Upsy Daisy by Chelsie Edwards (Book Review)

⭐⭐⭐ (3 Stars)

As a huge fan of The Winston Brother’s series by Penny Reid, I was SO excited to read about the famous Daisy Payton. When this book was announced I didn’t know we would be reading bout Daisy’s origin story, all the way back in the 70s, and it was such a treat to go back to see her in college. Also, kudos to Chelsie Edwards for doing a great job at depicting the time period, not only in describing it but making the feel of the time come through the page.

However, and this might be a little because I had such high expectations for Daisy, but the story just wasn’t the super swoony romance I was looking for. Trevor, our hero, is a great character, and I really did see the chemistry between them. But in a lot of ways I think this was more about Daisy finding herself than about the romance per se. We see a lot about her journey with friends and family and the pressure she feels by carrying the Payton name – which means she comes from a wealthy and successful family.

Also, Upsy Daisy was rooted in a trope that is one of my pet peeves – miscommunication. I guess, that communication quick, open, and honest as we have today was not as possible in the 70s. Not only because people were more reserved, but of course modern technology wasn’t a thing. So secrets are easier to be kept and misinterpretations of facts are easier as well. But. this trope specifically was dragged out for a very long time, and I just wanted to sit both Daisy and Trevor down for a minute and make them use their words.

I guess that in conclusion this was still very sweet and I’m glad to know more about Daisy’s history. But I did want more from her story.
