Someday Girl for me was: A very sexy read!!!
While a little slow at the beginning it definitely started picking up and I found myself becoming sucked into the world and the enriching characters living in it.
We have Cat and she’s super sheltered but one chance encountering with Jace, the love interest, and it has her all flustered. She begins questioning the life she used or live compared to the one she’s currently living. I loved how very relatable she was. She’s socially awkward and nervous around people. Sometimes I can be like this so I really found her endearing and she felt like an old friend which was pretty awesome.
I loved going with her during her journey to learn, find, and be herself. Jace may be the only thing that can help her do that.
This book is told in dual perspectives which I am slowly becoming a fan of..believe it or not I hated dual POV before because I’ve read some not so good boos like this and couldn’t connectvery well with the characters but in turn I’ve read some stellar books that changed my view point completely!
I am starting to really like Jace. He isn’t your typical arrogant male leading character. He was refreshing and I can tell that the first time he and Cat met there was something strong between them (even if Cat was annoyingly slow to notice)
I also grew to like the secondary characters AKA ‘Cat’s roomies’. They were very refreshing. I expected them to be all beotchy and rude but it was refreshing to find that they weren’t like that at all. In fact they all warmed up to each other very well and I can tell they are now very close and actually have her best interests in mind unlike someone very close to her (but you’ll have to find out who r just shocking person is by reading)
Jace is SUPA sexy and I loved to read his POV. It was full of that good ‘ol sarcasm and wit that I ♥!
The plot was slow moving at first but like I said it did pick up around the middle part and by then I was already invested in the characters lives and cared enough about then to stick around and see what else they went through.
Something I didn’t care for in the book was the use of so many italics and exclamation marks. While I feel it’s ideal in some locations, it’s not needed on every single page and I felt that it took away from the book. I guess the author thought that by putting them it would somehow draw the effect of what was happening in the scene but it only drew me away from it.
What were your thoughts and comments about this book? Did you guys feel any different?
