Must read 🏆

Harvard is a unique love story, with a remarkable couple at it's heart. I really enjoyed Helena and Thor's story! 💖

The title "Harvard" made me interested in the book in the first place! I am so glad I got the opportunity to review this story. Thor and Helena's love story was mesmerizing in every way of possible. I loved how their past and present moments were woven together to build up the plot! Their chemistry was undeniable from the very beginning of the book. I loved getting to experience their blooming romance. :')

My favourite part of reading Harvard was how it portrayed the message of "Love Heals" 💚 Helena and Thor both had their own issues and insecurities. They chose to fight their demons by being "together", and that aspect of the story won my heart. I should mention this: Helena and Thor's story made me think about this lyric from Long Live, a Taylor Swift song:

"I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you." 🧡

You'll understand how the line fits Harvard when you read the book!

The thought processes of the characters were very insightful too. Getting to see Helena and Thor face their struggles ~ while evaluating their issues in different made reading this book so much better. The unexpected situations that they faced couldn't make me put the book down AT ALL. I had to know how it ended.(I feel so silly, I didn't pick up the book earlier because of work pressure, but after reading it, I feel so refreshed! I should have read it before!)

The writer's style of writing is simple yet so beautiful. I could picture the setting of the story perfectly in my mind. I can say this without a doubt, Kirsten Pursell's writing made me connect to the characters more than I thought I would.

If you're looking for a realistic romance novel, I highly recommend picking Harvard up. You won't be disappointed!
