To me this was a very perfect second chance romance and what I loved the most was seeing the build and then the fall of Max and Bella’s relationship and then the coming together again. I love the back and forth between past and present because you see the fall but the build at the same time. While building it back wasn’t easy, you could tell from the first time they saw each other, it was necessary.
I also really loved seeing them fall apart from both Max and Bella’s POV. You could see why it wasn’t easy for both of them and the reasons behind it. Was it a lot of lack of communication, yes. But what happened with Max would have torn down many. And even though Bella tried her hardest to be there for Max and to find out what was bothering him, Max didn’t want her to know.
