Explanation of Above: There is some cursing in the book. The book is a romance story with romance elements and a lot of sexual content. While the actual smut doesn’t start until 68% into the book, there are little bits of sexual content and mentionings here and there throughout the book until then. There is racism mentioned and sexism shown. There are two scenes where parental death is detailed, grief is shown occasionally in the book, and one scene where parental abandonment is mentioned. There are two scenes that shown a panic attack and a couple of scenes that have social and academic anxiety shown. Trauma is also mentioned.

Synopsis: Harper is anxiously awaiting placement into a top oral surgery residency program when she crashes (literally) into Dan. Harper would rather endure a Novocaine-free root canal than face any distractions, even one this adorable.

A first-year dental student with a family legacy to contend with, Dan doesn’t have the same passion for pulling teeth that Harper does. Though he finds himself falling for her, he is willing to play by Harper’s rules.

So with the greatest of intentions and the poorest of follow-throughs, the two set out to be “just friends.” But as they get to know each other better, Harper fears that trading fillings for feelings may make her lose control and can’t risk her carefully ordered life coming undone, no matter how drool-worthy Dan is.

Blood, gore, and extra-long roots? No problem. The idea of falling in love? Torture.

Review: I really liked this book! The book took me a little over 2 hours and 30 minutes to get through and I read it all in one sitting because it was just so addicting! I love that the book was a residency romance and that the love interest was a nervous, tongue-twisted man while the main MC was a smart, brainiac girl who had a lot of past trauma she needed to deal with. The book is told in a duel POV narrative for the most part, but a lot of the chapters are from Harper’s POV, and the book is an insta-love romance. The book also had really good moments where it showed feminism and consent. The book had great character development and good worldbuilding. The book had great pacing and the story was well plotted. I really enjoyed reading it and I already want to reread it.

The only issue I had with the book is that there was a bit of confusion with where Harper was towards the end of the book. She mentions moving, but she’s still at the residency school, but then she’s moved. It’s a little bit confusing but doesn’t affect the main story overall.

Verdict: It’s so good! Highly recommend!
