Abby has been working to become an artist her whole life. SHe frequently draws and is volunteering at a gallery for some better chances at getting into her dream art school. Although she is considered to have talent, Abby has been criticized of having no heart in her art. Although adamant and in denial at first, Abby then creates a list of things that will help her gain more heart, and one of them is to fall in love. This was definitely a disappointment for me being a fan of Kasie West and reading some other tremendous novels. It didn’t fully engage me and the romance was mediocre. Cooper wasn’t very likable and their romance felt out of place and forced. I liked the idea about the protagonist focused on being an artist but was missing the emotion in her art and then makes a list of things to help. However, although I really liked the idea, it wasn’t executed in the best possible way. There was definitely lots of character development for Abby, but I feel that this author is capable of doing much better in terms of engaging the readers and creating more swoon-worthy romance.
