Review Rating: 3.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Review: Sometimes, when all is lost, you find solace in the most unlikely place- a person's arms that you never thought would be.
The story started off intriguing. Then, when all hell broke loose, I felt for Charlotte. She's lost, suffering, and isn't sure what to do. I honestly had a hard time with the connection between her and Jason. It didn't feel right, or real. Maybe it's the way they came together, both grieving over loss, but it just didn't flow well to me. There are times I'm also not feeling the emotions from the characters- it's like I'm an outsider from the story.
The characters themselves are pretty good. Sometimes Charlotte and Jason got on my nerves, but figuring out a long distance relationship when the premise of the relationship began with more physical than anything else, i get that.
Overall, this is a great debut. I liked the story line and I would read other books by this author.

It’s during this time she became an avid observer of the characters we meet and the heartaches we endure.
