Ok, first, Eden. She's so normal! I loved her. If she was a real gal, we'd be best friends. She was shy yet outspoken when it mattered. She was effectively suspicious but loyal. She was loving, with whole heart and body and soul and really, in my opinion there should be no other kind of love. She was sweet, caring, feisty, funny and also seemed to be making someone smile or making someone sigh with exasperation. I loved her!
Now on to Kiran. Oh boy. I heard so many people say that they didn't enjoy him or that it took so long for them to, but the whole time he knew who she really was. He was trying to save her, but was so drawn to her that he couldn't resist her at the same time. Yes, he was annoying in the beginning, that was the point! Big picture people. Big picture :) I adored him by the end of the book and though I'm a little hesitant about going into book two because I know that him and Seraphina will have to be back to pretending they are betrothed and Eden will have to watch all that, I can't wait to see how he turns it all around and either makes his father see reason or dethrones him.
Please don't disappoint me Rachel!! :)
I love their chemistry and how when after all that trying to stay apart stuff was over that they were both all in. Love it!
I even liked Talbot a little and hope him and Lily have a sweet reunion, though....he was terd for not standing up for her. So maybe not. Lily was sweeter than pie! And Jericho....I like him. I know something is going down with him....

This is one of those books that stays with you. In fact, I immediately went back to reread a couple parts as soon as I was done last night, at like 3 am, and then again this morning.
The main character's name is Bliss. For one, I'm so jealous that I didn't think to name a character that. I LOVE it. She reacted to things the way I would have. I love the theater\acting stuff that was talked about. The plot twist with the play and her best friend Cade was genius. I want to go to college with this girl and be her friend.
And then Garrick... he was so normal!! He was seriously sweet, he was British, he got mad, he apologized and then got mad again when she kicked his ego a little bit, he was a typical male who was very interested in certain parts of her anatomy. I like that he was so normal and had to do a little "I'm Sorry" in the end. And these two, when they got together to kiss or other things, holy moly. Like really, the air in my living room started to crackle. Those parts were SOO well written that I lost touch with reality for a minute. I loved how she was so open about her virginity in the end and they kind of embraced it. Garrick was such a gentleman.
And the ending\epilogue was so good.
This is a New Adult\Adult book for sure, but even though the sex was descriptive, it wasn't crude.
5 must-have-on-my-shelf-pronto, swoon swoon swoon, bff MC material, will re-read more than once, way to write a book, stars from me.(less)

Sometimes I just want a happy ending and he wont' deliver! ;) And sometimes he does, but not the way that you think.(less)
