Ok, I really wanted to love this book from the start but I felt the start lagged. The characters were interesting but the way that it was approached it just felt like I was bored, but I slowly got sucked into the story of lexi and Killen. The characters were great once you got past the first meeting stage and they became comfortable around each other. The hero was just yummy, he had a mystery about him that you couldn’t help be be drawn to. Lexi was very witty and smart with some sarcasm thrown in. It was a cute plot, and I love seeing young love so that helped a lot with this story.
I feel that if we would have had his POV thrown in it would have made this book better. It might just be me in a book rut, because I did enjoy the plot, and the characters, it just fell flat for me. Maybe it was because I haven’t read the other books in the series and they kind of go hand in hand. I didn’t realize this until I read this book.
It does end in a cliffhanger and I will read the next book because after that ending I am really wondering what’s going to happen!
4 stars because of the last few chapters.
People made love seem complicated. Intricate. Novels tried to capture its intensity, music tried to rein in its soul.
I read every novel I could. I lived and breathed every song that I could listen to. The sounds filled up my unquiet mind.
Then came him.
He brought with him the beauty of silence that echoed through my soul and showed me love wasn’t complicated. It was simple. Beautiful.
Some say love at first sight didn’t exist. That you couldn’t find your soul mate at sixteen years old. Those were people rooted in reality, chained to the confines of life that dictated how you were meant to think. Killian broke those chains. He broke everything. Shattered it so I could see that reality was overrated. That daydreams could somehow come to life.
My life tumbled into darkness in the time after I met him. So dark I thought I’d never see the light again. But he was always at my side. His life meant he knew how to navigate the dark. Lead me out.
I waded through the darkness with him at my side.
We’d be together forever, I was certain of that.
Until I wasn’t.
