this book felt plot heavy but also lacking at the same time and i didn‘t know how to feel while reading. don‘t know if i just never had this kind of experience, but this book dramatized high school popularity. it felt like watching a movie, and it felt unrealistic. i always love the sort of anonymity that surrounds these kinds of love stories. our main characters are very lovable. i loved the smut and the epilogue!!

i LOVED this!! the childhood friends who had a falling out to lovers trope omg! i also love when they truly know that they are with their best friend. i love the spilling your deepest darkest secrets to a stranger. i also loved the whole concept of aveena being part of the group only by association, but the group helping her discover more about herself; i feel like i related to aveena a lot within the book.

“I‘d sink my own ship to keep him afloat. But I can‘t. So, instead… I give him all of me, and hope like hell that it‘s enough.”

-Aveena, Chapter 25, Page 373

their love for each other, though sometimes a little bit toxic, was so strong and powerful. i loved their dynamic, and i love how this quote shows how strong they are for each other.

though the start was a tad slow, and though it was nothing like the netflix series, i really enjoyed this book. i love that you don‘t know who whistledown is yet. i also adore kate and anthony. i love their love, and their slow burn. it‘s love that makes you appreciate life, and i think their honesty with each other and love is beautifully written. reading this book made me want to read the rest of the series!

blurb
juleskr02

“Was it possible to fall in love with the same man over and over again, every single day?”

-Chapter 22, Page 410

this. it‘s all i really aim for in my hopeless romantical adventure to find my person. to share a love so strong you know it‘ll never run out. ugh.

“It means that love isn‘t about being afraid that it will all be snatched away. Love‘s about finding the one person who makes your heart complete, who makes you a better person than you ever dreamed you could be. It‘s about looking in the eyes of your wife and knowing, all the way to your bones, that she‘s simply the best person you‘ve ever known.”

-Anthony Bridgerton, Chapter 22, Page 407

blurb

“And even if she did fall in love with him— well, she‘d simply have to keep it to herself. There was really nothing else to do.”

-Chapter 15, Page 286

ah yes, secret love for fear it is unrequited. something i found oh so special about this love story is how long it took for them to bring their deep feelings into their reality

a wonderful, lighthearted enemies-to-lovers with some really fun and romantic scenes. i enjoyed myself while reading so much i couldn‘t put it down all day! ah i love love! i‘m not sure if i really enjoyed the climax all that much; the turning point with the antagonist went on for so long and it really just made me want to punch a wall. i was so frustrated! but the epilogue! pure joy and pure love and wow i hate being single.

i honestly really enjoyed this book! i love romanticizing the 70s, i love rock & roll, i love passionate love stories! it was a really fun read that kept me invested from start to finish. it made me want to listen to all of their songs and go to a concert. i also liked the interview format in which the book was written! i‘ve never read anything like that before, and it was super fun!

i‘m not gonna lie, i lowkey ate this up. i don‘t think colleen hoover‘s writing is anything amazing, but i enjoyed the intensity of this book. wasn‘t a fan of the ending. i‘m not sure i enjoyed reading a novel where i have no idea what‘s real and what‘s not. also the entire opening scene was not necessary. while some aspects lacked in depth and characterization, the suspense locked me in. overall a captivating read.

though somewhat predictable at times, this novel threw me for a loop. i loved the narration, the storytelling, the representation, etc. the courtroom scene is great. love jordan‘s return from nineteen minutes. the final plot twist toward the end was crazy! i think some of lily‘s chapters fell flat toward the end but olivia‘s chapters never failed and the story overall progressed at a decent pace!
