“Choosing to be with you isn’t a difficult decision, Jacqueline,” he breathed, pulling back one final time to stare into my eyes. “It’s easy. Incredibly easy.”
Oh man, it was so good. Really good.
So why the heck did I gave it 3.5 and I didn’t even have the heart to round it up to four stars? I don’t know why, but something’s off with my ratings today. I just can’t force myself to raise it, even just a tiny notch. I will feel a little dishonest if I did.
I have soft spot for Ms. Webber’s books. I fell in love with her Between the Line series (though I haven’t finished it yet, I wasn’t really that amped to read Reid’s story. But I’ll it read…soon (hopefully, not never). Interesting though, I was a little disappointed that there’s only one MC for this book. Jacqueline was hardly impressive but that said I liked her. If only the book was written in dual POVs I would have enjoyed it more. There are some things I want to know about Lucas in a more personal level. His past, his story was obviously more interesting than Jacqueline’s (disclaimer: at least for me). But I get her story was relevant too but I’m more connected with Lucas (and not because he’s a guy). It was just shocking, the trauma this guy experienced was the one that speaks to me the most. Connected to me in an emotional level.
I liked the romance. It was really deliciously (and oh so hotly!) written. I liked that they were developed, connected in different things, and not just the physical. I like London, the tutor and I loved the email exchanges. It was fun, it was like synch of minds in kinda (somewhat) nonchalant way. I also the bad boy image, (though I don’t normally like tats, me approves of the ink. I like the reason why he did it.). But like I said earlier, the broken guy was the one the truly captivated me. The one that pushed me to go on, and on, and on. Because I want to know why. I want him to move on. I want him to be whole again. And I thank Jackie for that.
What have you told me, over and over? It wasn’t your fault. You need to talk to someone, and figure out how to forgive yourself for responsibility your mother never would have wanted you to accept. Will you try? Please?” He brushed my tears from my face. “How did I find you?” I shook my head. “Maybe I’m exactly where I should be after all.”
Here’s a confession, I struggled to write a review for this one. While I rated it average, it was only because I’m slightly (ok, not really slight but really) dissatisfied than there were a little Lucas than what I wanted. As simple as that. So ignore my rating. This one’s good.
