After reading two books by this author, I honestly believed I would love this one just the same but I was so, completely wrong. I couldn’t enjoy this because of one reason:
It had SO MANY similarities to The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight.
I would go into detail but my reviews are strictly spoiler free so UGH!!! Just, please, take my word for it. The plot line was great and it had potential, but if the author had done her job right and made these characters unique to their own story, I would’ve definitely enjoyed it more. But no. She made them have some of the same qualities that the ones in The Statistical… had and that made me mad. They were so similar that they started to blur together and I kept getting them confused. I didn’t know who was who anymore and I stopped trying to figure it out. It made me incredibly frustrated and I almost flung this book to the wall a couple times of that.
I loved that this story was told in both Owen and Lucy’s POV but due to the reason I mentioned before, I wasn’t invested in their relationship at all.They went through hardships and I didn’t even care. I didn’t feel their chemistry and I just wanted this book to end so I could move on to better books. Also, it didn’t feel like they were ‘in love’. Maybe, obsessed but not in love.
After this book, I will think twice, or maybe three times, before picking up another book by Jennifer.
