I'm going to just say this now. This book is by Simone Elkeles.
So it was freakin' AMAZING.
|I am the man in blue|
*I'LL TRY NOT TO SPOIL*
#1: Derek and Ashtyn's chemistry was so amazing. Ashtyn was so sassy and Derek was so sarcastic and they were just AWW together, I can barely fathom my emotions about them into words.
#2: The football aspect was pretty cool. Personally, I'm not a football fan. But there were so many great feminine aspects that Elkeles explored, since Ashtyn is a kicker on her high school's football team. Boys are icky, but Derek...
#3: Derek is so swoon-worthy I could sob
|(Well YOU could be too, but this is directed at Derek ;) )|
#4: When Elkeles does alternating POVs, then it's WELL-FREAKING-DONE. She captured two different voices so elegantly. It's a true talent. It brings me back to my favorite of hers, Rules of Attraction.
#5: That grandmother is fantastic. She's a bit of spoiler, so that's all I'm saying.
But yes, this was such a well-written book, and I hope you all read it when it comes out. And I already can't wait for the sequel.
(Sorry for not posting for a bit. I'm going on a posting spree today though!)
