#LittensLoveRomance Ch.32&33: After an entire book of avoiding what happened in Croatia - the big reveal was underwhelming to say the least. That‘s it? They kissed and almost went further but didn‘t? Sigh. The secrecy and not talking about it for years wasn‘t necessary. They didn‘t even have a big falling out. Now the scene in the airport was more likely to cause a rift. Poppy stuck her foot in it big time. Poor Alex. How will she fix this?

Kshakal What happened in Croatia was a huge let down… 3h
LiseWorks No kidding. Hiw will she fix this? 3h
julieclair I am liking Poppy less and less. That airport scene. I felt so sorry for Alex. 😢 2h

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.30-31: well David kind of lets the proposal to Sarah out of the bag and Poppy kind of starts spiralling. Luckily she and Alex TALK for once and are honest and seem to be okay for the moment. They still have a ton of issues to work out I think, and not much book to do it in. We‘ll see how it goes once they get to the end of their trip.

Kshakal I am not entirely convinced that we aren‘t going to see more of a Poppy spiral… 1d
LiseWorks Oh I'm so tired of Poppy. She complicates everything so much. 24h
vonnie862 Lol, "not much book to do it in." Inhave a feeling things are going to be wrapped up pretty quickly. 21h
julieclair It‘s good that they‘re talking honestly, but Poppy needs to get a grip. 16h

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.28&29: I think by not crawling into bed with Alex in the new hotel room, Poppy is already putting distance btw them. He‘s going to wake up and be hurt I think. As for the Tuscany trip - a lot going on there. Why can‘t Poppy and Alex come to terms with what they mean to each other? Why do they have to make everything so hard? All the important moments happen with them and not with their significant others…that means something

LiseWorks Again, she is failing at this relationship. She should have slept in the same bed. What an opportunity wasted. 2d
vonnie862 That's double date was something. I don't blame Sarah for her feelings and treatment towards Poppy. Sarah is not dumb. She knows there's something going on. But at the same time, she IS dumb for getting with Alex and knowing that there might be something between him and Poppy. 2d

Roary47 How about Sarah and Poppy‘s boyfriend? They seemed to kick it off a little too well. I feel like Poppy is just afraid of losing her amazing friend. I get that, but Alex is perfect for you! 😭 2d

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.26&27: A great step in the right direction-so how‘s Poppy gonna ruin things😬? Alex seems to be all in, but I feel as though Miss Commitment-Phobe is going to rear her ugly head. And ok, since this was their first time, what the heck happened in Croatia that was so big? I was certain they had slept together and she ran away. Maybe they just came close and stopped before anything happened. I hope Alex doesn‘t get too hurt.

vonnie862 Finally!!! But I am with you, how is Poppy going to mess things up? And what happened in Croatia? I need answers!!!! 3d
JessieKB Yes!!!!!! What did happen in Croatia?! I am wondering if we aren‘t going to find out until she does mess things up!!! Now I am the exclamation mark girl out of the book 😂 3d
Roary47 Yes! I caught up just in time to (hopefully) read about Croatia. 🇭🇷 What the heck happened??? I have a feeling someone bailed on the summer trip and they had a verbal falling out. 2d

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.24&25: Ok everyone who is annoyed with Poppy raise their hand. Maybe I wouldn‘t be as irritated if the book was told in sequence instead of all this back and forth. But author‘s choice I guess. Alex is a sweetheart and deserves the best. Not sure if that‘s Poppy🤷‍♀️ - I slightly swooned when he showed up to take care of her when she was sick - and then she put distance btw them again.🙄But maybe not so much in the present

LiseWorks I think she is just terrified to lose him, and she is blind as a bat as he gives her a couple of hints that he wants her. 4d
vonnie862 @LiseWorks i agree with you but at the same time, she's not happy with what she's doing. If she only accepts Alex, I think she can start to feel happy. 4d

Sorry for the late post! My whole house has caught Covid and we‘re struggling atm. #LittensLoveRomance Ch.20-23: So Poppy finally admits she‘s loved Alex for like 5 years - and not just as a friend. She is so afraid to lose him she‘s not willing to put herself out there - until Croatia, maybe. Who knows - we don‘t yet know what happened there (I am irritated about this). In the present she‘s desperate to go back to their previous friendship⬇️

