The light and fluffy style of this novel hide a deeply heartfelt centre. Josie’s see-sawing between over-confidence and total panic drives me nuts, but I remember being a new adult and wondering if I was ever going to figure it out. The relationship between Josie and James is cleverly handled, and the tension that ‘taking it to a new level’ creates is squirm-inducing. I really felt for both of them as they navigate this new stage. Very enjoyable rom-com with a difference.
