Well written novel but you have to love angst and suspend believe at time!
8 January 2017
The book was well written and the concept "from best friends to lovers" approached in a different way than others in this genre. As many other reviewers have commented on, the book is full of angst. I do not mind a bit of angst but for me there was just too much unnecessary angst. The story felt too contrived at times and at times it became unbelievable. (Spoiler alert) It was never well explained why B did not return to San Diego and Jaime after her father died. Had difficulty seeing a link between the problems she had with her father and her love for Jaime. Further Jaime having B wait for 2 years without any contact before returning to her (after declaring his love and telling her he wanted to be with her) even with his divorce problems seems quite unbelievable, any sane person would have tried to contact B somehow (through her friend Jenna e.g.). Also B just sitting at home and waiting desperately for 6 months for Jaime to contact her and then trying to forget him seems unbelievable. Once again any sane person would have flown to Fort Lauder-dale and demand an explanation. The unnecessary angst around these events just irritated me and took away some of the enjoyment of reading this well written novel.
