Actually while reading this story with so many positive reviews, I was pretty upset with myself for not liking it as much as I thought I would. The romance is very sweet and the chemistry between the main characters is heartwarming. This book deals with important issues. The biggest one being infertility. And even though, it dealt with heavy issues, it didn’t drown in it. There was always a fun, heartwarming moment and a swoon-worthy interaction between the main characters to balance things out.

But the reality was, for me, while many aspects of the story were emotionally moving and packed a punch, they were also contrived and convenient. In that sense, the story lost a lot of its emotional potential. I’m also not a fan of the overused love triangle.

This is a book where I understand why it gets so much love and high ratings, but I'm not able to get lost in the buzz.

My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book.
