Everything by Erin Noelle

I love Erin Noelle and I know that she is an absolute mistress of the written word and I have great faith in her to put forward a book that I will absolutely love but when I read the blurb for this one, it really didn’t grab me by the throat at all. I was in two minds as to whether or not it was something that I was going to be able to actually get into.

But because of the author and the way her previous works have appealed to me, I shook off my reticence and thought why not.

But was my internal guide on the right track?

Well, I’m writing the review so that should at least give you the heads up that I finished the book and I am not ranting yet so again that should give you the indication that I have finished the book with an element of calm and consideration.

To be truthful, I was very pleasantly surprised…I absolutely loved the story.

From the first page, I was entranced. I was a little uneasy at first but I hold my hands up in adoration for the quality of the work that the author ploughed into Everett, she nailed him completely and in turn I was converted. His age had seriously concerned me but my concerns soon slipped away and I was wrapped up beautifully in what a simply exquisite story. I was immersed completely in Everett’s life and the situation that he was in, the relationship he formed and all the pitfalls and experiences that when with it.

I don’t want to gloss over anything about the story but I also don’t want to give you any reason not to read it so when it comes to the storyline, you are getting nada from me, not a bean because this one of those rare occasions that the best thing I can say about the details of the story is to say nothing at all.

But when it comes to the book as a body of work, well that is a completely different story because I could wax lyrical all day, this was a beautifully written story of a love that took its time to emerge, fought the angst and drama that was thrown its way, it survived the attitude and expectations that those involved couldn’t help but bring to the page and it did so with the deftest of touches, the placement of just the right word in just the right place and a lilt of expectation and infraction pitched at just the right time.

Overall, I would admit that after a self-induced rocky moment, I was blow away.
