"I’m not deluding myself. I know I’m not glamorous or wealthy or well connected, but those things don’t count for much outside of LA society."
This reminds me exactly of why I am not all that fond of novellas (especially romance novellas). I was unaware that this was a novella when I requested it from Netgalley. Romance novels are so character driven that usually when I read romance novellas I find the characters to be underdeveloped and have trouble connecting to them. Unfortunately that is the experience I found myself in while reading this.
This did start out well and I was very interested in the story and the characters in the beginning. The more the two main characters, Ethan and Sara, interacted and developed a relationship the less interested I became. When I say developed a relationship I don't really mean 'develop' it was more like insta-love (especially Ethan). They would just become overly dramatic at times and it became annoying. I never really felt like I truly got to know Ethan or Sara all that well.
This would have probably made a good novel but without all that extra development that you find in novels this novella fell short for me. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.
