Looking back on this book, I probably shouldn’t have read it. There are quite a few things about it that just aren’t my favorite: I don’t really care for books about famous people, I’ve read soooo many books with this trope, and unless it’s Ed Westwick, I’m just not a fan for English accents in audiobooks. I don’t know what it is but I feel like they always end up picking people that sound really old and therefore not sexy. Which is always awkward when listening to them narrate a romance book. But, this series had so many great reviews from blogger friends that I ignored all of that and read the book anyway. Sadly, although I didn’t think the book was bad at all, it just wasn’t one of my favorites.
I think my main issue with the book was that nothing particularly stood out for me. I’ve read lots and lots of books where a fake romance turns into a real romance so it was kind of hard to find anything…special from this particular story. I liked the characters and I even liked the romance, but that’s all it was. I just liked it. I didn’t love it. I wasn’t itching to get back to the book to see when they would finally kiss or when they would finally realize they have real feelings for each other. When I did get to those parts, it was good and nice, but I guess I want something more than good and nice when it comes to romance.
Richard and Lainey started off hating each other, which is one of my favorite tropes. Although I liked how it was done for the most part, I kind of felt like ‘oh I guess they like each other now?’ instead of me feeling the underlying tension. It kind of just felt like it was brought on abruptly. I can see why other readers are loving this book, but I just don’t think it was the right book for me for personal preference reasons.
