Intro: So the finger I thought was merely sprained was kinda sorta broken. I thought it would hurt more but maybe my pain tolerance is better than I thought it was. Hence the lateness of this review. It takes me forever to type. You never realize how much your ring finger means until you try to type without it.
Heroine: Talia- Talia was quite the interesting heroine. She had a tragic past—as you grow to expect with NA—but she had a strength to her that I really liked. It was also really easy to identify with her. She did, however, read a bit young to me. Not in a bad way but if the author didn't tell us her age, I would have thought she was much younger.
Hero: Bran-I really loved him. He was a bit more complex than Talia and a bit harder to figure out and, I think, that is why I loved him so much. He’s the type of broody hero that actually reads pretty authentically to me. And I definitely love my broody heroes.
Chemistry: This is one of those rare times where I completely bought into the chemistry of these characters immediately. Especially since the way they met was so completely awesome. Talia and Bran had so much they had to work through together and individually so their progression together was quite interesting.
Conclusion: I really enjoyed this book. The writing was excellent and both Talia and Bran were written excellently. I also love the setting. Australia is one of my favorite places but I've never read a book set there before.
About the author:
After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, LIA RILEY scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about as-of-yet unwritten books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. She and her family live mostly in Northern California.
