"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Okay.. While I did like this book, I definitely did not love it.
Ransom's story was certainly heartbreaking, yes. Gut wrenching at times. But there were still many things that just didn't flow as organically within this story, in ways that I would have liked to see.
For one-Waaaaaaaaaaaay too much angst for me. Given we are talking about 18-20 year olds here, but still.. And how he chose to handle his self inflicting punishment? Had me like..*Looking confused, & a bit skeeved out*
Granted, no two people react to grief & self inflicting harm because of that grief in the same way, but still, I thought it would be something else given HIS particular circumstance.. And the mystery thing with the "Dancer" and reveal of all of that, kinda fell flat for me too. Given how the build up was going. I was hoping for more of a BOOM! But that's not what I got. *shrugs*
Loved Kona & Keira as always.. And their presence here and what they brought to the story. And Koa! My goodness! Such an adorable boy. I could totally see him in my mind's eye :)
So granted there were many things here that I loved. And many that I didn't like. I certainly did not care for the epilogue here. The way things ended were awesome. But the epilogue ruined it for me.
Overall I think there is nothing really epic or more to explore about Ransom or his story. So I won't be back for "Ransom part 2"
I think all the greatness for this series lies within book 1, "Thin Love" & the Novella, "My Beloved."
I would recommend this read if only to satisfy your curiosity about what the great love of Kona & Keira produced within Ransom. This is still a decent read, but the stories that blow you away, are books 1 & the Novella..
I feel that this book, could go either way for you.
Happy Reading :)
FYI -- I did include some spoilers in my goodreads review, so if you're like me and like to have them before I read a book -- check it out.
Storyline: This is Aly and Ransom's story. They meet when Aly is taken in by Ransom's cousin, Leann (that we meet in the first book), and moves into the loft above her dance studio. Through the following year in a half Aly watches Ransom grieving over the loss of his first love. She watches from afar and he hardly notices her. Meanwhile Ransom is broken and hiding his true feelings of guilt from everyone and making himself "pay" for what happened to his girlfriend. He hooks up with girls from the college, but only "services" them and never lets them touch him or even gets physically aroused. After a confusing encounter with a burlesque dancer, he sees Aly the next day at his aunt's dance studio and asks her to help his Mom with taking care of his little brother while she is pregnant. After a few delays they start a friendship that turns into stronger feelings. Ransom is still holding on to his guilt though and this makes it hard for him to be fully with Aly, and even though Aly has strong feelings for Ransom she doesn't want to be in a relationship with a ghost always present. That's pretty much as far as I can go without ruining it for readers, but know that it is an emotional story....
POV: This alternated between Aly and Ransom's POV.
Overall Pace of Story: Good. The ending was abrupt, but that's a cliffhanger for you!
H rating: 4 stars. Ransom. Bless his heart -- he was a damaged hero. Some of the things he said and did I felt were really hurtful for Aly, but he was so wrapped up in his grief that it was like he was oblivious that others loved him (including Aly)...so I don't feel like he was hurtful on purpose.
h rating: 4 stars. She should be nominated for sainthood for the things she went through for Ransom and still stood by him. She bordered on the line of becoming a doormat, but I don't think she crossed it. She loved fiercely and I found that her creole cursing was endearing.
Sadness level: High. I think I cried through the whole book!!! Tissues needed for this one.
Heat level: Low. A few steamy times, but not too many. I think it was just right for the story content, because there was so much psychologically going on that I think it would be confusing if a lot of sex scenes were thrown in.
Descriptive sex: Yes
Closure: Non existent. We get a cliffhanger.
I'm SO mad we have to wait until 2016!!!!!
