First of all, Keaton is a total cinnamon roll hero, which I love. He’s sweet and (mostly) in-touch with his emotions, and he always treats Roxy with respect, even when she’s kind of horrible to him. He’s also funny and self-deprecating, which I always enjoy in a romance hero. He’s pretty much perfect in every way and I wouldn’t change anything about him.
Roxy was...well, she was a little harder for me to warm up to. She really doesn’t treat Keaton well for a good portion of the book. But the author does give you little glimpses into her character as the book progresses, so I eventually forgave her for being a raging biotch, because it all made sense. I was side-eyeing her pretty hard at some points in the book, though. I may or may not have been angry with her on Keaton’s behalf. (*stern frown-y face*)
I loved seeing my favorite characters from CBtB and TYM, too. Bernadette and Matt are probably (and will probably always be) my favorites, but Aimee and Chase are pretty awesome, too.
It’s also a fairly low-angst read. I have a super low tolerance for angst, and I appreciated that the characters acted like adults (for the most part) for the majority of the book.
And, y’all know I love a good “there’s only one bed” romance, and this one fit the bill nicely.
So, long-story-short, this author has yet to let me down, and for that, she has my gratitude.

Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It’s stigma-free. No rehab needed.
