I want you for myself
I want you and nothing else girl ...
I’ve got nothing to lose
I want you and if I can’t have you
Then no one will" – I want you by Nick Jonas
There's always one sign when you’ve read a great book and that's the feeling of being utterly bereft, as though you just don't know what to do with yourself. That's what I'm feeling at this exact moment.
I don't know what to do with myself.
I feel as if I'm a snowflake that’s been hurtled in a blizzard or a heavy rain drop that’s been pelted from the sky during a thunderstorm. I’ve fallen, hit the ground, and now I'm sitting here and I feel depleted, emotionally captured, but at the same time exceptionally sad. I should have prolonged my reading experience. I should have slowed my pacing so I could savor it, so I could linger in their world a little longer. But how? How could I when I was living in that story. When that story claimed a part of my heart with each word, each page. I couldn’t…
I was taken, so completely and totally consumed.
That epilogue UNDID me! It UNDID ME.
I'm unhinged. I'm raw.
This book was an experience. It was so REAL. I went into it knowing nothing about the plot. I skimmed the blurb and GOD! GOD! GOD! I didn't know... I did not know what I was getting. I didn't know that I was going to break and then be made whole, only to mourn these characters at the end because I fell so completely in love with them.
You never get that first read back. NEVER. That initial burst of feeling is a onetime thing. I am bereft. I wasn’t prepared for it to end. I almost want to message the author and demand more. But what else can she give me? Nothing. She gave me EVERYTHING in that book and yet... here I am.
I crave, I yearn, I need, and I want more of these characters.
They're ALIVE in me. Their story feels tangible. It's so well written and the feels... they were gut punching. The yearning these characters carried for each felt otherworldly. The plot twists and vicious turns were wrought with torturous pain.
At times my heart clenched and unclenched at an alarming speed, my tummy felt knotted with anxiety, my bones ached from Charlotte and Nate's longing. I felt their distress in a visceral way. It consumed me. I couldn't function. Taking a breath hurt. I needed to finish though. I felt like I was toeing the edge of a meltdown.
My God, if I'm honest I did meltdown. Several times.
I felt it ALL.
I'm not sure what else to say... This book, this books an EXPERIENCE. A BRILLIANT, PAINFUL, PERILOUS, GLORIOUS, HAPPY, BREATHTAKING EXPERIENCE. And I urge you to read it. It's a complete story that will unravel and put you back together.
I love deep. I am an emotional soul. When I feel, I feel in the marrow of my bones, in the darkest corners of my soul. This story, it's unforgettable. A story that will stay with me.
I loved it.
God, I wish I could be less redundant, more eloquent, but I don't know how else to express myself except to say that I FELT EVERY WORD this author wrote. EVERY SINGLE WORD.
This is a beautiful story of love lost and gained, of pain and heartache, of life! Jen throws some of the hardest things life can possibly deal us into this story and does it with such authority and abandon that you can't help but feel like this is the way it was meant to be. Even though it hurts- this is how love HAS to manifest itself.
I cannot tell you enough how important it is that you buy this book!
The introduction of the characters and their emotionally driven love story was perfectly done to the tee. All books should start exactly like this. Where you fall in love with the hero and the heroine from the get go and become fully invested in their story. I LOVED, LOVED both Charlotte and Nate. Everything about them just screamed TRUE LOVE! I was emotional even during the sweetest moments they shared because the author so genuinely portrayed young love so well. It brought me back to my first love- the vulnerability and the intensity that comes along with all first love affairs. What was so beautiful about this story for me were their early years; the pivotal points in their lives of both self-discovery and discovering the true meaning behind what love is. Because both families were so interconnected with one another that Nate and Charlotte were such BIG pieces of each other’s lives.
Charlotte’s character was the epitome of a sweet but strong girl. With a mind of her own, I love that she never allowed herself to be affected by the nonsensical gossip that infiltrates the high school halls so much. She believed in her love for Nate and my God does she stick by him. I loved that. I admired that she stuck to her guns never letting pride get in the way of love. This all just connected so well with the health hardships that she endures throughout this book. Living her life driven by love, I’d say that her character could teach so many of us so much.
Where Charlotte remained constant, Nate’s character had a bit of a habit veering off course. Having been raised in an affluent home, Nate being a dominant, all-male force, felt life’s pressures. He felt that he had to succeed on his own without solely depending on his parents dime. This will ultimately drive him to making the biggest and game changing decision of not only his life but all of his loved ones as well—Charlotte the most. What I so obsessively LOVED about Nate was how FAITHFUL he was to Charlotte and how he ADORED her and RESPECTED her. On top of all of this, his virility and his oh so dirty, dirty mouth; though his strength goes far beyond the physical and he proves that time and time again throughout the book.
The Charlotte Chronicles: The Jackson Boys was way on its way to a full-fledged 5-star review but what struck a nerve was the lack of a substantial peak or climax in the plot. I felt that what the author meant for the climax to be came and went extremely too fast for my taste. Where my heart caught in my chest then was too quickly alleviated. I wish that it came a bit earlier on into the book to hold me steadfast and to wring my literary masochistic heart dry. Given this low, I am still so impressed at how much Nate’s and Charlotte’s love story made my hopeless romantic self, dance around in happy circles. I recommend this book to fellow hopeless romantics who love second chances with a whole lot of sexy happening across many of the pages in this amazing read.
I am in love with this book. 😍
