So, it's Teaser Tuesday again--hosted by Should Be Reading. To play along all you have to do is:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure
that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t
want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants
can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This time, she wouldn't walk away. Wrapping my arms around her, I walked her backwards into the brick. "Tell me you chose me, Echo."
So, I decided that, when I do Teaser Tuesday, if I've finished the book I'm also going to do a small review.
On the downside, I thought the writing was a little over-the-top sometimes. Noah kept calling Echo things like his siren and his nymph. I have a teenage so,n so I spend a lot of time around teenage guys. I can't really picture any of them thinking those words with a straight face. haha. And Noah was supposed to be super tough and jaded--which really made that part a stretch for me. I also felt the love story developed much too quickly.
On the positive side, the book tackled some tough issues and didn't shy away from portraying realistic teenage problems/behavior. I loved the emphasis on family bonds. I have to admit that I was in tears more than once, especially during the parts with Noah and his little brothers. I'd give this three 1/2 stars out of five. It was definitely a fun, emotional read with a ton of romance.
