First thing is, the prologue is very reader-engaging. You would be hooked and would want more of the story and I think that is what prologues are for. Our Demons, Best Friends prologue served its purpose.
The story follows Ava and Sebastian, both medical residents who got to know each other because they both practice in the same hospital. Ava has an eye for Sebastian who seem to be mysterious and hides a dark background. In the course of their residency, they both unlocked each other's pasts and got along well. The catch? Sebastian just flipped and sent mixed signals to Ava.
Since all the characters in the story are on their medical residency already, I assumed this is a new adult genre but while I was reading it, the behaviors and attitudes of the characters mimics that of a young adult. It kind of disturbed me a bit.
On the characters: Ava, the lead character has a lot of faith in her studies but lacks the confidence for herself which is a bit ambiguous, as for me.I like how she isn't afraid to confront her feelings while being reserved at the same time.
Sebastian is the kind of character you would want to get to know more but is also okay just the way he is.
The side/supporting characters are also very engaging. I like how they completed the story rather than being just a background.
On the storyline: I like the premise of the story. It was promising and too cute but I longed for more angst. (Okay the adult in me is looking for hot and steamy scenes. Hahaha!) My favorite part of the story is the fact that it revolved around the medical field and that they were all doctors. I've always wanted to be one so there's that! :)
On the writing: Scott's writing is flawless but Our Demons, Best Friends is just too wordy for me. I think there are unnecessary dialogues and descriptions there that are better left off. Aside from that, the writing is excellent and is very engaging.
Overall, I like this book and it is very promising. I want to read the next book already. Also, if you crave for a cute, easy and fast-paced book, this one is for you! I assure you, there is no boring parts!
One thing that I am really tired of seeing in books is when the female and male in the book get into a fight and decide to break things off because they cannot be brave enough to tell the person they are OBVIOUSLY in love with why they have a hard time committing and that results in the said loved person not knowing why he/she is being pushed away.Like gosh, you are not the only one who feels pain..STOP BEING A DRAMA QUEEN! In this book however Ava and Sebastian knew perfectly well what the other one had gone through and Ava knew why Sebastian wasn't willing to admit to his feelings for her.
It was kind of a slow burning romance and I liked that aspect. They were friends first and slowly it all shifted with it's pros and cons of course.
Ava was a great female protagonist. She was kind of cliche at times, but other than that I enjoyed her POV and didn't feel too overwhelmed by her ''presence'' in the novel. She was also really funny and most of the laugh out loud moments had her involved.
“He's just... mean. Or gay.
No, he's not gay. I asked...
Mean it is, then.”
Sebastian was swoony as hell. He had really really REALLY bad luck in his past when it came to people he cared about and I did see why he was the dark and gloomy doctor with a beard, a Greek god with tattoos to quote the book ;) There was this one part in the book where I felt like slapping the carrots out of him and that was when a father scared about his daughter was yelling at Ava. The way Sebastian reacted and what he said was just too over the line idiotic and I just couldn't handle the discust I felt in that moment. Other than that I really enjoyed Sebastian and the last two chapters from his POV were utter perfection. They made the book so much better.
“My demons love your demons like crazy”
Ava and Sebastian were a really great duo and I enjoyed the way the complimented each other. One of my favourite scenes was the one at Lana's birthday party, when they had the air instrumnet session. I was picturing it in my head and it was too cute.
The majority of the book takes place in either the hospital the main characters work at or the apartment Ava and her roommates Emily, Miles and Paige live in. The setting of the book was really nice and it was so refreshing to see how nothing was dragged on to be long and unnecessary. All the important details were there and I felt like there was nothing that the story was lacking and nothing that was too much.
It was a great book and I really hope that I'll get a chance to read the second book someday as well. As far as I understand it talks about Emily, Ava's best friend and Collin who is Sebastian's best friend.
I am happy to see that most of the positive thoughts on this book that I had seen rang true and wish you all have the chance to read this :)
See? I don't expect much.
Seriously, no book is gonna do it all. I realize that. Some don't deliver on any of those factors. This book falls somewhere in the middle of the road. It was... enjoyable. Other reviews have described the story's main feature romance as a roller-coaster ride. To me, the whole book was more like a kiddie ride: on a safe even keel, moderately entertaining, and with little doubt as to which way it's gonna go. The writing is straightforward and satisfactory enough, but overall, the book could have been better with more thorough editing.
If I were to describe this book in a single word, I'd call it "sweet," and I'm sure many readers will absolutely love it. Could be, I've been swimming in too many deep books recently, which made this book seem way too light-weight and shallow by comparison, and for that, I sincerely apologize to the author. As the trite saying goes, "It's not you; it's me."
I'd give it three and a half chubby little stars, rounded up to four.
