Characters • Autumn and Dax are both very difficult people so it made their grudging friendship turned romance both frustrating and worth it. In fact, that actually sums up how I feel about them as individuals too. There were moments when I wanted to reach into the book and shake them but at the same time, the author provides a back story that explains why they're the way they are.
Writing • I really enjoy Kasie West's writing. It's just fun, light and engaging. I find myself always breezing through her books.
Overall feelings • I liked it! It wasn't my favorite of hers (it's still P.S. I Like You and Pivot Point) but it was good for a quick, one-sitting read.
Favorite library • The main branch of New York Public Library! I went for the first time recently and it's just beautiful. If you're in NYC and haven't seen it or the Main Rose Reading Room yet, go go go.
