This book opens with a bang! A very cute bang! Tansy and Gemma are so adorable! I love Tansy and how she deals with life, I feel like starting off with her was a really great way to make the book more relatable.
This book was a super cute witchy romance! It had fake dating (such a fun trope!), demons, witches and hilarity. There was quite a bit of comedy in this book; but I didn’t think it was overdone. I felt that it was about the right amount.
I was expecting a pretty lighthearted book based on the cover and synopsis as well as the comp titles. What I got was something different than that. This book tackles issues (such as alcoholism, fatphobia, and death) in the overarching plot of the story. This book is a fake dating book – but they also do have an age gap, if that makes anyone uncomfortable.
There was nothing actively wrong with this book. I enjoyed it, and I definitely got a few laughs out of it, but it didn’t grab me by the throat and make me scream I LOVE THIS BOOK. I love the hilarity of all the accidents and the bad luck Liv had; but at a certain point it just started to fall flat to me, because just how much bad luck could she have?
First off; I still love RW&RB more than anything McQuiston’s written since. Saying that, as their first foray into YA, this book read way more to the adult end. There isn’t anything in here resembling adult content, but it has the feel of an adult book written about teenagers and there is nothing wrong with that.
