Romance, LGBTQ+, fiction.

Rating 9/10

Merritt returns from being apart of doctors without boarders and at the airport, a blast from the past is there. Austen, her musician crush fling is there and what is horrible is that she didn’t recognize Merritt. Austen denied but she knew very well who this mysterious woman is. Their paths cross once more at a Gala. They slowly get to know each other, and love doesn’t keep them apart. A romance blossoming that proves that they were meant to be together.

I loved this novel. I thought the slow burn was perfect and was expecting for one or the other to come forward with their feelings. The writing is beautiful, and the characters felt realistic. I love the fact that this wasn’t just erotic smut, and it was more about the characters interactions and feelings. The novel moves at a slow pace which made the romance a rather slow burn. I occasionally read slow burns, but not often enough. I want to read more of this genre and would be very much interested in reading more from this author.

Didn’t really like this novel at all. It wasn’t really intriguing enough for me. It was a light read and too mediocre. It was predictable from the first few chapters and I prefer something more challenging and more page turning suspense. This lacked a lot of suspense. Too quick paced to the point where I couldn’t and didn’t understand what on earth was going on with the novel. It went back and forth between Crawford and Holly in a manner that I couldn’t keep track of the plot line.
