# Just OK, had higher hopes...

By

Just finished this ARC (thanks to #NetGalley) and while it bills itself as a modern re-telling of Austen’s Persuasion (which I haven’t read...YET), I didn’t get many “feels” from this. I didn’t really connect much with either H/h, they didn’t have much on-screen time together, and there were some random sidebars that seemed to be thrown in as “filler”. I never got a real sense of the H/h as a couple. There was more made from another relationship that the heroine became involved in than how she and the hero were together. Yes, there were some "throwback" snippets of their past together, but not enough to give me the clear picture that I needed.
The ending was really sweet but rather rushed and abrupt. I had higher hopes. 3.5/5⭐️
