When I first heard about this book, I was intrigued and while I had three other books to review once I started this book I kept going back to it. And I knew why, Ocean.
Livie, Lawrence and Ocean are all dealing with things in their life that cause them to hurt, from loss to pain, to mistrust and they all collide together. Lawrence meets Livie first and then immediately falls for her but in a non romantic type way(although he did picture having sex with her) and then he thrust her into his world ,along with his cousin Ocean(love the name) and they form a bound to protect and love Livie. I really had trouble with this because of the un-believability of this, you meet a girl and within 5 hours you have vowed to protect and love her? Oh OK.
I found it really hard to connect with the Livie in some scene and in others she really hit close to home. This book deal’s with some tuff emotional things and at times my heart was breaking for Livie and sometimes even Ocean. there where things that happened that I whish we had seen more of and then things that were just too much off, I liked the detail the author had going on with the surroundings but I would have liked more details on the characters looks, saying they looked like (Paul Walker, R.I.P) or some other hunky guy gave me a great visual but I would liked to have more. The thing I most liked about the book was Ocean, he was flawed and rough and didn’t hide it from anyone and when he set out to love something he did it with such a passion it was hard not to fall the heat between him and Livie.
The book is a great jumpstart into the rest and I can see the author’s potential in this upcoming year. The ending was climatic and I hated it(in a good way) and I can’t wait to read what happens next!
4 out of 5 stars
