A well-written romance with a fun, interesting couple. I loved the chemistry between heroine and hero. I also loved the friendship between the Wallflowers. I wish more had been done with the girls' actually.

Locke & Key, Vol. 1 by Joe Hill

The only thing I didn't like was Reyes. I get it: he's dark and tortured (often literally). I still don't think it gives him the right to treat Charley the way t

The chemistry between the heroine and hero wasn't always convincing but I did want to see how they would navigate the obstacles that were keeping them apart. Fun ending if a bit too perfect.
