I was always the good girl. Then when the pressure became too much, I took off and found me a bad boy. Niko. The hot, British rock star and frontman of the Halos. He took my angel wings and gave me a lot of things, well, everything but the Big O. And fidelity. So with my #fail in hand, I did the worst thing imaginable. I went home. The insta-nagging, criticism, and impossible expectations reminded me why my life #sucked—the reason I left in the first place. Well, everything was the same except for JQ, my high school crush. With a snug T-shirt and jeans that fit in all of the right places, it looks like he became man and maybe it was time for me to become a woman. #Kissing is a sexy, rock star romance for new adult, college, and contemporary romance readers who enjoy love stories with an HEA. Author's note: #KISSING is a full-length, standalone novel. Due to strong language and content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Three Boundless Stars
#Kissing is about Josephine. She decided at one point of her life to just be reckless and not care about anything. She meets Niko a guy from a band she loves. He's sexy but um hello has never given her a #Orgasm.. Like why even continue the route your in? It's more of a lust. I never felt they were in love. She's always had feelings for her best friend, the one she ran away from.
The story was or seemed quite long. There are a lot of chapters. I don't know if it was because the chapters were on the short side. But with it being that long, it seemed to be dull in some parts. It really didn't draw me in and I did struggle a little reading it.
Josephine makes so many bad choices. In a way she is a tad immature and more than a couple of times blames her mom for her decisions. But there has to come a time, when you realize these are your bad choices. She's on this I have to find myself mission. Like what were you doing these past three years?
The hashtag was pretty much the theme of the story. I get it # but to actually talk in real life, in an actual conversation. It just seemed a bit much.
I don't want anyone to take this review and think I thought it was horrible because it wasn't. It was a good story. The feeling of being lost and wondering what you were going to do with your life, I think we've all felt that at some point. Ellie writes really well. And I think as she continues she'll get even better.
Overall, I give this Three Boundless Stars. It has a lot of potential