StayCurious She‘s not being fair to Alex - they need to talk, acknowledge what happened, and find a way to move forward or move on if that‘s what‘s needed. 5d
Kshakal I am getting very frustrated with these characters!! Hope you all start to feel better soon!! 5d

julieclair My hold finally came in, so I‘m jumping in for the last third or so of this buddy read. 🤗 I do wonder why they have never had a frank discussion about their feelings, especially since they both love how they can be totally honest with each other about everything else. And I‘m dying to know what happened in Croatia, but I do like the way Emily Henry is building the story year by year. But the big reveal better be good, after all this waiting! 3d
julieclair @StayCurious The whole family with Covid at the same time is awful. I‘m amazed you‘re able to post at all! Hang in there. Sending healing vibes your way. 3d

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.18-19: it‘s hard when life gets in the way of friendship. It definitely is easier to take trips and be more spontaneous when you‘re young and unattached. I think Poppy just thought they would always be close and together and nothing would get in their way. It‘s sad that while Alex is with Sarah, he and Poppy don‘t even text and barely talk. But if I was Sarah I‘d be suspicious as all heck of Poppy.

vonnie862 Yeah, that would not work out. It's ok to have friends of the opposite sex but to always go on trips alone, nope. Their future partners would not be OK with that. 7d
LiseWorks @vonnie862 Oh, I totally agree 6d

#LittensLoveRomance Ch. 16&17 so we‘re getting closer to what happened in Croatia and why Alex is so mad at Poppy. Because I can sense he‘s still angry and I think it‘s because he put himself out there, she felt too much and ran away from the life they could have in their hometown. And now he wants to get back with Sarah to have a chance at that life. What a tragic mess. But stop dancing around the issue! Talk about it please - for all our sakes.

KadaGul @StayCurious It annoyed me as well when they ambiguously hinted at getting together by dancing around the idea. I was fond of the male protagonist, but not so much of the female. 1w
vonnie862 @KadaGul Same! And obviously they did some THINGS because Poppy mentioned what Alex could do with his mouth...Now tell us what happened!!! 1w

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.14-15: honestly, this girl is so in denial about her real feelings for Alex, and has been for years. Julian sounds kinda ick. I wonder how long Poppy was with him. I wonder what her parents thought about her dropping out of school. I mean, school wasn‘t for her and she made something of herself without getting into more debt, so that‘s great. Although her life doesn‘t make her happy. ⬇️

StayCurious I wonder - if they do get together, how on earth will it work since Poppy hates their home town and Alex loves it. 1w
LiseWorks I find the details so not detailed. lol like I want to ask questions, and they are not getting answered 1w
vonnie862 These two chapters were meh. 1w
vonnie862 Also, I wonder when Poppy is going to accept her feelings? Maybe she put a move on Alex back in Croatia, and because he's a gentleman, he pushed her away??? 1w

#LittensLoveRomance Ch. 12-13: I‘m starting to get slightly irritated with the secrecy over Croatia. Just tell the reader so we can start fixing whatever happened. Not sure I‘m a big fan of the back in time every other chapter either. What do you guys think? I like it in the sense that we get to know their close friendship - but I think it‘s a bit overused here. But maybe I‘m wrong.

vonnie862 I'm with you, just tell us what happened!!!! I'm OK so far with the back and forth. I am really enjoying learning more about their characters but gosh...can they just tell us what happened in Croatia?! 1w

#LittensLoveRomance Ch. 10-11: first of all, that beach hippie estate they stayed at in Canada sounds gross — but they were young and adventurous I guess. Still it sounds like it was a great trip to start off their vacation tradition. It sounds like their current trip isn‘t going so great. It‘s so awkward. They‘re going to have to talk about what happened - a) so we can all stop being curious and b)so they can move past it.

BethM I still would not have been ok with it lol. Please add me 2w
vonnie862 Yeah, that hippie camp sounded so gross! I would not have trusted the tent they slept in. And that current place they're at, yikes! As a travel journalist, I would have expected Poppy to have done more research, even if it was on a dime. 2w

#LittensLoveRomance Ch. 8-9: Poppy and Alex definitely have these moments of intimacy that go beyond mere friendship. I‘m not of the opinion that men and women can‘t be friends. They totally can. But Poppy and Alex have always been something more I think. Even though she claims they‘re 95% platonic. sure honey. And what‘s with the freak out over the one bed? Something definitely happened between them. Yup.

