“Give us a chance, Vivian. Run to me.”
So far we have A.D.O.R.E.D this series! The dialogue, banter, romance, angst, passion, emotion and drama left us breathless not to mention our brand new…’be still our beating hearts’… book boyfriend left us swooooning! Seriously, Keaton Thorne is ‘the best!’. Yes, we’re ‘air quoting’ Keaton, so get over it buddy!
“It’s just a story, V. We all have a story.”
We received an email from a reader who told us to drop everything and read this book! She thought it was right up our ally and she was right! We ran the gauntlet of emotions; we laughed out loud, we welled up, did some serious swooning over Keaton, met a new author whose work we’re giddy over, and we loved every minute!
‘I thought of the collection of New Adult books that were lined up on my Kindle, wondering if his pulse was thundering and his dick was twitching.’
Kimberly Stedronsky told her story with a perfect balance of realism, passion, drama and humour which had us feverishly turning the pages. The expressive way in which she delivered the humour in this story ensured we read it with a huge smile on our faces as we feverishly devoured every word!
“You have too much time of your hands.”
“I have too much Vivian on my hands.”
The prologue had a sudden impact, which drew us into the story, leaving us pondering how Vivan had arrived at that point in her life. Just what had transpired up to and after that point? Well, Kimberly Stedronsky deliciously drip fed us tiny morsels of her story to keep us tantalisingly teased!
Keaton Thorne! Wow!!! WE. ARE. IN. LOVE with this flawed and bloody gorgeous man!! He was the complete book boyfriend. Good looking, sexy, strong, smart, charismatic, possessing a wonderful sarcastic wit and an enigmatic presence. Yep, he’s the stuff book boyfriends are made of and we couldn’t get enough of him. We think we fell more and more in love with him as the story progressed. He could definitely cause a city to heat and you really do need to meet this guy any which way you can.
“But you’re everything. You’re everything that I used to pretend existed out there for me., somewhere. You’re the beautiful girl who I would dream about when I’d lie awake at night, the one who’d make me laugh, p**s me off, and impress me, all at the same ****ing time. ‘
Normally we’re not fans of bringing real life into our books but this author handled it in such a way that it enhanced the story. The movie and book references were so much fun…well, everything was. As you can tell, we really did love it.
We initially adored Vivian and found ourselves empathising with her. Whilst we may have become exasperated by some of her actions and reasoning, we felt as though we understood her. It was who she was and how she handled difficult situations. She was a little reckless and a lot impetuous, but her heart was in the right place. By book two it was a different story and we wanted to throttle her. Her thought process, her flip flopping drove us to the brink and she somehow even managed to bring Keaton down which upset us deeply. Thankfully, Kimberly Stedronsky pulled it back and had us once again connecting with Vivian. It was a close call, the angst was aplenty, and we were walking a tightrope of going off this character completely but luckily that wasn’t the case.
Told in a dual POV between Keaton and Vivian, it was a delight to get an insight into their inner thoughts which were hilarious. Their banter was priceless. We were reciting many classic lines whilst discussing the books after finishing. In fact, we’re still giggling and swooning!
‘She was gorgeous. Stunning. She took my breath away and gave me air to breathe.’
It would be a true crime not to pick up this series. It’s fun, flirty, angsty, emotional and addictive and you get to meet the delectable Mr Keaton Thorne!!! Yummy!!
‘He needed me. I needed him. Right? Isn’t this the way it goes? Isn’t this our blockbuster? I needed him to unbreak my heart, and he needed me to save him.’
For a fistful of dollars you can pick up and fall in love with Below Unforgiven, or for a few dollars more, you can grab the series! Either way, you need to get a hold of these books any which way you can because it would be a true crime to pass these up.
‘Everyone in town introduced themselves by name and relations. Apparently, I was no exception. Maybe it was a precautionary measure to thwart inbreeding.’
A real winner! The good…there was LOTS of that! The bad…well, there wasn’t really any bad, except wanting to throw our Kindles once or twice…..and the ugly…..hmmm there wasn’t any of that either, but we had to get that Clint Eastwood title in here somewhere. An absolute recommend from us!!! We’re still on book cloud nine from this one! Enjoy but remember…Keaton is ours!!!
On a side note, we’ve been asked if it’s worth reading the novella or delving straight into books one and two – we say – absolutely read the novella. It reaches further into the characters and gives you a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the relationships. It really is an added bonus to the series we wouldn’t have missed!
“Since that didn’t sound so bad to me, I agreed with her . . . “
Kimberly F*@%ing Stedronsky does it to me EVERY single time. She’s writes these wonderful stories that scoop me up and hold me so tightly that I don’t even realize the story is finished and then I’m left alone and empty. This book's a wonderful prequel to Below Unforgiven, explaining in more detail Vivian and Keaton’s lives up until they meet. Some parts of this book brought tears to my eyes and I hate to cry, really I do! But Kimberly is such an artist, weaving beautiful tales with her words that I must forgive her for the emotions she evokes in me. Keaton is a troubled man who survived hell as a child and found himself right back there as an adult. He’s looking for romantic love. Vivian is young and has been through hell herself over the past year. She’s looking for herself and a way to heal. I give this book 25 stars, but since there is no such rating I will have to settle for 5 stars. I am on the edge of my seat in anticipation for the arrival of Before A Perfect World. Thank you Ms. Stedronsky for the beautiful world you’ve created for me to get lost in.
