What did you like most about this book?
This book was extraordinarily well written. The author clearly loves extravagant word use and word play. Even though typical wording wasn't used, it was easily understood and made the reading a delightful treat. Who doesn't love a love story? Journeying through the bonds of love with It Bit and Braces boy as children through adulthood as Lorraine and Isaiah was captivating. The manner in which the author dealt with the struggles of hurt and betrayal and destructive behavior showcased the importance of valuing other people's feelings and taking good care of their heart. I especially was drawn to Isaiah's character in the way that he even from childhood had such a grown-up demeanor.
What did you like least about this book?
I wished in part that the story had not dwelled so much on Lorraine's struggle to overcome her initial heartbreak and unwillingness to trust Isaiah. I do understand that Lorraine's lack of communication and fear of asking the necessary questions made for the crux of the climax and story, but I do wish at times the author would have allowed for this communication and this in turn could have led the story in a couple of different angles or sub-stories. I also wish it had been longer to see the official "public kiss" day.
Any suggestions for how this book could have been better?
I would've loved for the story to be longer. However in order to do so it definitely would've needed at least an additional sub-storyline.
What was your overall impression of this book?
If you love romance novels and love stories, this is a beautifully written novella to read. The story of the innocence in pure love and watching it flourish over time speaks to the inner-girl fairytales in women and makes for an enjoyable read. Two thumbs up!
