Meryl Wilsner ´ 7 REVIEW

Omen begin to spend even time together getting along famously Emma seems to have a sixth sense for knowing what Jo needs And Jo known for being aloof and outwardly cold opens up to Emma in a way neither of them expects They begin to realize the rumor might not be so off base after allbut is acting on the spark between them worth fanning the gossip flam. Welp I am bummed as heck I was SO excited for this book because it is Berkley's first FF title but I gotta be honest nothing happened in this book It started out fun enough but the pacing was sooooooo slooooooow and the characters had little to no sexual OR romantic chemistry and this just let me down in a big way It wasn't tHe WoRsT thing I've ever read hence the 3 star rating and not anything lower but it was just especially disappointing because I had such high hopes for this one I am big sad Womp
