📜Annabelle is a rebel. She likes taking care of people even when it becomes overbearing but her heart is always is the right place. I loved how she stood up for herself against that jerk Carson, even though she felt like punching him.
📄Nick, who is dealing with his trauma post his stroke has given up on world. He lives a grounded life surrounding himself with 3 of his staff members and confined to his house. Having his perspective chapters was really nice.
📜I loved the back & forth notes. These two hotheads don't meet until almost half way through the book, but that doesn't dim their snarky banter. I loved those hilarious notes from Nick especially where he mentions the exact page, para & line number 😆.
Their first meeting was epic leading to a disaster. Nick went from being grumpy to hot in a mini second.
Amidst those desert dates, granting visitors visa to Sir, working on a project together they fell for each other. All those tragic circumstances helped them heal together & also as an individual.
Ps loved those secondary characters to the core.
Pss When Annabelle mentioned Paris is Always a Good Idea, I might or might not have teared up during that as it took me back to Chelsea's story 💙.
The story follows Annabelle, a twice-divorced 28-year-old who has lost her confidence. When one of her exes re-proposes, it's the catalyst to finally make some changes. Annabelle moves across the country for a new job, and her friends set her up with a place to stay. The only problem? Her new landlord, a wealthy and mysterious retiree who frequently leaves stern notes that detail all the ways she is annoying him. Though Annabelle assumes Nick is a cranky senior citizen, he's actually a thirty-something guy who is dealing with his own issues. He's struggling with the changes in his life, and Annabelle is a fascinating distraction. As the two connect, they discover that their broken pieces fit together perfectly.
I've always been a fan of unique meet cutes, and this certainly has one. We meet Nick and Annabelle as individuals, and the notes are the only thing that tie them together for much of the book. Both characters are fully developed, though I think Nick is really the star. His journey is an interesting and impactful one - a man who had let money and power consume his life, until a health scare (a stroke) forced him to re-evaluate everything. There's an emphasis on mental health, as well as plenty of emotional moments and self-reflection... plus some serious chemistry and a touch of steam. I've never read a romance quite like this one, so it kept me hooked from start to finish - even though it's definitely got a laidback, slow feel in a lot of ways. The romance does feel a little rushed, though it's a major part of the story. That would really be my only complaint about this heartfelt romance; I sincerely enjoyed it the whole way through.
I liked the dual POV.
I've seen this billed as a slow burn in some reviews, but I would more characterize it as a slow build-up. To me, a slow burn has touches and glances and tension building until you get to the action. In this book, the characters do not even meet in person until almost halfway through the story. Before that, there are notes exchanged between the tenant and the landlord by being taped onto the doors of their respective homes.
It also felt like a study in amateur psychology to me. Both main characters have issues that are causing problems and driving their actions, but instead of these motivations being nuanced and acting as the driving force behind the scenes, they are repeatedly called out. At one point, the male MC even says, "I was a head case. This was not my finest hour." While his attitude towards his mental health evolves as the book progresses, especially in the last part of the story, I feel like language like that is unnecessary and offensive.
The office villain is over-the-top.
*This is an open door novel.
