“She kissed me like she had been created to do it exactly the way I liked and matched my rhythm the way only people who’ve had lots and lots of sex together normally managed to do.”Told via Shaw and Rule’s alternating first person point of view, this is a new adult novel that veers on the angsty side but not over the top angst. Just the struggling to find your place in the world, forge your identity, and be your own person kind of angst that comes with the territory of that age range. And living up to expectations is a huge theme of the novel.
“We were both people trying to live beyond the boundaries everyone else seemed to want to set for us…..We both desperately wanted to be seen for the value we had without other people’s expectations of what we should or shouldn’t be doing,”
“…but if it’s good, it’s gonna be so very, very good.”
“Rule, any chick who can put up with the headache that is you, well I’d put a goddamn diamond on her finger.”
This would be the point to stop reading if you feel certain things are spoilers. However, if you are more concerned with things that may be ‘deal breakers’ when purchasing and spoilers take a back seat, then keep reading.
So what items/comments did I come across in other reviews that would have given me pause if I read them first? Well there were two items that cropped up enough times that I felt it warrants a clarification asI’d hate to see it defer a reader from giving this book a chance.
