Nevertheless, in spite of a few deficiencies, I liked Cristy. I wanted to know her better. We do get a lot of interior monologues, but again I wanted to see her in action. She meets Lisette rather abruptly, and the connection, the love interest is obvious, but I think if there had a foil...another character for comparison either physical or emotional or both, it would have helped. Lisette comes off in a confusing way. She appears to be classy, intelligent, and witty, but then not.
The physical attraction between the two girls is aptly described with their first kiss which Lisette initiates. The novel then moves along predictable lines: girl meets girl. Girl loves girl. Girl loses girl. Girl finds girl. It's at the last stage of the formula that I almost forgot how to breathe. The reunion takes one's breath away. It does. Now, having said that I hope the next volume of this novel that is currently being written--according to Ms. Marrero--moves us into a more developed storyline. Ms. Marrero has a talent and she has a story to tell. I would like to think that the next volume will develop into a richer and deeper development of character. There is much to say about these two women, Cristy and Lisette, who are intelligent and passionate and immensely likable people.
I would also suggest better editing. Don't rely "solely" on spell check for instance. Word will not pick up the difference between "to" and "too." It's okay for the character to be ungrammatical but not the author.
I enjoyed the story. I believe this young author has tremendous potential. I look forward to the next volume.
I would say overall, it's a great story. It keeps you interested until the very end. Towards the end, I felt like Cristy was a bit selfish and naïve, so I hope the author really has her grow up a bit more in the next book (although she did start to toward the end of this one). I get it though. The author does a good job at making you empathize with Cristy, and honestly, the fact that she is a little difficult at times adds to the realism of the flawed characters.
Excited to read part 2.
