My question to the author would be if she was a teensy bit inspired by Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in BBC’s Pride and Prejudice? Because, I really got that vibe and loved it - ❤️❤️❤️❤️
And Lina is the most completely (sometimes infuriatingly) clueless woman in the world and it’s the better for us, because we get this adorable, frustratingly in love but can’t see it character and Daniel who has a lot of hidden depth.
On the one hand, this was hot and loooooong and just the swooniest, slowburniest romance that I’ve read in a while.
On the other, it’s not perfect - I found some of the romantic scenes clunky, sometimes Lina’s denseness was just too much and I wanted to try and smack some sense into her for not seeing what everyone else does.
But I found myself smiling at this story more often than not, really did enjoy it for the most part (excepting the parts I wrote about just above) and I am absolutely planning on reading this author’s future works.
