Following a trauma Josie is finally able to go to college safe in the knowledge that her best friend Seth will also be there. A new place allows her to meet new people and before too long Blake crosses her path and fireworks start to fly. All is not what it seems and terrible secrets and heartbreaks are lurking over the next 4 years for Josie, Seth and Blake.
The book flicks back and forth between the present day and periods in the past, slowly the story unfolds and the secrets are revealed. I had pretty much figured the story out within a couple of chapters but that did not detract from the amazing story. I have been frustrated and yelled at Josie, Seth and Blake at different points of the story and can only assume that this book will stay with me for a long time.
Nearly forgot, Seth sounds incredibly hot.
So....we go from present day, to 2 years ago, at the end of the 2 years ago chapter we can go back to 4 years ago, and then we jump back to the present before we are sent back off to 6 years ago. I found it really confusing at times.
Although I know what happened overall, It just felt disjointed, messy and disorganised, and didn't flow very well at all.
As I mentioned though, it is a very good story, and once I got to the end I thought 'wow'!
I will say that I had pretty much figured out both the 'secrets' by the half way point, but it didn't take away from it.
Yes I will definitely be buying the next book as I need to see where we go from here.
Just in the next one, I hope it flows a bit more freely :)
Emotional roller-coaster, love triangle. drama and romance. This book had it all and it was brilliant!!!
Wow this book sucked me in so badly that I couldn't put it down I was so drawn into the story that when it was revealed as to why Blake suddenly went cold on her I was taken aback - but having said that once I finished I realized that it was kind of obvious but not when you were reading the story.
Lets back up a bit....I am going to try be as spoiler free as I can but Its really hard as I would love to just dive right in and tell you everything!
Josie is a strong character who doesn't pull her punches, her best friend Seth and Brooke all attend the same school.
Seth and Jo have an almost friends with benefits relationship that resulted in both of developing feelings for each other but neither of them admitting it so when they all go to a party one night Jo meets Blake and that is when the story really starts.
There were times when Jo and Seth annoyed the hell out of me and I wanted to just shake them! And when she was with Blake she was "alive", but when he turns cold and pushes away it left me feeling that he was a bit of an arse for doing that to her despite everything that had happened to her. But come the end I can see why he did what he did...
This book is a roller-coaster - the format is a back and forth timeline which works great for this story line it gives you tidbits making you read more and more to get the bottom of the story.
The ending,..... wow....it left me wanting more, more, more! I must buy book 2 asap to find out what happens.
I want to start by saying that “I’m sorry it took me so long to get here pussycat” is my absolute favourite line in this book and to be honest it’s absolute saving grace.
Up until that point I had honestly started to despair.
This book is a confusing mind fluck; it flips back and forth in time and is honestly one of the most frustrating books I’ve ever read.
Several times I almost threw my kindle across the room and declared it a DNF. But that one little line, that final glimmer of hope is what made me glad I persevered.
I’m gonna have to rant for a minute so please bear with me. Josie is either the most stupid, oblivious idiot or the most manipulative, game playing cow bag in the world and even after 36 chapters I honest have no idea which it is.
Is she using Blake or is she using Seth or are they both using her????
I must have asked myself these questions at least a hundred times during this book and I’m honestly none the wiser.
I hated Josie and Blake together, it felt forced and fake and a little too flucked up to be real.
From very early on it was obvious what the big unmentioned secret was. I get the impression that the reader was always supposed to figure it out straight away and then sit on tender hooks waiting for the crap to hit the fan!!
There’s so much wrong with this weird love triangle drama quad plot, but there’s one very right thing and that’s Seth!!!Read more ›
