myself to a man. Well, technically, I promised myself to a boy. We were eight
years old. Neighbours. He gave me a Cheezel, pushed it onto my finger, and
asked me to marry him.
I ate the
said, “Yes” but that we’d have to wait until we were thirty.
It was my
thirtieth birthday last week and now he’s calling in that promise.
Elliot Parker is insane if he thinks
that an out of the blue private Facebook message stipulating the binding law of
an oral contractual agreement is going to seal our twenty-two-year bullshit
I wonder if
he really does look like his profile picture, though.
Plight is the first book that I have read from K.M. Golland! Once I read the synopsis, I knew I had to read this book! I was instantly intrigued, and in love with the cover. Plight is a fun, romantic story full of laughter and witty banter.
Danielle was a character full of love and fear. She had one rule and one rule only. Never sleep with friends. She had learned that lesson more than once. When Elliot pops back into her life out of no where, that rule becomes very hard for her to follow. But boy, does she try. When Elliot first contacted her, it was completely in an unorthodox way. I could understand why she was creeped out by him. But seeing each other for the first time, sparks flew. Memories came. She missed the friendship she had with her best friend.
Elliot hasn't seen Danielle in seventeen years. With the the gardening project coming up, he needed Danielle's help. Feelings hit Elliot so hard when he saw her again. Feelings from his past came back. He made a vow to himself that he wasn't going to lose her again. He was a force to be reckoned with. Danielle tried to fight him, but even she couldn't do it. I really loved Elliot. He hasn't been able to give his heart out to anyone, because Danielle always had it. But, Elliot lives with regret and a lot of pain. He really needed to forgive himself, but I felt like I never did see or feel that he did. And that was something that needed to be worked out before they could work on their relationship.
Elliot made a huge mistake. Said something to their mothers that he couldn't take back. It would literally crush their hearts. So a game was being played. I loved both of their mothers!! They were so hilarious! I laughed so many times due to them. They would know everything about Danielle and Elliot somehow.
I enjoyed this story, but a few things felt a little off to me. This story was very fast-paced. I had trouble connecting with Danielle and Elliot, because I felt as if I didn't know them. Their relationship even moved so fast. I also felt as if I was left with a lot of unanswered questions. Situations not resolved. Even the ending through me for a loop. After what they have went through, they just immediately get back together under the tree. Nothing was worked out. With Danielle I was waiting on her to discuss her fears and what was going on. Same with him. Nope. Nothing was discussed at all. They had a huge breakup and immediately got back together. That was just so unbelievable to me. I wanted to see and feel more.
Plight is a story about two childhood best friends who find their way back to each other. And that is what really caught my attention with this story. Even though I wanted to love and connect with it more than I did, I still enjoyed it. I will be checking out K.M. Golland's other books!!
$2.99 for a VERY limited time!
