I was so pumped to read All the Feels by Olivia Dade after falling in love with the first book in this series, Spoiler Alert. (Read my review here!) While the first in the series is still my favorite, All the Feels was a fun, rewarding read with memorable characters. If you love the grumpy/sunshine trope, this one’s for you.

The summary, from Amazon:
Following Spoiler Alert, Olivia Dade returns with another utterly charming romantic comedy about a devil-may-care actor—who actually cares more than anyone knows—and the no-nonsense woman hired to keep him in line.
“An absolutely witty, swoon worthy behind the scenes romp! Delightful from beginning to end!”–Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin’
Alexander Woodroe has it all. Charm. Sex appeal. Wealth. Fame. A starring role as Cupid on TV’s biggest show, Gods of the Gates. But the showrunners have wrecked his character, he’s dogged by old demons, and his post-show future remains uncertain. When all that reckless emotion explodes into a bar fight, the tabloids and public agree: his star is falling.
Enter Lauren Clegg, the former ER therapist hired to keep him in line. Compared to her previous work, watching over handsome but impulsive Alex shouldn’t be especially difficult. But the more time they spend together, the harder it gets to keep her professional remove and her heart intact, especially when she discovers the reasons behind his recklessness…not to mention his Cupid fanfiction habit.
When another scandal lands Alex in major hot water and costs Lauren her job, she’ll have to choose between protecting him and offering him what he really wants—her. But he’s determined to keep his improbably short, impossibly stubborn, and extremely endearing minder in his life any way he can. And on a road trip up the California coast together, he intends to show her exactly what a falling star will do to catch the woman he loves: anything at all.

All the Feels by Olivia Dade
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
While I didn’t love this one as much as Spoiler Alert, it was still such a fun read with memorable MCs. I highly recommend this series. If grumpy/sunshine is a trope you’re into, you’ll love this book. The fanfiction aspect didn’t work for me as much in this one but it was still fun and cute. I also loved the message about empowerment and advocating for yourself.
