Very briefly After seeing the unfortunate movie tie in edition’s cover I had an Oh No It’s a Romance moment So I read disregarding the cover defiantly at times And I read Read And all of the sudden the airiness of the text the nice use of iteration and variation and as much as I hate to say the plot began working in my favor uotes won’t really do for this one at least not uotes of the sort I like to liberate It’s the absence of text the lightest hint of language that makes it work so well Comfortable language cozy gentle If you wondered it’s not a Romance not really it’s merely romanticFive stars without ualification Right book at the right timeThis is not really a view this is
