My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved the concept of this story and the main character. This was a very different story for Erin Noelle from her Book Boyfriend series.
Although from fairly early on in the story you figure out what the main character is up to, the idea behind it is fun and seductive. The dual POV is insightful and pulls out interesting character traits. Erin Noelle always does a great job of creating book boyfriends that are easy to get wrapped up in. Lucca is no different. He is sweet, thoughtful, understanding and gorgeous of course.
There were times throughout the story I felt Noelle rushed a scene or plot point. So although as a reader you could fill in the blanks, there were a few areas of the story that felt incomplete given that the premise of the story was a really good idea.
The twist in the story was unexpected and good. Just when you thought the story was going to be predictable, Noelle threw in the kicker. Loved it!!!
What makes Erin Noelle a fabulous author is her willingness to try new story tactics and ideas. They are unique, exciting and a welcome addition to the contemporary genre. I always look forward to her books because of the risks she will take in adding elements to a story that very few authors will do. She isn’t reinventing the wheel of boy meets girl. Rather she is making it so much better.
I can’t wait to see where she takes the next book in this series. D 3.5/5
