His wallet is a squashed leather medieval relic, run over by horse and cart a thousand times. I want to open it and read every single card and receipt. I want to sleep with it under my pillow.If you can relate to that, then this book is for you. On the other hand, if you've never wanted to sleep with your beloved's wallet, then perhaps it is a good idea to stay away.
It pains me to say this, but Sally Thorne peaked with The Hating Game and that was it.

“I’m fairly inexperienced at these things, but this feels like a really romantic setting."
"It is. You’re finally noticing that?”
🌷 i don't know what's up... i love sally thorne's writing, i think she's super witty and i love the way her heroes are always enraptured by the heroine pretty early on and it comes out in rly cute, specific ways... but idk i just can never get into the romance. i always end up hella bored
🌷 also... i just don't like ruthie. there, i said it. she's a sweet girl but possibly one of the most boring heroines i've ever read. and teddy is just eh, not much to swoon over. they had more of a platonic relationship too imo
🌷 melanie was the best character and from the very start i was wishing it was her book. give her a book! 😤
🌷 renata and aggie were also great side characters, i loved how well teddy vibed w them and was even one step ahead of them sometimes lmao. overall tho, the retirement home setting was a bust for me
🌷 anyway, it took me a long time to get through this book and i'm pretty sure it put me in a slump byE
Clever, funny, and unforgettable story of a muscular, tattooed man hired as an assistant to two old women—under the watchful eye of a beautiful retirement home manager.*chef's kiss*
One of the “benefits” of working in the front office of Providence Retirement Villa is I receive feedback on every aspect of my lifestyle and appearance, whether I want it or not. (I do not.) Here are the three questions the residents always have for me:
•How old are you? (Twenty-five)
•Do you have a boyfriend? (No)
•Why not? (Miscellaneous reasons, none of which will satisfy them)
