    Only Ever You generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review 4 We were different people StarsI really this enjoyed this light romance from C.D Reiss for whom I know typically does darker stories of love This one was fun It encompasses several tropes of the genre and does so in a uniquely engaging way through the toggling back and forth between the cynicism of the heroine and the effervescence of the hero Only Ever You is part friends to lovers, part time hop, part fake marriage, part teenage marriage pact, part meddling families There are several themes throughout the book that touch on the heavy making it real and poignant but the lightness of this story makes it enjoyable, fast paced, and charming Sebastian Barton and Rachel Rendell were quick friends when the Rendells moved in across the street as teenagers Rachel protected the sensitive, unassuming Sebastian and was his only friend He held a torch for her throughout their friendship unbeknownst to Rachel The two lost touch after college and plans that were made, as they often do, went awry and their lives were completely different then how they envisioned them going Fast forward to years later and their thrust back into each others path remembering the aforementioned marriage pact and how it could benefit their lives now C.D Reiss utilizes her signature style of writing in Only Ever You Her flow of story telling grabs your att...

    I loved Reiss s Songs of Submission series And I mean I L O V E D it It s been a while since I read it but I remember being completely engrossed in the story, the writing, the characters.Which is why I m pretty baffled right now And I m finding it hard to believe that this book was supposed to be written by the same author.It felt incredibly unpolished, the writing was disjointed and strangely paced, the dialogues were confusing just like many other reviewers, I often didn t even know who was speaking.And while there really wasn t anything wrong with the characters in another book, I might ve even enjoyed them , they didn t manage to make up for the rather lackluster plot or the above mentioned writing flaws I just didn t care that much about them or their love story.I was ecstatic when I got the approval for this ARC I m a huge s...
