I really, really enjoyed this book.

Amy's writing is beautiful. And her characters have depth and meaning and I cared about them.

For me this wasn't really a love triangle (Which I normally don't enjoy at all) but for me, the way Amy set it up and worked it, it didn't seem love triangly to me. I loved Reed one minute and then was done with him, and then loved him again. And Russell...honestly, I usually have one guy who is MY guy in a book. There's no gray lines or maybes, it's one way or the other, but...I don't know.

Maybe it's because, really, Evie never gave Russell a real chance. There was no cheating or whatever, it was just Reed and that was it. But I love Russell. The fact that they are soul mates and she still chose Reed kinda made me cringe a little! lol Just because I write soul mate books and that would never happen.

It's definitely a new take on the concept and I'm definitely intrigued how the Reed\Russell\Evie deal will play out. If I had to pick now, I'd pick Russell,(Though by the end I was completely in love with Mr. Reed) but I'm not sure if that's just about the soul mate thing or just because Russell was a sweet, southern boy and I'm all about that ;) Amy wrote him very well.

Overall, I was perplexed, sighing, growling and even crying at my kindle over this book. Such an awesome story by an awesome author. I'll definitely be picking up book two.

5 torn, sweet, I want red mini-wings myself, stars from me.

Karla Great series!!!

Emily I know right. Reed is awesome! He is so sweet. Well I guess it depends on where you are in the book.

Karla Lol! Emily I'm so torn by all the lover lovers!!! I'm sick I know but I'm infatuated with even the evil guys! Lol. Amazing books.

Sara Now hurry and read the next 2 books!!

Tatiana Wait till you read the others in the series #youwillLOVEthemALL!!!

Kelli You have just found the substitute to Rocky Road.... okay, maybe thats just me. But it rocks!

Sara I am so happy to find people that love these as much as me! No one I know has read them.

Jennifer I'm on book 3 and I feel the same about the Russell/Reed thing. I just feels like Russell is getting short changed. Book 2 made me feel for Russell even more. Reed is hot don't get me wrong, but Russell there's just got to be more.

One of my favorite series! I want Russell to myself since Evie isn't giving him the time of day ;)

message 10: by Sara (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sara I didn't really feel it was a triangle either. But throughout the series she brings in a few guys that you definitely have mixed feelings for, but don't necessarily feel like they should be with Evie.

Ali well now i definatly gotta read it!

Holly I think I may read this now. I don't care for love triangles so you made this sound a lot more appealing

message 13: by Dawn (new) - rated it 5 stars

Dawn This book was really a great read! I am quite with you on the emotion said of rooting for one character, sighing, growling & crying too. Cannot wait to read the rest of the books

Shelly Crane It was good. Looking forward to book two!

Erin Oh, yay, five stars!! I'm starting this one as soon as I finish Eden, so I'm looking forward to it even more now!! =)

Susan Alonso wait til you read the next books you will be even more confused but in a very good way...!!! all though i love reed i do love russell as well hes such a great character!!!

Shelly Crane :-)

Maddy I agree 100%

Helen Where did the sizzle go with the main couple? It started out great, but they seem like more friends than "lovers" ?? I hope the 2nd book steps it up a bit..

message 22: by Arya (new)

Arya I don't understand how she figured out he was an angel after just seeing a picture... how does that make sense?

Mahogany Did anyone love this book as much as I did?!

Kamala Pertiwi I still prefer your writing style. My brain hurts trying to understand this book.
