Okay, so initially, I don’t think I liked this book as much as I do now. I had mixed feelings about this one but now that it’s had time to settle, I really, really liked this one.
This books in one sentence: Okay, whoa, I mean I didn’t need my heart anyway, just kinda kill me, it’s fine.
This was my first CoHo book and I’m actually glad I started with this one. It was recommended to me by a couple of friends and after enough people saying I should check this out I finally did.
A girl, Tate, who is a graduate student meets a guy, Miles, and the attraction between them is undeniable. But they can’t just fall in love with each other because that would be too easy, right? Miles has a past and he does his best to hide it from Tate because his past has made him the way he is. Miles gives Tate two rules: Never ask about the past and don’t expect a future. But of course, love gets ugly.
I really liked Tate from the jump. She was a very interesting character to me and her ambition was awesome. I feel like she has a good head on her shoulders when it came to her life goals and that’s always refreshing. She had her own mind but at the same time, she was doing exactly what she told herself not to do. I mean on one side I get it but on the other side it’s kind of like whyyyy?
I liked Miles too. For the most part. I feel that he was the way he was because of his past. At some times he was pretty much a dick and it was almost annoying but I get that he had flaws. I wish he was just more open with Tate about his past especially since he knew she wouldn’t just be a one night stand kind of girl. I just wish he wasn’t the typical NA hot guy with a troubled past that causes him to be an asshat at least half the time.
I liked the writing style of this book too. I liked how Tate’s pov was told in regular prose and Miles told his story in a poem style. It was interesting to switch it up between chapters and I enjoyed reading it.
I also really liked the story as well. It was a heavy one and it took me a minute to understand the weight of it, but now that I understand, I get dizzy when I think about it! I really enjoyed this book though, and I’m glad I took the time out to read it. I was so involved I didn’t take notes on this one as I would have another one!
