Blurb : “What lies beneath my veiled perfection is the ugly truthâmy truth, my reality, my destiny.” Vivian Graham has an acceptance letter into Harvard, a badass tattoo, loyal friends, ties to marijuana, a penchant for Dunkinâ Donuts, and her pesky V-card. Everyday she takes the Red Line to her job at The Green Pot in Boston while her friends enter the coveted, black iron gates to higher learning. The ramifications from a tragic accident have put her life on hold while time marches on for everyone around her. After graduating from Harvard Law, Boston native, Oliver Konrad, moves to Portland to start his career and his life. Three years later, after a horrific discovery, he returns home to trade in his three-piece suit for leather work boots and his suburban home for a condo in Cambridge. All he brought back to the East Coast was an aversion to pillows and secrets he keeps hidden behind a mysterious locked door. Oliverâs days are predictable and his nights are lonely until he meets Vivian on the subway. Her long raven hair, green eyes, and mile-long legs are achingly sexy, but the way she “innocently” fingers and licks her Boston Kreme doughnut can only be described in two wordsâcomplete torture. When their paths cross at every turn, laughter is abundant, friendship is easy, and love is unintentional. However, their future seems improbable.
Review : This is the kind of book I have never read before! I don’t know how Jewel E. Ann did this, but I can say for sure: she did a great job! This book was so emotinal-on every page you felt the heart the author put into her story. You can see right from the very beginning how the character develops-not only together but also on their own. Characters that are selfless, refreshing, touching and definetly completing each other in a way I have never seen before. Moreover, there was never a moment during which I questioned anything I have read. Never a moment which was boring or during which I thought: “Well, could this work!?”. Really…. It’s not only one of those stories including lots and lots of hurdles the main characters have to overcome. It’s a hell lot of more! So find out, what is meant with the more!