LiseWorks I love the way she starts to look at the add for the two beds in the photo when she rented the place 2w

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.6: Is Poppy seeming a bit desperate? Desperate to reconnect with Alex and the last time she felt truly happy? Seems like it. I hope her dream job doesn‘t go up in smoke - although maybe she wants it to. Ch.7: that‘s a great reunion. I still wonder why they didn‘t speak for 2 years - I‘m starting to think they slept together or he confessed his feelings for her. Or something to that effect. ⬇️

StayCurious I hope he‘s not back with Sarah. That will certainly complicate things. 2w
vonnie862 Their reunion was cute. Poppy made it sound that her job got in the way of how they take vacations. This could be part of the reason why they stopped seeing each other, but I too suspect that something more happened between them. 2w

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.4.The way Poppy gets giddy, bubbly & nervous around Alex‘s texts - this screams more than friendship to me. This is like when you like like someone. At least she had the guts to ask him to go away together. That took courage.
Ch.5. This is great conversation and fun to read. I am getting When Harry Met Sally vibes for sure except Alex and Poppy like each other more during this trip. Poppy and Alex are definitely opposites!

vonnie862 I was thinking of When Harry Met Sally too! I also agree that Poppy's giddiness about Alex's text demonstrates more than friendship. The flashback of the car ride showed that Poppy felt comfortable being herself around Alex and Alex began tonipen up. To me, this shows that they are more than just friends. I wonder what stops them? 2w

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.2: speaking from personal experience, I think losing a best friend can be worse than losing a lover. It breaks something inside you that isn‘t easily repaired. I wonder what happened to cause their rift.
Ch.3: wow. That wasn‘t much of a meet cute, now was it? Maybe this will be the type of thing where they keep bumping into each other and they might as well be friends, right?

vonnie862 It was an interesting first meeting. I wondered how they became such best friends.? 2w

#IDLR #InDeathLongReadalong: wow! This was an exciting book - especially those last 5 chapters- what a thrilling conclusion to a very personal case for both Eve and Roarke. I didn‘t pick up on who the accomplice was until right before it was revealed. She was sneaky sneaky! I think despite the difficulties of this case, Eve and Roarke came out stronger than ever, and now Somerset respects Eve. Overall I really liked this addition to our series⬇️

StayCurious @Liseworks and I can‘t wait for the next book but we‘ve decided to take a break in July. We‘ll start Holiday in Death in August, and then we‘ll be reading the 1st novella in the series in September. Hope to see you all there! 4w

#LittensLoveRomance Section 11: It‘s the finale! And Charlie honestly thinks he‘ll never see Dev again - maybe because he‘s been ignoring him and everyone for three months…but Dev‘s there and he apologizes and they work things out and they both get the HEA they both definitely deserve. It‘s a great way to end the story.⬇️

#LittensLoveRomance Sec 10: I feel bad for Dev‘s friends-especially Jules. He not only left Charlie & the Show, he left them too. Yes, he felt he needed a clean break but that was harsh. I‘m so glad they forced him to watch the show. And what a show! Good for Charlie for standing up for himself & for the rest of the crew against Maureen. Now Dev needs to make a grand gesture-Charlie deserves it. And it‘ll also make great tv ironically enough.

#IDLR #InDeathLongReadalong Ch.11-15: Things have escalated-our madman killer was goaded by Eve to come after her.She nearly dies in a car explosion! Eve shows real vulnerability by admitting that she‘s terrified for Roarke since he is the main target. They head to Ireland - to investigate but also to lay Jenny to rest. The trip down memory lane isn‘t easy for Roarke but having Eve there I think helps. They work with an Irish cop while there.

Librarybelle That explosion! I could just feel Roarke‘s emotions as he races to find out if Eve is okay. This is building to an intense conclusion - cannot wait to see how this one ends! 1mo

LiseWorks Boy, this one had me in tears when Roarke held onto Eve to tell her how he felt if he lost her. 1mo

If she finds out she‘s going to try to use it for her show. She seems cold in that way. Or will Dev run away again? My anxiety can‘t take this!

#LittensLoveRomance Section 5: Week Four: Talk about complicated feelings! It‘s never good when the first kiss happens while one or both parties is drunk - because then so many questions crop up. Was it intentional? What did it mean? Does he remember? That‘s a big one. And then when they finally acknowledge the elephant in the room - what can be done about it? Because it‘s against the rules!

#LittensLoveRomance Section 2: Week One: I feel as though this really shows television producers and show runners as mean and manipulative.

