I adored this book, and breezed right through it. It’s fun, sweet, and pretty funny at times.
Savannah and Lincoln are pretty awesome. I love how easy the banter is between them. You can tell there is a lot of history between these two, and how much Savannah feels for him. Even when she tries to deny any feelings at all.
Both are in a place of doubting who they are, and I appreciate how real it feels. Lincoln is dealing with no longer being able to play baseball. Savannah feels like if she lets herself fall down the rabbit hole with Lincoln, that she’ll be a hypocrite. You can feel their struggle and can’t help but hope they figure it out.
And this is sort of a second chance romance, which we all know are my bread and butter. I love them, and I love seeing how characters reconnect. Savannah does everything in her power to not fall for Linc’s charms and it’s ridiculously hard, and hilarious. I love her inner pep talks, even when I think she should just go with it, and see where it goes. I also love how hard Linc tries with her. He knows she’s wary of having anything to do with him, but he thinks of fun things to do just to be around her.
I loved every minute of this book, and I think you will to. It’s lighthearted and a quick read that will have you swooning and going all in with your heart.
