How happy am I when I get approved to get an Abigail Strom ARC from Net Galley!?! I can’t even express my joy. I just love her grasp of the nerdy mind, be it male or female.
Having an older sister who is beautiful, kind, caring, and loved by everyone that meets her this story struck a chord with me. I love my sister to pieces and didn’t have the same problems with her as Jane had with her sister Sam. But I get the gist of her feelings. Those feelings you don’t ever really fully admit to because your sister IS a wonderful person and you just can’t hold that against her.
The way Caleb comes to slowly realize that he not only has feelings for Jane, but has had them for a while, is very realistic. It helps it seem not so insta-love and not so unrequited love but a true deep friendship to love. Jane and Caleb may try to fight it tooth and nail, but that’s what this is for sure.
There are parts of this story that ripped my heart out. But in true Abigail Strom fashion I would be laughing a page later. That’s one of the things I love about her writing. She can evoke a gamut of emotions in her readers.
