I didn’t really care for this story. I felt it dragged in the beginning and I almost gave up on it but had to do a review so hoped the story would get better for me. I read a third of the story and basically it was just like a book I had read and reviewed two days ago. With the pretend relationship and ex showing up with new love only this book just didn’t hold my attention. So i tried but so unrealistic meeting on a  random island at the same time. As I said it just didn’t hold my interest.
