This wasn't one of my favorites. Since I was expecting something different from what I read, I believe my experience was tainted by my expectations. I expected that navigating the obstacle of a thirty year age gap between Oliver and Tellumo (hated his name!) would provide humor and conflict, but ultimately lead to romance. That didn't happen. The MCs were apart for most of the book, and the focus was more on their relationships with other characters than with each other.

I didn't connect with the characters and never felt invested in the story. There were funny moments, but I only made a mental note of the humor instead of actually feeling it. Speaking of making a mental note? In the future I will avoid buying any books set in a town called Fallisville. Yeah, hated that name as well!
