This isn’t technically a romance (which I suspected from the start); it’s just that it has steamy scenes, and I’m certainly here for that. (Is there a term for romance-adjacent that doesn’t actually qualify?)

This is a mostly fun read even without being a romance. I found it predictable, but not in a bad way. I also hated every single character except maybe the daughter, who seemed the only one concerned with weighing her own feelings against the feelings of others. But again, I hated them all in a way that was fun and low-stakes. The book feels quite long at points, especially since it is rather predictable, but the pacing really works to counteract that.

I can see why people enjoy this book, especially if they’re not used to reading more graphic romance. And the whole Harry Styles of it all certainly adds to the hype.
