I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book, but in the end, I think I enjoyed it.
Luke was not super charming to me, but I did like his notes on his window. He was persistent in reaching out to her and was great in reminding her how interested he was. He never faltered in his trust and what not in Mia which was very admirable. My heart would also break for him each time Mia pulled away. Like, he was so committed and it just made me ache for him and his little broken heart.
I wasn't really physically attracted to him either? I think that might be why I didn't find him *that* charming. Possibly it was the constant reminder that he was ripped and I'm not really into the guys with giant muscles. Just a personal preference.
Also, it was annoying how Mia liked Luke, but then she was like, i can't do this with him. But then she would say, but I like him so much! but i can't date him. Pick a side, woman! Dadgum. Also, she always doubted, like the whole book, whether he liked her or not. Like, he proved over and over how much he liked her and she was still like, oh. i don't know. maybe I'm just *another girl* to him. Ugh.
I was intrigued enough to read the whole book though so that's a plus. I think it was my lack of interest in the characters that led to my lack of investment in their relationship which led to my less than stellar rating. But, I didn't hate the book.
