This was a quick and easy read, and a sexy romance, but it didn’t give me all the feels. I thought their first meet was actually kind of cute and sweet. I liked how Max was so considerate to Grady when Grady wasn’t at his best, and I liked how Grady really noticed Max and appreciated his kindness. They fell in lust and love really quickly. They were attracted not only to their looks but all their personalities, but they didn’t talk a lot about their personal histories. I felt that their backstories were glossed over, including Grady’s drinking problem. He got drunk once in the book, at the very start, and by the end, he was an alcoholic? I didn’t see it, and I didn’t feel it. Their journey felt too easy and too quick. Grady’s turnabout in the end also felt a bit rushed. I enjoy fake engagement romances, but this one didn’t quite win me over. I also couldn’t follow their break-up fight. The dialogue was so confusing I honestly didn’t understand why they were fighting.
