eARC Book review: Hold Me (Cyclone #2) by Courtney Milan
Available October 25th 2016
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
Jay na Thalang is a demanding, driven genius. He doesn’t know how to stop or even slow down. The instant he lays eyes on Maria Lopez, he knows that she is a sexy distraction he can’t afford. He’s done his best to keep her at arm’s length, and he’s succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.
Maria has always been cautious. Now that her once-tiny, apocalypse-centered blog is hitting the mainstream, she’s even more careful about preserving her online anonymity. She hasn’t sent so much as a picture to the commenter she’s interacted with for eighteen months—not even after emails, hour-long chats, and a friendship that is slowly turning into more. Maybe one day, they’ll meet and see what happens.
But unbeknownst to them both, Jay is Maria’s commenter. They’ve already met. They already hate each other. And two determined enemies are about to discover that they’ve been secretly falling in love…
This was a new author for me and i loved the blurb so i decided to give this book a try. I enjoyed the idea if the blog and the main characters not realizing they knew each other. It sounded like it would be a fun read. While i liked parts of story it never took off for me. The first chapter was kind of fun and interesting then it was for me just to dark and serio
us. To much techy sciencey stuff that was just plain boring. While i get that the relationship between these two characters is intense and complicated it just made me feel sad. I didn't feel the connection between Jay and Maria unfortunately. I will say the book boasts a lot of diversity with the characters but it might have been a little to much for readers to digest. The romance was just not there. It might work for someone else but for me it just made me feel conflicted and confused.
