Scott is Brooke’s soul mate, only he doesn’t know it yet. She’s sure she can convince him by moving to the same city he is, New York City!
This is my third Colasanti and I finally “get” it.
I can now see the authors appeal and that these characters are very relatable. Colasanti’s writing as improved leaps and bounds and I really enjoyed the story; I think it’s truthful, without being in-your-face and invasive. The characters are real, but still retain the Teenager-Stereotype Colasanti has basically trademarked. I think fans of this author will be overjoyed by this newest edition to her collection!
I am still not completely sold, simply because these are just not the characters I can connect with on a deeper level. I still enjoyed the read and flew through it!
Notes on the Names:
Meh. Boring. Rhiannon did make an appearance, however, and that jazzed things up in the name department, however.
Thoughts on the Cover:
I can’t decide who the dude on the cover is... he’s too beefy to be John, but Scott has blond hair. Conundrum.
Also, don’t we all want this girls butt?!
Parental Book Review *spoilers*
