Goodreads Synopsis:

What if the missing person is your missing piece?

Rose has always played by the rules – now it’s time to break them.

Life’s easier when you stay away from other people. Rose Valentine knows that. But some people are impossible to ignore. Take Theo Lockhart. He’s handsome, funny and beyond intriguing. He’s a mystery; one that Rose dreams of solving.

Then one night the mystery deepens. Theo turns up on Rose’s doorstep, desperate to hide out at her house. He’s keeping secrets, and Rose has a million questions. Not least – why did he choose to run to her?

If Rose lets him in, she’ll be going against everything she holds true. It’s reckless, risky – and definitely not in the rulebook. But Theo makes Rose long to break the rules After a whirlwind week of brat-pack movies, midnight snacks and non-stop chat, where do Rose and Theo go from here?

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

This book honestly sounds like it is going to make my heart happy. I love books about a mysterious love interest who sort of borderlines a bad boy. These books make my heart so happy. I cannot wait to jump into this book!

Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a quick disclaimer for those reading this review, I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

I loved the quirky banter-like dialogue between Theo and our main character. I was constantly swooning and laughing myself to a breathless state. The writing in itself was overall not too bad. I did feel as though the author was telling us more than she was showing us what was happening.

Plot Thoughts:

I freaking loved the plot. It was fun and interesting and full of mysteries that the readers uncover slowly. I did find that the ending was slightly weak. In this case, what was written didn't one hundred per cent make sense to me. This book is filled with swoon-worthy moments and moments that will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen next. 

Character Thoughts:

The characters in this book weren't strong. They were accessible and pulled the reader deeper into the book but as individuals, they lacked substance. Rose was accessible not only because she loved reading but much like myself, she planned every aspect of her life. Or at least that is what we were told. The characters were given characteristics and habits but we very rarely saw them act upon them.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, this book was not perfect. However, I couldn't put it down. I was constantly gushing to my friend about what was happening and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. This book was fun and light-hearted but it also had some depth to it. I loved the relationship between Rose and Theo. This book is absolutely perfect for those who want a quick and fluffy read. Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,
