4.5 Sea urchins stars!
I was a fan of Jessica Park since I’ve read “Flat-Out Love” and I started this book knowing that I would probably like it. But this was a surprise. It was a completely different story than what I was expecting and I didn’t liked it… I pretty much loved it! ;)
Blythe is broken by her parent’s death. She only has her brother left but their relationship is strained. She bears fears, guilt and sadness that no one understands. She is lonely because she can’t even be herself long enough to make friends.
She feels like she’s drowning in her own dark past.
On the day she meets Chris she slowly starts to breathe again. Their relation helps her feeling alive again. She almost dares being happy again.
But as she starts to surface, she realizes that Chris is the one drowning this time.
And he is so broken that he may never surface again.
But she knows she won’t give up on him. Like he helped get her head above water, she will do the same for him.
Or drown with him, trying.
Besides the romance one of the things I loved more about this book was Chris brothers. They are all broken but they are tight and support the others no matter what. And the way they welcomed Blythe like she was their own sister was adorable to see.
Basically a brilliant story, with a perfect writing style and perfectly imperfect characters.
If you like books with romance, angst and some steam… you really need to read this book. :)
