Avery or Iris has been through way too much for someone her age. She loved and trusted her father completely. She can't understand how he could be a killer. Soon after her father's death, her own mother moves to New York City and leaves her to stay with her Uncle Brandon - her father's best friend. She was abused and bullied the rest of her high school career so she just wants a clean start. She soon realizes that you can't run from your past because it always finds you. She does her best to hide from her attraction and feelings toward Luke. He makes her feel too much and she can't control those feelings.
Luke has his own tragic past. He was mentored by Iris's father and he can't and never will believe that he murdered anyone. He's known evil and he never saw it or experienced it with Max. He has always worried for Iris since she was 14 years old and all of this happened. But his growing attraction and feelings toward him has had him trying to keep his distance. He truly loves her and wants what is best for her. He has this need in him to be a police officer and try to stop as much of the evil and bad in the world he can. He is so talented in the band but it won't stop this need he has. Luke doesn't let all the women wanting him and the crowds cheering get to his head. He has to love someone to have sex with them and it has to mean something to him. He is definitely a one in a million type of guy and he is definitely worth swooning over.
Definitely worth reading and I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
If you’re looking for a book with fantastic writing and an author who put together the perfect combination of NA vs. Thriller/Suspense/Mystery then Winter is definitely the one to pick! One of my favorites this year.
“I’m always gonna come running, Avery. Whenever you need me. Don’t doubt it.”
I apologize if this review seems all over the place or not properly put together. It’s just that while I was reading this I kept thinking of things to say but never wrote them down. First I really need to say how much I enjoyed this book. I purposely dragged out reading it because I was enjoying it so much and didn’t want it to end and at the same time I was afraid to get to the end because I didn’t know how the author was going to leave it. Fortunately it didn’t end with the killer cliffhanger I thought it was going to…thank goodness for that but if I think about the end too much it could still drive me crazy because I have no clue what the second book is going to be about which makes me drum up my own ideas and that’s not good because even though it wasn’t much of a cliffhanger there are still some lingering things.
The whole world is covered in a layer of frosted glass today, stark and cold, and Luke is the only vibrant thing in it.
Winter is really the best mix of a hot/sweet love story with mystery and suspense, characters you love, characters who scare you, friends you want to take care of, and very enjoyable writing. What I loved most about the love story is that what Avery (aka Iris) and Luke had was raw, honest, and passionate. Avery was awesome for most of the book but honestly she started frustrating me just a tad towards the end and Luke, well Luke was interesting. I felt like Luke had different sides to him which is hard for me to explain but mostly he was dreamy and full of hunger.
“You’re mine. Say it!” he growls.
I manage to say it as I come apart in his hands, my body disintegrating into blindly firing nerve endings.
My last note because I have to say this, Luke had two secrets and one of them was hard for me to swallow. I know crap like that unfortunately happens but it’s just stuff that is hard for me to read about. So when you read this just know at the end there is mention of sexual child abuse.
As to the story, I like that it was different. I like that Luke isn't your typical player and values intimacy. I like that Avery isn't some prudish virgin. I like that there were dark elements to this book and I liked how the back and forth between the main characters was believable.
I did not like the whole story line with Noah, it makes no sense unless the author is planning to revisit that in future books. I did not like the final outcome and/or the explanation given. It was so weak compared to the strength of the story preceding it. If that had been fleshed out more and had made more practical sense, I'd have rated this book five stars but the flimsy ending definitely took away from what was a stellar read.
My only question is when is the next book coming out in this series? I see this one was released in January of 2015...
I would highly recommend.
