I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntarily, honest review of it.
‘No one but us’ is a bit special because it isn’t a totally ‘new’ book. No, it’s a ‘new’ version of the story ‘Bloom’. The writer decided to rewrite that story. I must confess that I haven’t read the book ‘Bloom’ so I can’t compare the two stories with each other. I can only tell you what I think of ‘No one but us’.
‘No one but us’ is a new adult story, a genre that I really enjoy reading. And I must say that I liked this story very much.
Elle Grayson can’t remember a time that she wasn’t in love with her best friend’s brother James. As a child he was always there when she needed someone. The last time that she saw him she was 14 years old. Now, 5 years later they will see each other again and will even be spending the summer together in a house. Will James finally see her as more than a friend? Elle really hope so but sadly the situation isn’t as simple as that. Family and the outside world are creating trouble for Elle and James. Is it really worth so much to be together or is it better for everyone to let things go and just be friends?
I really liked both characters. James was a good guy who has always been protective of Elle and Elle was a sweet girl. You really felt the attraction between them both but also the guilt, the doubts and the loneliness. I really felt sorry for Elle, this story really shows that it can’t be easy to grow up as an only child of famous parents, parents who are more busy with their own life and success than that they care about their child. I found it special that even after everything she had seen during her childhood, Elle still had that innocent in her. This story really shows how much influence parents can have on their child life.
The story is told from both POV’s. I was grateful for that because this way I could understand James feelings better. There was some drama in the story but nothing too much or too dark. For me it had the perfect mix of everything.
The one thing that I did miss at the end (but maybe that’s just me) is an epilogue. I would have loved to see how they were doing after a few years together. But I’m really hoping that the writer decides to write a book about James his sister Ginny and his best friend Max and maybe that way we get to see more of Elle and James too?!? I really hope so!
‘No one but us’ was a great book and I enjoyed it very much.
