I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Lydia Drake is a reader of all things romance and a drinker of all things tea. A New Jersey resident, her favorite activities include taking the train to New York City, scouring used bookstores, spending time with her family, and wrangling her hyperactive cockapoo puppy.
“Don’t do it.”
I enjoyed how this story came together. The characters were well done, the representation was solid, and the imagery was lovely.
Susannah was such a brilliant leading lady. I loved how brave she was. How determined and how fearlessly she went after what she wanted.
Rafe was such a bold character. I enjoyed the opposites attract, grumpy, and sunshine trope was played. I also loved that the steamy scenes were just extra pizzazz for this storyline, but the relationships and following your passions were the actual plot.
This book flowed nicely, emotions were used realistically, and I enjoyed the feminist aspects. It was great seeing the support of freedom displayed throughout this book.
