    Decent

    Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This was a raw, multiracial, cute romantic novel. Magda needs to sell a lot Ty uses to help the community plant a garden. Both have their reasons for wanting the lot but do not account for the instant attraction they feel for each other. I enjoyed the descriptions of the city. i felt the author created a realistic depiction of the city and it's inhabitance. The only thing missing was a deeper connection between the heroes. Yes they argue and understand each ones hardships but the story left me wanting more from them. It felt too serious too fast. Overall, it's well written and entertaining.

    Dumpling Love in NYC!!

    Open House felt like a love letter to New York City in so many ways. Ruby does an excellent job of capturing the feel of New York, what these empty lot gardens feel like and how community springs up in unexpected ways amongst the concrete and glass. Magda and Tyson are two people who meet and are on opposite sides of an issue and their feelings complicate everything. The way Ruby intertwines their lives and the connections made feels very much like my NYC experience and I did wish that I could go to the garden on 136th St and see the characters in this book, but alas I'll just have to find a different lot garden in Harlem 💐🍅🥒🌻 I really enjoyed how through the course of the book both Tyson and Magda wrestled and came to terms with their own baggage without lashing out in unforgivable ways. PSA: There's blackout sex as in sex during a blackout in an unexpected place and it is just as good as you're imagining 😁😁😁😁😁😁 There's lots of food mentioned throughout which I loved because food and seduction go hand in hand for me😍
