Melanie was in a bad car accident last year. The accident caused her dad so much worry that he wasn't allowing her out of his sight. She'd been grounded for life. On one of his business trips he stopped in Onslow to leave his daughter in Max's care for a week while he finished his journey. A week of freedom that Mel could only dream about. Mel had always had a crush on Max now all she needed to do was get him.
I really enjoyed the novella up until the abrupt ending. It still left me wondering if there was more. I needed more. Not to mention, will I ever read about what happened to them since there was no epilogue like the other Onslow Boys stories? WTF? I am VERY disappointed. I doubt we will be graced with a Ballan book. So so disappointed...
Other things... This book was essentially about Amy's games. It was super annoying in that it was unrealistic. A normal person would not go to such lengths. A psychotic person would. Mel didn't seem psychotic to me. I think Amy might have a few loose screws.
The editing is good. It's nicely in dual POV. I still can't figure out what RSL stands for or is. I looked it up and got no where. It's been mentioned in the other books too. Stupid American problems. ;)
I don't know if I've ever been this mad about the ending of a book. I'm just so pissed I can't stand it. Argh.
Melanie's at that age where she's too old to be a kid and too young to be an adult, that impossible time in our lives where we want so badly to make our own decisions, even though we haven't quite proved we can handle that responsibility. In Melanie's case, she's already done the opposite of that, proving to her father that she's not as grown up as she'd like to be, and he's had her under lock and key since her last mishap. Now he's going out of town for a bit, though, and since he obviously can't leave her to her own devices, he leaves her in the care of his best friend's son — the young man that Melanie's had a crush on since forever.
Max has no idea what he's supposed to do with Melanie, though a lot of things he shouldn't do keep running through his mind. But she says she has a boyfriend, and she's driving him crazy. Plus, her dad trusted him with her, and to cross any lines would just be wrong. Except the more he's around her, the more he realizes she's not being entirely honest with him.
I'm not really a fan of those stories in which characters pile lies on top of lies to make themselves look better or cooler or whatever. Especially when the other party finds out and starts messing with them for it. And that's exactly what happened in Max. However, Duggan's characters are so much fun, and I love the way she spins stories, so as much as I didn't want to fall for it, I liked it quite a bit. Granted, it wasn't the full length novel I've been dying for, but it was a nice taste of the Onslow boys in the interim and a very enjoyable read. I've said it before, but if you haven't read her Summer series, it's an absolute must!
What I loved:
I really enjoyed Melanie’s character, and felt for her – she just wanted to move on with her life after her one big mistake and not feel so sheltered all the time. She also wanted Max to see her as something more than his little sister’s friend, but she found herself going about it in all the wrong ways and then kind of getting stuck, digging herself deeper and deeper in her lies. Her story was fun and I loved how Amy was tied into it so much!!
It was also nice to have Max’s perspective in this book. The fact that he was onto Melanie and Amy’s lies pretty much the whole time made the story that much more amusing and made me eager to see how it was all going to play out!
Not enough time to connect.
The reason that this book only got three stars from me is because I just never felt a real connection between Melanie and Max, at least on Max’s side of the equation. Melanie had been hung up on Max for years, so her interest made complete sense. But Max just seemed vaguely interested in Melanie (he thought she was hot) and there wasn’t enough interaction between the two of them to make me understand why he liked her (beyond the aforementioned hotness and the fact that he was a bit jealous of a possible boyfriend).Read more ›
