Review :

After reading the title I had in mind a story which I would describe with words like sweet or romantic. Of course most books also include a not so “glittery shiny part”, but I also didn’t expect a badass story with a horrible past. So what I got is a sweet story with a darker, but still not too dominant background-story. And I love it! In my opinion the best part of this book is the way the both protagonist interact with each other. It was so much fun to see their relationship develop! In combination with the emotions almost perfectly described within the writing-style that is really comfortable while reading. This book was an easy read, which touched me , but also made me smile-it is one of those book that just tell you a story that deals with some hurdles, but at the same time makes you smile from time to time. Don’t expect a story with major twists or dramatical elements- just be open-minded for a sweet romance novel. One that works with some flashbacks that in general are great to add another dimension to the story, but at the same time can be a little bit confusing. This is the reason I rated this book with “only” 4.5 Stars. At the end I just can say how happy I am that I was able to read this ARC by Clara Stone. An author that I hope will write more books I am already looking forward to.
