Rating: 4.0 – a great sappy romance
Opinion: This was a great book. It was super sappy. I liked that the characters talked with each other about the important things. Maybe not right away but they made it work. I liked that this book felt like a more realistic relationships. When they did have sex, they made it very consensual. The author made the characters relatable and made the science easy to understand. There was a fair amount of good humor, too. I liked that the author is making science more appealable to women, even in a romance book. This is a great, sweet and sappy romantic book. I recommend this book for anyone who loves sappy romance.
