    Listen, I am not a fan of these open ended HFNs no matter how sweet they are they re still incredibly open ended This book was just OKAY for me, so this rating is NOT a negative one again, this was just OKAY I can t go out of my way to say I LIKED it JUST when things get started JUST when these two establish their relationship and how they officially FEEL about each other JUST when they essentially get together and set the general intent like moving in together , the book ENDS SO Listen, I am not a fan of these open ended HFNs no matter how sweet they are they re still incredibly open ended This book was just OKAY for me, so this rating is NOT a negative one again, this was just OKAY I c...
