Wonderful characters made this book so full
And entertaining- can't wait to start the 2nd book!!
Another series. This one might be worth pursuing.
Jessica seems to have a soft spot for writing about foster families and adoption. Not to mention she loves for her characters to have a haunting past that one day will surface in the present.
This story had a rough beginning for me. It took some time to acclimate to the story and the characters.
I like the music, fast cars and the cool parents. I sense Lyric is going to have no problems writing songs as long as she has Ayden to use as inspiration.
The story has a great message jumbled together in this array of a multilayered story. I like the fear element from Ayden. It's dark and mysterious. Then there's the safety and comfort element from Ayden who's afraid its too good to be true.
It's cute that Lyric holds all the power and control over this blossoming relationship with Ayden. Although I did not like her ignorance towards the effect she has on him. I feel like she uses intimacy as a way to comfort Ayden rather than show him that she actually wants more. Lyric has areas to work on when dealing with her feelings toward Ayden.
It took awhile to grab my attention. I was not sure where the story was taking me initially. I rather enjoyed the switch and direction of the storyline. My only hang up is having it spread out into several books. I'm not a fan of Jessica's everlasting series.
