While the romance itself was quite sweet, but I couldn’t help but notice something was missing from this novella. I thought the concept was great, who doesn’t like a childhood sweetheart story? I really enjoy reading about the special connection between Lucy and Jet. However at the same time I felt everything I read merely touched the surface of their relationship. And I was looking for more details and elaboration, I want to understand why and how they fall in love, and what makes their love special.
Because this novella was quite short, it breaks down into short chapters, which give you a cursory glance of Lucy and Jet’s past and present. Although the “past” chapters give you some idea of their history, and why was their relationship special. But the way they were written it was more about telling you instead of showing you. The “present” chapters were equally desultory and when it ended it felt incomplete, which leaves me wanting more. Overall I like the idea of this novella, but I wish there was more to it. Will there be more of Lucy and Jet? I really hope so. Happy Reading!! XO
