Positive/Negativity by D.D. Lorenzo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
~I received an ARC from Book Enthusiast Promotions in exchange for an honest review~
Aria Cole has just lost her father to heart disease and is trying to get herself out of grieving by staying at her Aunt and Uncles' house up in Maryland. She walks the beach every morning. She gains strength from the waves. She gains power from the rising sun. And she gains the mighty fine attention of Declan Sinclair. Oh Declan how can a world famous supermodel have such a huge heart? From the first moment he sees Aria he knows she is something more than just special. She's going to be his. Things are going great for the couple. They have great friends. They have some great laughs and they quickly fall dependent upon each other to survive in the world. But we all know life can't be perfect. In walks Marisol Franzi. Latin supermodel. She's self centered. She takes what she wants when she wants it no matter the price that must be paid. And she wants Declan. Things start to unravel for the happy couple and not for the better.
I hate Marisol. She's quite wicked and there is definitely something wrong with her brain for her to not get it though her head that Declan isn't interested. I understand that she wants the unattainable, but most of the time she just seemed so pathetic. I just wish Aria wasn't on the backlash of Marisol's cruel comments so much.
I think DD Lorenzo writes very well, but I think there's a lot of fluff when chapters could be narrowed down to get the main ideas. I skimmed a lot of parts because it felt like certain areas of the book were just going on and on. And there's a Cliffy at the end so now I've gotta wait until Spring 2014 to read the next book... How will I go on??
Overall I think DD Lorenzo has major potential as an upcoming author. I can't wait to see what she brings the audience next!! And book 2!! Spring 2014 come on already!!
