About this deal

i guess i understand why bailey wanted to do what she did, but i think she definitely could've gone about it better (by, ahem, communicating). From witty repartee to swoon worthy kisses and THAT PERFECT NON-DATE SCENE THAT HAD ME IN FULL ON KICKING GIGGLING MODE, I WAS ENAMORED IMMEDIATELY. from the nickname prince charles gave her to how every character self-sabotaged their own relationships (and then acted like victims), betting on you was a miss for me. Bailey met Charlie a year ago on the long flight to Omaha, where she moved after her parents’ divorce. they did, briefly, but i felt like it was such an important part of the novel that deserved a more in-depth conversation.

when you're in the room, every single cell in my body - every nerve, every muscle, every breath - is lost in you. This is a person, who at worst, was your friend and at best, was someone you were hoping very much for more with, and this is the way they acted. Bailey and Charlie keep close track of the romantic progress of others while Charlie works to deflect the growing feelings he’s developed for Bailey. After a couple of other chance encounters, they end up working together and their hatred moves quickly into friendship territory. this might be very bold of me to say but i might’ve liked it more than bttm *gasp* i cannot pick if i like wes or charlie more, but they’re cousins so the charm must obviously run in the family.

In the beginning I loved the hints but after a while I got annoyed AND THIS IS COMING FROM A SWIFTY! The two main characters had such great chemistry and the way their relationship progressed was very believable. Soon, what Charlie was hoping to avoid becomes a reality as Bailey starts to see him as not only a friend she can rely on in the midst of family drama—but someone who makes her hands shake and heart race. okay so looking back at this i never mentioned the crying in my actual review because i'm NOT joking it was pathetic.

They fake date to piss off Scott, then that just goes nowhere, then they date but don't date at the same time (I can safely say that situationships and romance books should never go together) then they break up despite not dating whilst dating and then some friendship drama happens and BOOM! over the span of three years, they saw each other once or twice until one day they end up working at the same waterpark.it was so out of touch for bailey to just place a bet that her best friend would get with a guy, and not let nekesa know so she could avoid a big conflict with her boyfriend. But including all these random references to literally everything to ever exist in this world is just a big NO for me.
