Wow! It has been a LONG time since a book has literally kept me up ALL NIGHT! The writing is perfect… poetic. The story is different. It is relatable. It is real. Innocents took me back to my own adolescence. And while my story, of course is different from Dusty and Bliss’s. We can all relate to young love. How all-consuming it is. How stupid love can make you.

Innocents spans years. Years of secret moments… tender loving moments and heart breaking, soul crushing ones as well. I felt like that young girl crazy in love with the unattainable boy. Secrets, lies, betrayals… but you just keep coming back for more… because those stolen moments are worth all of the pain. After all… the heart wants what the heart wants.

That hot-headed, troubled boy and baby princess girl have wormed their way into my heart and I cannot wait to see where life takes them in Delinquents. There is so much that I want to say but I can’t find the words and I really don’t want to give their story away. I didn’t just read Innocents. I lived it. I experienced it and those are the special books. I have a feeling the Indie world is going to be blown away, just as I was when this book goes live. I will be stalking The Elizabeths for the follow-ups release in October!

Where to start? This is one of those books that can bring out only two emotions about it: Love it or hate it! I have to say I felt both, but I will lean more on the hate side. Regardless, if any book can bring any emotion to the reader, it must be a good book, right? Well, it depends...Does the book inspire, disgust? Does it make you think, feel and contemplate? All of these are a yes in this one!

I've read some reviews on Goodreads and that site seems to have more of the people that sort of hated it. I will explain why I am joining that group. Which means I will mention some SPOILERS so stop here if you don't want to hear more...

This books sort of reads like a poem sometimes...That's OK, but it takes away from real character development because of lack of real dialogue. The story revolves around a bunch of very young kids who seem to live a life that seems unreal. Most of the thought process and dialogue belongs to much older teens than the 13 - 17 years old on here.

My biggest issues: Dusty (one of his many names) and his sister live with parents that allow them to curse, drink and take drugs in their own house, under their own noses. And their father is a lawyer! Seriously? Whatever! Bliss (one of her many names) lives with supposedly strict parents (father a judge), yet those parents let her sleep at Dusty & sister's house more than their own house! Again, seriously?

Dusty is a drug addict, alcoholic and man whore! Bliss is a very young, naive girl that is being manipulated by this jerk into thinking he only loves her while he is perpetually stoned & drunk; and kind of has a booty on the side who is more his type than Bliss will ever be!

What disturbs me the most is the age of these kids...

My heart is so full right now.

You know when you read a classic book such as Wuthering Heights, or Romeo and Juliet, and you have a sense of contentment, fulfillment, and satisfaction, right after you've finished reading it?

Innocents is just like that and so much MORE.

This is not your average book.

This is not your average coming-of-age story.

This is a story about growing up, sneaking for love, loving passionately, heart-overruling-mind-and-common-sense, and love being a trader.

This story is about Thomas and Leighlee. Or, as some of us know them, as Dusty and Bliss.

Who knew starting your first day of school, while eating a banana popsicle, would change your entire life?

Bliss didn’t.

And yet that is exactly what happened.

Best friends enter your life and so do newly-appointed brothers.

Bliss and her best friend, Becka are inseparable. Sometimes Rebecka’s brother, Thomas, was around, sometimes not. But the girls never had to worry, because Dusty and his boys always had their back.

After all, little sisters are untouchable.

Becka and Bliss have a sleepover, and on one fateful night, Bliss couldn’t fall asleep; she was restless.

Call it fate, destiny, a higher power, or whatever you believe in, but Dusty and Bliss are soul mates. They are meant to be together. Should they be together? That is up to you, the reader, to decide.

But, I digress.

Now, on the way to the bathroom to wash her face, Bliss sees Dusty’s television is on and asks him if she can watch TV with him.

Was that the end of the beginning? Or the beginning of the end?

Finding out for yourself is the sweetest reward.

"I love your heart," he tells me, making it beat. "And your heart loves me."

I was aware of Dusty as a piece of fan fiction work but I had never read it therefore I was interested in reading Innocents in all its polished glory. From the synopsis, I had assumed it was a New Adult novel like all the others, I hadn’t heard much about the book so I had that in mind. So imagine my surprise when the book starts with Leighlee Bliss McCloy as a young eleven year old, I thought perhaps it was a little bit of setting the scene and there would be an imminent time jump to the present day. But in actual fact the story focused on Bliss and Dusty’s childhood from 11-15 and 13-17 years old respectively.

Bliss has moved to a new neighboured and the normal worries of a small child is making friends. She needn’t have worried the moment Rebecka Castor literally ran into her. From then on Bliss’ eyes were opened. Going from a strict household and being the only child to spending time at Becka’s house were the rules are lax and Thomas “Dusty” Castor is the hot older brother makes everything more appealing to Bliss. Bliss is in for a childhood full of fun, secrets and many firsts.

To be honest I struggled with the age range, I really did. I know teens are getting up to good younger and younger. I know this is a fact, would I choose to read about it? Probably not. I couldn’t even be frustrated with Bliss when she forgave Dusty time and time again. She was practically a baby, she knew no better.

I am really torn with my feelings on this book. It took me a while to appreciate the writing, it was over half way when it really kicked in for me and I loved the prose and the phrasing used.
