Will he be able to win her back? Or is this just his first love? Is Alexa the only girl for him?
"Things change, people change. We meet new people who affect us like we never thought someone elso could."
This book was good. It started off really strong, and then toward the end it was rushed. It just didn't seem realistic to me. That being said it is still worth the read. I give this book 4 stars!!!
I did enjoy the writing style of author Ashley Wilcox and I liked the premise of the book. But found the book to be going in one direction and then have it veer off into an entirely different direction. Without repeating the book synopsis, this story was about young love, it was romantic but the plot was not very strong or in-depth. I felt the pace of this novel was fast which did not really give the story and characters time to build. I didn't feel the story completely developed whereas seeing Colin focusing all his attention on football wasn't complete. The characters were likeable, but not entirely believable and although teenagers I felt they were all over the place. Overall I got little snapshots of the story and characters, but I wanted full development.
This being said, I felt that the writing was lovely, the hook was almost in and I did like reading the book. This was an easy read with nice characters. This author has talent, no doubt and I liked the writing. I feel given the opportunity to let the story speak will make her talents shine even further. I look forward to reading more by Ashley Wilcox. I recommend this book if you like light reading and romance. Give it a try!
The meat of the story, the stuff that pulls you in and makes you fall in love with a story or a character was nonexistent.
It's like listening to a highlight reel on the radio and the announcer just assumes you were at that game and that you know the players and you saw it all happen, so he doesn't have to bother filling you in. But the parts that you did follow find't even make sense. I just couldn't connect at all.
I want to review this story with honesty and constructive feedback. I am not a writer, however, I can appreciate all of the hard work that must go into pouring your words onto "paper". So here are my opinions:
What I liked/loved:
The author's style of writing-I enjoyed the alternating POVs and inner monologues
Storyline potential-everyone can relate to having their "first love" and many know what it feels like to be heartbroken and betrayed
The characterization-the author did a god job at expressing the thoughts of this age group
Sweet characters, cute love stories
Enjoyed that the main characters stayed in each others' lives
What I felt could use some work:
The time frames-the falling in/out of love so quickly, the "moving on" so fast (especially since this was a first love scenario that lasted for 2 years), felt like the characters found new love too quickly to be believable
Believability-see above, and also, most high school/college aged kids aren't ready to move on to marriage so fast (in my opinion)...in that sense, I felt as though there could be more to their stories
Too quick of a tying up of the ending (Epilogue)-again, see above
Also, felt as though the story diverged from what I was lead to believe where it would go, based on how it started off...felt like there needed to be "more" between the infidelity and the "moving on" for it to make more sense (or maybe I'm just a sucker for first true love...I did marry my HS sweetheart after all...BUT not until 3 yrs after college graduation :-)
I just want to say that I'm impressed with new and indie authors and the efforts put forth to get their writing in front of people! I will definitely be looking for her next book!
