Thin Love by Eden Butl
4.5 Wildcat stars
“This is always, Wildcat. You…you’re my always.”
Soooooooo glad that Feifei recommended this to me! Thanks friend! I love angst in my romances. And boy did this book deliver. It gave angst AND drama which I normally don’t like but it worked well in this book.
Honestly, sometimes great angst is better than great steam in my book. So that makes me weird? Who cares.
Thin Love is the story of Keira and Kona, the studious girl meets the slacker. But appearances aren’t all they seem to be. When Keira is paired up with Kona for a class project, she’s less than thrilled. Kona may be great looking, and he may play football, but he lacks what she needs in the partner department. Kona isn’t happy about the arrangement either, but as time goes by the two get to know each other better, and they find out they have more in common than they might have realized.
“I don’t want easy. I want the impossible. I want love so thick, I drown in it; it’s the only thing worth having.”
Of course, something comes between them and devastates both of their worlds. But can their love be thick enough to withstand the test of time?
“This time when you walk away, I won’t let you stay gone. This time, Wildcat, I’ll follow.”
I loved the story this book told, it was unconventional yet beautiful with all of its flaws. I liked the idea that two people could fight to stay together when personal dilemmas such as rage issues come into play. Plus, I also ADORE second chance love stories. I didn’t really know going into this one that it was a second chance, so I am super happy it provided me with my second chance angst.
“The past is a slippery vine of regret.”
Some of my thoughts on this book:
Seriously. I can’t believe that an educated woman would be that narrow minded and racist. Every time that woman entered the scene I wanted to bitch slap her, even though this book had a huge amount of slapping already.
-OMG the slapping/smacking! This was one of the few things I really didn’t like about the book. I understood the rage issues but after a while every time someone got slapped I rolled my eyes a little bit. Yes it happened that often.
-I’m not normally one to point out typos, but the misspelling of Keira’s name drove me nuts! Sometimes it was Keira, and at other times it was Kiera. Make a decision!!!
***I would highly recommend this book for fans of the Bad Things series by RK Lilley.
