Violet is absolutely one of my favorite of Ms. Reed's characters now. She experienced a life-altering event, but didn't allow it to warp her. Violet's caring, kind, compassionate, and she's still putting herself out there (as much as an introvert can). I loved how she strengthens and grows in this book, especially how natural I felt the character development flowed. She was able to handle what life threw at her, even when she doubted herself, and she had the support of her friends, including the three guys whose friendship eventually morphs into more.
Jude, Lincoln, and Tobias were amazing and incredible for Violet. They were each the right amount of supportive and protective in each of their own ways. Not only did Violet grow in this book, but each of the guys did as well, individually and within their friendship. I enjoyed that the guys stood out from each other, even with their individual contributions to their BioGuy messages. The friendship between the guys and then their relationships with Violet all felt natural.
All the individual threads of Extra Credit together formed a wonderful stand-alone that I know I'll re-read in the future.
I know it’s a standalone but I would do anything to get to read more about them.
The story of GildedGirl and BioGuy is an imaginative, modern-day RH retelling of Rapunzel. I love the premise. The anonymity of screen personas allowed Violet so much more freedom to be the person she was working to be. Without this beginning there never would have been a chance for these characters to become family. Violet's character being an introvert was only a minor obstacle compared to the damage her mother had inflicted on her confidence. She would have never been able to allow herself to be seen in a way needed to start down the road to relationships. Jude, Lincoln and Tobias would have never gotten past her walls of insecurity. The guys all pretending to be one person made them work as a team, see each other with new eyes, and be more considerate of one another. What started out as an innocent deception worked beautifully to solidify a brotherhood and find love. My favorite line of the book, "If we were her strength, she was our heart" says it best.
Beyond the relationships, this story was psychologically compelling. Violet's parents all failed. Each one. The damage inflicted on her due to mental instability, weakness, fear, and good intentions was overwhelming and almost overpowering. Without Jude, Lincoln, and Tobias, along with Thea and her guys, and even Brodie Violet would have been lost to the world. She reminded me of her namesake. Violets are beautiful, yet fragile. Their blossoms can be a beautiful blanket or they can be easily trampled. Being along with Violet as she allowed herself to be who she wanted, take what she needed to get her HEA was enchanting.
