Where do I start with this one? It was definitely an emotional rollercoaster. There is drama as soon as I opened the book. I love that it catches your attention as soon as you turn to page one. I seriously had my OMG face on as soon as I started reading the first chapter. I really love this new NA genre. It is a bit more mature than the traditional YA with not as much detail as in the adult books. It has great balance. There are some pretty adult things that happen in this book so I do recommend that an older audience reads this one.
I really enjoyed the storyline. It is a contemporary novel, and it deals with very real problems that women may go through in their lifetimes. You have loss, love, forgiveness, and finding yourself. I had a love-hate relationship with the main character Jacqueline. I felt that she didn’t deal with the situations presented to her well. There were times that I sympathized with her, and then there were times I was saying to myself, “what is she thinking?” I don’t know if I’m just a paranoid type person but, I think one would be a bit more frantic after what Jacqueline has to deal with. I didn’t feel as if she was really traumatized about what happened to her. I felt like she was more concerned over her recent breakup than what had just happened to her.
Lucas was a whole different ballgame. This boy sounds yummy to the core. He is your average bad boy with a sweet side. He is a looker with loads of ladies after him and he only has eyes for Jacqueline. I was totally sporting the “awwww” face with I read the love scenes. He is everything you need in a man. He has his sweet romantic side as well as the I-will-protect-you-until-I-die side. I seriously wished that I could jump into the novel so that I could cuddle with him lol! He is just a really nice guy that had some bad things happen and just needs that one girl to make it all better. He is definitely swoon worthy.
I really enjoyed Jacqueline’s roommate Erin, she is just too cute. I love her attitude. She is a carefree college girl with a big heart. She strikes me as the type of friend who would do anything for you and always had your back. She was one of my favorite characters, after of course Lucas.
There are some pretty crummy guys in this book. Kennedy being one of them. I wanted to punch him so hard in the face. He is Jacqueline’s’ ex and is total jerk. He sees that she has moved on and the moment he feels her out of reach he wants to come back. I hate guys like that and I seethed the whole time he would be in a chapter. He is just a grade A jerk. He is just as bad as the villain in the book. Buck is in a category all on his own. I wanted someone to run him over with a car the whole time. You will have to read to find out what finally happens to that guy.
All in all it was a good light read. I was able to finish the book in two days and I would recommend it to a friend. I give this book 3-1/2 out of 5.
