerts peppered throughout the story. I did actually love the narrator for those posts, he had a perfect voice for it. Unfortunately, overall, this story didn't always come off as genuine or believable. I liked it well enough…but ultimately, it may suffer from being completely forgettable.
⇝Will I read more from this Author?⇜ Ugh…probably not…
Yes, I got a bit impatient in the end with all the self-doubt and so on.
Some unnecessary misunderstanding.
But all in all a beautiful read.
Really really enjoyed it.
A slow burn love story that really lets you get to know the main characters.
