What first drew me to this book was the cover! It’s so vibrant and fun that I knew immediately that I needed to read this story. After reading the blurb, I was further intrigued.
Rena and Axel are two characters previously mentioned in Harte’s other books but since I haven’t read those stories, I began this story without any previous information or backstory. What I liked about this story was that you absolutely don’t need to have any backstory to understand the character dynamics; everything is explained and it only takes a couple of chapters to understand the who’s who of the side characters. The story itself was also very sweet and I always enjoy a story that begins with a silly bet. However, I unfortunately struggled to connect with the characters and their budding relationship. They were very sweet, lovely people but I just didn’t feel a strong connection to either of them.
I think this story had a lot of potential and I would be eager to try more stories from Harte in the future. If you like fluffy, light-hearted romances, give this one a try!
