I liked the book, not love, but like. It is well written, obviously very well thought of and developed in a manner quite faithful to reality and to the mindset of the people in that time, so world background is 5⭐ for me. As for the characters, I honestly like Ren and Rin, they well written and well represented and their relationship evolved smoothly in my opinion, all thanks to Ren's trust in her, and he made real effort to get her to love and trust him he was active both physically and mentally and emotionally!!! Now what made this book a 3 star not a 4 or more is how ordinary it felt, it wasn't suspenseful, and the conflicts were not as gripping. Now this is my personal point of view and it should not deter you (you who is reading this review) from reading it. It is steamy and fluffy and a smooth sailing story so pick it up and it will become a nice part of your day.
