A Siblings Dilemma: Molly Lovell
A romance is a romance is a romance....right?
The basics are here in this break out book from new author, Molly Lovell, but the characters are not like any you've met in other romances, I dare to say. Boy meets girl, boy is a jerk, boy and girl clash while somehow managing to fall in love....and so it goes.
What I found delightful was Ellie, our main character. Such a real depth to her that I found her lack of confidence through the book impossible to become annoyed with. I actually found it rather charming. Without giving to much away, I've never read a character like Ellie. Despite her stand out qualities, she manages to snag the man...and it is a nod to the LOVE YOURSELF THE WAY YOU ARE movement, but not in the eye rolling cliche ways that you see everyday. Its beautifully different and stands out from any other that I've read before. I'm eager to see what Molly does in her next book.
If I had to pinpoint one thing about this book, it would be that the romance didn't suck me in the way some others have. I wasn't as drawn in and falling in love with him along with Ellie like I have in a few other books, but this book was great. Well written, amazingly well drawn out characters, and belivable plot.
4 very enthusiastic stars for this one.
