This was a great book. Josh and Bri are polar opposites yet they work so well.
Josh gets put on academic probation, and Bri is the tutor/counselor assigned to him. They immediately get on each others nerves. This is actually quite funny because Josh is deliberately pushing Bri’s buttons and he’s a smart ass character, but in a good way.
Of course, one thing leads to another and they begin to get to know each other. We learn a bit about both of their pasts and current relationships which helps explain each of their characters. Josh is totally laid back and Bri is extremely uptight and plays everything safe.
For me, Josh was the star of this book. His character was easier to connect to, and I enjoyed his chapters more. That said though, Bri’s chapters were great too, I just liked Josh more overall.
Their friends were great background characters and I enjoyed the parts of the novel where they were out in a group as well as when it was just Josh and Bri.
They both have a lot to learn about each other and life, and its great to see them trying to work things out together even though they’re such opposites.
This was a fun and quick read and I definitely recommend it. I’m keen to read more of the series.
