4.5 Out Of 5 "sharing the Chinese food of your soon to be exes" STARS
All Your Perfects - Colleen Hoover

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

All Your Perfects

Colleen Hoover

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

 

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I'm going to make this short and sweet…All Your Perfects is another emotional read from the queen of angst, Colleen Hoover.  I really liked it, although, it's not my all new favorite.  That's still Maybe, Someday.  Genuine characters with genuine real-life issues, a CoHo book never disappoints.  I loved the way Quinn and Graham met. It really was a perfect beginning.

Too Late
Too Late - Colleen Hoover

I Picked Up This Book Because:

The Characters: I’m not quite sure how I ended up on Wattpad but there I was and there was the story so…..

Sloan:
Carter/Luke:
Asa Jackson: It’s a shame that he is by all counts the villain in this story but he is also the only one who’s last name I remember
Dalton/Ryan, Jon

The Story:

I don’t even know where to begin on this one. This was so crazy and addicting. We have Asa, campus drug slinger, abused child, super smart, abusive boyfriend. Then we have Sloan, neglected child, defacto mother for disabled brother, stuck in a relationship so her brother can be taken care of. Enter Carter aka Luke, undercover officer sent in with his partner Dalton./Ryan to collect evidence against Asa, the yin to Sloan’s yang.

All I can tell you is read it. You won’t believe the things that happen. They will shock and awe you and then maybe make you cry. The drama is over the top and I like it that way.

The Random Thoughts:

Early prediction (view spoiler)

65% Prediction Change (view spoiler)

Oh and I was totally right about these... well mostly.... like 78%

The Score Card:

3.75 Stars

IT ENDS WITH US by COLLEEN HOOVER
It Ends with Us: A Novel - Colleen Hoover

Audiobook

First off, the cover is wrong. The floral shop is the opposite of Spring and pink, so it shouldn't be pink and Spring-looking.

Secondly, I get the teenage romance but it's almost like the guy was SPOILER [saving himself for her which at his age and history is a lot strange. (hide spoiler)] Also Lily seems strong, then not so much, then she's strong again. I just don't know what the author was trying to do with her. And the ending was super cheesy. 2-1/2 stars.
