4.25 to 4.5Errmm.. I sorta found out (view spoiler)[who Scratch was the moment... uh... "Scratch without the disguise" showed up. (hide spoiler)] So big yey to my "spoiler self." Anyway, it was a fairly light read. Lots of warm family/pseudo-family moments. The romance was.. uhm... cute. :DI winced every time Vanessa had an episode... all that head-whacking that she did. OTLI was more into reading about Vanessa and Fran than June tbh.
"Your eyes make me..." She smiled then looked away. "I think I like girls."I grinned at the admission and replied simply with, "I think I like you."I've had high expectations for June's story after reading Progeny but this just was not what I really expected specifically with the romance. I like June\s character and one can't really deny the similarity between her and Mandy with the way she thinks and how her mind works. I just didn't can't buy the romance being presented. It felt forced and rushed, eventhough it took time to develop, there's no argument that June was really attracted to Van since the beginning but then the readers wasn't really shown how/what Van felt for June. There was something missing. And is it wrong if I was really more interested with the secondary characters, Kat and Fran? I needed more from Van but it didn't deliver. Their interactions mostly were cute but it felt incomplete.Hooray, just found out about the London Harmony series. Awesome.
Not too BadThis is another entry in Erik Schubach's venerable "Music of the Soul" series. This book differs in the formulae used in all the previous books. before it was "girl meets girl, girls fall in love, but cannot be together, girls have an arguement/falling out, girls make up and get married."In all honesty, I much prefer this take on a relationship as it not only makes more sense, logically speaking, but it shows Mr. Schubach's growth as an author. Unfortunately, this book seems to suffer from more grammar errors than previous books in the series. Add to that, it felt rushed, and, I feel, detracted from what could have been a much tighter and more emotionally satisfying novel.Despite these flaws, I do recommended the book for anyone who is a fan of lesbian literature.
FunAs always Erik has given us another great story to lose ourselves in. I loved the interactions between June and Vanessa, the banter between them as well as the other characters was amusing. I like that June was not judgmental from the very beginning, that she saw the person in Vanessa and not the illness. unfortunately the story was too short for me. I would have liked to learn more about Vanessa and her sister Fran. But as I stated, this was a fun read.n
Another great story in the Music of the Soul Series. Well done, Mr. Schubach.
SqueeeeeeOMG! I LOVE June! And Fran and Vanessa are perfect. I cannot wait until the London Harmony series!!! It is going to be fantastic! Great job, Erik!
The book's main flaw is that it is rushed. (view spoiler)[ From the beginning to end, the romance felt like a complete platonic relationship. We seen June doing a lot of things for Vanessa. We seen June's love for Vanessa. We seen June's romance development for Vanessa. We seen June's accomplishments and many people in her life. Of course, she is the main character. But it sadden me that reader can't really see much of Vanessa perspective. I already gotten used to this author's first person point of view. However, in this particular work, Vanessa's pov proves to be important for this whole romance development to work. PS: I probably gotten used to the author's spelling and grammar errors as well.(hide spoiler)]I also noticed that there are a lot of references to June's accomplishments in which, I absolutely have no idea what it is about.
