I really liked the premise of this book and I absolutely love the author but for some reason this book just didn’t “do it” for me. It was a decent read but there was just so many things about it that I just couldn’t get on board with. I liked the hero and heronine well enough but the story itself could have been a lot longer. The main characters weren’t happy with each other for the longest time and then out of the blue everything is going well and the hero wants to do things to make the heroine happy. It all just happened too quickly for me.
That being said, it was still an good enough read to get 3 stars in my book.
