Harper Bliss has started off the four book series running. The story is fast paced and I read it in one sitting. Good job I had the time, I wouldn’t have wanted to put it down.
The two characters featured, Maddie and Alex, both have hang ups about relationships. It’s great to watch them working out whether they can actually be in a relationship with each other. They are backed up by Maddie’s friend Isabella and Alex’s friend Nat. The story weaves seamlessly through all their four of their lives until it reaches the end.
All of the characters are easy to get know and interact well with each other. It was easy for me to visualize the scenery so that I was a part of the story, not just reading it.
I’m looking forward to the second book in the series asap. I’ll re-read this one first as it’s a short and enjoyable read.
