This book is definitely more chick lit than romance. Honestly at one point I didn't have a clue who she was going to end up with. Cooke had a couple chapters of his point of view but not enough to make it obvious he was the love interest. Luke, Jack and definitely Gage had enough page time to make it possible that her story might wind in their directions. It seemed to me more about a girl with low self image learning confidence and how to live in the real world than it seemed to be a romance to me.
That said I really did enjoy the story. I liked the characters and their friendships and I hope to read more about all of them.
The story is told in Quinn's POV and while I enjoyed hearing her thoughts and the witty inner dialogue she has with herself, sometimes I wanted those inner thoughts to manifest. Kind of goes back to my first point about her lack of confidence. And why no more than one chapter in Cooke's POV? I would've loved to hear more from him.
And with that, more sexy times please! Just when I thought ok this is it, now we're getting somewhere, the story kind of left me hanging. Quinn and Cooke could've been combustible, but it came off as more of a simmer. The buildup took me there while they did all the getting to know you activities, but fell flat in the bedroom department.
With so many extra characters sprinkled throughout, there's no doubt more stories can be told. Not sure I'll be reading them for the other characters or just to check in with Quinn and Cooke. It would be fantastic if they got a short story to tie things up of their own. This story moved way too fast by the end.
Maybe I was too critical of this rom-com, but I still really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend.

Student Quinn Maxwell is surprised when she receives a facetime from a hot brit called Cooke Thompson, looking for his friend Maxwell Quinn. The couple continue face timing and develop a close relationship. When Quinn experiences the
worst day of her life, Cooke flies over to support her and the couple's relationship deepens. With the distance between them, uni and a pro-rugby career to worry about, will Quinn and Cooke's budding relationship survive?
Forgetting the unrealistic storyline, a few things annoyed me about this book, the heroine's poor self-esteem (not that I am belittling esteem or dismorphia issues) and Cooke's pro-rugby career to name a couple. My biggest problem was the author's desire to throw in every single stereotypical British-ism imaginable. I found this grating and it hugely damaged my enjoyment, leaving me with an overwhelming desire to slap Cooke with a "that's not how we talk!". Having said that, if things like that don't bother you, go for it.
I was looking at a different book, saw the cover of this one, read the blurb, and thought that I would give it a try, and I'm so very glad that I did, because it was brilliant.
A really great book, I enjoyed reading it.
