The book starts off in a way that led me to believe it was just going to be another new adult romance. Not that there's anything wrong with that, you understand. I love new adult romance. I assumed this would just be a story of two opposites attracting and, while slightly inconvenient because they were coworkers, it wouldn't be much more than that. Boy, was I wrong. I'm not going to get all spoilery or talk about what Not Yet actually turned out to be because, honestly, it's best if you just experience it all for yourself. All I'll say is that it definitely takes a turn partway through and, as much as I was enjoying the beginning part, the second half is where these characters and this story really shined for me.
This was an emotional read, but it wasn't one that had me crying every few pages. It was more of a roller coaster than that. I thought the characters were great. Of course, Emma and Landon were my favorites. I didn't love them both all the time, but they were real and flawed. They got it wrong sometimes. As people do. Both of them grew so much through this book, but it was Landon that really won the day. He started the book as a boy and ended as a man... and a damn fine one at that.
I enjoyed (most of) the secondary characters in this book as well. Emma's sister Evie was just flat out wonderful. I loved the simple and honest way she looked at love and life. Emma's mom wasn't a huge part of the story, but there were a couple scenes where she really stood out to me. Dean might've been Landon's best friend, but more often than not, I thought he was a jerk. He wasn't a truly awful character, but he was just a typical popular high school jock. That is, until he wasn't anymore. He, too, grew over the course of this story and I can't wait for Until Now to see what life will bring for him.
If you've ever been hurt or had a tough time granting trust in a relationship, or you've ever wanted someone you can't have, Not Yet will hit you hard at times. The emotions the characters are facing are so raw, so real, so perfectly imperfect that it darn near took my breath away at times. Sometimes when you have to wait, the payoff is worth all the pain and that certainly was the case for Emma and Landon, and too, in some ways, for me with this book. I saw some of myself in both of the characters, for different reasons, and that made this book so much more than just a romance to me. I wish now I hadn't waited so long to read it, but I'm certainly not disappointed in the experience.
I am stalking Laura Ward and everything she has ever written!
Talk about writing a book that started one way and then...half way through...just up and slapped me in the face!
All I knew was that this book had a pretty cover and a good synopsis and that it sounded like it could be something I would enjoy!
Yeah - so I may have been a little off with my first thought on this book...not to mention this series and this author!
Pretty cover - CHECK!
Great Synopsis - CHECK!
Did I mention a storyline that held me captive until I turned the very last page and devoured the very last word?!
I read this in one sitting and then proceeded to spend the next two days completely submerged in everything Laura Ward!
I'm talking, full head under water, no time to come up for breath, submerged!
If you were trying to write a book that would turn readers into fans in one foul swoop well then let me tell you Ms. Laura Ward - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
I went from 'Oh yeah this could be good' to "Oh my god it's 5am and I cannot put this down!" in the blink of an eye!
There was something about these two characters that I needed to know more about!
Why they did the things they did and how they would be able to navigate their way back to each other after certain circumstances forced them apart.
I love reading a book where I get the end and feel like I have just sat down to a decadent dinner of all my favourite foods and I'm just bloated, full, slightly uncomfortable and completely and utterly SATISFIED!!!
One of the things I particularly liked about this book was how it incorporated people with special needs in a way that shaped and molded the characters of the story into better people. I can't recall any other books that face this subject matter so strongly and positively. Ward has an incredible message and incorporates it wonderfully into Emma and Landon's story: Everyone is equal. And those who are special, even though they're different, have something to teach us if we pay attention.
I also loved how Emma and Landon learned life lessons throughout the book. It was clever how the lessons were highlighted at the end of each chapter, reminding the reader (sometimes with humor and sometimes with heartache) what Emma and Landon learned as they navigated the obstacles of their lives. Sometimes the life lessons were positive, sometimes they were negative, but there was always a message. The best one? "Sometimes it's the wait...the not yets of life that are the very best lessons of all to learn."
