What a book! This was one of my most anticipated rom-com picks for 2022, and it did not disappoint. This is a romance with depth and heart!

Russel and Ari team up to “Parent Trap” their bosses, but as they plot and scheme for others, real sparks start to fly between the two of them! The romance that unfolds is a messy reflection of real life that is beautiful and spicy! (That pajama scene! 🔥)

Solomon created characters that are authentic and loveable yet also flawed. When Ari got tipsy, threw her hair in a messy bun, and started problem solving… I wanted be her friend. And then there is Russel… Total sports dude that is sensitive and thoughtful and can also rock a dad-bod. I won’t even get started on how attractive it was to watch him with his daughter. Melt. My. Heart. These are characters I wanted to get to know and root for.

But they aren’t perfect. Solomon unpacks some important themes through Russel and Ari. Both are professional individuals dedicated to growth and success even while struggling. The focus on mental health, self-awareness, depression, therapy, and medication is well executed through these characters without ever feeling heavy handed. It brings an honest spotlight to its importance in a relevant and thought provoking way.

This book is a complete treat.

Thank you Rachel Lynn Solomon, Berkley, and Edelweiss for the opportunity to read and review an advanced copy of this book.
