I mean can Christina Lauren really ever write a bad book?
Is there ever going to be a time they don’t create these characters and scenes that are the most perfect combination of sweet and sexy?
Nah…didn’t think so either.
I loved how this book seemed to touch on so much more than the sexual relationship of Oliver and Lola. While all their other books always feature the build and realization of amazing relationships, this one -to me- seemed to be the most romantic out of the bunch. Maybe because they started as friend first, maybe because Oliver’s feelings were so deep rooted and he wasn’t at all scared to share them with the world and most importantly, with Lola. Maybe because their back stories and fears seemed so real. Whatever the case may be, their relationship was so insanely romantic and adorable I think my cheeks were about ready to burst from smiling so much.
I absolutely adored Oliver’s understanding, protective nature, and Lola’s fierce, determined attitude. And being reacquainted with the rest of the gang, Ansel + Mia and Finn + Harlow, was such a treat for fans of the series.
As always, the story was filled with some INSANELY HOT HOT HOT scenes…*ahem*
…and some of the most ROMANTIC (I know I’ve said romantic like 4 times but..did I mention Oliver is SO EFFIN ROMANTIC?) lines CL has written.
“I don’t think I’ve ever loved anyone quite like this. In this sort of giddy, obliterating game-changing way. Where I can see myself with her for the rest of my life…”
“Is this what it means to become infatuated with someone? A heart becomes a hybrid, half yours, half theirs. Mine beats like this because it wants out. My chest aches to let his heart in.”
SEE??! SEE?! What did I say…SO ROMANTIC!
The only only only thing I would have liked was a longer, more extended ending. It seemed just a tad abrupt to me. (Probably because I just adored these two so much and my greedy little hands just didn’t want it to end.)
