It feels like it's been so long since I've read a Sara Ney book. And when I read the blurb for this, I was so excited. So here I was on a nice quiet Sunday thinking I'd read a few chapters before I did some housework and 6 hours later, I've accomplished nothing except finishing the book. Oh, and laughing randomly like a lunatic.


I'm not sure what exactly I was expecting when I started this story, but it was seriously laugh out loud at moments. Lizzy was my sort of leading lady. I liked that she wasn't scared to be herself and ask the awkward questions. But from the first meeting of Brodie, I was in love. His little inner monologues were so similar to things that come out of my husband's mouth. I loved it.


I think we are still all semi conditioned in our thinking of generally everything but especially gender roles. And I loved Brodie acknowledging that he didn't want to do it just because he was wielding a penis. Snake coming for us my hubby's got this; mouse, well let's hope he can get off the bench and stop screaming once I've gotten it outside. People see this six foot, muscled, meathead and are shocked that he's so confident in stepping back and handing me the tools. So, listening to Brodie moaning in his head about toxic masculinity absolutely made my day.


The whole course of their relationship was so sweet and against the usual flow. I couldn't get enough of it. And I seriously can't wait to see what everyone else thinks of Brodie and Lizzy.
