Christina Lauren ↠ 9 Free eadI get the conflicting eviews about this book now I mean I will
Always Love Christina Laurenlove Christina Lauren will dive head first when it comes to any novel they write I adore themI think this story should ve been longer There was so much development that could ve been added to make this second chance love story even of a whirl wind I personally didn t have a problem with the insta love aspect of this story That shit is possible to me For someone to become that meaningful and close to you in a short amount of time It can t just be dismissed if one hasn t experienced it What I did have a problem with though was with how the story was fleshed out I think it could ve worked better if we got dual perspective I wanted to see how Tate and Sam managed their lives after it
CHANGED BUT WE JUST GOT THRUSTBut we just got thrust their lives years later after they ve lived so much of it and were supposed to be on board And even though we did get moments where there lives and feelings were expanded upon it wasn t enough for me to latch on A lot of what Tate was living was a lie and I felt the discomfort and facade that she had to live I eally would ve enjoyed eading about her dropping that facade and coming to terms with her truth Fully I wanted Sam s perspective with his adoptive parents and his see how his writing developed How he dealt with the aftermath of that time he spend with Tate and the passing of Luther There was so much to this story that could ve been added I don t care if it would ve been a 500 page story I would ve easily devoured it because Christina Lauren know how to fuckin write and bring stories to life But alas I enjoyed it Just didn t fall head over heels in love Need this to be sorta kinda epic Buddy eading with Karima Thank you to BookSparks for sending me a copy of this book as part of their HittheBookClub Fall campaign I wish I could bottle the feelings I experience when I m eading a book by Christina Lauren First there s anticipation as I ve now ead eight of their books and I just love the way they tell a story Then there s excitement as the main characters encounter one another and begin the awkward dance of attraction and emotion tinged with the eluctance of acknowledging their feelings Excitement gives way to complete emotional immersion and I find myself Not Handsome Enough rooting for the characters to find their happily ever after Then of course there s satisfaction which uickly gives way to sadnessbecause Iealize I ll have to wait at least six months for their next book Boy am I fortunate they ve been giving us two books a year latelyTheir newest book Twice in a Blue Moon has now become my favorite There s a love story of course but it s coupled with complicated family issues and the added appeal of the entertainment world It s ironic too that a book which in part takes place on a movie set is one of the books I d most love to see adapted for the big or small screenTate Jones and her grandmother are on a trip to London to celebrate Tate s 18th birthday and her impending departure for college Apart from the early days of her childhood Tate has lived with her mother and grandmother in a small Northern California town where everyone knows everyone and tourists are plentiful in season She s always longed for but since she bears a secret that the world would die to know she s the long lost daughter of a famous film actor she has always had to live life uietlyWhile Tate enjoys everything about London early on in her trip she meets Sam Brandis a handsome college student on a similar vacation with his grandfather who aised him Tate and Sam are drawn to each other immediately and over the course of a few late nights spent talking and they fall in love with each other Tate gives Sam her heart and at the same time shares the secret of who As an adventurous send off to her childhood eighteen year old Tate Jones travels with her grandmother from their small town in Northern California to London But the vacation of a lifetime is wonderfully derailed by the appearance of two charming Vermont farmers grandfather Luther and his handsome grandson SamSam and Tate fall hard and fast For two glor.
