|Loss—the failure to keep someone or something.
I know all about loss, and the resulting damage can do more harm than good.
Losing everything in one fell swoop… yeah, Karma’s definitely not on my side.
My life has been somewhat monotonous. Look after my twin. Play in the band. Party like a rock star.
My problem? I’m a perfectionist, and I desire a particular type of woman. I don’t want groupies or fangirls, they’re not my scene anymore.
But I’m not doing this alone. My brother’s friend and gallery manager, Alex, is along for the internet dating ride, and we’re doing this ‘dating thing’ together for support.
Now with chaos surrounding me—being arrested, accosted by thugs, and all the drama that comes with my internet dating life—it’s forced a wedge between us, and I’m faced with losing her forever.
Not my first ride with this author but again K.E. Osborn manages to surprise me with Fret (Recoil Rock #4), because this book again has a different voice than the previous ones. So it never gets dull with that series.
I could use a ton of cliché lines to describe the storyline of the book. With “you never know what you got until it’s gone” being the first one that comes to my mind.
Yet non of them would do the story real justice. While the baseline is a cliché and the idea has been used multiple times. Matt’s story still manages to have its own voice.
I liked how the story started… intriguing you how a guy like Matt could end up in that situation. Yeah actually considering all his Ideas and thoughts it was kind of funny (well not for him in that moment but well you will get it in the end when you look at the complete picture)
Matt’s and Alex’s dance around each other is sweet and there are moments when I found myself just shaking my head wanting to shout at them to open their eyes. So I guess you could say I was definitely engaged with this story and liked it.
In total, it did not pull at my heartstrings which is why it gets “only” 4 stars but really in all honesty not that many books get the 5th star with me. I would have to find myself hysterically laughing or crying a river for that.
I love the writing style of this author and I would pick up a novel of her at any time.
