    This book absolutely positively DID NOT work for me I feel like I got robbed because that blurb sounded GOOD but the book definitely didn t deliver what the blurb portrayed I m a HUGE fan of triangle cheating angsty books so when I spotted this book I was like Hell Yea.OMG I gotta read this soooon So the basis of the story is the girl, Jordan, meets 2 guys on a train, Griffin and Noah She ends up locked in the loo you ll understand why I put quotes on that later with Noah and h This book absolutely positively DID NOT work for me I feel like I got robbed because that blurb sounded GOOD but the book definitely didn t deliver what the blurb portrayed I m a HUGE fan of triangle cheating angsty books so when I spotted this book I was like Hell Yea.OMG I gotta read this soooon So the basis of the story is the girl, Jordan, meets 2 guys on a train, Griffin and Noah She ends up locked in the loo you ll understand why I put quotes on that later with Noah and he kisses her however Noah has a girlfriend She s seated with Griffin on the train so through out the 9hourish train ride she gets to know and like him also but she can t stop thinking about that kiss from Noah They are all on their way to study abroad at a university in Scotland I m not spoiling here because you can get all this from the blurb So you see to me that sounded like my KINDA book Let s just say my assumption was.WRONG Basically the feeling I got from this book was it wanted to be a trianglish book but still keep the fluffy aspect of a vanilla type book That just don t work with this genre So the entire time this chick is going all drama Queen over a damn KISS A FREAKING KISS..now had Noah thrown her against the wall in the loo and had HOT monkey sex and turned her world upside down I might have felt the attractionBut one KISSNO Even when they interacted I couldn t understand why they were so obsessed with each other There just wasn t any depth to them at ALL Poor GriffinI typically like the bad guys in books but not in this book The BEST thing Griffin did was leave because if he had stayed I might not have liked him either He should count he s blessing that he was basically wrote out of the storyit actually made his character seem strong and not pathetic like the other two But because he left there went the jealousy factor that I also like in this genre.If I had to read the word loo onetime I think I would claw my eyes out..it s in this book like a million TIMES The chick should have went to the doctor because no one should go to bathroom that much That s all I m saying about that.Now I m not typically overly critical of books but this book just pissed me off and not in a good way I kept reading it thinking something is going to happen it just has to..something has to happen.well I will tell you this NO nothing really ever happened The sex scenethe ONE sex sceneby the time I got to it I just didn t care any.The best thing in this book was Duncan the man child and Elainathey were AWESOME.LOVED THEM All this could have been avoided if the blurb was worded different because had I known it was a vanilla fluffy book I would have NEVER read it Then I wouldn t be complaining about it These just aren t my type of books.On a positive note if you like those type of books then I definitely think you would probably like this book and you should give it try I can see someone who likes this genre and this type of book loving it.it s just not for me This is just my opinion and you know what they say about opinions everybody s got ONE

