Drew by Giulia Lagomarsino
My rating: 2 of 5 stars.
I was looking forward to Drew’s story when I read about him in Jack’s book. He was such a great friend to Harper and such an ongoing mystery man in the rest of the books so far that I couldn’t wait for his story, but I was pretty disappointed in this. Given that Jack and Harper broke her door having sex the first day they met and Logan and CeCe were getting steamy in the club right off the bat, I was sort of disappointed that this was such a slow burn.
We knew that Drew was getting over a relationship, it turns out that he was married and his wife died of Cancer over 6 years ago. He meets his new neighbor Sarah who is also mysterious and turns out to be pregnant but will not give up details on her situation. So I can see why this would be more of a slow burn. Two people getting over old loves, especially with one pregnant. However, who wants to read a romance where the entire book is two people pining over other people instead of being hot for each other.
The pining, the guilt, the sorrow the lost love. There was only one or two scenes that really showed attraction between these two characters, otherwise they seemed like two good friends that just became comfortable together because they were both lonely. The one love scene basically just said they made love and that was it. So disappointing and not sexy. I struggled through the book till the end and wish I hadn’t. I want to read about Sebastian but now am a bit wary.
