I normally am not for YA romances but gosh, this is brilliant. I loved the diverse characters she uses. This is the first book like this I've read where the lead guy is Persian. And can I just say YYUMMMMMM?!?!?! I felt like both characters had great development and were well written. Normally I'm wary of insta love in YA books but Kathryn made it work in a beautiful and actual believable way. This book was super adorable as it was heart warming. I was glued to every page falling in love with our main characters as their relationship developed. Thank you Kathryn for giving me this book in exchange for my honest review! 5 stars from me!
