There were no frills or pretending with this story. The characters felt real as they struggled with everyday problems.
Mostly, what I loved about this story was that the female was no damsel in distress. She held her own and stood her ground which was refreshing.
There were some unexpected twists and turns that I really appreciated. Hats off to the author for taking us along on this journey.
I recommend this book if you love strong, independent women, romance, and an alpha male who is not overbearing. This story has heart and reminds us that second chances do exist.
Kai and Lily make a cute couple. It was refreshing to read about two available people who find each other and get to know each other without any OW/OM drama. I appreciated that Lily had a healthy sense of skepticism and some street smarts when it came to being a single girl living alone in the beginning. It’s always nice to see a heroine exhibit qualities that are useful in the real world. While Kai lying to her and misleading her about what he did to make money was wrong, he was a sympathetic character who was a good guy at heart, just a little lost and actually quite vulnerable. I adored how well he treated Lily; he was definitely someone to root for.
Told via Kai and Lily’s alternating first person point of view, this is a shorter read so there were some places I craved more and few items in the resolution I would have liked to see expanded on. But all in all, it’s a sweet, engaging, standalone story of two single young people who are finding their way in life.
How I discovered this book: It was submitted to Rosie Amber's Review Team, of which I am a member. Kai is a 'new adult' romance... not exactly my genre, but the blurb appealed to me.
This story is nicely written, flows well and is very readable; I like the author's writing style. The book starts with Lily, who works in a supermarket, discovering that her wages have not been paid into her bank. The calamity is well written, drawing the reader into Lily's world straight away, though I had an issue with this part: although it would leave her with no food for four days, she rejects the offer of a loan from her manager and chooses to spend her last seventy pounds on paying her electricity bill. Who can go four whole days with no food?
We then meet Kai, dope dealer with a heart of gold, who is very appealing; I can see that he's a great hero for a book aimed at a young adult age group. Lily then meets her neighbour, Jackie, who is smoking a joint; it's medicinal, for her MS. I had another slight issue with this, too. Lily automatically assumes that Jackie is a 'drug addict', because she's smoking weed. I would have thought that, as she has been an art student, she'd have a slightly more worldly attitude towards such things, unless art students have become a lot more clean living since my day!
I thought some of the issues raised were well done, such as Jackie's son refusing to go to school, and I liked Kai's bond with his mother and how he wanted to do whatever it took to make a better life for them. The private, inner conflicts faced by Kai and Lily were nicely written, though I did wish the two characters' 'voices' had been more clearly defined; they both used the same speech patterns and language, had the same tempo and mood. The book was not as edgy as I expected from the blurb, but I expect that is because it is written within the confines of that which is suitable for the target market, and who, I imagine, will like it very much.
