Both MCs were easy to identify with in some way or another. They were well written, rounded characters, with plenty of geek culture, a bit of sport and no particularly intense relationship angst.
I loved how Willa was written and could identify wholeheartedly with the ‘you play sport so you can’t be smart’ sentiments. There are so many easily relatable aspects to Van as well.
The book isn’t technically a standalone, as it’s part of a series (not all of the books in the series are by the same author), but as far as I’m aware it’s the only one in the series where two women fall for each other. I have no idea if any of the characters are in any of the previous books, but you certainly don’t need to read any of them to enjoy this book.
Parker doesn’t normally write wlw books, but based on this one I’d be willing to give any others she might try in the future a go. All in all if you’re looking for a fun, easy read this is very good option to go with.
