I loved this book. Friends to lovers is one of my favourite tropes.
Chelsea has been dating the wrong kind of man, and her best friend suggests dating her nice guy flat mate to see where she’s going wrong. Tom has has a crush on Chelsea for years, but his past history has made him have serious trust issues.
Together they embark on a week of ‘dating’, where both find themselves facing personal issues they’ve been putting off.
I loved how the dates didn’t alway go to plan, but the two of them took it in their stride and made the best out of everything. For the most part, they were brutally honest with each other and it was so sweet to hear the things Tom says to Chelsea. She finally realises that she has been dating, but never had a relationship, never found someone she wanted to chat to outside of a date and it was a real eye-opener for her. Tom needed to face his past before being able to move on, he just needed a little push in the right direction.
I loved how Nadia got involved towards the end, she was brash but her heart is in the right place, and the text messages at the end were brilliant.
A really great story, a bit of emotion, a few ‘I can’t believe that’ moments but the ending was perfect for Tom and Chelsea.
