I would cut out a massive chunk out of the second half of the book. It was dull, boring, and could have ended much quicker.
The only thing that kept this going was the fluffy romance of it, so for that reason, I was able to actually finish it. It does deliver on the romance.
Someone who uses different voices for different characters. I got confused sometimes as to who was talking. But other than that, she was okay.
Not read anything by this author again.
Read like a bad fanfiction written in a day.
