To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors… Drink sometime?

I wanted to love this book so much because the first few chapters got the potential of a good romantic comedy/contemporary romance novel! It’s smart & funny with drops of pop culture references that we can all relate to. HOWEVER! towards the middle it was more of a MEH!
I found myself skimming & skipping (fast reading it is!) just so I can get to the good parts with the hope that they will finally meet. There is such thing as slow burn and/or building anticipation but the story was stretched far too long that you will somewhat lose your interest to read the next chapters & just skip towards the end.
How many times I found myself rolling my eyes because I’m already annoyed while saying “OMG! can you meet ALREADY!!!” 🙄🙄 And that is not a good thing. The balance of romantic excitement was tipped to dip. Nadia & Daniel’s story picked up towards the last few chapters and how I wish that part was placed in the middle & then some more towards the end.
- The LGBTQ touch – love it.
- The Feminist touch – love that too.
- Loss, Grief & finding love in the modern world – loved it.
Like I said, this had the potential but it lacked in some ways. I am giving it ⭐️⭐️ (2) stars.
