I must say while reading that I couldn't help but fall in love with the characters. And to see how the story unfolds, to learn what would come of the sisters, Diana and Carrie, was such a treat. To feel the life and love was just an adventure.
Megan Mulry was so very kind to let my friend and I be a part of this charming read. To be connected to such a sweet story just makes my heart swell.
Just thank you, and thank you a million times! (less)

Though, the show is just as good. It's weird because some characters I favor in the book than in the show and vice versa. Same goes for those I dislike. Haha, two versions of the same character... Sometimes I don't know what are my feelings. XD(less)
Finished reading this the other night and I've been trying to find the proper words to review this absolut...moreSteamy, sexy, beautiful and ohsoveryguhhhhh.
Finished reading this the other night and I've been trying to find the proper words to review this absolutely gorgeous novel. I still cannot find the words. Just what did I even read?!
Right from the start I knew Griff and Pauline were meant to be. When they first laid eyes on each other... oh, my god! And the thoughts running through their minds, hilarious and just yesssss! We can get a feeling for the characters right from the get-go. And yes, it was love at first sight for me. For both Griff and for Pauline. Haha, I have a girl crush. Pauline is definitely one of a kind. I don't want to give anything away. So, gahhhh... I love, love her! Griffin is--what is Griff? LOL He has that special something that makes your heart melt whenever he says or does anything. Just what is he? I'd say perfect, but no, that's a disservice to the character that is Griff. XD He's just such a man. I love it, I love him. As for them together, I couldn't help but internally scream JUSTGETMARRIEDALREADY and have your happily ever after! But, of course, we actually do wanna read a story. So, plot. ;) And it was beautiful and, at times, heart-wrenching.
Tessa did it again, she surprised me and just blew me away. The feelings. So many feelings. I really don't want to spoil anything, but I just want to say that this story seemed to run deeper. I felt as if my heart constricted tighter and then swelled with an overwhelming amount of love for these two characters. My heart ached for them.
Giving all the stars to this story and I want to give it so much more. I'll probably come back to try and give this a proper review, whatever that means. I just can't seem to find the words! Just guuuuuhhhh, SO GOOD!(less)

When it comes to novellas I usually do as I have difficulty warming up to short reads. This one, however, I did warm up to it. I loved the flow of the story and happy in the surprises that revealed itself while reading. Unpredictable, I think. And I love that about LaValle's writing, not knowing what to expect, the thrill of it. It was easy to get lost in Cat and Jamie's world, and I read it all in one go. It wrapped up nicely, but, as always, with good reads, I was left with wanting more XD
The reason why I have mixed feelings is because I didn't agree with some of the decisions that were made by the characters. I had a few "WTH, what are you thinking?" moments. But then again I realized that without those decisions we wouldn't have the meaty plot that we were given. And yes to the plot! Also, I should add that this short read packs quite the punch with some very smexy scenes. XD
