I was given an ARC for an honest review.
I'm so conflicted over this book. I loved to hate it. But oh so loved it.
Eevie loved to read about her book boyfriends. She had the fairy tale image in her head. But let's face it, they are imaginary men, fictional characters that are there to dream about.
Okay yes we all have book boyfriends. And yes we all live in the real world and get that the fairy tale is all it may not be, but honestly if she has kept her virtue for so long. Then a little longer can't kill.
John pushed my buttons so much. He put Eevie in the most awkward position. To be placed in a situation like that with your best friend must be horrible. She never looked at him that way. Yes she loves him in her own way, but when she is imagining herself with her book boyfriends and fantasising. Well let's be honest John was never in her dreams.
He had been her one constant through so much. He was the person she ran to when she was at her lowest. Until he gave her no other options.
I know Eeive was hurt and her birthday was fast approaching. But I couldn't get my head around why Eevie was so willing to allow a nobody to deflower her. She had saved herself for so long. Why try and give it away on a drunken night out.
Aaarrrgggghhh. I so wanted to scream at her.
I loved that no matter what was happening, Eevie's friends were always there. They knew when she was up and down. And supported her.
Oh and Aidan ( swoon ), was sweet and adorable. He reminds me of the boy next door.
Once there eyes met you could see the chemistry. It just took them a little longer to get to where they needed to be. The only problem was.Read more ›
Sound familiar to anyone? Yep, me too...
So poor Eevie is only experiencing the joy of romance through her book boyfriends. For the past few years she's had to step up to take care of her family during her mum's sickness. Now, she's finally fled the nest and she's determined to make up for lost time and start living a real life. She's hoping to find that elusive guy with a 'spark':
The perfect guy and girl always find each other in my books. When will it be my turn?
Eevie experiences a whole array of typical boyfriends in this story - as an aficionado of romantic fiction, she knows what she's dealing with and she recognizes their character traits from her favorite books. This for me was what set this story apart from the hundreds of other romances out there. Her wry observations made this feel so fresh and original.
So everyone from the male best friend (who's secretly in love with her), to the experienced player (who treats her mean to keep her keen) and the unavailable (but cute) friend of a friend crosses her path in this and as we all know from the books we read, any of them could be that one with the spark, no matter how unlikely it may seem at first.
There's a healthy dose of reality in this book - one of her boyfriends suffers from premature ejaculation. Gasp! Well that's a new one for me in adult romantic fiction:
A virgin, and a chronic premature ejaculator. You wouldn't read about it.
Well...I have now!Read more ›
The story follows through Eevie’s coming of age, leading up to her twenty first birthday and the struggles and trepidation she went through to get there. Through family responsibilities, Eevie has been held back on her young adulthood but now with things at home improved she is able to flee the nest and take her first steps into her own independence and start living her life. The book starts as Eevie has moved into her own apartment with her friend Chrystal.
I must say I did find the first third of the book a little slow but in hindsight it was a required input so the reader got a full understanding of who Eevie was and what she had gone through. I liked that it did not make her out to be a repressed and wounded soul but actually celebrated the strong woman she turned out to be because of it.
Her difficulty with her best friend Ian, and how the relationship change was forced upon her was an eye opener, especially his ‘condition’ – that was a first for me to read in a new adult book! I liked how you could actually see how Eevie was aging and all the effed up stuff being thrown at her added strength to her persona. When she seemed to get over one thing another was thrown at her, so having come to terms with what happened with Ian, she went through the craziness that Alex landed on her. I must say for one so young she went through some tough challenges in such a short space of time!
However the story took on a different feel when we got to Aiden. He was just a delight to devour reading – from his spiky dark hair to his twinkling eyes to his toned abs, he was a new book boyfriend to love. Wouldn’t we all love our book boyfriends to become real like Eevie’s ‘Braydens et al’ did?Read more ›
