“I’m starting to wonder if this is what being in love is. Being okay with ripping yourself to shreds, so the other person can stay whole.”
Even more than the romance, this book was amazing in the way in portrayed the importance of friendship. Olive’s friends and the way they supported each other was really quite wonderful and I love the book for being more layered than just a cut and dry romance.

Now on to Olive and Adam… having almost exclusively read romance in February, I had very recent familiarity with love-t0-hate romances and I really did enjoy this one. Both characters felt three dimensional and with their own history and reasons for feeling one way or another. I think with all books in this genre, they’re most enjoyable if you don’t try and pick them apart, and overall I very much enjoyed watching their relationship blossom. I also appreciated that the sole reason for the third act drama wasn’t just miscommunication, and again it was more layered and had depth.
