I want to give a thank you to NetGalley for this arc in exchange for an honest review!
I requested this book off a whim of thinking that this kind of romance novel might be something that I’d enjoy. I didn’t go into this with any expectations so there couldn’t have been anything to disappoint me with.
I didn’t dislike this novel nor did I like it. It was as if I was reading it to read it. I didn’t feel any particular emotion towards this book. I think it might have had to do with the writing because it was way too informal for me. I understand why the author chose to do different character perspectives but it was too much.
This wasn’t as I was anticipating, I couldn’t connect with any of the characters because they’re not in the same social class as me and their age. I have nothing against people on Wall Street, it’s more of that I cannot connect with older adults who have a successful job and having a lot of money. I think if they had been more realistic as in, the constant going out, shopping and all that, instead they would stay inside on a Friday night or had some kind of response to the stress that they were going through would have made it more interesting. If the author hadn’t made them live basically in a perfect world, currently, then maybe things would have happened better.
The characters themselves were okay, they seemed like typical human beings, I didn’t really find one more interesting than the other. Usually, for me, I find characters more interesting and realistic during first-person perspectives but this time around, I didn’t unfortunately.
Overall, this was an okay novel. I think that if you have read this and enjoyed it, I’m happy. If you like cheesy, guilty pleasure reads, this book may be for you, even though it wasn’t for me.
