This was really good. Deliciously so.
I’ll admit, I was skeptical at first because Poe, one of the main characters, seemed to be a little, immature pain-in-the-you-know-what, but the character growth is so fantastic it’s worth putting up with his tomfoolery. Not only does the younger main character in this May-December romance grow exponentially but the older character has some of his own growth moments as well. (By the way, the two of them together is like whoa. I’m not really a fan of the particular kink these two get up to, but that chemistry.)
I was pleasantly surprised by what the conflict ultimately ended up being about. And the way it was resolved worked so well. This is what I need contemporary romance to be: realistic conflicts that resolve because the characters act like adults. Also, I really liked the different interpretation of the second chances trope in this.
