28 Dates was a middle of the road read for me. That said, it did have its moments. For me, it's not so much a friends-to-lovers or friends with benefits romance as a don't know what you've got till it's gone story. At least where Caitlin is concerned. The question is whether or not she's waited too long and let that chance slip through her fingers. That would've been okay, and it could've made for an interesting romance except it turns into a lot of nobody telling anyone how they really feel, which then dragged on for most of the book. More often that not, I wanted to shake one or both of these characters, and when I couldn't, I just grew more frustrated with them. What I did like was a few of Caitlin's dates through the app, especially the first handful, and the banter between Caitlin and 'Michael' was amusing. In the end, the romance didn't really do it for me, but parts of the story did make me laugh, and that's always welcome.
