Find on Goodreads:
“It’s not being in love that makes me happy. It’s the person that I’m in love with that does.”
When I first received this story, I thought it would be a quick, so-so read that an author wrote about a couple finding romance while quarantined during COVID-19. I mean, I figured a few authors would put out romances along that line during this current crisis. Boy was I WRONG. It’s not a COVID-19 romance, the virus/pandemic is mentioned and is a part of the story, but it’s not the main story. This is an all-consuming love story. You can feel it. It’s has love, friendship, heartbreak, successes, misunderstandings. It kept me interested. I couldn’t put it down because I NEEDED to know that these two were going to be okay. The characters are relatable, funny, compassionate; I was vested in them and their story. Hayden is the perfect hero; he’s a regular guy, a great friend, a person with morals, values, integrity – I want him as my boyfriend and I’m married! Sloane is a hoot and I want to go clubbing with her! The banter is outrageous, it’s dry and witty and fun. They have an undeniable connection and there’s no mistaking it. There’s a twist or two that you don’t see coming. Their love is fast, but we get the full journey – a complete story, not a find love, breakup, reunite story. You feel you know these characters. This is CJ Loomis first book and he delivered big time. My advice to him, keep writing!
