Sound like a shock?
Someone Else's Fairytale swept me up in the love triangle between our world's equivalent of One Direction stuffed into a twenty-something guy, Jason Vanderholt and Chloe's best friend, just Matthew.
It's written in superb style, utterly unputdownable and the romantic read for readers who don't want romance. This novel focuses as much on family and personal crises as it does the romantic aspect of Chloe's life.
I don't reveal spoilers on Novel Girl but let me say that the resulting partner Chloe picks makes for my ultimate couple crush. You heard me. I'm crushing on a fictional character's fictional love interest and I'm not one bit ashamed.
Someone Else's Fairytale is such a perfect read for other book lovers like me who don't want to be seen reading a lovey-dovey romance novel. This novel talks about a violent past in Chloe's life. Her situation with Jason Vanderholt is 100% someone else's fairytale. She's had a horrible past that's grown her up quicker than her 21 years.
There's so much substance to this book between the not-so fairytale romance and Chloe's fight to keep her dangerous past behind her.
5 stars and recommended!
At the beginning, I was wondering if it was going to be a little slow. I found Chloe moody and slightly irritating. But then you found out her story and you know what? She can be a little bit moody if she wants to. Girl has been through some serious cr*p. So be patient with her, she's alright really.
But it didn't last long. After a while I found myself really warming to her. She wasn't materialistic or shallow. She didn't lead Jason on, she was honest and cautious, yet friendly and polite.
I loved the dialogue in this book. It was so true and believable. There were moments of awkwardness, as there are in real life, their were misunderstandings and there were some great one liners that really had me giggling.
'"Jason Vanderholt is off the market."
"I wasn't ever for sale," muttered Jason.'
I loved Jason. The fail safe way to make me enjoy a book is to give me a hero I can really fall for. And Jason was just that. Okay, let's talk about Jason. Movie star; Check! Filthy rich; Check! (That's right, I'm no Chloe, I wouldn't say no) Swoonworthy good looks; Check! Great at organising romantic dates; Check! Great family; Check! Respectful and sensitive; Check! Do you need me to go on??
"I just need to have you close. The more time I spend with you, the more I want."
Oh, and if all that weren't enough...
"If I wanted to buy you off I'd, I dunno, give you a big gift certificate to Amazon or something."
Yeh, that's right boys... take note! The way to a womans' heart? Amazon vouchers! You know it! And wine and chocolates compliment them brilliantly too.Read more ›
Chloe Winters isn't your average 21 year old, although she is bright and is training in forensic science, her underlying views on all things fantastical and romantic became stale the moment her life took a dramatic turn for the worse when she was 11. The day she nearly died at the hands of an estranged family member, was the day Chloe vowed to control her own life, and never again let a man get close on any physical level. Never having had a serious relationship, I think it's safe to say that these traumatic turn of events stunted her emotional level intake, but she was cool with that! Well, that is until the day some sexy Hollywood hunk from her hometown returns home to shoot a movie at her school.
Immediately, Jason is taken with her honesty, and all the charms in the world will not deter her from showing a lack of interest, given his efforts. Slowly we start to see a friendship blossom, with honesty at the forefront.
When things start to take another turn, and the man that hurt Chloe is released from jail, Jason proves his worth and helps support her through the ordeal, proving once again that his interest in Chloe comes from within, which evidently starts to build a strong foundation, and gradually their friendship turns into something more...
On the downside, Jason's gruelling work commitments prove a hardship, and we watch these two kids struggle with coming to terms with foreign emotions, long distance separation and tabloid press.
This is a great YA story, a very lighthearted read that makes you smile.Read more ›
