The characters seem a bit off putting at first but it’s just their charm. The story is sweet and the author will throw you for a few loops. It seems like it would be hardcore at the beginning of the book, but honestly it’s more vanilla than you’d think (not that that’s a bad thing). Anyway, I completely recommend.
