I struggled to rate this because I think nearly all the issues here had to to with my specific turn-offs and not with the quality of the writing or the construction. In fact I liked the interactions of many characters, and am up to read another book by Penny Reid, who though a very popular romance writer is new to me. The two main characters here were extremely awkward. Both had childhood trauma, and Byron has some sensory processing problems which explain some of the awkwardness, but not most of it. Reid tried to make Byron into Darcy, and she failed badly at that. There is a whole thing where the taciturn and rude Byron essentially says he likes the people pleaser Winn against his will and better judgment. Reid is not subtle with the P&P references. The problem is that these two keep missing each other because of miscommunications (a trope that really needs to be used sparingly and is on every damn page here) and the miscommunications are willful, especially on the part of Winn. Her twisting of Byron's clear statements of adoration as indicators he does not like her reads like a parade of passive aggression. I felt so bad for Byron who has serious communication problems and who gets up the courage to clearly tell someone he has been crushing on her for years, and she just blows it off and leaves the scene. The burn was too slow, the miscommunications too plentiful, and both parties are too insecure for this to work for me.… (més)

Penny Reid does it again!! I love this book series and I shall not tire until I read every single one of these books!!

Funny, sweet romance. Some heavy topics are tackled here, and it’s sad, but the romance brewing makes it hopeful. It’s like a balm for the scar the heavy topics leave.

Would highly recommend this book series!

What the hell was the ending?? Why were we left hanging??? I’m so confused.

This was short and nice.

I really enjoyed this one. However the miscommunication trope makes a feature and I don’t like it
