RATING: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

When was the last time you read a romance that made you swoon so hard you legitrally dropped your Kindle because every muscle in your body went weak? For me, it was last night.

☑️Was I up till four in the morning devouring this masterpiece? Yes.

☑️Am I prepared to spend a half-dazed blurry-eyed Monday day-dreaming at work today? Also yes.

☑️Do I regret it? Not. For. A. Single. Second.

Because…

HOLY GOD THIS BOOK! 🥵🥵🥵

Grumpy-meets-sunshine, forced-proximity, friends-to-lovers, this little gem had me laughing, hooting, crying and sighing at 12 PERCENT. The drop-your-kindle-swoon moment happened at around 25% and would have occurred sooner had I not taken breaks to hydrate myself in protection against that devastatingly effective slow burn. 🔥And even with the beloved company of my iced bottle of water, there were still many hip-hand-and-brain-shaking instances way before my ereader slipped from my hands.

This is largely going to be spoiler free review so I will just use the writer’s own words to describe the plot:

“What would a successful, ball-breaking, big-hearted nurse want with a selectively mute, abrasive, socially inept sculptor?”

The answer, lovelies, is EVERYTHING. 🥰 Axel and Zenobia own my soul. He’s a Viking-sized, tattooed reclusive British metal artist afraid to use words. She’s a curvaceous warrior-spined American nurse with old hidden wounds. At surface, it’s a classic case of opposites-attract. But the more time they spend together, the more they realize just how similar and connected they are.

This story pulses with a soulful intensity that had me breathless. As silent as Axel was during most of it, his one-liners left me spinning. 🤤 And God, did I tear up during Zenobia’s monologues. 🥺

This interracial romance has now a permanent place in my reread pile.
GO READ!
