I had high hopes for this one considering it was billed as an enemies to lovers romantic comedy in the vein of Sally Thorne but there was a bit too much"enemy" for me to fall in love with this book. I found myself not liking any of the characters in this book nor rooting for their romance. The secondary characters were also just awful and one-dimensional. The one redeeming factor of this book for me was the travel and setting of the Galapagos Island but it wasn't enough to pull up the rest of the story and make this an enjoyable read. Hope you have better luck!
