Nikki, I have a confession to make…
Uh oh... What did you do now?!
Nothing! Why do you always assume I did something!? You’re the one that’s always up to something! I’m the angel. Anyway, I really regret not reading Changing Course before this reading this. Because this book was FREAKING AWESOME! And you just know that if this was a billion stars worthy, that has to be out of this world!
OMG! I was just thinking THE SAME THING!!!!!
That was awesome!
You know, when I first signed us up to read this, I totally expected a book full of drama and angst and emotion. And while that’s exactly what we got, it was also so much more. There was humor and snark and STEAM! It was everything I couldn’t have hoped for and more.
You ain't lyin! (oops my Southern twang is comin out) I was actually a little weary about this at first, seeing as I knew going in that there was gonna be the heart wrenching aspect from losing a loved one. I tend to shy away from sad tales, as I really love HEA stories. I was blown away! Yes I teared up quite a few times, but I also laughed my @$$ off throughout pretty much this entire book!
OMG! Me too! I was running errands with a family member and stayed in the car just to sneak some time with Caleb. I was so glad that I was in a locked car because I was laughing my butt off at times. If anyone had been with me, they would have thought I was crazy. This book should totally come with a warning label saying “WARNING: May Cause You to Laugh Like an Idiot in Public!”
LOL! It totally should! I freaking loved the banter between Caleb and Emmy! And speaking of her, I'm not even ashamed to say, I totally have a girl crush on her! I ♥ her! She was such an awesome chick. She was so understanding with him and she was up front from the beginning that she wasn't trying to replace Manda, it endeared me to her even more. But at the same time, she didn't take the crap he dished to her when he was angry. And let's be honest, Caleb was an Alpha male so he could throw some crap! Nope. My girl here just dished it right back.
Oh, Caleb was totally alpha! But on him it worked. Even when he was being alpha idiot, he never irritated me. But I also had plenty of time in his head. But instead of irritating me, he made me swoon. As for Emmy…she was awesome. And you’re totally right, she was extremely understanding and sweet about Caleb’s past and Manda. She totally respected what he’d had and never tried to replace that. Emmy is definitely someone that I could see myself being friends with. Actually, she kind of reminded me of you.
AWWWW!!!!!! Emmy reminded you of MOI!!! I think I may shed a happy tear! :D But yes, I agree about Caleb. I think when the author does an alpha male as a somewhat jerk, it really helps when we get his pov. That way, we don't hate him since we can really get in his head, like you said, and see what he's feeling while he spouts mean shit.
EXACTLY! And he even told you (multiple times) that he couldn’t control his mouth and he was a jerk. So once you saw through his mouth, it was totally easy to love him. I want my own Caleb.
Oh I so want my own Caleb too! Because even though he could be a jerk, he loved Emmy with everything he had. ♥ He was the best.
I actually loved all the guys…and that brings me to a particular event. How should we address this? Obviously, we don’t want to give it away.
Oh boy. I fear this will be difficult. You know how I love spoilers... But, for once, I don't want to spoil a book! There's a twist. And I didn't see it coming until it was right there.
Exactly how I felt! I thought it was tragic, and heartbreaking, but at the same time I felt a little relieved. Jeez I better stop... You know how little self-control I have!
LOL. Ok, I’ll change the subject…there was something else that happened in the book involving Emmy, Caleb and a gummy bear. And I have to say that there were a couple moments that I thought something bad was going to happen involving the gummy bear. I was dreading that.
I know! That was also unexpected but so welcome! I had to laugh out loud when Emmy said "gummy bear".
Oh! Me too! That was a total “awwww!” moment. I think it’s safe to say that I’ve officially joined the Aly Martinez chapter of the Author Stalker Club!
OMG ME TOO!!!! We need to make stickers!
DUDE. You really think I haven't already DONE that!?
So, are we agreed that this was a total was 5 stars read?
No, it’s not 5 stars. It's 5++++++++++++++++++++++ stars!
Uh…I don’t think we go that high. But I think we both agree that this book is definitely one people shouldn’t miss!
Definitely not! This author really has a way with words and how she weaved such a heartbreaking, yet hilarious tale of lost love, then new love was just awesomesauce! I have definitely found a new author that I will be stalking!
This is a book that should definitely not be missed!
