Description

I think sometimes author's forget that sappy, happy, enjoyable, funny, non-traumatic books can be just as entertaining and wonderful as the twists and turns in others. I want to stress that I enjoyed a lot of the book and currently have several other Christina Lauren books on hold at my local library. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.

There were times her antics felt a bit over the top but it worked to showcase how self-assured and content she was with herself. If the characters had only spoken to each other and been honest, they could have got together so much sooner. Jumping around, being overtly excited about stuff we care about and ignoring social rules doesn't mean we have no soul, that we're never hurt and that we're superficial or worse, selfish.I did like the fact that it started off as a friendship though and wasn't a love or lust at first sight kind of situation. In Josh's life, everything has its place; in Hazel's life, she has to somehow navigate through the mess and pets to find anything. She'd give you the shirt off her back—literally—but she knows that makes her a difficult romantic prospect. However, I need more than just romance, whether it be drama in the main character's family life, work life, school life, etc.

Of course the more and more time they spend together, the more they realize that there is more to their relationship than just friendship.Yes, she had her insecurities but she was also fiercely confident in herself and enviably comfortable in her own skin. Definitely add this to your TBR if you're looking for some healthy romance that has equal parts cuteness and steaminess. Hazel is insistent on becoming Josh’s best friend and getting him back into the dating pool after a bad break-up. But this book does have a lot of steamy scenes, so trigger and content warnings for sexual content, talk of past death of a loved one, cheating (off-screen and not main characters), and a homophobic slur. Of course she has insecurities like everyone, but it was nice to see a woman not constantly berating herself over everything.

There was nothing in the writing or plot to inspire actual hate for this book, it just seemed lackluster. These types of books aren't usually my favorites, as I lean towards books that are more heavy and emotional, but this one hit the spot for me. Many funny and awkward encounters follow and, with every disaster date, it looks more and more likely that Josh and Hazel are ignoring what is right in front of their eyes.A tiny voice reminds me that Josh didn’t bother to blow smoke up my butt and tell me what a lovely place I had. There are some pacing issues, I think, with the time between them becoming friends and, um, later developments being too long.
