Anyway, this book is pretty dumb. Not just because the hero really isn't in the wrong here, but also because the way that they end up falling for each other is super problematic. Rebecca has this older friend named Hazel who is sort of a parental figure for her since I believe her actual parents are dead. Anyway, Hazel sets Rebecca up with this would-be rapist and then makes a fake emergency call to the restaurant that they're eating at so Saville can come and rescue her. UM. What if he didn't? And what if Mr. Date Rapist already dragged Rebecca off and Saville was too late? I never really got over that, tbh. It was the ultimate fail of meet-cutes and Hazel can go fuck herself. I mean, really.
I still stan McKinney but this romance wasn't it.
1.5 to 2 out of 5 stars
