Super fun book! It featured a soft grunge girl(more bubblegum and unicorns than pain and death) who was really hoe-positive with a man who wasn't as wild as her, but could definitely handle her.
Readers who aren't a fan of savage heroines(heroines who aren't traditionally ladylike) may not connect to Penny, but as someone who's tired of the same old heroine, I'm glad the author took a risk with such a fun female MC. Brodie was a twin(I'm a twin, so it's always noteworthy to me ;p) and adventurous but maybe not as much as Penny. They fit well together, and I loved that in comparison, he was clean cut compared to her.
I think they had issues because Penny was afraid of committing(so much she had a 3 date rule to move on before people got hurt) and whatever problems they had, they created, but they reminded me of real 20 something-year-olds. Plus the love scenes were super hot.
My only complaint is that they lived in NYC and never encountered people of color or much marginalized groups at all. All white, abled, picture perfect people(if you don't count tattoos and piercings). The only mention of a PoC was in passing and not the most flattering situation to mention a PoC in the background.
Overall, this is my first read by this author, and while I'd bought it when it released, the moment it came out on audiobook I devoured it in one sitting! Won't be my last read from this author.
