Having overdosed on the cold, unyielding aspects of reality at an early age, books became a welcome escape I was happy to dedicate my life to. Editing romance novels seemed like the perfect career choice for the girl who craved fantasy and a world she could exercise a little control over. Bottom line, I like having a happy ending I can count on.
Where I prefer to have my head in the clouds, unattached to the tumultuous roller-coaster of real life, his feet are so firmly planted on the ground, they’re sinking in and getting buried there.
Jensen seems an unlikely hero for any story, let alone mine. He’s moody. And confused. And pretty damn sure there’s no such thing as happy ever after.
But then that’s the thing about all the best happy endings. They show up when you least expect them to.
This book was surprisingly engrossing. That’s not to say I expected the book to be bad, I just don’t generally get so swept away by a novel so firmly rooted in reality. Contrary to what you might expect, it wasn’t 100% predictable either, a refreshing quality in a romantically inclined story. Thomas has a cast of interesting characters and a plot that was almost magical, though there is no actual magic involved, it was more a feeling you get, such as that you might have while reading a fairy tale or epic fantasy. You become completely immersed in the story and forget the world around you, even though it’s a mirror of our own reality. I didn’t like Jensen much at first but as he developed I liked him more. Overall this would be a great beach read, it’s not too heavy that it would emotionally destroy you, but it’s not so light as to lack any substance. Definitely for adults, grab a copy and enjoy your holiday weekend!
