This book deserves all of the stars, if I could choose more than 5 I absolutely would. I’ve been invested in Romeo and Stella from the start, and Meghan Quinn delivered an epic love story, full of snark, love, hilariousness, and so much freaking steam for these two.
Stella is full of sass and seemed so sure of herself and what she wanted when we first met her in ‘See Me After Class’. But we dive into a different side of Stella in this story, she’s more vulnerable and in a constant internal battle about what she thinks she does or doesn’t deserve. Brock is the swoony, alpha male you can’t help but love. He can be broody and snarky, but he can be so sweet and kind at the same time. They were friends first, and turned into ‘enemies’, and watching them switch back towards friendship and something more seriously warmed my soul.
I adored every single thing about this story. There were parts that had my wanting to jump into the book and smack both Stella and Brock, there were parts that had me in tears (both happy and sad), and there were also parts that had me laughing out loud.
Meghan Quinn has this uncanny ability to create these characters and these worlds and make you wish they were real. These characters are people I want to be friends with. The highs and the lows of this story felt so real, and that’s all in part to Meghan’s amazing skills as an author. She’s quite simply amazing, and each and every story she writes just keeps getting better and better! This was the exact story that Brock and Stella needed, and that I needed for them.

“She went home with someone else that night?”
Hearing the disbelief from my best friend’s mouth makes the events of my failed date sting that much more.
I would like to make it known, I have a lot more swagger than what it seems. I don’t normally ask a girl out, have her fail to recognize it’s a date, and then give me a high five–as if I’m her wingman–and take off with someone else.
No. Normally I’m the one taking the girl home but with Stella, it’s been one failed attempt after another and frankly, I’m done trying.
But thanks to my best friend getting married in Hawaii right before the school year starts, I’m stuck on a tropical island, watching Stella parade around in what she claims is a bathing suit.
Unfortunately, that’s not the worst of it, just the tip of the iceberg. Because what I think is going to be a relaxing vacation, avoiding the one girl I can’t seem to make it work with, has turned into a spectacle of being recruited as Stella’s doting fake fiancé so she can save face with an old “friend” from high school.
Now I’m navigating through purgatory while trying not to get turned on by the way she holds my hand or kisses my jaw. It’s all fake, that’s what I keep telling myself, even though it feels entirely too real.
