Bravo Shannon bravo! First off, thank you so much for my copy. The book is gorgeous and I love that it is signed to me. Thank you again!!
Okay this cover, awesome right? It catches your eye like all the great covers do. And the title. Aww. At first I was thinking...um...sex...but nope. The title is perfect and you find out the meaning towards the end of the book.
Now the review itself. I loved this book! I wish that I didn't have to work so that I could have just read it and done nothing else. Let me tell you about Shannon McCrimmon though first. She wrote a series before this book, The Summer I Learned to Dive and The Year I Almost Drowed, both with are amazing. Shannon knows romance and tragedy and she manages to write exact novels about it. Well now continuing with Kiss Me Hard Before You Go. Amazing. The best way to describe this book. I was captivated from page one and I stayed interested throughout the novel. I wanted to know how this farm girl and carny's story ended. Evie, a farm girl in a small community lives with her dad and cares for cows. One day she wants to leave the farm. Every year they have a carnival come to town and set up on their land in order to bring in extra cash. Cue Finch. Finch was born into carnival life and can't wait to get out of it. During the summer of 1978 Finch and Evie finally discover each other. On the way they experience life, loss, and romance.
This book was not what I was expecting...it was better! I have loved Shannon's other books but man this one is more than amazing. It had you laughing, crying, aww-ing, and so much more. My only thing is I wish there would be a sequel. I want more Evie, Finch, Katie, Cooper, Doris, Mouse, and Friedrich. Oh yes there are more characters that you will fall in love with. See, now go out and buy this awesome book!
