Cover Love: Very cute, however Garrick is described as having blonde hair and Bliss as having longer curly hair. So it is a very cute cover and the design is perfect but the models should really match the description of the characters.
Point of View: 1st person, following Bliss
My Rating: 5 Stars
This book was so much fun. This is my first by Cora Carmack and I can guarantee that it will not be the last. I love her sense of humor and lost count at the number of times I laughed out loud.
As well as laughing there was plenty of swooning. Let us just talk about Garrick for a moment. Holy cow. What an amazing character. I live in England so I am surrounded by the British accent every day, therefore you would think that I would no longer be effected by it. But see... I may live in England but I am in fact American and it still gets me. Every time. Although Garrick's accent is not the only reason I love him, of course not. He is sexy, smart, sweet, so many 'S' words there but all are true. Oh, and caring, compassionate, funny... I could go on and on but you probably get the idea already.
Bliss is hilarious, even though she is not intentionally funny. She is a complete control freak and I for one can relate to that. She overanalyzes everything that happens in her life and gets herself into some pretty sticky situations. I think because I understood her it didn't bug me when she did over think everything. I just found myself laughing and thinking about how I would probably be doing the same thing.
Then we have the side characters. They were brilliantly written. I loved her friends and most of all I loved her best friend Cade. There are a few moments when you think there may be a bit of a love triangle but it becomes clear that Bliss only has eyes for Garrick. Cade is sadly the loser in this battle but don't feel too sorry for him... thankfully he is getting his own story, Faking It, and as of the writing of this review it is due to be published June 4th 2013.
This is the perfect book if you are looking for something fun and quick to read. I read it all in one sitting and to be honest I never wanted to put it down. The first 20% completely drew me in and there was no way I was stopping until I saw how it all ended.
And the ending? I can easily say I let out the most content 'Aaaawwwwwwww' after I read the final sentence. It was perfect and to be honest there is nothing I would change about any of it... unless of course I could make it longer because I could easily read more of Bliss and Garrick.
