I liked this story. It was a quick and easy read, which was exactly what I was looking for. The opening chapter is fuelled with angst, but from then on you have a beautiful love story centring around Reggie and Chrissy.
There were times when I felt the pace lagged a bit and I was excited to get to the next chapter. Also, there was sometimes more detail than needed to be in a section of the book, but that was outweighed by the romance playing out between Reggie and Chrissy.
The chemistry between Chrissy and Reggie was active and prominent throughout. I was backing them to get together from the start and when they did, it made my heart flutter.
I heard this was originally a ‘Once Upon A Time’ fanfic and when I heard that, I was surprised I hadn’t clicked myself as I enjoy reading that verse often. I’ll go looking for more fanfic from Jazzy Mitchell because she’s left me intrigued with this novel.
