This is a friends-to-lovers themed book, something I really enjoy. I really believer in the friendship between them. They had a long history that was portrayed well. They also had chemistry, which made their transition to lovers believable.Where I struggled was the lack of communication between them. As best friends, they should have been able to talk about anything. Instead they internalized too much and acted angsty and emo. When they were together and not focussing on their own conclusions, the story was great. That just needed to happen a bit more to make this a great read.
