If you enjoy steamy, sexy tales then Spin The Love is a good addition to your collection.
The writing was great. Easy to read. Chapters not too long, not too short. This, for me was an easy fast read, just in a day, few hours but so enjoyable. And at the end of each chapter there is something form Whispy's grandmother (I hope I'm not wrong but anyway it's a relative who 'gave' her her name) diary, a few sentences related to what Whispy was living. It was good, something different but at the same time I'm not really sure of the reason they are there.
Wow. So many emotions, the feels. This is what I felt during the book, happy, sad, frustrated, angry, WHAT?, cry-right-now,love. It was just so much.
At the beginning and then through the middle of the books I was like 'okay, this still is a romantic story, not many ups, not many downs and meh' but then you are getting to the end of the book and ha! Yes, I ended up being crazy because I didn't expect that. There are a few things that I didn't expect and there is always this atmosphere of mystery but it isn't the main thing and you get bits of it and then you realise it's everything. When you know the things is really good.
THE END! God, that was SO good. It makes you re-think everything in this book, question everything and then, bum! The end, just leaves you wanting more.
I loved the family feels that are in these books.
Whispy: I really really liked her. Her personality, she was honest and she had her issues but I think when she loves one, she gives and does all she can. She really loves and cares.
Teddy: At the beginning I liked him and then I disliked him and then hated him. I'm so sad this character turned out as he did, I mean not because it was anything wrong from the author, it's just those people who get lost and never find their way back.
EJ: I loved him. I want to find my own EJ. He was so sweet and good and caring and I want one of his hugs. I really really do. Since the first one, how it was described it leaves you wanting to hug someone you care and I want a hug from him. #sorrynotsorryatall He was so perfect '
Dad and Daddy: Lovely parents. They cared so much and tried everything.
I liked that Whispy knew how much their parents tried, that they were really good and she appreciated them. She tried to not be mad with them. And that's totally something I can understand. I could identify with her at some points in this realtionship and that was great.
The relationship between EJ & Whispy was so beautiful, again I want that. I would love to read more of that relationship.
And again, sad that the relationship between Teddy and Whispy ended up like that. Such a beautiful friendship destroyed.
So now onto the story. Our main character is Whispy, a seventeen year old who agrees to a dare with two friends that results in a deadly, sexual game with results Whispy never could have anticipated.
What I liked about Whispy was that she felt like a real teenager. Often books make teens sound wise beyond their years to the point of not being remotely believable, yet Whispy had so many internal thoughts that we all did. Some hilarious, some tragic and then some moments of brilliance. She's also shy in a realistic fashion, at one point in the book even saying, "People don't know what the hell they're talking about when they say I'm quiet. I mean, I'm really loud. In my head." What shy person can't relate to that? We've all been there!
The story is really juicy. About halfway through is when the story really picks up and it just does not slow down whatsoever. There's a really touching romance in there as well as some pretty creepy psychological moments including someone severely losing it, but I won't spoil who. The finale is really gripping and I had to say I was sad to see it end. I wanted more, but I was also pleased with the ending.
If you want a mix of Dangerous Liasons but with a James Patterson flare, Spin The Love is for you!
In the story, we follow Whispy Callahan, a sixteen year old teenager, who plays a game of dare, not knowing that it would lead her on a deadly path. Supporting the lead character is EJ, an intriguing character that is well portrayed and holds up perfectly to Whispy. Needless to say, many unexpected turns happen along the way, which is what kept me glued to the pages and made me read the whole story almost in one sitting.
As a side note, I also enjoyed Great Aunt Whispy Callahan’s diary entries at the end of each chapter. Every entry has deep meaning that in itself is worth pondering on and keeping as reference. Truly inspiring.
In all, a great novel with more than enough suspense and romance for even the most demanding reader.
Fortunately, author Lisa Terry has several other novels to pick up, so I will definitely keep reading.
