Pick this up if
You want a cute, funny book which is kind of a slow burn. You like Penny Reid’s humour. You like heroes who are kind of cavemen. You like sub-plots with your romance. You like smart characters in your books. You like stories where one of the main characters tries to change to their lives and break free of everything holding them back.

Don’t pick this up if
You don’t like over the top humour. You do not like weak heroines (keep in mind she is going through an arc. She becomes capable and independent by the end of the book).

This is the third book in the series but it can be read as a stand-alone.
