Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

The moment I got this book, I jumped straight into this book. I just needed to start this one.

Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this for free. Please note that this will not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing has really good pacing. It just pulled me into the book straight away and it made the book fly by. I really loved the dialogue because of the witty and entertaining to read. There were definitely some swoon-worthy exchanges. I did find a couple of inconsistencies. The book was set in South Africa but a lot of food products talked about the book was in dollars whereas other things were in rands. 

Plot Thoughts:

This plot was so romance-y and I loved it so freakin' much. The plot starts off in very typical fashion but it opens up to a deeper plot which was so great. I really enjoyed the more intense moments that was in between the more fluffy and adorable moments. This book will definitely have you staying up late at night because it is just so much fun to read. I really enjoyed everything that happened in the book except for a scene here or there where there were a few scenes of women hating on other women. 

Character Thoughts:

I liked how Ben wasn't this jackass from the get-go instead he is an absolute sweetheart and had me swooning from the second chapter. I loved how both characters weren't these perfect beings. I did think that they weren't fleshed out but this worked well with this novel.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me why I love romance so much because it shows how much fun reading a book can be. I loved how the book was set in South Africa and in particular, Johannesburg. The writing was perfectly paced but there were some small inconsistencies. The plot was enjoyable and just made me squeal out loud a couple of times. I loved the relationship between JJ, Bruce and Sera. Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,
Melleny
