Cooper is left with no choice but to go live with his dad at his moms request after not knowing him his whole life. He ends up in Louisiana and instantly becomes enamored with Remi.
The love story between these two was so sweet, I was swooning at every page! Cooper is a big sweetheart and really wears his heart on his sleeve.
Remi bless her heart is determined to keep him at arms length but finds it isn't easy. I love how Remi was firm on not depending on a man. I felt like her character was written for me. She doesn't want to become another statistic like her mom. She just can't help but fall for this boy who tries so hard to walk the line with her.
Romance, Drama and Laughter will have you tied in knots until the last page, it was such a good book!
Cooper is sent to live with a man he has never known...a man that left his mother to raise a small child all by herself. Cooper will be nice, his mother raised him that way, but he will never call him dad. Living in St. Francisville is only temporary and he doesn't have to like it. That is until he lays eyes on Remi and he instantly falls in love. Hey, maybe Southern Louisiana isn't so bad after all.
Both Remi and Cooper have plans to just get through their senior year of high school. Only thing is Remi feels she has to complete high school so she doesn't follow in her mother's footsteps. But what happens when she realizes she is falling for Cooper in the meantime? Will she get her happily ever after? Or will things get to be too much, too soon?
I was so excited to hear that Felix had another book coming out so close on the heels of Emerge. I thought Emerge was really good but once I cracked open Perchance I was even more in love with her story telling. This is one author who knows what a reader wants when it comes to romance. I inhaled it and was smitten like a kitten at the end.
The buildup of the relationship between Remi and Cooper was just too sweet and too beautiful. Was it perfect? Absolutely not. But they grew and learned from each other. Both of them have flaws, one more than the other. And those flaws are what made them so likeable and believable to the reader. You want to be able to relate with the characters you read in some way or another and Lila pegged it.
And don't you just love the title and the cover of the story? Both are perfection. The definition of perchance is by some chance; perhaps. And that right there folks tells the whole story. Or does it? Maybe it wasn't chance that brought these two souls together. Maybe it was fate. You go read the story and then let me know what you think, ok?
One of my fav scenes...
"Are you asking me out Cooper Neal?" I said. Was it just me or was he getting closer? I could smell the Juicy Fruit gum in his mouth.
"Not yet." He smiled and took off towards the parking lot.
I barely got a hold of myself before I groaned. "I'm gonna kill him."
This book started off with a good premise and is, admittedly, one of the better-written (in terms of syntax and word choice) stories across which I've come. However, there were just too many soap opera turns taken when the author clearly didn't have to! She could've kept on an interesting channel and had her characters act truer to form (as she had developed them) let alone truer to real life. Sure, I like escapist stuff as much as the next person (I read fiction, after all), but it's like in the beginning of one of those "Scream" sequels when Jada Pinkett Smith is yelling at the theatre screen "...hang up and star-69 hi[m]!" Yeah, when the audience is so frustrated with such stupid, insulting and used-only-for-dramatic-purposes ploys then the author has lost them. Like in this story.
I understand I'm an adult who makes adult choices, but based on the arc of her story, how she'd portrayed her characters, pulling this running away / not talking stunt didn't make sense, wasn't true to *her* characters.
I also hate, loathe, abhor, have no respect for stories which have an epilogue in which every little thing is tied up in a neat package. Really? Aren't we as a culture over the whole only-Prince-Charming-can-save-the-girl thing? It left me with such a foul taste both for this story and the author: I don't trust her.
So I'm giving it two stars (vice one or zero) because of the promising start. And that's it.
