my review -
Rachel – she might be in a wheelchair, but don’t underestimate her because this girl is as tough as any of those who can stand in their own feet. I love the outlook of her character, she didn’t let her ‘disability’ hinder her happiness, or any possibilities that life may offer her (well except for love, Jared had to worked hard for that one!). She’s independent, and doesn’t really care what other people thinks of her.
Then here comes the handsome, happy-go-lucky Jared who was living on his father’s credit card and really doesn’t take anything seriously. Until he realized that he actually FELT something for Rachel.
Rachel wouldn’t hear any of it, but Jared was relentless in his pursuit, and I was laughing out loud, thoroughly entertained by his antics on how to make Rachel say YES to him. He’s naughty and has a lot of ideas – his imagination runs wildly and yes, Rachel is in for the biggest surprise of her life.
And I thought she was the only one who has problems – Jared has been keeping some secrets too. What started to be fun, exciting and exhilarating love affair turned a sudden serious turn when the red double-line appears on a kit and secrets were exposed.
Both of them are stubborn enough to ask for help, even when it’s clear that they desperately need some. It’s hard to ask for help, especially when all your life you have been independent, or you wanted to appear strong to anyone. But sometimes, even the toughest people needs help, and despite their strength, it would always be struggle for them to ask.
There was enough drama to stir my emotions, some twists that I haven’t seen coming, and despite all of it I can still say that this one is a feel-good novel. Another great fact is that this might be a part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone – HOW GREAT IS THAT?!
If there is one word to describe this novel it would be FUN.
I laughed out a lot, got so entertained, amazed by this extraordinary couple who started out as friends and were brave enough to ventured into something more.
Some people might say they don’t want to risk their friendship to form deeper relationships that might not work, but after reading this, feeling all the perks, the ups and downs of having a friend as a lover- then perhaps the risk is worth taking after all.
