The one person I really felt bad for was Jasmine. She's already had a rough enough life, she didn't need to be used by another man. Yes, he was honest with her about his feelings from the beginning, but then realizing it or not.... he started to give her false hope that he'd one day, maybe he could actually fall in love with her, too.. And things were going so well between them, when he suddenly shows up and just ends things with her? I am so glad she didn't beg and grovel for him to stay with her, so I give her props for that, anyway.
I did like the closeness between the families, but most of the kids need to learn to grow up! If I had talked to my parents the way some of these kids did, I wouldn't have a tooth left in my head.
The angst and drama was a bit much for me, and I usually love that sort of thing. All the back and forth, being immature, making crazy decisions, using people to get over someone else-ugh!
How do you be best friends with someone for years and not really "see" them?! Not only that, this girl has had her friends telling her over and over and OVER (yes, repeatedly!!) how much her best friend wanted her, and she's just like "wah, wah, wah, no he doesn't." It was almost like she thought she was better off being with cheating boyfriends rather than consider the possibility that her kind, loyal, and gorgeous best friend could ever look at her as any more than a friend.
But when he finally decides to move on and be with someone else, lo and behold, (yep, you guessed it) now she wants him. The rest of the book is her moping and pouting about his relationship with the other girl. The other friends are trying to convince these two they belong together.
I understand this is college. I don't expect people this age to have all the answers. I went to college, too, and I know what it's like. It's definitely a learning experience--I will give you that. But the the things these kids did, thought, said--crazy!
I admit, part of me is a little tempted to read the rest of this series to see if these two stay together, and really "get it together" as adults.
However, it looks like there are a "kazillion" books in the series. I don't think my heart (or my wallet!) can take any more of this kind of drama.
Cayson, a brilliant biochemistry pre-med student is in love with Skye and has been for year but the problem is they are best friends and she thinks of him as a brother. It is a slow painful story with Cayson wanting Skye and Skye being unawares. The plot was not one of my favorites; however it had no major problems other then appealing to a younger group of readers than a great-grandmother. I wouldn't want to go back to my college days and all the crazy things that happened and problems finding a stable boyfriend; on the other hand college was full of parties and good times too. All I Want is You reflected a typical college group of young people.
I sometimes struggle with new adult stories, and this is one of my struggles. I am at the age that an NA book has to have a good solid story that moves at a decent pace to keep my attention. All I Want Is You seems too superficial to me.
I can handle young people making bad decisions when they are young. I can't stand the constant repetition and then restating the same thing over and over. It rubs me wrong when these young people have loving parents and the kids "Eww" so much. It is phony and unbelievable. I get if they are embarrassed by the affection, but they live with the mutual love their entire life.
One of my major pet peeves is too much push-pull when trying to establish a relationship. It makes me crazy and slows the story. All I Want Is You has way too much push-pull for me. Cayson is a good guy, and Skye is a good female character. There is a lot of potential. However, they don't act like the near-geniuses that they supposedly are.
In my opinion, the story will be more appealing for someone under thirty. A younger person can look past some of the crazy childishness.
