He knew this was a Pandora’s box, one he wouldn’t ever want to close.
Welcome to everyone who is following the blog tour for this book! I’m so pleased to be a part of it. I’d like to give a huge thank you to Ellie Pilcher for inviting me to be a part of this tour. While I am a part of the tour, I will always pride myself on honest reviews for every book, so let’s get straight into it!
I absolutely adored this book–it is exactly what I needed right now. Something light and fun, with a bit of me being frustrated at the narrators. A little background: Rosy has The Rule, which is to never date anyone close by. She seems like a believable and humorous person; right off the bat she compared a woman in her town to a velociraptor! I couldn’t help but laugh out loud at some of her thoughts. However, she was a bit too stringent on “The Rule” when Matt moved in next door and for a bit too long! But, it did become clear as to why she stayed strong on it later in the book.
Right away, Matt and Rosy have undeniable chemistry. The kind that bubbles under the surface like a volcano, only a bit of time until it explodes. But for both of them, hesitation, emotional baggage, and other things get in the way of their love. I moaned and groaned at all of these roadblocks, begging them to “just get on with it already!” But I enjoyed every moment of this book, dying to know the ending! Because it is told from both Rosy and Matt’s point of view, I enjoyed every misunderstanding and communication, and every thought about the other person that each character had, because I was this all-knowing reader that understood both sides of the story and was just waiting for the delightful moment when they caught up.
The plot is nothing mind-blowing or world-breaking, but it’s a absolutely lovely novel about two people coming together, each of them having their own story to tell and problems to work through throughout the book. If I had to compare it to anything, I would say it’s equivalent to watching a Hallmark Movie (which, by the way, are my absolute favorite things to watch in my free time). All together, I really enjoyed this book and found it a glorious light read, with believable characters and a good-natured plot.
