    I have literally never disliked anything by Alyssa Cole and this continues the trend The representation her is amazing Black woman, Vietnamese American man, both neurodiverse and she in a wheelchair Alyssa does a fabulous job of challenging stereotypes against disabled and neurodiverse people, all while creating this incredible, sexy, amazing love story I don t know how she does it but I hope she never stops.

This is a sweet story that includes the fun of game play and puzzles and a sizzling romance Delightfully, as the cover shows, it is another interracial romance Although it could do well as a standalone, why not gobble up the entire series Many thanks to Avon Impulse and Edelweiss for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion
