Hey, pretty readers! *Waves excitedly* I am back with a review on this latest newly released YA college romance book called "The Partnership" by "Charlotte Penn Clark". This book is being gossiped about a lot and is also gaining some audience, so I decided to read and review it for my fellow readers and help them pick up their next read!!
"The Partnership" introduces us to "Kyle" and "Lani". Kyle is everything a young college hottie is with all that bad boy aura and 'stay away from me I'm not good for you' vibe. On the other hand, "Lani" is our good girl but not so good. She likes to stay in the shadow, never takes credits for her work and always choose wrong friends.
Kyle and Lani both end up in a pilot class called extra credits. They both are instantly attracted to each other but ignore it. And then they end up being partners and help each other overcome their weaknesses. Lani helps Kyle to write his paper and Kyle helps Lani with her confidence. Their interaction was interesting and fun. They were really easy around each except all that sexual tension. Their relationship bloomed with time from being friends to being friends with benefits or rather partners with benefits and then finally they accepted their feelings and became a couple.
"It's not about you but it's all about you. It's just so fucking complicated"
TBH, I loved Kyle and the plot but I had some problems with Lani's character. I was just unable to connect with her. Kyle sort of sacrificed his dream to live with Lani but Lani did nothing. She was kind of selfish like that.
The plot is quite simple but entertaining. The story is a perfect blend of humor, sweetness and hotness. I have no complaints about author's writing style. It was perfectly written. Nevertheless, it was a fair read, an enjoyable one. If you are a fan of quick, fun college romance, I totally recommend this book to you!!
