* Review copy granted in exchange for an honest review*
You should never judge a book by it's cover and it's especially true with this one. Don't let the cover put you off!
This book was a pleasure to read and I highly recommend it to any New Adult fan. It is well written, the story has a wonderful balance between normalcy and drama and it gave me lots of fluttery feels
drawing me in and keeping me reading until the end. I read it in one sitting.
The first couple of chapters don't give you a good first impression of Cole - our leading man - but don't let it give you the wrong impression of him, he did something stupid but he's not stupid, he's not an asshole and - unlike the guys in alot of New Adult books - he isn't a man-whore. He is a genuinely nice guy who has genuine concerns for his career and handles it the way he feels he needs to. He cares for people, he isn't afraid of getting involved with people and he is sexy too.
Everly has had a really hard time of it in her life (I wont go into why as I don't want to spoil it) but she hasn't let it defeat her and has worked incredibly hard to achieve her goals in life. She does tend to run from things and hold herself at a distance and I don't really blame her but she does overcome this.
The relationship Everly develops with Cole is realistic. It isn't instalove and you become invested in them as a couple and can see them realistically making it in the long haul...
I've found a new author that I like and that makes it a good day for me! Will definitely look out for more from this author and highly recommend this book.
4 out of 5 stars!
