Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Length: 242 Pages
Format: eBook, Paperback
Scarlett MacGregor has lived a very sheltered life courtesy of her over-the-top controlling parents. Having never been to a co-ed party, much less on a date, Scarlett has relied on her books, her music, and living vicariously through her best friend Evie to keep her sanity as she's patiently awaited her freedom from their rule. When Scarlett and Evie go away to college, Scarlett quickly meets Ashton, Dylan, and later, Mason, and is thrown into a crash course of like, love, and lust. With Evie's help, she must figure out the difference in the three and which one she wants before she ends up without any of them. Metamorphosis is the story of Scarlett's transformation from a young, naive girl to a strong, mature young woman and her search for self-discovery and true love. **Recommended for readers 17+ due to sexual content and harsh language.**
Five (Huge) Boundless Stars
I was really going through this funk, of not connecting to any of the characters that I was reading. As a reader, it’s important to find that connection, to really be one with the story. I even mentioned it to my fellow reviewer. I thought maybe I needed to stop reading. But who am I kidding. It’s what I do. But of course Scarlett jumped into my life. I had been putting off reading this series. No rhyme or reason just sometimes I do that. Then I find that I really love the book.
Scarlett is a character in many ways I can relate too. Scarlett is going to college, she’s a virgin. Yes the big V, so she feels it’s important to not just give it away to some random dude she runs into. Her relationship with Evie her BFF was one of the stronger relationships I’ve read. They had their jokes and of course their book boyfriends. But like life, you never know what the future will hold. With their determination to find their book boyfriends. Scarlett meets three men, very different. But they all have great qualities and not so great qualities.
The story itself is rather heartbreaking. It’s about finding out who you truly are but then dealing with the unexpected events that life hands to you. Noelle’s writing and her characters always stand out for me. There’s never a time where I think this isn’t going to be good. I think I’ll hold on to her stories for dear life.
This on my top book list and there are two more I have to jump into. I still feel a little emotional about this one. I did tear up, I did want to slap Ash. Because as much as Ash hurt Scarlett, I really loved him above the others. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the rest of the story.
Overall, I give this book a 5. I couldn’t give it any less and I can’t give it any more. Because the ratings only go up to five. I think they should change it so you can put 5+++.
