โ€œFriends and family are the only ones I have a chance of keeping forever. And thatโ€™s what I want. To keep you, forever.โ€ย 

๐ŸŒŸ This book reminded me of why I stay away from romance books as much as possible. I am so picky when it comes to books I read in this genre but boy I was disappointed!

๐ŸŒŸ I have seen many disappointed reviews comparing this book to The Hating Game which is the author’s successful debut and I think it is not fair. They are totally unrelated and different stories so there’s no point in comparing them. I did enjoy THG but I won’t be comparing the 2 books in this review.

๐ŸŒŸ I had many problems with the book and I am starting with the plot… that if it does exist!! I just didn’t know what was the point of the story! I was reading and I knew what will happen from the start, I was not anticipating anything and got bored at some point!

๐ŸŒŸ The Writing was not bad as to made me DNF the book but I certainly rolled my eyes -a lot-. I wanted more showing less telling, Darcy was trying to be edgy and an outlaw-er but she isn’t. Tom is the typical guy in this kind of novels which is meh!

๐ŸŒŸ More about Darcy and Tom: The story in my POV was filled with more Lust than Love. Thank you but I don’t need to be reminded that Tom has a flat abdomen with curvy abs and that Darcy has a nipple piercing -Ooh so fierce-. Don’t forget the typical everyone is muscular and sexy trope hence I said that I prefer Sarah J Maas books to this one as they have good story lines at least!
Tom is the sexy-nice-perfect-smart-gentle-I -Will-Do-Anything-for-you type of guy which makes him unrelatable. This is real life so he would either have a big defect or will be gay (Don’t take this too seriously!).

๐ŸŒŸSummary: I hoped to have a slow burn romance novel with deeper story and more realistic characters. I was disappointed that I had the opposite and hence won’t recommend this if you are looking for a more serious novel.


  1. hahaha I also didn’t love this one, but I enjoyed myself reading it. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I prefer THG, but that’s mostly bcs I like the enemies to lovers trope better than friends to lovers. On another note, if you ever want to pick up a more serious romance book, you should consider reading Only a Breath Apart by Katie McGary. It’s a YA new release. I think this book is heartfelt, touching, and full of angst. It’s also a slow burn. The book doesn’t only focus on the romance, but also on how the MCs dealing with childhood trauma and coming to terms with growing as an adult seeing as they’re still 17 yo. It comes with a few trigger warnings, such as domestic violence, grief over the lost of loved ones, and a few mentions of drug use. Maybe this one is more of your groove (?) ๐Ÿค“
