Trey’s nickname for Pia is demeaning and not one that elicits a sense of sweet love. Both Pia and Trey acted like young teenagers and not ‘adultish’ a great part of the time. The flow is fast in places and the ending is somewhat dark, but you aren’t left with a cliff hanger.
The weird. Trey has an unusual nickname for Pia that really irritated me and he used it frequently. He called her Pee Aitch. I am not British and so maybe that word actually means something other than a nickname and I am just not getting it. However, ever time he said it the words peeing$ bit@ch came to mind. So not romantic. Also there were too many "erms" throughout the story. It was like reading a lot of "hms" or "ahhs".
Pia and Trey at times acted immature. Until I read their ages, I thought they were much younger, like high schools as opposed to college age.
I did not like the very abrupt ending. It was a HFN. She returns to him for a visit and then, the end. Also I did not like that even at the end there was a lot of depressing things that Trey was dealing with and the book ended on a sad note. There is no indication that their story continues in another book and if there is, I will not read it. I probably would find it too sad.
This was a quick, enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys graphic romance novels.
I gave it four stars because I believe the author could have gone into more depth with each character's role and how they were dealing with their issues. I also felt the story would have been better told without so many graphic sexual scenes.
The premise of this story is compelling. Meeting a surprise love while away on a family vacation is fraught with potential complications. And Abbott doesn’t disappoint—there are several revealed throughout. This story is driven by the two main characters, Trey and Pia.
I’m used to reading about adults rather than teens, so it was hard to suspend my preconceived notions about how these characters should behave. They both had moments of immaturity that I struggled with, but those moments are probably age-appropriate. I never really related to Pia. She doesn’t have much of a character arc. She does become slightly more trusting, but she doesn’t really change. Trey, however, captivated me. His family life would make a novel in and of itself. He really carried the story for me. My heart breaks for him. The Pia-centric portions slowed down for me, but the Trey parts really moved. He grabbed me from the very beginning and didn’t let go.
If you enjoy YA romances, I recommend this story. Trey alone carries the novel—he’s the quintessential bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold girls love to crush over, and seeing his journey through to the end is satisfying.
