Someone has watched her every move...
Throughout Arissa's life, she has experienced disturbing cold chills running down her spine, the kind that let a person know something is not quite right. For as long as she can remember, she has sensed she is being watched, but has been utterly unsuccessful in finding the person responsible for making her doubt her sanity. Her hope is that in moving away to college she will have a fresh start and a chance to find herself.
After years spent watching her, now he is developing strong feelings for her. That was never part of the plan, never his intention. Ideally, she would remain unaware of his presence in her life. Of course, life rarely unfolds, as it should. The best-laid plans often unravel. And the best kind of love is completely unexpected.
This book is really hard to explain, but it was extremely interesting. I really liked the idea that she could feel someone watching her from even a young age. I found the prologue adorable. I loved the imagery with Arissa and the butterflies.
This book is a very quick read, I was able to complete it in one setting. I found some aspects of the story a little unrealistic. Her life seemed to be moving too smoothly, and things were so easily given to her. Even with this, I did like the story. It is a unique story that was a fun way to spend my evening.
The only part that really threw me off was just the writing style. It didn't seem to mesh perfectly with me. I'm only one of billions of people in the world though, so I don't realy judge a book that way. Personally, when I read a book that's written in the first person, I expect to be able to immerse myself in the main character. This story seemed more like the first person telling the story than someone living the story. It put me off at first, but I quickly became accustomed to it, and enjoyed it.
The ending (no worries, no spoilers!) really seemed to be the final hook for me. I'm really looking forward to the next instalment. The ending left me wanting so much more!
It's a fun read! Be sure to check it out.
