My Rating; 4.5*s
My Review; I loved this novella. It was great, but I really felt that it could have been longer. The main characters had such great chemistry and I would have liked to have gotten to know most of the other characters better too.
Other than the length I really enjoyed this story. It was just a light, quick read. Which was something that I really needed lately.
I would recommend this novella. I'd also read more by this author.
