I liked it. I loved it. I really, truly enjoyed reading this book!
I really enjoy books where the characters are trying to stay away from one another, for whatever reason. It makes the attraction they have that much stronger and that much more potent. The author did a great job with these characters on this aspect. They tried, so hard, until it was evident they were both meant to be.
I appreciated the authors writing style and technique. The characters felt real, they were unfiltered at times, and they were relatable. While they are fictional characters, their characters easily felt as if they were real people in the real world. I applaud the author for the manner in which she wrote these characters.
Is this really a debut novel by Amanda Kelley? Wow! I’m quite impressed. Her writing was well developed and didn’t real as a first novel. The descriptions were incredible. It made visualizing the story a piece of cake. The details made things make sense and made them fall into place. They also kept my mind at attention and kept me reading.
I would most definitely recommend this story to you. It was such a great read.
