The Characters:


The Story:
A quick, cute tale about love that is not as unrequited as we think. Britta and Sumner have brilliant chemistry and I always forget what filthy mouths Ms. Bailey’s heroes have. 🥵… (mais)

Stella is an ex-convict that has been gifted her dream opportunity as a window dresser. Though Stella had been in prison for four years and only released a month ago, her focus shifts with amazing ease from re-establishing the life put on hold to romance with her boss. It’s very on par for a rom-com, so don’t expect too much out of it. Since this revealed pretty early on Stella’s criminal history, there was potential to explore re-entry and the challenges of it. It’s hinted at but not explored in depth. Although it takes place during Christmas, it’s not very Christmasy.

That being said, it was a cute and very quick read. I powered through it in a day. For something lightweight with no expectations, this fits the bill. Stella and Aiden are cute enough together to make you root for them.

I'd give it 0 if possible

Awful, and I love cliche chick lit. Just terrible in all ways. And the sex scenes were just cringeworthy. I would pay this author money to never write again.

Hannah Bellinger and Fox Thornton have been texting almost daily since she left the small fishing village of Westport, Washington to return to her day job as a production assistant for a small film company in LA. The two have become unlikely close friends and so when Hannah comes back to Westport, this time to work on a film, she's more than happy to stay with Fox as her sister's guest room is full with other family. Being in close proximity again, however, highlights that Hannah and Fox's friendship might be more than that. But Fox's baggage from a lifetime being seen as the town's lady's man may be more than their fledgling romance can take.

Browsing my local library's romance section, I picked this one up on a whim to sample Tessa Bailey's writing. While I'd definitely give another of her books a try, this one didn't quite win me over. Friends to lovers is one of my favourite tropes and while that territory often comes with a bit of angst, this one was VERY angst heavy. Fox spends a LOT of time feeling unworthy of Hannah because of his reputation, which is fair as character trait, but didn't make for particularly fun reading. And there's a bunch of waffling about whether they should get together at all. There were some funny moments and Bailey's writing is decent, which is what kept me sticking with the book to the end. However, the epilogue was pretty saccharine, even for someone who loves a sappy happy ending. Ultimately a read that I'd describe as fine enough but there are much better romances out there.
