Though plot of this story believable, I didn't like Lily very much as a character and could hardly keep up with her flip-floppy emotions. I liked Sam, but not enough. There were some very hot scenes, but some of the terminology was certainly off-putting to me.
It was a quick read and Elyse Mady gave some great descriptions of the small resort community that provided the setting. Her characters had some depth, but the big build up in the end seemed too little too late for me. It was more than just PWP, but barely.
Maybe I'm spoiled. idk. Most fanfiction lemons are way hotter to me, although there were some against the wall
moments that I enjoyed. Overall, it was okay.
