The story is cute but the execution needed some work.

First, I found the synopsis a little bit misleading. It gave me the impression that the story would start around the time that Ellen leaves to join Jag in LA. Not the case. That doesn't even happen until the 70% mark or so.

Instead, the first 70% is a rehash of their relationship from when they were kids onwards. It's nice to see these two together instead of just being told about it; it helps you to see the type of relationship they have. It's cute and adorable and it's what you want in a BFF to lovers story.

But as the years pass, their maturity sure doesn't. I still felt like I was reading about the 14 Ellen who was in love with the slightly older--but not maturer--Jag when they read their 20s. And it shows when the shit starts to hit the fan.

This is one of those romance stories where the romance is first and foremost. Character development gets shunned in favour of drama; sexy times replace much needed relationship communication. It just missed those key components for me. ( )
