My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a slow paced emotional, age gap, forbidden romance and if you like a slow paced romance than this one is for you. It was a little too slow for my liking which is the reason for my 3.5 star rating. Della and Theo’s story is an emotional one and it’s good, but was missing something that I just can’t put my finger on. I couldn’t connect with these characters and found myself skimming because it took too long for their story to go anywhere. Their story did pick up some steam toward the end and I did get into it a little more than, but it was just a little too late for me. B. Celeste is a wonderful writer, love her work and look forward to more of her books.
Happy Reading Everyone!!!
