~Last Line: "This has been the most romantic moment of my life, dancing and experiencing this with my love, my heart, my life, my Zackary."

Review: This novel was a great short story to read in between book tours and Buddy Reads. The love scenes could have been minimized, or even taken out completely, but the general plot line was awesome.

The two main characters, Zack and Mary, never knew each other until one night at a party they both happened to be attending. Over the next few days they fall deeper and deeper in love with each other. It was definitely true love, and their parents, especially Mary's, were happy to see their children happy.

Zack cared for Mary, like, a LOT. There was no mistaking his love for her. He would do anything to keep her safe, anything to make her happy. Mary cared equally for Zack -- well, maybe a little less that Zack's extreme. She was so much happier after she met Zack. Her previous events in life had been haunting her for years.

Zack and Mary sort of remind me of Clary and Jace from the Mortal Instruments series, as far as loving each other goes, anyway. It was all they could do just to stop thinking about each other for even five minutes.

There's actually only one love scene in this book, and it was a little graphic, but not an extreme caution. This novel was pretty good. I hate that it was so short, though, because the plot was one that would've been great in a 200 - 350 page book :).

It sounds interesting, but I don't know...I have issues when the love interests can't think of anything else than the other person for any portion of their day. Then again, the beginning of love, a lot of the time, is all consuming so I get it. Great review Z! You are growing so much in your review skill, they get better and better every time I read one!(not that they weren't good to start with...hopefully you know what I mean when I say that...?)

Yep, I know what you mean! Haha, I was thinking the same thing! I looked at all my reviews I'd posted on here, and I was amazed at how my reviews have gotten so much longer and more detailed :)
