I love Carlisle's journey of finding herself, and the geeky and quirky Matteo definitely helped in making the journey fun to read. I loved the importance placed in Carlisle's self growth in this story. It felt real and gave more depth to the book. I also loved how Miles interspersed Matteo's "scientific observations" in between chapters. It's a unique way of adding the guy's perspective into the story. This is definitely a unique and fun book to read, specially if you have a special place in your heart for geeks.
1. There is no shortage in the number of alpha male characters in romance books, but we definitely need more Type B males like the adorable Matteo Villegas. This geek of a scientist is a breath of fresh air. He's definitely the type of guy I would be smitten with in real life - smart and adventurous. I like my guys a little quirky (mabuhay ang mga awkward!), but is not afraid of roller coasters. I also loved how determined and persistent he was to pursue Carlisle Also, don't we all wish to have someone who is attentive enough to remember the things we casually mention we like? Haaay.
2. Like the true academic that he was, Matteo documented the progress of his pursuit of Carlisle. These journal entries in between some of the chapters was an effective way of letting the readers in on what goes through Matteo's mind.
3. I really like it when I see authors put in some valuable trivia or research in their works. Sure, I read fiction works, but I'd love it more if I get something out of it aside from mere entertainment. The theory on UP Diliman's Sunken Garden really fascinated me.
4. Character development for Carlisle, the MC, was also good. We see her transition from being aloof to being more open towards the end of the story.
5. I also liked how both Matteo and Carlisle's close-knit relationships with their respective siblings.
I also loved the geology puns so much, so I'm sorry I'm just writing this review now. I know that was my fault. (hehehe)
6. These moments:
"Don't worry, the possibility of falling off is very low. And besides... I'm not going to let you fall." He held out his hand almost tentatively, adding a shy grin. "I'm told I've got pretty steady hands."
“Finding x may be as easy as encircling it and pointing out to it when written on paper, but actually figuring out what it was, entailed a lot more than that. Perfection was an illusion; it involved a lot of work, a generous helping of patience, and a huge amount of dedication.”
I'd recommend this book to anyone who believes in love even after being jaded, and to those who find geeky characters swoon-worthy.
Awesomely fun book. I can't wait to see what Ms. Tan comes up with next.
