What a really unique story, and in some ways thought provoking. Book #6 of my #100BooksChallenge. I stumbled across the book via another review posted on Facebook. The review sold it to me. I really enjoyed the ‘difference’ in this love story. It’s also free to read on Kindle Unlimited.

4 unique and thought provoking stars!
I’m not even going to lie, I got into this author’s writing style so quick! From page one the main character Ari really kicks off. I read very quickly and I woke up one morning at 10.a.m. rather than 6.a.m., because I was reading this look. I found the character’s very interesting, I found the story-line very interesting, then there was a really unexpected turn. This made the story even more so interesting, and very unique. I was so happy to experience this and to see how things would play out. This novella is a quick read, but really does hold a ‘moral of the story’ vibe to it, if you allow yourself to be opened up to it. Ari and an unexpected male cross paths, he’s struggling with a sense of who he is, and is in an interracial relationship. Ari is pretty heart broken with a story of her own.
At the same time, this is where I would have LOVED the author to deep dive into this. Both Ari and the main male character she becomes involved with (via the plot twist), experience a deep shift in their personality, thought process, and who they are as people. This was clear to see from their chapter POV’s, the author did a wonderful job at showing this. I felt as a reader I could feel the change in Ari and her main man as individual people. However I felt that it was skimmed over just slightly, especially the male! I would have loved to be shown his ‘change of heart, maturity, and new outlook’ he had following when his path crossed with Ari’s. For example the inner struggles he may have faced, as his change of view was deep! So deep it was like he was a brand new man, no longer who he was. I would have loved that. That said, I still enjoyed this and loved the message, characters, and how the author so uniquely penned this story. It really was rather touching to read. As a first time reader I would for sure read more of her romance. 4 unique and touching stars from me! I’m glad I read it. It’s so unique and has a strong message I could never not read anoher book!
