Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West, published 2018

  So, I was checking out P.S. I Like You from the library when next to it I saw this book. Since I’d read Kasie West in the past, I decided to take a chance and check this one out too. I was extremely disappointed in Kasie West. My expectations weren’t even that high to begin with, but this was the worst of her books that I’ve read.

The author instead droned on and on towards the end of the book, tying up all loose ends and removing any motivation to read the next book.      So, I don't think I'll be reading the next book, and I don't think I'll be recommending this book to anyone. I'm disappointed to give this book such a drowsy review, especially because I really like the writing
