When I read the description for this book I was definitely interested by the representation of body positivity and racially. I loved the character of Cassie and felt like she was strong (even if she didn’t always stand up for herself the way I wanted). I was less impressed with her love interest Reid which did make the story drag for me a bit. Sometimes I think romance books are a bit like horror stories when you get the scene and the character is making the dumbest choice and you want to scream at them to make a better choice and I definitely had that moment in this book. Reid and Cassie are both photographers and Cassie’s best friend has a new lingerie line coming out and wants Cassie to be the art director for the campaign but the company producing the line wants to use the guy they always use and trust Reid. All of this leads to my wanting to scream at the characters moment when Reid agrees to work with Cassie and take extra money to babysit her and report any problems with the overall vision to the company.
