I received an ARC of this book from the author via Give Me Books and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Elizabeth Dyer!
OUUU I liked this book. I liked this book a lot. At first, I was afraid I wouldn't like the tone of the book, since I'm kind of particular about my sci-fi-y books, especially romance. I'm gonna say this is sci-fi in a way, because of the tech although I'm sure something like this exists, I just don't know about it.
I thought that perhaps the romance would have felt forced in this book, but it really wasn't. It flowed well with the story and wasn't front and center - which is refreshing. I'm so happy it was about a nerd and an effing badass female main character. Both mentally strong in both different and same ways. They have a great dynamic which makes reading about them fun.
I also really like how the author brought the main character's past into the present, and how she made it work without it being cliché. I'm actually super happy she didn't fall into any clichés.
Overall, I was pleased with this book, and cannot wait to read the rest of the series when it comes out!
