    Absinthe of The Heart - 6 Stars

    Absinthe of the Heart is a 6 stars story that put me through the wringer- and I loved it. Absinthe of the Heart by Monica James is a book that stays with you. I read the story a few days ago and the characters stubbornly stay in my head. Absinthe of the Heart is the first book in the series, a drama packed must read that ends with such a bang - I need the next book now, no - more like yesterday. London Sinclair is the bad boy her parents warned her off. He´s bad news and off-linits. Holland Brooks - Ferris is a senior at highschool and her life isn´t always sunshine and unicorns. She´s a bit a outsider in the glitzy LA society. And she should stay far away from London, but theses two have a crazy through the roof high chemistry. But their families are enemies and the feud has them on different sides of the track. They hurt each other a lot. When you love angst driven stories - this is your book. The writing is excellent and the storyline is unique and intriguing. London and Holland are star-crossed lovers and history repaets itself in their story. Favorite Quote: " Happiness comes with a price. " Absinthe of the Heart is a must read - I highly, highly recommend this wonderful book and wish I could give 6 stars.

    Review: Absinthe of the Heart

    Absinthe of the Heart by Monica James is the first book in her latest series, Sins of the Heart . An enemies to lovers story for the ages - this book was powerful and angst-filled and unputdownable! London & Holland's story blew me away! Told mostly from Holland's POV and spanning from the high school days of high school to forward ten years into the consequences of a lifelong rivalry between their families and secrets that have caused so much damage in their lives. This is my first book by Monica James and it will NOT be my last - I was absolutely floored with the story and the next book needs to be here, STAT! Enjoy!

    A book I will never forget!

    Absinthe of the Heart is the first book in the Sins of the Heart series (or duet?) I am not sure...yet. Either way, Monica James has once again given us an epic story that I will never forget. If you follow my reviews then you might know that I don’t read many blurbs before I dive in. If I love the author’s work then I like to go in head first. Once again. I did that with this book and I loved that I did. I don’t want to spoil anything so I will try to make this short. London and Holland were born to hate each other. They knew it the day they met in kindergarten. It was just how it was going to be. Their story started before they were even born. Over the years, London has been nothing but an a-. An a- with a arrogant smirk that she both hated and loved. Along with her parents, he made her who she was. A strong, determined woman who would never back down. He called her a princess but she wasn’t a damsel in distress. She was a bada- who loved to take him down a peg or two while also lusting for him. She hated how much she cared. She hated how he made her feel. Confused. Hot. Special. Used. Ten years later and he still made her feel that way. Only now, they were grown up. She was home to get married. To move on. Only The City of Angels had other plans for her first. She is back where it all started and now it was time for answers. Answers to questions she didn’t even realize she had. Answers to past ones. Answers she needed to move on completely. Will they ruin her or give her clarity? I absolutely loved this book! I was addicted from the very start until the very last word. I felt for all the characters in the story. More than others of course. London and Holland’s story is complex, beautiful, heartbreaking, sinful, fun, and everything in between. It gave me all the feels. I wanted to scream, cry, swoon, and laugh. Overall...It’s a book I will never forget! The writing is phenomenal. The story is engaging. The characters are beautifully flawed. I really loved it all even when I wanted to slap someone. P.S That ending... Quotes: “This is only the beginning.” Touché. Unable to stop myself, I stand on tippy-toes and deadpan him. “Bring it.” “You’re the cause of my chaos, but when I’m with you…nothing has felt more real.” “Oh, and by the way…I don’t think I’m special…I know I am. I’m Holland Brooks-Ferris…and I’m f- fabulous.”

    Uma leitura super fofinha

    Que livro tão fofinho. Adoro todos os livros da Monica James. Cada história que ela cria mais apaixonada fico. Nunca li "Romeu e Julieta" de Willian Shakespear, mas se a história de amor for tão bonita como a de Holland e de London estou tentada a começar a ler mais clássicos. Os romances são os meus preferidos e a Monica consegue raptar o meu coração na criação das suas personagens. O London é qualquer coisa de especial neste livro. Um livro que as amantes de romances não vão querer perder e muito menos aquelas que amam a história de "Romeu e Julieta". O fruto proibido é sempre o mais apetecível. O amor de London e Holland é completamente proibido. London Sinclair foi formatado para odiar Holland Brooks. Foi ensinado desde que nasceu que tinha de odeia-la. Sempre que se cruzam na escola London consegue partir um bocadinho do seu coração apesar de ele não suportar fazer tal coisa. Uma noite vai mudar a vida de London de uma maneira que ele não esperava. Holland Brooks nasceu com o aviso de não de aproximar de London Sinclair. Desde pequena que os seus pais lhe pediram para se manter afastada de London, mas por mais que ela tente não consegue guardar a atracção que sente e os seus caminhos acabam sempre por se cruzar. Ele consegue partir sempre o seu coração. Uma noite vai mudar a vida de Holland de uma maneira que ela não esperava. Um romance tão bem escrito que nos dá vontade de trocar de lugar com Holland Brooks. Boas leituras.
