I didn’t enjoy the structure of the book at first – it’s written in alternating chapters between the past and the present for the majority of the book. However, this is very much a me thing – I found myself uncomfortable in the past chapters knowing that we were working towards the breakup of two people that in the present chapters are obviously meant to be together despite protestations. By the time we actually got to the breakup though I’d become much more comfortable with the structure and was actually beginning to enjoy it.
Kate in the present frustrated me for at least half of the book – her feelings for Lauren were clear and in typical me fashion I just wanted to shake this fictional character out of her own head. I did however love her sarcasm, her attitude towards parenting and her character in general. I loved the secondary characters of both daughters. Their sweet relationship and meddling in their mothers lives ended up making the story for me much more believable for me.
Whilst fairly predictable in its outcome, this is an enjoyable book that I would recommend reading when you’re looking for a well written, well paced romance with some attitude on the side.
I received an e-ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
