This is a very good friends-to-lovers romance set in college. Having not read anything from the author before I was new to her writing.
I really enjoyed Ella and Ryan’s story! Ryan is your typical college jock; handsome and popular. Him and Ella have many things connecting them and he’s her confidant and sounding board when things get rough. Everything changes, when on Ella’s 21st birthday they sleep together. The next morning Ella is mortified and wants to forget everything when Ryan wants to do it again!
Through the book they see them trying to maintain their friendship by being with other people. This is foolish of them if you ask me, there are feelings between them!! Ella’s behavior frustrated me many times and I actually wanted to shook her to right her mind!