Dev will have to step up I think. And Charlie will have to learn to accept his help.

peanutnine Poor Charlie! I hate that Dev listening to him and accepting his boundaries is such a novel thing for him. He deserves respect! 1mo
julieclair I agree, @peanutnine … so sad that being respected is such a novelty for Charlie. I love how Dev is interacting with him. 1mo

#InDeathLongReadalong #IDLR: Ch.6-10 Eve‘s investigation leads to Summerset and she has to do a formal interview. After hitting him pretty hard, Roarke and Summerset give her more information about what happened to Marlena and how Roarke sought justice. They do this off the record. Eve believes Summerset is innocent- mainly because she knows he would never hurt Roarke. But the real killer is trying to frame Summerset as another slap at Roarke. ⬇️

StayCurious Roarke gives Eve the info he has on the men who killed Marlena, the men he killed in vengeance. Eve gives this info to Peabody and Mira, and we really see who she can trust as they agree to keep Roarke‘s secret. Eve believes, despite her badge, that what Roarke did was justified. ⬇️ (edited) 1mo
StayCurious There is another victim - Roarke‘s former lover. It will be difficult for Eve to keep him chained. He wants vengeance for the loss of his friends. Can Eve keep him safe and continue to do her job?

I was on the edge of my seat during these chapters. They were intense. The fight Eve and Roarke had was so emotionally charged. And learning about Roarke‘s past was captivating.

Librarybelle Yes! They were very intense chapters, and you‘re so right about the emotionally charged fight. I love that we continue to see Eve evolve as a person - she‘s flawed, recognizes it, and wants to do right for everyone. I cannot imagine the turmoil she is going through at the moment. I‘m ready to dive into this week‘s chapters! 1mo
TheAromaofBooks While these stories are similar - someone close to Eve is a suspect; she has to follow her duty; they get all hurt and offended; etc. - I appreciate that Robb also keeps it fresh. Here we're getting a lot more details about Roarke's past and watching Eve grow and change, accepting some nuance in her life. 1mo
LiseWorks I really like McNabb. And love She-Body as a nickname. These chapters were intense and I hope Roarke and Summersett listen to Eve. 1mo
ShananigansReads @LiseWorks I agree. McNabb is a great addition to the term but I missed Feeney. 1mo

#LittensLoveRomance Section 1: I already feel a lot for Dev and Charlie - they‘re so real, even though the show they‘re making is most definitely not. I say this with a hint of sadness because I really like to think some of these shows are real haha. I‘m a believer!
So far I‘m hooked and I‘m looking forward to seeing how Dev and Charlie will grow closer. I hate Maureen and Ryan - ugh. They‘re going to cause a lot of trouble I can feel it.

#InDeathLongReadalong #IDLR: A man from Roarke‘s distant Irish past is brutally murdered in what looks like a revenge killing, and Eve is tagged personally to work the case. Privately, Roarke and Somerset allude to dangerous secrets from their past that may have lead to this man‘s death and Roarke warns that he may need to tell Eve everything. I‘m guessing this has to do with the vengeance Roarke sought in return for Somerset‘s daughter‘s death.⬇️

StayCurious Soon, Eve is contacted by the killer again and given the challenge to find his next victim before it‘s too late. This time it‘s someone Roarke was indeed close to, a man who was once a friend. And Eve doesn‘t know how to handle his grief and anger. Then, Eve places Somerset of all people at the scene of the first crime. And she has to bring him in for questioning. This of course places her and the butler even more at odds⬇️ 2mo
StayCurious and Roarke torn in the middle. This killer is playing with them all, and he‘s not finished yet. 2mo

Librarybelle I was surprised by how graphically violent this one is. I wanted to shake Summerset with his evasiveness and the impasse he and Eve seem to have had become a problem. I understand why he does not trust her, but it would have been nice for them to coexist at least cordially by now. 2mo
StayCurious @Librarybelle yes the murder was rough - but I think the book is trying to escalate the series a bit. And it‘s about time for Eve and Summerset to come to a head. 2mo
Librarybelle @StayCurious I can definitely see an escalation. It serves too as another separation between Roberts the romance and suspense romance writer and Robb the futuristic mystery writer. And yes, they were well due to come to a head. 2mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.35-37: Meh. I mean, they finally get their HEA but because I didn‘t really like them as characters I‘m finding it hard to care? Maybe that‘s a bit harsh. I just found myself constantly irritated during this book. But it certainly made for some fun discussions and I enjoyed reading it with you all! ⬇️

StayCurious Do I think I‘ll continue the series? Probably not because, as much as I‘m a bit interested in some of the other stories, there are so many other books out there there is no time for a series I might not be fully invested in. 2mo
TheSpineView I have to agree with you. I just never cared what happened. This is a reread for me. I gave it 4 stars but thought it was 3.5, now I am thinking I should have rounded down instead of up. I don't think I'll read the others in the series either. 2mo

