Oozes cheesy love

A bit over cheesy but I still really enjoyed. A bit annoying at times as there were too many silly misunderstandings but as I said I enjoyed it all the same

Annoying

The struggle was real with this book.

After 5 attempts to listen to the story I finally managed to get to the end of it. It was so disappointing, the plot was predictably, throughout the book it was slushy drivel, where nothing much happens.
Freya (I think that's her name) is Wet, annoying and needs a reality slap.

I feel like I was cheated out of a title for my 241

Gaah!

I have really enjoyed the authors previous books, but my enjoyment of this book was overshadowed by the incredible annoying, whining, stupidly insecure, self-destructive, self-centered main character, Freya. My ears are bleeding after listening through her many tedious internal monologues. The highlight of this book was definitely the loveable and awkward character Finn.
