This is classic Alexandra Hawkins. Amazing characters - ones you loved and ones you wanted to slap. I loved the "I am just pretending that I hate you because I truly love you" trope. Poor Thorn can't tell Olivia he loves her because he was pretending to be Gideon when Olivia needed advice.
Once I started the book, I could not put it down. I enjoyed the characters and plot.