CrowCAH Thanks for leading us @StayCurious ! I won‘t be continuing the series. But like everyone it was kinda on the okay side for me. The first half with Mason‘s death was very emotional. But when it focused on the family dynamic and Josey and Liam it lost the immediacy, felt like the reader was just a viewer and not invested. They did get their HEA, so it‘s a romance. 2mo
OriginalCyn620 Agree 💯, but thanks for being our fearless leader! Even if our book isn‘t a winner, it‘s always fun to see your memes and discussing with the group! 😂 2mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.33-34: I feel like Sam would have made a bigger scene while being fired. It was over too quickly! A fit would‘ve been thrown. But I guess that‘s a good thing. No mo‘ drama. I mean, Nick‘s gone, Sam‘s gone, Josie‘s practically living with Liam…which was so quick but I guess they have waited ten years. Noah isn‘t too broken up about Nick. So alls well that ends well. Oh, there are still 3 chapters? Sigh-We‘ll finish tomorrow.

TheSpineView I agree on the drama with Sam. The lack of has my wondering if this is a different character. 2mo
LiseWorks I couldn't figure out why she showed up half naked. Way to make yourself be what did she call Josie? A Wh..e.? It was rather done quickly. 2mo
CrowCAH I agree Sam gave up rather easily. I‘m not heartbroken over Nick being gone. He removed himself from a situation in which he never should have been in. Noah is taking everything pretty chill. Almost seems like he‘s younger than 10, because I would think a ten year old would be more vocal and questioning than he is. 2mo

#InDeathLongReadalong #IDLR Ch.16-20: Eve gets new leads that take her to Isis‘ lover Chaz and away from Selena Cross. His father was a killer. Better be careful Eve: the sins of the father do not make the man - you should know that better than anyone. But Eve goes after him hard. Soon all evidence is leading her to him, including a deranged killer (someone from Chaz‘ own sect) who names him as her accomplice. ⬇️

StayCurious Eve struggles with going after him - even Peabody calls her out on it and the two fight. Luckily they make up quickly even though Peabody still can‘t see that Chaz could be responsible. Soon though, Eve starts to doubt the evidence. It‘s too neat and tidy and discounts the loving relationship that Isis and Chaz share.
2mo
StayCurious While Eve is staking out Isis‘ shop, she is captured by Selena and her cult. They have plans for her, but luckily are stopped just in time. Surprising no one, they were behind everything.

This book was definitely a spooky one and would have been perfect to read around Halloween. I like the relationships between Eve and her core group. In this book they were sorely tested but they survived and are stronger for it.

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.27-28: ugh. Just when I think I‘m starting to like one of the characters in this book they do something that pisses me off. Like Nick. He was mature and apologized to Liam but then continued to act like an ass. And the whole Africa thing? Without talking to Josie? Please. And I think Liam buying a house on his parents‘ street might be a mistake. They want nothing to do with him or Noah.

Kshakal I have rolled my eyes so many times at these characters!! 2mo
LiseWorks I think Nick just wanted Liam's girl since high school. The letter from Nick when Josie was still with Liam in high school really showed his character. And the Africa thing, how controlling is that? 2mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.25-26: well a confrontation btw Liam and Nick was bound to happen. Liam handled it well actually. And Nick was decent to go and apologize. But man, I really dislike Josie. I mean in general, but especially when she gets all cozy with Nick and then has the gall to accuse Katelyn of looking too cozy with Liam. I mean dear lord! I guess we can say these characters are “real” and “flawed”. Geez, they certainly are.

LiseWorks Oh, I wasn't happy with her either. She needs to make a decision, not string both along. 2mo
OriginalCyn620 Josie was way over the line about Katelyn and Liam! I agree, Renee, I didn‘t like Josie at all. There was a point where I wanted to scream at Josie to just make a choice-either Liam, Nick, or neither of them! Her back and forth was tiring. 2mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.23-24: ugh. There‘s a feeling in the pit of my stomach. Will Liam and Josie cross the line? I don‘t like cheating and I don‘t like books with cheating. I never look too far into the books we read as a group because I don‘t want too many spoilers. I read alongside you all. And sometimes I pay for that🙄 I hope they stick to the sidelines - at least until she figures out what she‘s doing with Nick.