    1.5 because 1 star is for the ones really special to my heartPlease read the blurb again just bare with meWhat do you see TRIANGLE orCHEATING orANGST orSEX PFFFFFTTTTTT YEAH RIGHT.It s all one big delusion SPOILERS I swear it s a conspiracy against me But I finished barely last 10% I skimmed I didn t care any, I just wanted to be done The second I clicked for next page and saw that it s over, I was never happier to see the words THE END Because I c 1.5 because 1 star is for the ones really special to my heartPlease read the blurb again just bare with meWhat do you see TRIANGLE orCHEATING orANGST orSEX PFFFFFTTTTTT YEAH RIGHT.It s all one big delusion SPOILERS I swear it s a conspiracy against me But I finished barely last 10% I skimmed I didn t care any, I just wanted to be done The second I clicked for next page and saw that it s over, I was never happier to see the words THE END Because I could finally put this boredom behind me.This book should come with a warning CLEAN NEW ADULT BOOK TILL 99,8% I think people deserve to know this because the blurb makes them believe differently Nope ONE BIG DELUSION.This book actually started really promissing, I mean, both men involved in the triangle had a potential to be great. but honestly they started to bore me to death really soonThe main heroine needs a profesional help for sure by that, I mean those pretty guys in white uniforms that give you magic pills She is overdramatic through the whole book, like she wants to be in some historical romance novel And all this is happening because of one kiss at 9% I think.yep. one kiss constanly mentioned, the earth moved, the sun shattered, I GOT IT FIRST 100 TIMES, really no need to repeat it till the fu king end, EVERY SINGLE PAGE And that s it maybe in total 3 kisses, and 2 are near the end seriously loading gun I honestly didn t feel chemistry between any of the participants of the famous TRIANGLE too bad, because maybe running into bisexual waters could have maybe add to nope forget it nothing could save this bookNoah the one that is the trouble and important for the story is one word man Whenever she asks him something, he answers to her Brooks her name is Jordan Brooks , and she knows what he means Yep, she knows the poems he sings to her in his head removing the safety on the gun There was no drama, no angst, nothing nothing happened in this book, nada, zero nowhere, neither between characters, nor in some plot sense.So they go through some bumps in their relationship but the thing is, through the whole book they maybe were in the same room 5 times tops you basically read about earthshattering kiss from the beginning all the time.You expect for her to have sex, and fun blurb remember yeah I don t think she knows how penis looks, I think her ex was like Ken doll.So, by the time first and only sex happens in the book 99.8% you really don t care because you probably fell asleep.Onething that is simply amazing and important for the story is that she constantly needs to go to the loo She is American, but since she is studying one year in Scotland, she refuses to say toilet, so you basically read on every third page how she needs to go to loo to take a piss I wonder did she gasp while being in the loo, like she h0gasped all the time hmmmmm pulling the triger There are some other stuff that I would love to comment but it s time for me to shoot myself with the gun because I refuse to spend another minute on this book enough time was wasted. gun fired

    Once I started reading it, I could not stop I loved the characters, I loved the writing, and I love that it makes me want to read some classic novels that I missed out on when I was younger.I am amazed that this is A.J Pine s first novel her writing is exquisite I hope there is a second, and maybe, if it happens, it will focus on a certain male character who deserves his own happy ending.I rarely reread books but I will reread this one so I can fall in love with the characters all over again Once I started reading it, I could not stop I loved the characters, I loved the writing, and I love that it makes me want to read some classic novels that I missed out on when I was younger.I am amazed that this is A.J Pine s first novel her writing is exquisite I hope there is a second, and maybe, if it happens, it will focus on a certain male character who deserves his own happy ending.I rarely reread books but I will reread this one so I can fall in love with the characters all over again From laughter to tears, to frustrated sighs, this book was worth all of the emotional commitment I gave it

    4 starsI received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I really really really enjoyed this book I was surprised that this was a debut novel I honestly didn t expect much, but I was totally drawn into this story from the beginning The writing was great and I loved how she weaved classic literature and film into the novel It was very well done I was initially drawn to this book because of the setting Aberdeen Scotland Ask any of my friends and you ll learn th 4 starsI received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I really really really enjoyed this book I was surprised that this was a debut novel I honestly didn t expect much, but I was totally drawn into this story from the beginning The writing was great and I loved how she weaved classic literature and film into the novel It was very well done I was initially drawn to this book because of the setting Aberdeen Scotland Ask any of my friends and you ll learn that if a book has anything to do with Scotland then I m usually all over it This book starts off with a chance encounter between Jordan Brooks and Noah Keating They get locked together in a bathroom on the train to Aberdeen that will begin their year abroad They make a strong connection but after they leave the train reality sets in Noah still has loose ends from an old relationship So as far as Jordan is concerned they have ended before they ever really started If you re all about instant gratification, then this book might drive you bonkers That s because this novel is all about the slow tortuous buildup, the random encounters, the longing looks and hand touches In a word it s delicious I m a big fan of angst and this book is the definition of angst Between all the angst, the brilliant use of classic literature and films to draw you in and a great cast of secondary characters, I was in heaven This book was a pleasant surprise and I loved every second The only disclaimer I have is that if you haven t read or seen the movie A Room With a View, then this book might spoil some of that a bit for you I am in the camp of have not read or seen the movie and it didn t bother me but if spoilers bother you, then that might be the only drawback Otherwise, I d definitely recommend this book and look forward tofrom this author
