Andie had it all planned out.
When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future.
Important internship? Check.
Amazing friends? Check.
Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks).
But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life.
Because here’s the thing—if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected.
And where’s the fun in that?
This is officially my favorite book by Morgan Matson ❤❤ (even though the only other book I’ve read by her is Since You’ve Been Gone). This book was really refreshing, it was nice to take a break from all the heavy fantasy I’ve been reading lately. I mean its summer ☀ and this was just the perfect book to pick up because it was such a fun read and the writing was great.
I loved this book mostly because family and friendship were in the forefront of the story – don’t get me wrong this was still a really sweet romance but it was also so much more. At its core this book is about living in the moment, being appreciative of the people in your life and just love (in all the forms it comes in).
I was really shocked that I ended up enjoying the whole book (all 519 pages of it), there is just something about Morgan Matson’s books that make them impossible to put down. I think its her characters, they are just so relatable/likable. I enjoyed the characters and how they all interacted together better than the actual story. Especially Clark; it was really refreshing to for once have a sweet, nerdy love interest. I loved Andie too, she was so relatable. I totally ship those two 💑😍. The supporting characters were awesome too; I just loved how friendship was so important in this book because its usually taken for-granted both in the books I read and real life.
So overall this was such a good read guys, I totally recommend it! It’s funny, sometimes sad but really heart-warming! You just have to pick it up if you haven’t. Happy Reading!
