I couldn’t put it down! There are so few books structured this way that it really makes this one stand out. I read somewhere that Kasie West structured it that way after the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral, but because it has all her signature contemporary charm and flirty dialogue, it feels refreshingly new. I love her banter and I know whenever I pick up one of her…
