What more could you want form a book? A virgin rocker who comes to the aid of a damsel in distress and with one glance the attraction between them is off the charts. Austin has the money get obtain anything he could ever want except for the freedom to choose his own path. Liz has struggled to to support both her and her mother who can't even take care of herself. She has fought to attain her goals to become a nurse while never giving up her dream to also make it as a singer. The two meet at a competition quickly realizing that they come form different worlds, but it doesn't matter to them.
This was a wild ride as Austin and Liz struggle to build a life where their differences do not matter if they can overcome the people who are determined to keep them apart. I found it fascinating that it was Austin's mother who opposed Liz while his father only wanted his happiness. There are still too many issues yet unresolved and I for one can't wait to read Adoration the next book in the Alterity series.
It was the cover that sold me, and reading the blurb I expected music to be the center of it all. I expected our main characters to tour together and being unable to resist each other due to their sizzling chemistry, until one night it happens and returning home they have to face the consequences.
This is not what happens. Nothing, what the cover suggests, does actually happen.
I had really difficulties at first. The writing style, was beautifully, poetic and sophisticated it is, didn't feel right for the topic.
Right at the beginning we take a deep dive into the Ocean of Cheesiness, when both characters breath is taken away by each other.
For me personally the writing style was preventing me from getting a feel for the story and a feel for the characters. I must admit that my false expectations of the story influenced my perception in a way that I was biased. I'm not sure if I can really rate this book correctly.
This book opened my eyes to what is the so called "New Adult" genre. It's sweet, innocent, starry-eyed and lacks drama. Don't take me wrong, I despise overdramatic plots, but despite the difference your their upcoming, there is no real drama. The inner conflicts of both Austin and Liz weren't that extreme either. So more or less, nothing really happened and I wasn't sure if they were together or not.
I won't go into detail because I don't want to spoil the story.
What I need to say is that there were some things feeling like contingency problems. Persons and happenings that were expressed to be generally important to our MCs, weren't mentioned until a specific scenes were they came in handy.
Despite all I, Ashlynne Laynne managet to create an genuine interest for her two characters and after the bumpy start I never thought of DNF this book, I needed to know how everything would enfold and eventually come to an satisfying solution.
Sadly, just when it was about to become interesting, the book ended.
As for the sexual scenes. I'd say they were perfectly executed for a teen audience, however it's the writing style that addresses an older audience. Hence, I guess, New Adult.
Now, having reached the end of my review, I still am not sure how to rate this book. I'm definitely not a part of the target audience and therefore just simply couldn't enjoy it that much.
As much as I want to give this book more stars, I have to settle for 3. It's the misleading cover, and the fact that I wasn't aware that this was not a standalone, that prevents me from giving it 3.5 and round it up to four.
I really enjoyed this book. If you have a thing for bad boys and girls in messed up situation similar to your own, this is a must read for you.
The Scottish twist to this story is just amazing. Ads that foreign mysterious accent thing to the allure of Austins character. Not that his character needs any extra allure. He is an extremely sexy yummy character.
So very well written is each character.
Liz is just struggling to make her hopes and dreams come true as her life has always spiraled out of control.
I couldn't put this book down it was absolutely addictive.
Liz wakes up after fainting to the most beautiful guy she has ever seen! There is an instant connection that she has never felt with anyone!
The two begin a whirlwind romance, full of unaccepting parents, ex girlfriends, the challenge of chastity, and so much more.
If you want a story that will make you swoon, and have to keep reading until the very ebd this is for you!
