I remember the lights.
I remember I wanted to photograph them, the way the red and blue splashed across his cold, emotionless face. But I knew even if my feet could move from the place where they had cemented themselves to the ground and I could run for my camera, I wouldn’t be able to capture that moment.
I had trusted him, I had loved him, and even though my body had changed that summer, he’d made sure to help me hold on to who I was inside, regardless of how the exterior altered.
But then everything changed.
He stole my innocence. He scarred my heart. He took everything I thought I knew about my life and fast-pitched it out the window, shattering the glass that held my world together in the process.
I remember the lights.
The passionate, desperate, hot strikes of red. The harsh, cruel, icy bolts of blue.
They symbolized everything I endured that summer.
And everything I would never face again.
I received the ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I don’t even know where to start, that is how good this book is. It is in my top 3 of 2016!
I am going to be careful not to give anything away because I don’t want to ruin any of the beauty that is this book or take away from your experience of reading Weightless. It was that good. Seriously.
I read the synopsis and was immediately intrigued. I thought for sure I knew what was going on. I like to think I have this special power that lets me figure out all the twists and turns before they happen. It’s a blessing and a curse. I thought right away I knew how this was going to end, which caused me all kinds of anxiety and stress, but I was wrong. I was so wrong. I was so wrong, that I couldn’t put the book down until I figured it all out.
Natalie is like all of my insecurities wrapped up in a sweet, well-versed character who portrays those insecurities on the pages of this book in such a perfect way. The character of Natalie is beyond likeable. She is every one of us. Reading her journey of self-discovery was beautiful and satisfying.
Rhodes, the hero, is rough around the edges, gruff, misunderstood and, of course, hot. But, his rawness is what makes him such a powerful character.
I literally couldn’t put this book down. I picked it up, started reading and the next thing I knew it was the middle of the night. I had to keep reading until I found just the right stopping point so I could get some sleep before picking it up the next morning. You’ve been warned. 😉
Weightless has all the feels, sweet romance, a little steaminess and a dash of mystery and danger that come together to make a perfect recipe of delicious book goodness.
Weightless releases on June 16, 2016 , but you can preorder now for just $0.99 on Amazon . It will also be available on Kindle Unlimited.
