I enjoyed this friends to lover story. There were times in the beginning that I didn't know if I wanted to slap Simon upside the head or give him a hug because I felt sorry for him. There was definitely a back story with him that I think if the author had revealed more, would make you understand him more. We never really got to find out the whole story with Jon. What I liked about the story was that even being friends for so long and Owen having a crush on him, that Owen didn't instantly forgive him. That he stood his ground and said everything that he had held back from saying for three years and allowing Simon to realize what he really had done to Owen and their friendship. It was really nice having them slowly reconnect and have their friendship develop into so much more.
