Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2024 by Entertainment Weekly · Today.com · Paste · Daily Waffle ·The Nerd Daily and more!

Helen Zhang hasn’t seen Grant Shepard once in the thirteen years since the tragic accident that bound their lives together forever.

Now a bestselling author, Helen pours everything into her career. She’s even scored a coveted spot in the writers’ room of the TV adaptation of her popular young adult novels, and if she can hide her imposter syndrome and overcome her writer’s block, surely the rest of her life will fall into place too. LA is the fresh start she needs. After all, no one knows her there. Except…

Grant has done everything in his power to move on from the past, including building a life across the country. And while the panic attacks have never quite gone away, he’s well liked around town as a screenwriter. He knows he shouldn’t have taken the job on Helen’s show, but it will open doors to developing his own projects that he just can’t pass up.

Grant’s exactly as Helen remembers him—charming, funny, popular, and lovable in ways that she’s never been. And Helen’s exactly as Grant remembers too—brilliant, beautiful, closed off. But working together is messy, and electrifying, and Helen’s parents, who have never forgiven Grant, have no idea he’s in the picture at all.

When secrets come to light, they must reckon with the fact that theirs was never meant to be any kind of love story. And yet… the key to making peace with their past—and themselves—might just lie in holding on to each other in the present.

Thinking Face“I heard a lot of good things about this one, but I just couldn't get into it... I felt like I knew what was going to happen and was missing to urge to open the book to continue reading it. 😕Took me 2 months to finish, which is a lot for me. Not a bad story and it did have some good moments, but overall not thrilled. I did like the last chapters though!”
Descriptive writingRomanticPredictableUnsatisfying plot
“Wow. This book was so unique and the writing was beautiful. Was not all sunshine and rainbows but still left me with the hopeful feeling of a great romance. It seemed a little far fetched to me how the characters so quickly put their baggage and past aside and got together but THE SPICE was great. I was rooting for both characters and thought dual pov was well done.”
