About this deal

after i'd finished licking my wounds, which is a disgusting expression, i decided to get back out there. However, the main reason i didn't give this a higher rating was bc of the stupid third act conflict 🙈🙈 I swear, the unnecessary drama gave me a headache. I did think that their relationship was missing something as I read through the book, which is weird because this author has always delivered on relationships for me in the past. charlie’s a creep and bailey reminds me of one of those kids that says her experience with ‘just dance’ deserves some kind of therapy.

His relationship with Bailey was incredibly sweet and I enjoyed them as friends that slowly transitioned into something more.what i legitimately disliked about bailey was how she valued a relationship with a random guy over her best friend's feelings. Charlie and Bailey meet each other randomly a few times during the course of their early teenage life. After him proclaiming that boys and girls/men and women can’t be friends and her insisting they can, they become friends.

This one featured kids of divorced parents + great anxiety rep in a male character, both of which were really well done. Lots of Gen Z relatable references throughout the story, which had me smurking a little every time I caught one which made reading a little more entertaining. but there's no driving force behind that love; what activities did they do together that made bailey dream of a fifty shades of gray-esque nighttime routine with him? plus these book are so incredibly unrealistic and it annoys me bc shit like this never happens but it’s YA so i need to stop being such a scrooge.their banter was incredibly entertaining and they were such good matches for each other, i was smiling like an idiot while reading this. Charlie insists that members of the opposite sex can’t just be friends, and Bailey is determined to prove him wrong. His eyes burned into mine and he said, "When you're in the room, every single cell in my body—every nerve, every muscle, every breath—is lost in you. I will say that one thing I hate is the miscommunication trope and this book is all about it, which is the only reason I gave it four stars.

Please try again later as the restrictions may be lifted, or contact your service provider if the issue persists. when i'm a hundred years old, i'll still be able to picture you in that black dress with your bare feet and wild little smile. Like, years go by and they bump into each other at their new jobs in the same place and remember all these random quirks about each other? I enjoyed the romance between Charlie and Bailey, their feelings for each other developed over time. they did, briefly, but i felt like it was such an important part of the novel that deserved a more in-depth conversation.these include such strokes of brilliance as "mister annoying" (genuinely spelled like that) or "glasses. I understand I can change my preference through my account settings or unsubscribe directly from any marketing communications at any time. her internal conflict with her parents’ divorce and her mom’s new boyfriend were well done and i liked how everything wrapped up in that regard. She lives in Nebraska with her husband and pack of wild children, and when she isn’t reading or writing, odds are good she’s guzzling energy drinks and watching rom-coms.

the tension was really well done and i liked how the progression of their relationship felt realistic. The book was a bit long for a YA romcom contemporary, and I felt like it could have done without some parts having as much page time. I didn't like the decisions some of the characters made and I didn't like the miscommunication near the end of the book.My kids are the YA demographic, which is probably why Charlie on the plane reminded me of my oldest, blindly stating his opinion as an indisputable fact and existing only to push Bailey’s buttons for no discernible reason. it made no sense to me and just really pissed me off… none of charlie’s excuses for why he was so terrible were good ones and it just made him even more of a jerk in my eyes. The ones who “need to jump wholeheartedly into fictional romances, simply because escaping into the joy of what I didn’t have was somehow comforting and hopeful. Bailey met Charlie a year ago on the long flight to Omaha, where she moved after her parents’ divorce.
