⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great writing, troublesome heroine

Wanderlove

If you’d asked me when I started reading this book, I would’ve said that there was no way I’d be able to tolerate our heroine for long. But as the story progresses, Emerson grows and matures. She also finds her perfect match in Price; he is what makes this book what it is. Price is absolutely a great guy, and I liked him more and more as we got to know him better.

The story follows Emerson, an 18-year-old in her summer between high school and college. Raised by a single father, she’s never known her mother. When they get into an argument over a guy, she decides to set out on her own on a journey to find her mother. The search leads her to New York City, where she meets Price. A 23-year-old, Price was raised in the country and now finds himself in the city because his wealthy father came into his life after being absent for as long as he can remember. They’re both at a turning point in their lives, and they find comfort in each other. When everything else seems up in the air, the only constant they have is the connection they feel for each other.

I really enjoyed the author’s writing style, and that’s probably what got me to stay past the first part of the book. Emerson is a little bratty, a lot selfish and I didn’t love that she started things up with Price before her ex was entirely out of the picture. The combination left a bad taste in my mouth for sure. That being said, Price is great. He has a few years on Emerson and that experience shows. It’s a mostly light book with some angst, plenty of character development and a touch of heat. If I had liked Emerson more as a person, my enjoyment of the book would’ve vastly increased but the story is solid and the writing itself is great. I received an ARC via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving a review of this New Adult romance.
