Okay wow this book was amazing. Bet you guys are tired of me saying that. Not my fault I’m reading a ton of great books.
But anyways, this book deals with death and this very close to my heart. Dating someone older is also something I relate to just not a teacher.
I think the grief is so real and the story and romance is just beautiful. Like forreal such goals! I love how CoHo focused on the romance but throws in more important things like death and grief. She does that in every one of her books and I love it.
I gave this a 5 out of 5 stars. I absolutely loved it. It is new adult so 17+ but otherwise I think everyone should read it!
Until Next Time,
