Personal Review:

A classic best friends-to lovers romance.

The first couple of pages told me everything I needed to know about this romance:

  1. H is a HUGE manwhore and hits on flight attendant during our first introduction to him (with the h sitting next to him)
  2. The h has been in love with H for many years and is his best friend and also works for him
  3. The h has witnessed his manwhore ways through the years
  4. Neither the h or H recognise the disgusting manwhore-ish ways
  5. H has a secret crush on the h but continues to fuck other women instead of manning up and admitting his feelings
  6. The h suddenly realises she needs to make some ‘life-changing’ decisions ie realising that the H is not going to change and she is being walked all over

And ALL of this was gathered from the first couple of pages. This was not a good sign for me but I continued to read with the hope of the H being brought to his knees.

I had to skip a lot of internal dialogue because it wasn’t holding my interest and I just wanted to get to the grovel.

So she goes on a ‘date’ with another man and all of a sudden the H is all like “you’re mine!” and staked his claim and did the h make him work for it? NO! she literally said ‘yes’ and they got it on.


Overall Feeling:

“there was one thing she knew for certain—unrequited love sucked big hairy balls.”


I think I am officially done with Carly’s books
