3.5 stars!

The uber adorable cover is an excellent representation of just how much I enjoyed this book. I’ve always been a big fan of the makeover trope and when the person getting made over happens to be a charming bespectacled geek with a penchant for Star Wars and root beer floats; the happy feels could not be contained.

Tawna Fenske’s writing style was fun and refreshingly witty, with Ben and Holly’s laugh out loud hilarious banter being the main draw. There were even hints of emotional depth sprinkled in between all the hot kisses. Like how Ben’s makeover didn’t change who he was but instead, improved upon the already amazing person he had always been. Falling for Ben meanwhile opened up Holly’s closed off heart and got her to take risks she never thought she attempt to try again.
Was Holly and Ben's romance insta-lust/love in nature? Yes. But it still worked for me regardless. The end chapters were especially satisfying when it came to character and relationship progression, as well as being super cute.

I highly recommend this to anyone seeking a sexy read that is punctuated by lots of giggles and heartwarming moments. I’m super excited to read Miriam’s book next.
