Just when I thought I told myself I'll refrain myself from reading these
kind of new adult books, you know, with broken hero/heroine past and present and read some feel good or funny themes, yet, I found myself reading this kind, again...and after finishing it, I haven't regretted it. I actually have a lot of half-finished books lately that I put on hold as of the moment because of that
theme and, I don't know, I kinda got tired of it...but, I will eventually get back on it when I'm in the mood to read it. I just hope that I haven't forgotten the previous happenings in that book so I will not scratch my head and ask myself, why???
Now. Wow. This is pretty intense. I loved how [a:K.A. Tucker|4866520|K.A. Tucker|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1351111292p2/4866520.jpg] makes her character--the perfectly flawed one that you can't help but be sort of attached to it. I can pretty relate with the heroine, Livie, with all that awkward, blushing ferociously and sweating like a pig on uncomfortable situations and yep, attractive-uber-hot guys and embarrass myself on how I handle it not very well...and yes, the things that you made up in your head because you think they
would be proud if you go on that path. I appreciate that the author made that
part be sort of vague in the end...although I would have loved to know what was really her final decision. Trial and error
, eh? And then there's the hero, Ashton. Gods, the fuckin' tension is so palpable between Livie and him and I can't help but cheer them on...knowing my opinion about "cheating". Well, there's that phrase about exception to the rule
and all that shite, and there are a lot of technicalities with their situations...so, yeah, that's why I am not uncomfortable on reading this unlike. And yep, I loved his character, too. All in all, this is a good read...but, I think in term of dramatics and all that crap, the first one was a lot emotional and heavier than this...and maybe I should be thankful for that because I don't really need this
kind of drama as of the moment? Um. Dunno. But, unlike the first book, this actually made me shed a tear. Maybe, I'm a little "unemotional
" when I read the first book...and if I probably read the first one now, I might probably cry just like what I did here. Hah.
Looking forward for the next book. :)
