This book was such a delightful multi-faceted read. From Darcy’s entertaining personality and take no BS attitude, to her inner self-loathing that she hides so well, I loved her for being a complicated and genuine character. With a hard to understand relationship with her family, to her utter devotion to Tom, I was left in complete turmoil waiting for what would happen next on the Darcy stage.
With a slow burn romance and sexual tension heating up the pages, I loved rooting for these adorable characters to learn how to be true to each other… and themselves.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
