Even if it talk about a quite serious and merciless illness, The Story of You and Me is a sweet story with an intrinsic positivism and lightness. Exactly for this reason, I liked but not loved this book. It's difficult to explain, but it's like I didn't want to read about the 'awful' parts of the illness and, at the same time, I'd have liked to read more about Sophie's efforts in dealing with the same illness... This is something I felt was missing in Sophie's story.
That's said, I really liked the parts focused on Sophie and Alejandro as a couple, even if their relationship is more on the love-at-first-sight side than I'd usually prefer. Alejandro is, after all, the thing I liked the most in this story!!!
In the end, I'd like to thank the author for the chance of reading her book for free through Netgalley and I hope she appreciates my honest review of her work....more

To be honest I was a little worried to read Steve's story since in the previous book I didn't like him very much... That said, the Steve in this book is very different from the other Steve and I liked him a lot better!! I also liked how his relationship with Joey evolved, even if it all went a little fast.
I don't have anything bad to say about Choosing Happy but it also isn't a story that will stay in my mind for a while: a 3star read

Poor Radimir!!! That's the thing that often came to my mind while I was reading this story!
White Nights is a novella told from the pov of both main characters: Radimir and Aleksandr. As you may imagine, Radimir's pov is the one I liked the most, as well as its own character. Aleksandr's bad publicity nevertheless, Radimir is a good guy and very honest about his feelings: I liked how he took Aleksandr's moods swings and I liked even more that his behavior convinced me about the truthfulness of his feelings for Lesya. I can't say the same for Aleksandr: his insecurities annoyed me from the start and, even at the end, I couldn't feel the same dedication to his partner that instead I found in Radimir.
That's said the novella is an enjoyable read and, even if it's part of the "Arctic Series", it could be read as a standalone. At last I'd like to thank the author for the chance to read her book through NetGalley; I hope she appreciates my honest opinion of her work....more
