    "Vision in White is a decent novel with childhood enemies that turned into lovers. The book is pretty relatable, however sometimes it felt a little forced and slow."

    "I feel like "friends turned to lovers" is a pretty common trope in most books and movies. Is this solution the best? I can't say since I haven't read all of them, but I highly doubt it."

    "I absolutely loved it and devoured it in less than a day! I think it’s safe to say that J. Daniels has a new stalker ☺ Ben and Mia had me at hello… I loved the way their relationship started on such shaky ground, but turned out to be everything they ever wanted. I am a sucker for haters to lovers so their dynamic and Ben’s dirty mouth kept me in the moment for pretty much the better part of my weekend lol…"

    "A book of the ages, honestly. Something to read if you really like to see things work out, without working out. A complex story of love, and loss. Would suggest if you enjoy romance without all of the regular tropes."

    "Nice build up anticipation. Deep character development. Very slow burn romance. A real page turner. Childhood friends, fall in love, not enemies."
