This story reeks of instalove, underdeveloped characters, and one draggy plot. There was one moment I didn’t know what the heck I was even reading.
Evan and Juliet meet and of course it’s like a “love at first sight thing.”
Gag. Me. Now.
Falling in love was easy but the couple encounters a world of problems when secrets come up, drama from females, and Jett’s mysterious stalker. I love that Evan stayed by her side, peppering her with love and support when she needed it.
He was totally swoony when he needed to be. So, aside from all of the drama with the psychotic broad, drama with the paparazzi, <—-(very difficult world to spell BTW), and the lies on Evan’s part, there’s a BUTT LOAD of questions I asked myself.
Jett- *Insert sigh here* I’ve never had to work so hard to connect with a character in my life. IN MY LIFE…. She is an okay heroine. Nothing special about her. No quirks. Memorable moments. I do love the fact that she loves to cook.
And but of course I likes to eat. 😉
Evan- I’m pretty sure he was the second or third string quarterback on a football team? So DUH, I had the hots for him. And there were so many times I just wanted to legit smell him, like my mind painted this picture in my head that he smells really good. And oh, oh I’m sure this dude has a killer smile.
Auggie– I WANT HIM as a best friend. He was always there for Jett when she needed him and she could always count on him to whip out his iPad when Jett needed to decipher things. Gosh. He was just UBER AWESOMETASTICAL.
Adam– Rather hard to connect with because he seemed like another Evan. And, I also had the strong desire to smell Adam too. (is that like totally odd? i SO don’t care. i know he smells heavenly.)
And…. What the heck was the plot? I DESPISE not being able to distinguish what the heck the plot is. Whilst reading this I kept asking myself what the heck it even was. Granted, it finally showed up… in the middle of the book when I had already lost interest….
