I love how Micah is. I love Andrew and Sophia’s give and take of insults. Kyle needs to hop off of the love of his car. Sophia’s mom, oof. That does not sound like a goood thing. Jett is ROOOOOOOD. Sophia is a bit dramatic with the whole notebook situation, but I mean.... it happens. It’s true.
On Chapter 18, Soph ma girl. You need to quit insulting Andrew’s dad.
Also, AAAGGHHHHHHH! The boathouse scene! 😍😢
But whoa. I so already did not like Sophia’s mom (Larissa) but that’s a whole new level with Gunnar. Like how can you just allow that with your kid? Or say that your daughter is too big for her britches. 😤"
Side note, we really need to give waiters/waitresses more credit.
WHO GOES IN FOR A HANDSHAKE?!
I’m so happy that Gunnar is okay, Andrew stood up to his dad and yessss, finally her mother came through.
Micah, I feel for you, but girl you need to talk (preaching to the choir).
Those were my thoughts while reading the book.
I will say this as I have been saying. I LOVE Kasie West books. I am complete trash for them. But, I also have not been 100% been loving her past couple of books. But this one. OMG. This one is so freaking cute. It is a light, amazing fluffy read. I read it in all of a day (like most of her books). I’m in love all over again. I am so so happy that I listened to my friend and read this. It took me a bit, but I got there! I was just in the middle of other books. I do love the fact that you see glimpses here and there to show the fact that they are into each other. I loved the best friend relationship Sophie and Micah shared. Also, the many realizations that Sophie went through and coming to appreciate her single parented mother and finally told her dad that he needed to hop on the better parenting horse and he started to actually try!!! Anyways, I’m in love. Thank you, thank you for this book Kasie West. Can’t wait to read Listen to Your Heart and now also, Moment of Truth!
Literally no question. This is literally so good. It is a different style than her other books, but super engaging. I loved it! If you don’t like it, I don’t know what is going on inside your brain, 6/5!!! Love ya!
