Characterization in this novel was on point. I seriously loved everything about the main characters. I liked how this novel wasn't hot and steamy, but rather sweet and steady in the love. I thought that the secondary characters were also quite fun to read about. Maddie's friends were a hoot! I personally liked the balance and restraint the author showed in her writing. It was a smooth pace.
