's review

really liked it
bookshelves: 4-stars

Cheating... (ha, see what I did there?) Copy and pasted my review from book 1... because for the most part, most of it still applies.

Alright... so I'm back, a full week later. I have had such a difficult time resolving my feelings about these books. It's almost impossible for me to separate one book from the other because they are a duet and obviously I rushed from one book directly to the next. Book crack... it's the only explanation... Ms. Steiner has laced her words with addictive substances that we, the readers, were helpless/hopeless to do nothing but succumb to. Ok, that was a bit of a cop-out for me. Where was I again? Oh yeah, the fact that I've been sitting on writing the reviews for these books for a full week because I couldn't wrap my brain around them. Or rather, I had a hard time getting my thoughts out cohesively without a lot of 4 letter words. This is my 4th attempt... LOL!

In all seriousness... People are either going to love or hate these books. Take me for example. I am going to quote myself. I actually said the words. I'll read these books with you. (to my book club buddy group that I mod, here on GR) I love shapes... (note to self- I am an absolute moron.)

Ms. Steiner is a highly skilled writer. The way these books are written are so intimately insidious that you don't even realize how deep you are, until you're drowning in the depths of your own feelings about the storyline. Hence the reason it's taken me a week to write this review. A giant cliffy at the end of book one. Thankfully, I waited until both books were out before I chose to take the leap and read them both at once. Ultimately, even though I had some issues with predictability and some repetition. And a whole helluva lot of 'dafuq??? I can't believe that happened! what did I just read?!' I still have to give this one a 4. Maybe even a 4.5 because I'm still thinking and obsessing about it a week later. One question though... did she ever say what color their eyes were? #AskingForAFriend....

Nicky Grant Great review. On par with my feelings on these books. Your question about eye color...if you mean Cameron he has brown eyes and Reese’s were green...

message 2: by Ela (new) - rated it 1 star

Ela So which one has the blue eyes? Her attitude tends me to steer towards the one she didn't pick.

message 3: by Ela (new) - rated it 1 star

Ela Oh wait, yeah ....test

Renee ❤️My heroes are ordinary SHE had blue eyes. I checked when I finished the book.

Grey All that recessive trait business... I've got hardcore conspiracy theories....

Anne Mahoney I’m waiting for the author to come out with book 3 where the test ended up being wrong

Grey See!!!! *throws arms up in the air* I'm not the only!

Ela NO Charlie had brown's the idiots we don't know their eye colors.

Judy.Ca wait, what? book 3? Lisa and I are reading this hot mess in a couple weeks

Ela Actually it appears Charlie has brown and blue eyes...Chapter 3 "Charlie, however, was shooting lasers at me with her beautiful brown eyes." This is fucktard 2 or the lover

message 12: by Grey (new) - rated it 4 stars

Grey Uh-huh... So Imma gonna put on my tinfoil hat...

Renee ❤️My heroes are ordinary OK, so either one of them is color blind, or there's a mistake in Charlie's eye color, correct?

message 14: by Ela (new) - rated it 1 star

Ela Yes! They are either color blind or just a slight mistake (HUGE MISTAKE) so Grey I totally see a book 3 especially with the lack of excitement with this one's ending!

Ela Remember how the not husband was mesmerized with her belly at the end..... IT'S PROBABLY HIS BABY BECAUSE THEY WENT BACK AT IT
