Along with that, I wasn't quite sold on the way that Emma and Evan met. I mean, Emma was so unruffled by coming face to face with Mr. Sexy Rock God that I actually thought that they already knew each other. Nope. Turns out that she just happens to be the coolest of all cucumbers. And good for her, because I would have lost my shiznit if found in the same situation, much like the girl at the coffee shop. But, whatever. I decided to let it slide and continue on my merry way. And boy am I glad that I did, because about a third of the way through the book the most extraordinary thing happened: I. Fell. In. Love.
I fell in love with Emma and Evan's story: How their relationship blossomed slowly, starting out as friendship and phone calls before becoming something deeper; how I could actually feel the connection between them growing stronger; how they lifted each other up and brought out the best in one another.
I fell in love with how much I could relate to Emma. I may not have ever been in the same situation that she had been, but I know what it's like to have something that was said to you haunt you, taunt you, and kill your confidence. Watching her battle her demons and struggle with putting them in their place so that she could find herself again was very real to me. Emma was very real to me.
I fell in love with Evan. How could I not? He's a Rock Star that doesn't act like a Rock Star. It was refreshing to have our Super Star Leading Man be so down to Earth. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love me some Bad Boy Rocker, but it was nice to have Evan be so, well, nice. And normal. And supportive. And affectionate. And understanding. And protective. And sweet. And hot. And Romantic. And patient. And. . .you get the picture. I happened to really enjoy the fact that while he was a big time celebrity, he managed to keep himself away from the limelight; you know, one of those people who like to keep their private life private. It was nice (there's that word again).
Another thing that I loved about this book was that it was pretty mild in the angst department. There was just enough of the stuff to create that tension in your belly that keeps you flipping through the pages to make sure that things turn out the way that you think that they ought to, and not a smidgen more. Which was, dare I say it, also nice.
And I have to say, there were really only two things that bothered me about this book. Well, other than the whole first encounter thing.
ONE: at one point Evan references his band and says that inviting them into a secluded area with Emma would not be a great idea, because then there would be one girl alone with five, uh, frustrated guys. Later, only two are mentioned by name. Add them to Evan and you only have three band members. Who are the other two guys? Did I miss them?
TWO: the spattering of errors that continued throughout the book. Like I said earlier, it wasn't so bad that I felt like my head was going to explode, but there were enough mistakes for me to stand up and take notice. For instance, there was a their/they're mix up in the last half of the book that I had a hard time ignoring. Normally this sort of thing would earn a lower rating, and if I'm being totally honest I originally thought this was going to end up being a 3 Star book, but the characters and their story sucked me in and made me forget (or at the very least, overlook) these flaws. That's saying something.
I personally cannot wait for the next book to come out. Especially if it picks up right where this one left off. Emma is so gonna kill Evan! Well, at least I think she will. I can't wait to find out :).
If you like rock stars and a sweet, clean romance, Love Exactly is the book for you. After all,
"This was love exactly as it was supposed to be, slow, sweet, and agonizing in its perfect way."
I couldn't have said it better myself.
P.S. The scene where Emma's mom meets Evan for the first time? Priceless.

All the books I have read are the typical love story. With crazy sex scences, cheating, back and forth relationships, ect. and I dont get tired of it at all. But this story surprised me.
I loved how Emma and Evan had a slow relationship. They didnt rush into having sex or say "I love you" within a week of being together. They got to know each other and learn how to love one another and themselves.
We learn why Emma has such a hard time from something that happened to her past. I totally understand why she acts that way but at the same thing I kind of felt like it dragged on for a bit too long. It definitely affected her and Evan's relationship at times when I didnt think it should have. But I really liked her as a character! She was just a normal person with problems she was trying to overcome and had a wonderful boyfriend to help her see how he sees her!
Now with Evan. Who couldnt adore him?! I really liked how he wasnt the typical rock star jerk who played around, at least not on Emma. I wish there was a little more of a backstory on him, as the book leaned more towards Emma's past and them as a couple. I wanted to know if he had any issues and why he hadnt been in serious relationships before. The story barely touched based on his parents and how he felt about being a rock star but that was about it. But there is only so much you can put into a book and I know Im asking for too much lol Also I really loved his bandmates and how they are worked together. I mean that had been together for 14 years! And I also loved how they liked Emma and thought she was the best thing that had happened to Evan.
As I got closer to the end, I did at one point get a litte annoyed with Emma with the dragging effect of her problems, like I stated, but then the end happened and it completley changed for me. Thats when I feel in love with the book 100 percent. I was in shock (good shock) and loved every bit of the ending. I mean who doesnt want that to happen to them! lol Im a hopeless romantic! I even had to read the ending to my husband and he just laughed at me.
I REALLYYYYYYY really really hope there will be a sequel since the book did have an abrupt ending but I wouldnt let that stop you from reading it!!
Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
