This is one of my very favorite "meets". What the hell am I talking about, you ask? When the lead female and male "meet". Their first encounter, the spark that ignites the entire story. This one was one of the funniest, most original I have ever read. Their initial reactions to each other and the situation they create, perfect! I loved it..
The connection to both characters was easy, not forced and being able to get glimpses from both via their POV's helped create the bond. Texts, banter and a love/hate friendship was so fun to watch unfold. Some of their situations that would typically having me squirming with embarrassment, instead had me cracking the hell up and had me wanting for more. This book is one of those that once you start reading...you don't put the book down until the unfortunate words "the end". Even at that point you want more.
I have read and enjoyed every book Ms. Keeland has written but lately they just seem...more. Heart, angst, heartache, love, sadness, joy and friendships that are so real they resonate deeper. Every story she tells delves a little deeper in to the dark depths of my blackened heart..lol! I loved this story. Broken people that carry the weight of guilt and responsibility but have enough empathy, likeness and understanding that they are drawn to each other.
"That's no being afraid. Being afraid is when you let fear control your life, let it stop you from doing what you want. When you're afraid, but you look your fear in the eye and live, that's courageous."
And there it was again. That invisible connection I'd felt to him since the first night we met.
