There was no beauty in her dying that day…
When I started these Novellas I had no idea what to expect, and I was seriously pleasantly surprised. The story begins with Whitney and her best friend Link who have been best friends forever. They go to the movies with their other friends and Link’s girlfriend who does not get along with Whitney. Whitney with her love of popcorn while pretending to be a cashier for a moment runs into a mysterious guy named Crash who she is instantly attracted to.
Things are going great for Crash and Whitney until things completely spiral out of control when it is revealed that Crash’s father is the one responsible for the overdose of her brother.
Crash will do anything to protect Whitney, and I adored him. I felt so bad for him that he couldn’t get out of the family business, and the things that his father does to him and makes him do is terrible.
Whitney is one of the most likable characters I have read and connected to. I loved her, and I loved her fun and sassy personality. I loved the friendship between her and Link, and I couldn’t get enough of the moments between her and Crash.
I could not put this book down. There were some pretty intense moments in the book, and I could not believe this was a novella.
When you get to Novella two this is a must read. This time around it is told from Link’s perspective and it goes back to the beginning except from his view. I figured out so much and got all my answers I wanted from book one and more. I got to see everything that went on behind the scenes, and I loved Link so much and hurt for him. The bond between him and Crash was so darn good, and I will say by the end of this book I was shedding tears all over the place.
Novella two was even more intense than book one, and I am still thinking and thinking about these two books after I finished them. These are definitely worth a read and are the best novellas I have ever read.
Book one is also currently free on Amazon, so download it! Blue Waters
