I will say that I enjoyed this and the ending was very cute, and it was nice and spicy, but although I enjoyed the buildup of the relationship and the way they interacted there were certain comments that the characters made in the book which just didn’t sit right with me. For example, the FMC at one point in the book said “Seriously, if being an asshole burned calories, you’d be fucking anorexic.”, now there were certain other instances where they said things and I was like hmmm, but this one just really stuck with me because anorexia is a serious condition, it’s not something to joke about, or use as a way insult someone. So, this just really didn’t sit right with me, I did finish the book because I wanted to see where the relationship ended but I don’t think I’m going to reread due to opinions like this being made within the book.
