➦This book fell a little bit short for me. Some parts of this book I really liked but some parts were just “ok.”
➦The plot is nothing too original, it has been done before. Two best friends make a pact to get married at the age of 30 in the case of them still being single by then.
➦One thing I do like about Karina Halle’s writing is that her characters are very well developed. This book just didn’t do it for me because of the created drama, which in my eyes was so unnecessary that I had a major episode of eye rolling. The reason for the break-up between two main characters was kind of pathetic. I didn’t buy it for one second. Nobody is that selfless! It made Linden look like a complete wimp and I didn’t think he deserved a HEA. I was still pissed at him and I wanted to slap him with a rotten fish.
