Hey, go read this book! It was so cute!!! I smiled so much! I was so happy while reading!

I requested this ARC on a whim. The cover looked cute and I figured, why not? And I am so glad that I did because this book was all kinds of cute. It was also a very quick and easy read which I completely devoured in one sitting.

My favorite thing about this book is how it is both the epitome of a fluffy romance and yet touches on so many deep and realistic topic. Marcus and April are adorable together and I shipped it from the very first time I even saw the cover. But they are also people dealing with emotional abuse from their respective parents and upbringings. They are both dealing with how the world perceives them due to their physical images.

Everyone (even his parents) thinks Marcus is a dim-witted pretty boy with no emotional or intellectual depth, who has nothing to offer the world other than his looks. Everyone (even her parents) sees April as unattractive due to the fact that she is a plus-sized woman. Everyone is then constantly wondering if Marcus is only pretending to like her since they cannot wrap their minds around the fact that they could end up together.

It was great to see these things discussed between them. It was even better watching the characters develop into people that no only loved each other but also loved themselves and believed in their own self-worth. 

I especially liked the way that April was portrayed as a confident woman who didn't much care what the world thought. It wasn't the power of love the suddenly turned her into a strong woman, she was always strong, Marcus just makes her happier. 

Overall, I had a great time reading this and I look forward to reading more of the author's books. I smiled so much while reading this book. It was the kind of book that just makes you happy to read, you know? Also, this is getting a sequel starting Marcus' best friend, Alex. I knew from the moment he was introduced in the story that he was getting his own story (titled Slow Burn , coming out  June 15th, 2021).

In the end, I totally recommend this for a quick, cute, and generally good read.

**I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.**

It was such a cute story! I totally recommend it. And that cover was definitely what first caught my eye. I really want to read more of her books!


Brenna I’m a quarter of the way through and also finding it adorable. Curious, though, because some authors turn their work into somewhat of a porno...does this go into detail of their sexual lives? I don’t want to get more committed only to find out it goes too far for me to enjoy anymore lol.

There are sex scenes in the book but they aren't the focus of the story, nor are they overly explicit, I think. I hate when authors turn the focus of the story into sex or when the scenes are overly detailed and I don't feel she did that here so you should be good, I hope!


Brenna I AGREE!!!! I kept reading and am loving the story too much to give it up, but the sex scene details were more than I wanted there to be lol. Oh well, I do love their main story. Thanks!
