Gina needs a kidney transplant. She’s had kidney disease since she was a child, and the time has finally come to look for a donor. At her best friends New Years party she meets Angel, a loner workaholic, who instantly catches her eye.
I liked both characters a lot. I especially liked how Moody dealt with Gina’s embarrassment about having to ask her friends to support her and get tested to be a donor – it’s done in a sympathetic way that doesn’t inspire feelings of sorrow for Gina.
The growth in both Gina and Angel’s feelings for each other, and the acceptance of their past reasons for not letting themselves connect with other people is also done well.
i liked the cast of characters that make up their friendship groups, and the addition of the ‘Rainbow Warriors’ from the LGBTQ+ youth group is a nice touch in giving us more opportunities to get to know Gina.
There’s no crazy conflict, a heartwarming ending and genuine communication between the pair, making this a nice romance to read when you need a bit of a book hug.
I received an e-ARC directly from the author in exchange for an honest review.
