  • Lovely

    Angie and Ricky are a lovely couple who fit perfectly together. But they both bring baggage to the relationship that gets in the way. It's easy to understand why she doesn't trust him, and how that leads to the miscommunication between them. The ending is beautiful, reaffirming the strong bond between them. The author also did a good job of immersing the reader in the high-stress world of a medical student, and the struggles of trying to please parents who mean well but don't understand. This book should appeal to both romance and women's fiction readers. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fantastic debut

    I took a chance on this book, knowing it was a first effort by a debut author and I’m thoroughly impressed at how well the author absolutely nailed it. She confidently balances Angie’s challenges trying to navigate her demanding third year med school schedule, while juggling her Ghanaian immigrant parents’ expectations, her own personal growth and relationships as she navigates her twenties, and a love life that has never been particularly satisfactory due to her inability to fit into the narrow box that “conventional” society wants to slot her into. This is both a romance and a wonderful new adult coming of age story. Sometimes I wanted to shake Angie, but then I’d remember what it was like to be that age. The world is your oyster, but you haven’t quite figured out how to open it up. You are excited to get on with your career but are filled with self-doubt, not yet truly comfortable in your own skin and trying on different attitudes and personas to see if they fit. On top of all that, Angie is trying to navigate an old friendship that seems to be falling apart and a new romance with a guy who acts like the perfect boyfriend yet gives off confusingly mixed signals over whether he even wants to be in a relationship. It’s a lot, but somehow, In the end, she handles it all with grace. My only niggle was the use of asterisks In the text to give little notes and asides that Angie was thinking. The first few were helpful as they explained medical jargon, but by the end, this device took away from the story’s flow. Still that’s pretty minor.and is more than balanced out by how well the author dealt with such heavy topics as racial bias in medicine, ethnic health disparities, heavy parental expectations, and mental health issues, without ever letting those issues overwhelm her main story. My thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.

  • Entertaining book

    This was a well-written, entertaining book. It was tender, sweet, funny and I wanted to find out what would happen. I enjoyed this book and would read other books by this author.
