  • Loved

    Loved this book so much!! These characters peaked my interest and sucked me into the story from the very first page. Bianca Easton has been living her life according to the plan. Who's plan it is she wasn't sure of anymore but there were expectations on her since she is a senator's daughter. Doing what's expect of her doesn't hold much appeal after she loses her best friend in an accident. Realizing life is too short and finding the bucket list her friend had started, she decides to stay in the city and finish the list. That's when she meets Ian Mathis. He's everything her father would hate and everything she finds herself wanting. As they spend time together checking items off the list one by one they really get to not only know each other but really know themselves. Now the six months Bianca had given herself are coming to an end. Will she go back to her do what is expected life or will she take a chance and live the life she really wants?? A definite must read! I highly recommend it.

  • It's sweet and sexy and funny and hopeful. Definit

    Gah! Seriously, the feels!! <3 This is a great and realistic romance (something that Jamie Howard does very well!) that will definitely pull at your heartstrings. Bianca finds herself on her own, determined to finish her best friend's bucket list and heavily consider the advice she received during the last conversation she had with her. She is a strong character, which I really, really liked, but not without some healthy vulnerability thrown in there. The way she handles the difficult things that are thrown at her, like the way her parents treat her, made me feel proud of her! The bucket list items are also not over-the-top "Climb Everest" or "Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower", which is a nice change for "bucket list" stories, and I really appreciated how each one was a way to understand both Bianca and Ian that much better. Ian is a bit of an enigma for awhile, but I still really felt for him, even before I got to know more of his story. He's awkward at first, but in a way that you can't help but find a bit endearing. I admit that, for the first half of this, I was perplexed as to just why we were given so much detail about his past, though I did guess at its crescendo. There are also some really fantastic bestie sidekicks in this, and I especially loved Rachel and Harper. All of the characters just come to life, rich and warm and, at times, a bit broody. ;) This story is so much more than just Girl Meets Boy, weaving not just one love story together, but two that are intertwined. It's sweet and sexy and funny and hopeful. Definitely not one to miss!!

  • Sweet romance

    I was surprised by this one. Romantic and deep. I liked how it also focused on finding yourself and growing up.

  • Unique story that captured me

    4.5 stars — Well that was an emotional roller coaster. I think the way this story was told was very unique, and it really added. I mean, there were times I was disappointed that we weren’t getting present Ian’s POV, but that’s because I’m greedy. I think sprinkling through the history really gave you an idea of who Ian was in a way nothing else would. I ached for him. He went through so much, and I felt his grief palpably. He had a journey that I haven’t really seen for a hero, or at least not in this way. I wanted to smack him at times, but it was always tempered by my empathy. Bianca was more our touchpoint in this story. She had her own emotional journey to travel. I can’t imagine all she was feeling and dealing with, and I loved seeing her grow as she completed the list. The same thing happened with her, I wanted to smack her at times, but I also understood how she was protecting herself given her family life. They had the strangest romance, I swear to god. It wasn’t smooth — it was awkward at times. It made sense given what they were both going through, and I still fell in love with them together, but it was still odd. I loved seeing them both attracted to one another, but unsure of the dance. I think one of the things I loved about this story were all the other characters that added to it. I loved the glimpse of Bianca’s friendship with Renée. I ADORED watching her developing friendship with Harper. Even though it’s kind of weird to think, I loved Maggie, and their story. And then there’s Rachel and Ben and Felix and Gavin. Even though we didn’t get much from the band, I enjoyed what we did get. I will admit I’m bummed knowing we probably won’t get Ben and Rachel’s story…I hate when something is teased but other circumstances make it not happen. So yeah. It was a completely unique story, but it captured me.

    Thanks for your feedback!
