This was a really unique book and I’ll tell you why. This is one of the first books I’ve read, or can remember reading, where the love interest…doesn’t speak until the end of the book.
It was actually really fun to see the interactions between Gabby and Clay, a little frustrating of course but fun seeing how she would get answers out of him.
That was my favorite part of the book, I could feel a connection between them and I loved them together however, there were some things that I didn’t like. Those two were fun to read about so I just took away one star.
One of the things that I didn’t like was the constant repetition. I get it, you don’t want to send the wrong signal because you’re a special snowflake.
She’s not just a special snowflake, she’s a super special snowflake and the readers are reminded of it every five minutes. I guess it can’t be helped though, with the special snowflake ability she has, but still.
Another thing I didn’t agree with were the completely unnecessary descriptions. I don’t think the readers want to know what the entire house actually looks like. Get on with the story, I want more interactions, I don’t want to know what color the wallpaper is or if it’s in need of a re-paint. Say it needs a little TLC and get on with it.
The writing was simple but it was done tastefully in my opinion, I know it kept me going back for more even though I had to study. To keep it from getting boring since it was a bunch of day-to-to activity, there was a little action and mystery about her ability thrown in, although the thing about her ability was just a little confusing, I couldn’t really follow it.
Now then, don’t let my little dislikes persuade you not to read the book, those are just little things compared to the interactions between Clay and Gabby.
Another good little story for teens as well, a little starter into the world of paranormal romance that’s also clean for those who don’t want the adult romance yet.
Thank you for reading my review.
P.S. Is it just me or does the girl on the cover look a little awkward?
