Review - 3.5-3.75 Stars
I am not sure how I feel about this book. I enjoyed it, but it seemed like the characters should have been older. The themes of the story were more mature than the age of the characters. And I think more development was needed on certain things. Its a fast read and does have some sweet moments.
Lola I liked her, but I felt she was whiny and overreacted on some of the situations. She was fine one minute and then like the devil the next. Maybe that is why I felt for the situations that she was in, she wasn't mature enough for them. However, there is a scene that I totally understood her grief and her guilt.
Brian I felt was the peacekeeper. He seemed the most relaxed and free spirit. He just went with the flow and I loved that about him
Nolan was the hot tempered and most like Lola. I think that is why they used each other the way they did. He seemed to be more jealous than Brian of losing Lola, but it also could have been because of what he was going through.
Luka was a great addition to the story, but I never felt we got to really know him. Bits and pieces here, but not fully developed.
I think the story is more than the synopsis. It is about love, sex, friendship, happiness and family. I think the author touches on each subject well, but just needs to expand parts of it. The closeness that Lola has with Brian and Cole is endearing. I enjoyed their times together and especially the scene with her grief. They were her rocks and the ones she trusted most even if they were not getting along at the time, their love would always bring them back together. There were some things I would have liked to see in the story, but I am not a writer and L.A. Corvill did a good job.
Like I said I enjoyed the story, but I think all the characters need an age adjustment and more development. This author has some potential because her writing is good. I would check out more from this author and would like to see more from these characters because I don't feel their story is finished.

He pulls onto a dirt road. The lights are on as we head deeper and deeper into complete darkness. It seems that the further we travel the darker it gets. I have to admit, it’s a bit scary. I’m beginning to wonder if it was a wise choice to trust him with my Jeep, let alone my life.
“You aren’t going to kill me, are you?” I ask jokingly, but deep down a part of me is serious.
“If I was going to kill you, I wouldn’t tell you. Just trust me.”
So I do, I do trust him. He pulls into an open field and parks the Jeep. He turns off the engine and switches off the lights. I have to admit it’s fucking scary as shit out here. He steps out of the Jeep and walks around to open my door.
“You want me to step out into complete darkness? What if there are snakes or something?”
“I’ll protect you from them. Now come on, trust me.”
I take his hand and step out. My heart is pounding out of fear. We only take a couple of steps away from the Jeep. It’s cold out here, the only warmth I feel is his hand in mind.
“Look up,” he says.
I look up at the sky and see it, it’s glittering with stars.
“Now just breathe and soak in the peacefulness it brings to your soul,” he whispers.
I turn in his direction, wanting to see him, but darkness is all I see. I look up at the sky and soak in the peacefulness. The stars are mesmerizing. I can literally feel the fear and the ache in my chest being lifted. Another piece of my heart is claimed by the man standing next to me. I don’t know how long we’ve been standing here but I finally look in his direction. I feel his body turn toward me. I feel his warm breath on my cheek. I close my eyes but opened or closed the darkness is the same. I lean toward him, wanting to feel his lips on mine. I feel him pull away, but he doesn’t let go of my hand.
“Kiss me,” I beg. I want it so bad it hurts, but he doesn’t. He brings his hand to my face and runs his thumb across my lips.
“Please, kiss me,” I continue to beg.
