When you first fall in love, it’s like being in a fog. You love everything about that person, their quirks, and flaws and all but after the initial honeymoon period is over the haze clears and the other shoe drops. The moment you realize that all of the things you loved so much about this person that make them so uniquely special are also sometimes the things that get on your last nerve and make you want to choke them.
Kyle and Jade are no different. Their story is a case of opposites attract where Jade is strategic Ms. To Do List and Kyle is spontaneous Mr. Go with the Flow. Rae Lamar shows how although having differing personalities, Kyle and Jade’s love for one another allows them even through conflict to complement each other. This story is a testament to love being a journey opposed to a destination. Blur demonstrates the effort or lack thereof at times for Kyle and Jade to maintain it despite their differences and attempts to find clarity as a couple.
Lamar has a talent for incorporating humor to talk about real issues. One of my favorite characters in the story was Rachel. We all need a friend like her to call you on your BS when you’re losing your way. I found myself wanting to tell Jade “Gitdafuckouttahere!!!” on several occasions. True to life when you are the one in the situation, it’s hard to see how crazy you are acting but your friends and those around you can see things clearly. Rachel was a true sister friend. She gave it to Jade straight no chaser and had me laughing all the way through the book.
Overall, I give Blur 4.5 stars. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because although I liked the ending and thought it was appropriate there was a part of me that wanted Kyle to work a little harder. In my opinion, both he and Jade had things they needed to work on separately to have a successful relationship together. It wasn’t one-sided and saying what you will or won’t do in the future doesn’t really mean much. Actions speak louder than words. I also wanted to know more about Kyle’s upbringing and relationship with his family as well.
I would recommend Blur to anyone wanting to read a funny and heart-warming story about genuine love between friends who become lovers. This is the third book I’ve read by this author and her writing keeps getting better. After reading Blur, the one thing clear to me is Rae Lamar is easily turning into one of my favorite authors to read.
This book contains part 1and 2. Part 1 was released with a combination of three other authors of the BMHSS project earlier in 2017. Part 1 of Blur was scrumptious.
This is a review of Part 2 of Blur.
Part 2 is a story about what happens when love is rushed, but it's definitely love.
I fell in love with Kyle and Jade from the very start. Lamar has done a great job of fleshing these characters out and part 2, I'd say is just a notch above part 1.
I've been following Lamar since the release of her Aris series and reading Blur just affirms to me that Lamar is evolving as a writer. Just in the short space of time between parts one and two, she delivered more than expected. These characters lived in my head and can I be real? Kyle frustrated me to no end and made me want to do bad things to him. But isn't that what it's all about? Reading should make you feel something.
Not only do the main characters deliver a poignant presence, but her side characters are never to be overlooked. Rachel was a hoot and a pleasure to have along for the ride.
I couldn't believe it when I made it to the end and could not swipe any longer. I was enjoying this story so much I didn't want it to end.
If you want a well rounded story that will give you the truth about rushing into love and a serious romantic relationship with a good friend, Blur delivers.
I am waiting to see what else Rae Lamar has up her sleeve to capture my picky attention. Salute.
