What do you do when the entire nation is on lockdown?
If you’re an heiress to a billion-dollar fashion company, then you quarantine in a glamorous cabin and finish your final semester of NYU online. The best way to focus on her upcoming valedictorian honor is away from her family, classmates, and the paparazzi. Cameron St. James is ready to get out of the big city and head Upstate for seclusion, despite her parents’ pleas to stay home.
What do you do when a pandemic is sweeping the world?
If you’re barely making ends meet, then you isolate yourself in your best friend’s mountain cabin with breathtaking views and no neighbors for miles. It’s the perfect safe place away from three roommates who don’t take the life-threatening epidemic seriously. Elijah Ross is ready to work remotely and focus on his next big promotion, assuming he’ll still have a job after this.
What happens when things don’t go as planned, and you’re stuck with the one person you dislike the most?
You improvise and do whatever it takes to avoid each other, though it proves to be impossible. The cold evenings alone turn into movie and popcorn nights together by the fireplace. Days turn into weeks, and eventually, more than just a friendship blossoms. As the unknown haunts them, they lean on one another for comfort—until someone pops their safety bubble and threatens everything.
I have no idea how long this crisis will last, but Cameron St. James may kill me before it’s over.
ARC REVIEW ➼
The Two of Us is an extremely relatable given current events, but also just a fun read overall.
Cameron St. James is an heiress. She doesn’t cook, clean or do really anything for herself, other than her school work. Elijah Ross is a hard-working real estate agent who has worked hard for everything in his life. He’s known Cami since they were young kids, but there was always some animosity between the two of them. So, what happens when two people who can’t stand each other are stuck in isolation together? You get Cami and Eli’s wild wide of a romance.
I wasn’t a fan of Cami at the start of the book. I loved her wittiness and that she struggled with anxiety that many people experience and was relatable, but she also had a snobiness to her, however, the growth the had throughout this book was fantastic. I was totally Team Cami by the end. Eli I was loving from the start! He is sweet, kind, and I’m kind of in love with the fact he had a dobie! These two had some chemistry though. There was so much tension between them and I LOVED the banter. Plus, I can totally relate to their Netflix choices!
The Two of Us was a great read and I can’t wait for more of this series, because I’m definitely curious about Kendall and Ryan!
