*REVIEW* TWO ROADS By L.M. Augustine
The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers.
Ever since Cali's parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better--and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. It doesn't hurt that he's part of the reason her brother is dead, either. So Cali hates him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life.
But when Cali's parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty.
And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren't that obnoxious after all...
Two Roads is a New Adult Romance containing some language and mild sexual content. It is a standalone book.
There comes a moment in every bloggers life where they want to hug an author.There are a select few that I would love to hug and do a happy dance with Im pleased to add L.M Augustine in that group.
Two roads is the story of Cali and Logan.They hate each other.But at the same time they don't. These two go full blown prank wars on each other but with one blind date their worlds are turned upside down as the two get to know each other.
I don't want to compare authors But I will say Watch out Book world because Here comes L.M Augustine.This story was way too short for me and it wasnt even short so don't think that!Its that it was THAT good.I didn't want it to end.Seriously.I may have cried.Okay I did.Two Roads brought me out of my book funk that I've been in for a little bit.It was refreshing and wonderful to read.I feel in love with the characters and they were both on each others level.Neither overpowered each other.Simply put You will fall in love with Logan and Cali.
The writing was superb.The story flowed so smoothly.I LOVED the poety.Im not a poetry lover either,so that was a surprise that I actually read it and didnt just skim through the poerty part.There is a part where Logan and Cali are sitting on a roof and Logan just bares his soul and I swear.Be still my heart.
I was swooning majorly.If you haven't been watching out of L.M. Augustine you better.I truly believe he is going to be the next big thing.Now if I could just get L.M. to write more books I will be in heaven.You.Must.Read.Two.Roads.This is for sure going on Le'BookSquirrels TOP 2013 list.In short It left me in pure Book Bliss.I may not recover.
