    "I really liked this book. Was just the level of 'smart' I'd expect from the characters, unlike a lot of other books where people are just very obnoxious and/or unrealistic. Funny dialog, cool characters, enjoyable quick read."

    "I liked it for the most part, but part of why I read fiction is to escape reality, and this was a little too much taking forever to get to the point. Something like reality, which I'd rather not read about. But it was fairly satisfying, and would have been better if had moved a bit faster."

    "A fun tale of adventure that is a bit too predictable and treads some well worn paths. Still, the world building is intriguing and the story is entertaining, overall. The characters are well written, which elevates this novel and helps make it worthwhile. "

    "It is not often in a romance novel that the lead love interest ends up being a nerdy relatable character. That is what sets this book apart from others in the genre and exactly what I was looking for. The story was not very deep but it was fun and easy to read and enjoy. It was a great way to kill some time over the weekend for me."
