MY NOVEL THOUGHTS:
When I heard of Lose Me. I didn't know what to expect from it. I mean one, I've never read Pride and Prejudice (I know, I know. How could I, right?), and two, I've never read a book by this author before. Well, I'm glad I got the chance to read this book because it's a good book. Yeah. That simple-It was a good book... I mean I'm going to tell you why it was a good book. I'm not going to leave y'all hanging haha.
"Mostly It's a romantic story, not so much [a] romantic comedy though."
Lose Me. is about a female stunt double, straight out of school who has landed a part on a new movie adaption of Pride and Prejudice starring the Wesley Spencer. But this is not a job, it's life or death what with the dangerous water stunts and driving at high speeds along narrow cliffs. Ari Demos wants nothing to do with the gorgeous Wes Spencer, Mr. Darcy. He's arrogant, rude and condescending. But Ari was in an accident, a couple hours after meeting Wes, that almost takes her life. Ari realizes she can't keep running from the truth. She's at a crossroad-will keep denying the facts or will she let people know what is going on with her?
Wes wasn't who she expected least of all her knight in shining armor. A Island girl, a celebrity, unexpected love and survival. Will these two catch a break or will things make a turn for the worst?... Well obviously, you'd have to read the book to find out. ^.^
Things I liked: Honestly, I feel like because this book had the inevitable bad boy-good girl romance that's what made it such a good read. Because in reality, people complain about books being cliched with this plot, who doesn't love the wholesome girl and the heartthrob romance. I tell you what-I love it. Wes' and Ari's relationship is sweet and complicated (as to be expected) and probably a bit toxic.
"Did I do this to you?" -- "You destroyed me."
My favorite person in this book would be Wes and Ollie (obviously) and Ari's coach. Coach is just such a stand up guy and that's why even though he wasn't a main character you love him anyways and Ollie is just adorable. Wes is such a sweetheart, even though he can be a butt and bipolar. Wes most definitely had the most character growth and I loved what M.C. Frank did with his character.
"I also don't judge you guilty." - John 8:11
I don't know what else to say I like about this book without giving too much away. SO. You just have to read this book to understand haha.
"Today is not the day I die."
Things I didn't like: Ari Demos isn't my favorite person but I feel for her. She goes through hard times but I can't help feeling like sometimes she's mean. I feel like some of the dialogue with Wes and Ari may have been a bit dramatic at times but that's the charm to this book.
Lose Me. has been a fun read for me, I finished it within a day and kinda wanted to read it again. I feel like M.C. frank should make two more books with these characters but One book would have to be with Rosie and Theo, and the second one would have to be with Ollie and Katia. Can my dream come true please? Haha.
MY OVERALL RATING:
Lose Me. is a universal romance. I'd recommend Lose Me. because it's love at first sight for all romance lovers (Not to mention the cover is gorgeous).
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: M.C. Frank
Welcome to the engrossing world of M.C. FRANK's books, where characters aren't going to have an easy time of it: They will find themselves in icy-cold dystopian worlds where kissing is forbidden (among other things), or in green forests ruled by evil Sheriffs. If they're in Jane Austen's England, they have to be running away from a traumatic childhood, or if they are in our contemporary world, they're scared they'll die before they have finished high school. That sort of thing.
Don't worry, though, she knows we all need a little hope and joy in our lives, so there's a good dose of those as well in everything she writes.
M.C. Frank (writer, reader, designer, physicist and teacher, to name a few) has been living in a world of stories ever since she can remember (that's before she knew how to write). She started writing them down when she could no longer stand the characters in her head screaming at her to give them life, and while those first scribblings weren't exactly good (nor were they books, although she insisted on calling them that), they were enough for her to discover her passion in life.
She got her university degree in physics a few years ago (yes, she's like Sheldon, only a bit crazier!) and is now free to pursue her love of reading and writing, as well her free-lance job as editor-in-chief. She lives with her 'dude' in a home filled with candles, laptops and notebooks, where she rearranges her overflowing bookshelves every time she feels stressed.
Which is often, since (as you might have noticed) she doesn't pick the easiest subjects for her novels.
