I Kind of Loved It!
If you’re looking for a fast-paced friends to lovers romance, then Over Us, Over You by Whitney G. is the perfect book for you!
This story is told in three different parts and in alternate points of view. We meet Hayley as she’s being evicted from her coffee shop and from her apartment and has no other options but to call her brother and ask for help. Back in San Fransisco she’s trying to get back on her feet and stay away from Corey, her brothers best friend and her old friend as well. One drunken night changes everything for these two, and now Johnathan, Haley’s brother is now asking Corey for a favor and for Hayley to live with him for a few weeks.
Corey and Hayley have a history, and as the book goes on we get to see the past and how close the two of them used to be, and why Hayley stopped talking to him all those years ago. We also get to see these two go from heavy sexual tension and Corey putting so many rules in place to stay away from her, to an amazing, yet rocky relationship. I truly adored watching these two work through things and how Hayley seemed to break Corey down little by little in the beginning of the book. He tried as hard as he could to stay away, but no matter how hard he tried, every little thing she did drove him closer to insanity and to wanting her more and more.
The biggest thing stopping these two from being truly happy is Hayley’s brother, and Corey’s best friend Johnathan. I hated that he was such a factor in their relationship, but I also loved how protective he was over Hayley. Since him and Hayley had such a horrible childhood he felt responsible for her and truly took over for caring for her and making sure she was safe, and was at times overbearing when it came to her, but he was always looking out for her, and at times he may have been a little too over protective and got in the way of true happiness.
I really did enjoy this book, the banter between the characters, the sneakiness, and just the overall plot of the book. I just wish that this book would have been a bit longer and some parts could have been expanded on a bit more, I felt some parts were a bit rushed, and that’s why I can’t give it the full five stars. I did finish this book in one sitting, it was just that good and it did grab me from beginning to end. If you are looking for a rom-com that will have you hooked from beginning to end, you need to pick up Over Us, Over You by Whitney G. today!
