My review: 

Ingredients for a cute book: 

🍓fake boyfriends
🍓coming out 
🍓friends to lovers 

Patrick was like reading about myself sometimes, and I enjoyed it more than I should LOL. The kitchen scenes were so real, it was exactly like I was there with Patrick and saw everything he did. 

Both Patrick and Connor were lovely characters and I loved that fake boyfriend situation they found themself in. Best friends to lovers with fake boyfriend theme are ALWAYS good, and this story was really amazing.

Loved that they were so in love with each other while totally blind to the other's feelings. Connor was afraid of loving his friend because he didn't know that Patrick is gay, and Patrick was afraid of loving Connor because he wasn't out and thought really low about himself. I loved the way they changed and finally got together. 

The romance was really sweet and I enjoyed reading this book. I hope we got to see more from this universe - Josh and Aaron with an enemies to lovers, please! I want a kitchen sex scene between those two.
