Wonderful wonderful story.
Love this story! One of the best I have read in too long!
Literally the best book I’ve read in yours. I giggled. I sighed. I loved. I could read it again and again.
Cute, well written, enjoyable novel - very few editing issues but it was extremely drawn out almost as if it had to meet a word count HEA with likable characters
