Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Procrastination invigorates me.
This was a really quick little read. We follow Keeley and Talon as they accidentally switch phone for a week. Snappy banter and romance ensue. This was a good contemporary filled with all of the tropes we love. It was really addictive for me, and really easy to read.
Things I Liked :
I’m a sucker for any twin relationship and this one is no different. I like that Keeley and Zach are supportive of one another and genuinely care for each other. They have really cute talks and want to make sure they stay close with college coming up. It was just a really sweet and heart-warming relationship.
I really thought that Keeley struggling and questioning her future was really relatable and authentic. She’s feeling a little lonely because her brother and her best friend each have their own thing going on. They have direction and Keeley feels like she’s being left behind. I could empathize with Keeley and it helped me connect with her.
There is some grade A flirty banter in this book. The texts between Keeley and Talon and snappy and quick. They made me laugh out loud and get invest in their relationship.
Things I Liked Less :
I felt like I could have used more in the story as a reader. More development from side characters (Gavin’s relationship to Talon felt like it came out of nowhere, what about Nicky worrying about if she could go to college?), more development in Keeley and Talon’s relationship, more tension from the drama. It didn’t fall flat, but I think adding more would have made the story seem more fleshed out and well developed.
Talon was just o.k. to me. He was really funny and charming. BUT he was a little too secretive, a little too arrogant, a little too schmoozy. I’m glad that Keeley confronts him about not being upfront with her and making decisions for her, but I never really connected with him that much. I also never really got over what happened with Claire. I’m glad there was consequences in their relationship and they actually discussed how they felt, and what they would do moving forward, but I felt like his character was tainted. I didn’t really care for him after that reveal.
A fun and flirty read. Great to get you out of a slump. Even though this was a hundred percent predictable, I still highly enjoyed this. I love the cheesy tropes and the high school drama. It’s always so much fun and this book is no exception.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
