Now for the irksome bits:
Irksome moments aside, I’ve definitely read worse. Lovers of sexy mountain men and angsty will they/won’t they romances would probably still like this one, even if it didn’t resonate strongly with me.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
Well, it doesn’t crush the myth, but it’s well-written enough to avoid contributing to the stigma.
