Featured Tropes: Friends to Lovers / Slow-pace romance

Book Strengths:
The book, in general, is good; the plot is interesting and there is important growth character for both main characters. Both had very deep issues and even when takes a bit for them to get through, we can witness their changes and be happy about them.

Book weaknesses:
The pace is very slow, I like slow-paced romances but this one is much slower than I have expected. For some, it could be a good feature though. Also, Avery sometimes is very inconsistent, annoying and some features are not very believable.

Character Chemistry:
Kadence looks a bit more stable and likable than Avery, who is way too obnoxious and immature at the beginning. As the book progresses Avery becomes more likable and at the end is the one who grows the most. The chemistry between them is there, dancing around during the whole book. And as long as Avery behaves is stronger, by the time they solve their issues and grow personally and together their chemistry is more tangible.

Heat Rating (out of 5 flames): 🔥(1.5)
