"He was living, breathing poetry. Not love poetry, the poetry which tears out your heart, rips it to shreds, pushes it back into your chest, and makes you question what the hell just obliterated your soul?"
I'd use this paragraph to describe this book - and another, for sure - by Tillie.
A little bit about the story, before I get lost in the heartache of it. The main characters from Sweet Hope have made previous appearances. While a very good friend kept telling me to read book 3 before this, I just couldn't resist the temptation of Sweet Hope. The blurb, the teasers made me curious, yet also scared. But I finally did it. I finally picked up the book and met these awesome characters. I was never confused, once. I wasn't left scratching my head, because I haven't read the previous book, to get a background on these characters. To be honest, the details I got from this, the flashbacks Axel had... They crushed me.
"You're not the villain in this story, you're the beautiful flawed hero."
I cannot agree with that sentence more.
Ally is awesome. I absolutely loved her. I loved her passion for Elpidio's work, I loved how she managed to tame the beast. Not fully, because really, Axel Carillo has to be a little bit bad to be good.
I'm not going to get started on praising Axel Carillo, this broken man that had to grow up too fast; this man that was forced to do things, take decisions that would impact not only him, but everyone he loved. It's not easy to take this type of decisions. But he did. And even though he failed, he lived with the consequences. We can see a growth of Axel, throughout the book.
"Axel sagged against Levi as he completely fell apart and Levi, feeling this, sat back and cradled Axel in his arms. Their roles suddenly switched."
Seeing him strong for so many years, seeing him reconnect with his brothers... Seeing him fall in love with Ally, the slow process...
"She gave this cold heart of mine life. She gave it light. She was its f***ing rhythmic beat."
"(...) but with you... I feel... I feel... everything, every-f***ing-thing... right here..." I pressed her hand harder against my heart."
Yeah, so I lied. I had to get into details about Axel. Can you blame me?
I loved this book, if you haven't gathered by now from the ode I nearly wrote above. I'll be rereading it because it's a fave of this year. Axel? He's a fave book boyfriend, as well. 5 stars.
The next book in the series about an anorexic girl I hated, it was over drawn, melodramatic and down right annoying. How someone can sleep with someone so anorexic, so thin and bony without noticing is beyond me. So I barely survived that book and struggled through it. Add this series and you have a nightmare in your hands!
Xxxxxxxxxxx SPOILER ALERT_ xxxxxxxx pls discontinue if you don't want to know major plot revelation, eye roll! Not really!
So this book did not do it for and at first I was apprehensive in getting it but for some odd reason I didn't think this story was about axle, Austin's big brother! To begin with the fact I am reading about Rome and his girl, Austin and his girl and still very much entrenched in their lives was boring then find out ally is Rome's cousin and hooking up with Rome's best friend's big brother. This was just too much to handle. There are enough people out there to have kept the story unrelated and to introduce fresh unrelated characters to infuse new ideas, drive and interest in the storyline. Lastly, I didn't want to read about the other characters from the previous book well maybe a quick mention would have been okay but to detail their lives the way this book did was too much. To read about how the former characters were still kissing, to read about their thoughts, their Frustrations and all seemed as if tillie didn't have enough to flesh this book by itself.
The use of overdramatic analogies, vabose emotional descriptions, crying... oh the damned crying... earned major eye rolls from the inception of the book. I hated the way the story was told as if everything was in slow motion to me - in most scenes emotional turmoil is explained, emotional angst ( in words no less because we didn't feel the angst while reading) was described made the story unbelievable!
I was only able to bear 25% of the book and had to abandon it. I kept hoping all the description led me further on into the book but lo it was not to be.
In general, it was an over the top, boring and poor version of what tillie is capable of. I see there's a story on Levi which I shall be passing on and not reading - whose best friend's sister or cousin's friend has stumbled unto Levi now. I wish tillie had kept it fresh without all the friends ending up with the same people from the same circle, Urrgggh!
Tillie should have stopped with the sweet Rome book.
Don't bother with this book, you're not missing anything!
