This book is brilliant.
Laugh-out-loud funny, heartwarming, swoony. He falls first and hard. I wouldn’t class it as a real enemies-to-lovers romance, as they only dislike each other during their first meeting. After that, they work really well together — up until the big third act crash. Their fake relationship feels real from the start, and there’s a legitimate reason for them to fake it — and their falling out is as character driven as their falling in love is.
This is such a heartwarming and well crafted romance. I could kick myself that I almost skipped it because of the corny title.
There’s only one thing bugging me: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CAT?
It’s Schrödinger’s cat in fiction.
The Quote most hounding me
I imagine going home to my cat and explaining we have to take him off wet food because Mamma lost another job. I should have adopted a cat with less expensive taste.
This is the only place the cat is ever mentioned throughout the whole book. Shortly after, Amelia moves in with Cole, and there never is another mention of the cat. Is it imaginary? Does it exist? Does it remain in the old apartment, alive until proven dead? I really wondered if the cat was just hypothetical, but even so, that should have been made clear in the text, and that sentence up there is ambiguous at best.
- fake engagement
- accidental pregnancy
P.S. SAVE THE CAT!
