I enjoyed most parts of this book very much.
Cassie (emotionally life stunted) and Ethan (broody, loner, funny intelligent) who fall in love when put together in the drama class play of Romeo & Juliette by a pushy teacher Erika, who notices their undeniable chemistry.
The chapters go back and forth, between present day when the ex lovers are once again cast retelling of R&J and the past where they first acted with each other. They work their way through first love (past) and issues that they never resolved.
The one liners,banter between Ethan and Cassie and all their friends was next level funny and endearing.
I LOVED, LOVED the 19 yo, Ethan he was so perfect even with his intimacy issues.
Cassie was cute and awkward in the beginning and unintentionally funny ( however she did suffer from verbal diarrhoea at times)
This book was a slow burn, which I love but, Cassie was too much at times.
During some interactions with Ethan she could get down right needy and annoying. Ethan, the same could become insecure,clingy possessive and suffocating.
I like the younger version of Ethan best and strangely the older, wiser more world weary version of Cassie better.
I know it’s just me but, I also hate the interfering friends and family that seem to get used as minions to push the plot along. In real life I would be pissed if my friends became so invested in my love life.
Also, If it was me,and I found out about the bet everyone was running on Ethan and Cassie I would of been fuming!!!...Also Ethans sister setting Cassie up to go his his apartment when he was sick, where she later admitted it was to push them together to win 100 dollars....Man, I would have throat punched my sister if she did something that manipulative to me. Not laugh about it.
Overall a good read. Just trying to figure out if I could sit through the second book now or, take a breather.
