Coffee Date

Coffee Date - K. Lynn This story is completely underdeveloped. I've seen authors do a lot in very few pages, but this just isn't one of them. The relationship of Alice and Hank happens almost entirely off page. It's basicelly ""over time, they went on dates and fell in love"". I feel some sort of TV narrator in a fairy tale happening as I type that. And it's true. That's how the relationship was written, and then BAM, they're in love. Except...she's got a Big Secret.

The reveal was traumatic, no doubt. I felt for Alice and wanted to kick Hank in the shins. The resolution, though, felt forced into a tiny box. It wasn't at all realistic, and he absolutely didn't grovel. He didn't even FIND her. It was all accidental and lazy.

Overall, I was underwhelmed by every part of this.

I received an ARC of this via Netgalley.
