Thank you to Mina V. Esguerra for providing me a digital review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my review in any way.
Rating: 3.5 stars
Aside from being a fan of friends-to-lovers trope, I’m also a sucker for the-one-that-got-away love stories. I just love being told a good story about lovers who went their separate ways only to find themselves back in each others’ arms again after a few years. So when I read the synopsis of this book I know that I HAVE to read it.
Cal and Ram aren’t quite lovers when they first met each other. Things between them are just beginning when they had to end it. Ten years later, older and perhaps, wiser, they meet each other at an interview,. They talked and created a list (one for each of them) of the things they want to do together before Ram has to go back to America, for good.
Like I said I’m a HUGE fan of the-one-that-got-away love stories so I obviously swooned hard throughout the book. I love their relationship and the mature feels that is included with it. Lately, I’ve been wanting to read New Adult and Adult romance and Kiss and Cry satisfied my cravings!
Cal and Ram are 30 and 32 years old respectively and it really showed their maturity. I love how they really thought of things and important life decisions and didn’t just swooped into the love battle just for the name of love. I rooted for them so much and wished that they could think of ways on howthey can make their relationship work.
I just wish that there were glimpses or little scenes/chapters of their younger selves. I would just like to read about little Cal and Ram spending time together! (Please Ms. Mina write a novella or something hihi!)
Can I also say how I annoyed I am by Cal’s parents and coach?! I’M. JUST. SO!!! I also wished it didn’t take them ten years to reunite but whatever love takes time or something lol.
Have you read Kiss and Cry? What did you think of it? Or are you planning to read it?
