Rose Maraczek (21) loves movies. Not just any movies, but sweeping period dramas that take her far away from who she is. Her obsession started in high school when a box of movies appeared on her doorstep and she discovered the relief they could give her from her debilitating OCD. What Rose hates are spoilers—especially those that ruin the escape she seeks.

Tristan Moore, Rose’s former crush and her brother’s best friend, is the bane of her existence. Always at their house, everything he does gets under Rose’s skin, the worst of which is his consistent dropping of movie spoilers. Fed up, Rose sets out to find a new apartment, but it’s while trying to distance herself from Tristan that he reveals one final spoiler—one that makes Rose realize it was Tristan who left all those movies for her years ago.

Now it’s Rose’s turn for revenge as she forms a movie-spoiler plan of her own: Destroy Tristan Moore."

This was a delightfully unexpected and cute spicy pepper of a book.

I came across the authors Instagram post calling for ARC readers, responded, and they graciously sent me a copy, but I also wanted to send my feedback via NetGalley!

For me - and I'm sure for many who will read this - Rose is an incredibly relatable protagonist. Like Rose, I have been my own worst enemy and gotten in the way of good things. The crippling anxiety, the intrusive thoughts, the self doubt and self deprecation...hi, it's me! It's been awhile since I've read a book and have been able to clearly see parts of myself in a character. While sometimes her assumptions and actions are frustrating, it's easy to see how she would assume the things she does in this story. My real frustration throughout was with Tristan. I was practically screaming "SPILL IT!" when the time came for him to say how he feels. Man, I wish Robby would have played telephone operator between these two in the beginning but where's the fun in that?! ;)

This slow burn, friends-to-enemies-to-lovers, revenge fueled, early '00s based book snagged me in my feels and didn't let me go until it was finished with me. I loved it. Particularly that ending...even I missed that potential spoiler! 4.5/5 Stars

Quirky! Fun! Tension Building Romance!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ / ⭐️.5
This book has everything you want in a romance with some small town vibes and a little bit of spice! As someone who has suffered with OCD and anxiety my whole life, I really resonated with Rose as she goes through her journey and tries to navigate a confusing, yet tension building, romance. I don’t want to share too many details in this review because I want every reader to be able to experience the fun nuances and movie references without a Spoiler! 🤫 But I’ll just say there were more than a few times I wanted to yell at my kindle! And then chapter 19! 🤭

I am a fan and I will be first in line for when she writes her next one! 🥰🤩

If Rose and Tristan do not stun a reader, then LE Todd's beautiful prose will. This book was such a treat to read. Every page I wanted to learn more about Rose's OCD and past history with Tristan. Very rarely do we ever see a Native American main character/love interest, and when we do typically it is in a very objectifying or stereotypical way. LE Todd wrote her Indigenous (Monacan) hero how we need to be seen, as fully formed characters in the contemporary context. She wrote with care and nuance and as Native reader I appreciated it so much. This book is spicy with witty banter that KILLS. This book is a new favorite.
