4.5 ⭐
I haven't read a romance in a while so I decided to buddy read this with the amazing Malka and I am SO glad I did because we had a blast chatting about this book together!
I had so much fun reading this and will 100% be buying my own copy to re-read in the future. Everything from the relatable MC to the hilarious banter was so much fun to read!

The only thing I'll say, is that while I found Olive's stress-baking particularly relatable and appreciated her being a "bigger" character, I would have appreciated the authors actually clarifying whether or not she was plus-size, especially because there are so few plus size women (or men, for that matter) in romance media. You don't get the credit, if you don't put in the work.
