“I’m not prepared for this,” I admit quietly.
“Do you have to prepare for me?”
“If there’s anyone I have to prepare for, it’s you.”
I’ve never read any of Christina Lauren’s books before, but I adore her writing. There’s something soothing, tender, and real about it. It’s so simple but hits you right in the feels.
Although I’ve read too many love stories a lot like this in the past, I still liked the story of love and friendship between the main characters Macy and Elliot.
The story is told in alternating periods: when they were teenagers sharing a reading closet and the books they loved and their favorite words at the moment, and 11 years later when they bump into each other again at a coffee shop.
It tells the story of how they became the best of friends, and how they fearfully but delightfully transitioned to being boyfriend and girlfriend.
It also tells how one simple mistake turned their worlds upside down.
It’s a bit cheesy, but not too cheesy that you’d want to throw the book across the room. But you’d be cheesy, too, if you saw the love of your life all of a sudden after they disappeared from your life for 11 years.
I can already see the Netflix film adaptation of this in my head. LOL, but yes please make it happen.
