IT STARTED WITH THE TITLE:
Allow me to explain my emotions in GIFs…
What I felt about the Listserv.
This one is one short novel that provided me with entertainment while on the plane back home…
I’m confused whether to like or hate Christopher – I mean, I do love a hot guy who has brains and of course, who is really sweet. But he does borderline being a pussy, and it is just surprising for a boy who is supposed to be ruled by hormones to be more emotional, and clingier than a girl. To be fair, he did try to fight his hormones, the strong temptation when it came to Ana because she was still involved. I loved that he didn’t push her to cheat on her long-time boyfriend just to be with him. He opted to wait, so I guess, it made up for it.
Ana – her drive to be successful and to reach her dreams is pretty much admirable. I like her in so many ways, not just because she’s smart and she’s quite a nerd, but because she knows what she wants, and she doesn’t succumb to peer pressure – and I’m really proud of it for her. She values her relationships, and doesn’t jump into decisions. She’s a pragmatic person.
The roommate: Can she have her story as well?! Nicki – I didn’t expect to like her, really. I think by that time she was still in denial. At first, I thought she was a major pain, but no, she just knows what she wants as well, not afraid to go for it, and doesn’t care what other people thinks about it. She finally met her match in a person I LEAST expect to. It gave me a few laughs, I didn’t really see that coming. Good one!
It was short, fun and sweet. It provided me with entertainment on the plane on my way home. I finished it easily, wondering who was on the list, why wasn’t this person on it, and who was interested in it. If that’s the way how girls and boys mingle in college today – it’s a little bit scary, and makes me feel a little bit old. I’m glad though that Dakota Madison did not judge it, nor condone it, she simply stated it as what it is, reminded the young ones of its consequences, and of being safe while having fun.
Romance novelist, Dakota Madison, has been writing since she learned to read and fell in love with books. When she's not at her computer creating spicy stories, Dakota is traveling to exotic locales or spending time with her husband and their bloodhounds.
