Melody Gage and Jeremy Sauer come alive within the pages of this novel! Melody Gage is a spunky girl who is highly educated at MIT in computer sciences. A nerd to the core, but represented in such a delightful way!
Finally a book that shows women’s empowerment and the importance of education! I loved reading about a smart girl who was invested in her career and when she got where she wanted to be, love followed.
Jeremy Sauer is a rich and sexy bachelor, but not in the least bit snobby. He is sweet and sensitive, and he encourages Melody to pursue her career goals. With his own set of issues of course…
The side characters of the novel also fill the story rather than just hang as empty names in the margins. This book promotes friendship to people different than you, and celebrates being who you are.
The editing was impeccable and the plot line kept the pages flipping. It was easy to eat up this story and I cannot wait until Nix’s new book comes out in October. I will be sure to get my hands on it!
Love scenes were realistic and steamy without being graphic and crude. The romance in this novel just makes you feel warm and fuzzy. The novel makes great allusions to different popular works which makes the novel relatable, while tying each allusion into the story in clever ways.
This book can be recommended to anyone age 15 or above and I highly recommend buying this book for your personal collection. Susannah Nix completely knocked this one out of the park. You will not regret giving this novel a read.