LiseWorks I'm pretty sure Liam told her it was up to her. Although he sure pushed the limits with her. I think she needs to tell Nick what she wants. I don't like cheaters either. 2mo
Roary47 I also don‘t like cheaters. They definitely are dancing on a line. 2mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch. 19-20: I wonder if they should‘ve told Noah with Nick there. I mean isn‘t he the third parent and shouldn‘t he get a say? I‘m not sure. It‘s an iffy situation all around. I do know that Liam kissing Josie and telling Noah he loves her is going to confuse everyone. And Josie wanting to roll her eyes when Nick says “our son” really says it all. I don‘t think she really loves Nick. I think he‘s been a placeholder.

Kshakal There is no way she truly loves Nick… I see major messiness in our future! 2mo
OriginalCyn620 Yep, a sticky situation for sure! I think Josie loved Nick (not in the same way she did Liam) but as soon as Liam came back, she knew somewhere deep down that it was over with Nick. But also, Nick was being a douchecanoe! And really, so was Liam. 2mo
See All 7 Comments
LiseWorks There is a lot of jealousy from Nick. It seems that Mason didn't like Nick in high school. It was a touching scene when they told Noah that Liam was his dad. Deep down, she loves Liam still, and she has to accept and let Nick go. There are some little hints that Nick does things that irritated Jose before Liam was on the scene. And sometimes women stay with the man because it's easier. I believe this is the case with Josie here. 2mo
CrowCAH I agree with @OriginalCyn620 she never really like liked Nick, second best. And @LiseWorks said it well! 2mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.17-18: k, I don‘t like Nick but I‘m also not a fan of Liam being so blatantly flirtatious with Josie. That will just confuse her more than she already is, and will certainly confuse Noah. I‘m glad they‘re going to tell Noah - I do think it‘s the right thing to do. But I think Liam needs to take a step back from Josie - she‘s not free to do what she wants. I mean she‘s engaged to someone else and that should mean something.

OriginalCyn620 I don‘t like Nick but I‘m not really liking Liam either. I feel like I‘m supposed to, but I don‘t! And it is disrespectful for him to flirt with Josie since he knows she‘s spoken for. I think he‘s doing it because he didn‘t like the way he broke things off with Josie and also just because he doesn‘t like Nick. It‘s like he‘s pissy because Josie moved on! 2mo
CrowCAH Liam is coming on strong. But Josie is kinda not sticking up for herself either. She‘s going where the wind blows and not setting up boundaries with Liam. Or being faithful to Nick. Liam has always been in the back of her mind. 2mo
LiseWorks To me, Josie is setting herself up with Liam. Yes, they should tell Noah, but why the bike ride? If she loves Nick, then don't flirt with any guy. She is asking for trouble. 2mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.15-16: quite a bit to unpack in these chapters. First, if Josie wants to stay back from Liam, listening to his entire music catalogue probably wasn‘t the best decision. Second, I know we don‘t like Nick, but Josie is still being unfair to him. And I think she has been for a while but she didn‘t want to be alone so she keeps him around.⬇️

StayCurious At least she finally acknowledged that Liam should get the right to see Noah if that‘s what he wants. Boy, will that go down well with Nick. 2mo
LiseWorks I'm on team Liam. I don't know why he did it. But it seems like he said he tried to talk to her and she made it sound like It's OK, you can talk to coach and he'll take you back. He walked away. I really don't blame him. And he didn't know about Noah. 2mo

OriginalCyn620 Again, no communication! Liam started the conversation “that night” but he didn‘t get far at all. And yes, Josie cut in with the comment about the coach, but Liam immediately walking away was him being cowardly. How was Josie supposed to know what he was feeling. She may have her faults but she‘s not a mind reader! 2mo
julieclair I am warming a bit to Liam. He sincerely seems to regret the way he handled things 10 years ago. And I think Josie downloaded all his songs because she‘s deep down wanting to be with him again, but she hasn‘t admitted it to herself yet. 2mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.13-14: Okay. Fresh day. Fresh outlook. I will read these chapters without getting annoyed at these characters….ugh. Never mind. Liam left because he felt like he couldn‘t follow his dreams? How were Josie and his friends holding him back? Because they had certain expectations for him? I think a lot would have helped if he‘d just talked to them about what he was feeling. ⬇️

StayCurious And Josie getting so mad at Noah for talking to Liam - yeah, that‘s only going to make him more angry when he discovers the truth. I‘m not feeling romantic heartsey vibes from this book but I‘m still interested in how things will play out. Should I be? 2mo
