Highly Suspicious & Unfairly Cute Book Review!

Overall Rating: ✰✰✰✰.75

If you follow my Instagram & Pinterest, you know that lately, I have not been able to stop

talking about how I love this book! So, I thought it was about time to do a proper book review. If you’ve never heard of this before, it is a YA romance with some lovely tropes such as friends-to-enemies-to-lovers, rivals-to-lovers, and some forced proximity! This follows ex-best friends who both end up at the same survival boot camp and keep bumping into each other which in turn forms a perfect opportunity to figure out what actually happened between them…and maybe discover a new future for themselves.

I have been a long-time lover of YA, it is no secret that I adore the genre. But unfortunately, the YA genre is full of books that just don’t do the genre justice. This book however is a major exception. This book was such a wonderful representation of what the YA genre has to offer! Celine & Brad were also really realistic teenagers, which I appreciated because sometimes it feels like authors try to treat their teen characters like mini adults…which they're not.

The characters were absolutely magnetic, and I fell in love with all of them! The main characters in particular, Celine & Brad, I found myself actually relating quite a bit and I really appreciated the OCD representation in Brad, because I don’t see that often in other books. Also, I'm obsessed with any variation of the friends-to-lovers trope, so I absolutely adored their romance, and the undeniable chemistry between them from the beginning, something only a fantastic author can do! Their banter was also next level, I was laughing my butt off every single page.

The ending was the ONLY thing that made me tick off a .25 from the rating. If you’ve read any of my reviews before, you know how I need a good ending for the story to feel complete. Sadly, the ending felt a little rushed...I flipped the last page and it was like what? It's over? This is probably the one and only time I was hoping for an epilogue. Or something!

All things considered though, this was a fantastic book! I absolutely loved it, and it is bound to be one of my new favorites. I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves the YA genre, friends-to-lovers, rivals-to-lovers, and forced proximity!

Thank you so much for reading and I'll see you in the next post!
