What I loved best about this book was the slow burn romance.  There were not instant sparks between Meredeth and Cam, more irritation than hate or love.  Sometimes annoyance is harder to overcome than being enemies (there is a reason enemies to lovers is a thing!), so that makes this story even more refreshing.  Once the spark is there though, the story really takes off.  Another thing I loved about this book is the character development.  Both Meredeth and Cam are going through huge life changes, and while those are central to the characters, it isn't necessarily central to their story.   It is easy to see how in real life these two crazy kids will make it because their relationship is built on more than grief and sadness.  I recommend this book to anyone who loves a great story with well-written characters.
