Well as regular readers will know I love a good romance with an edge to the story, and this looked like something a bit different. Well, different it was...but not in a good way for me :( The characters which had sounded so promising, were incredibly juvenile in actions. I'd hoped that as they were supposed to be mid twenties plus that I'd be spared the teenage petty angst that dominates a number of romance books. That's fine if you're a teen or new adult, but for those of us a bit older we want people with problems and relationships that have a bit more substance. I thought I'd get it in this book but instead we have characters that are older in years, but sadly act more like 15 year olds.
Justin and Molly meet up after seven years when she needs an escort for the school ten year reunion. There were incidents here that were reminiscent of a school reunion - but with teens, not supposedly mature working people. Then there's the issue of things like the emails and later texts Molly gets. Two issues here, first she thinks its her friend pranking her, then when they discover its not there's all out panic...come on people - its a couple of marginally iffy emails. They don't contain any threats, and most people would just dump them, but these characters go off into full blown paranoia. Then there's the fact Molly is supposed to be a computer expert. Top in her field etc and yet its Justin that they need to look at the email. Though he's had a copy forwarded he says he needs to see her PC, - well, I'm not an expert but even I know that he doesn't...it won't have anything on that he cant get from the email itself.Read more ›
Protagonists Molly and Justin start off in their late teens as they're in college but then as the book jumps to five years later, I guess they're supposed to be roughly 24/25 or so. Unfortunately, both characters (Molly more so) come across as extremely juvenile throughout the book. Neither are especially mature for their ages and act like a couple of teenagers a lot of the time. The dialogue used also didn't fit in with the ages of the characters which was a shame. These things made it really hard to connect with either character.
This book shouldn't really be classed as a romance because there isn't much of that in the plot. The majority of the plot focuses on the problems that both Molly and Justin have had over the course of their lives and what happens when they come back together. Molly and Justin share a kiss but nothing more ever really happens. I would class Out of the Blue as more of a mystery than anything else because there are loads of twists and turns that keep you guessing.
My main problem with this book is that some things just did not add up. Molly is supposed to be super intelligent and has a job working with computers. But, when she starts receiving strange emails, she claims she has no idea where to start to trace where it came from. I just didn't understand how the character could be written in such a confusing way. It was like the author had forgotten what job she'd given Molly and what she'd done at college.
Some of the plot did slightly redeem the book a little bit though.Read more ›
