In a nut shell:
Complex | Great Characters | Lies | History | Loved It
I devoured this book in a matter of hours! I am such a dork, but at least I admit it – I read this book on New Year’s Eve… It was a really good read and I honestly felt for the characters. Robin Bielman is a fantastic write – LOVE HER – she is able to take a few delicate subjects and weave them into a wonderful story that I really do think everyone will love.
Not going to lie – these characters while I love them, got on my nerves… but that’s what made them seem like real people – seriously – like people I could know and be friends with.
I loved how this book was written split between both Lyric and Quinn – I loved how different and yet how similar they really are. I loved the tension between them & the always present chemistry. It was like a living thing between them – so think and awesome – LOVED IT! My favorite part of this story is watching them both learn something – each character has to face something that needs to be addressed… not comfortable, but it has to be done. The pace of this book was nice – not too fast & not too slow. The flow and the writing of this book, as I said before I loved, I was into this story by the second page and didn't stop reading until the end. And even then I would have loved to see what happened next.
Happy New Year ;)
About the Author:
|photo and bio taken from Robin's website|
I’m surrounded by boys ~ my hubby (and high school sweetheart), two kids, and the cutest mini Labradoodle in existence. (The hubby and kids are pretty cute too.) I’m a Southern California girl and there’s no place I’d rather be than the beach. However, I long to go on adventures and there are many places that I really want to visit – Paris, Ireland, Costa Rica, Yellowstone National Park, Italy, London, and so many more. I have a major crush on two fictional characters: Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files books, and Remy Chandler from Thomas Sniegoski’s Remy Chandler novels. When I’m not writing, I love to read, bake, and go to the movies. I also run a few times a week on my treadmill while watching my favorite TV shows. I drive too fast, drink too much caffeine, and if every day were Cupcake Day, I’d be a happy camper! Oh, and I love dumb blonde jokes.
