I have seen this book a few places and finally decided to pick it up.  I’m certainly glad I did. It was super cute! I love an enemies to lovers type book and this one did not disappoint.  The banter between Carline and Simon was fantastic. Banter, in my opinion, is so important in a rom-com.  

I enjoyed the story and the friend dynamics of the group, however, I had a very hard time keeping track of who was who.  Simon and Caroline were lovely and I really enjoyed watching their relationship grow. There was one glaring thing that bothered me throughout this whole book.  Caroline, and I will put this delicately, not just taking matters into her own hands. I felt her obsession with her “missing O” was completely over the top and frankly unbelievable.  Had that been left out I would have enjoyed this book far more.  

This book was quite funny.  While I never laughed out loud it did often bring a smile to my face. It was a cute quick read with lots of romance and comedy.
