Book Review: Vertical Lines (The Vert Series #1) By Kristen Kehoe

Vertical Lines
(The Vert Series #1)
By Kristen Kehoe

An artist and a smart girl.
A staid family and a broken one.
She’s adorably literal; he’s big and quietly emotional.

Jordana Richards was determined to make the best of her post high school life, despite the fact that nothing about her current college experience was of her choosing: not the school or the major, and definitely not the place. But it wasn't home, so that's something. Yet, the harder she tried to fit in, the less she felt like she did.

Until the night she said screw it.

Until the night she walked out on her parents and bought her very own piece of cake.

The same night she met Brooklyn Novak: brooding artist, huge man, overall scary human being who took a keen interest in her.

Brooklyn was out of ideas. He had no art, because really, his subjects had no soul. When the girl at the convenience store clicked her way into his life on five hundred dollar shoes and the fumes of a tantrum, this changed. Jordana Richards: the rich girl with a mission who gave Brooklyn the spark he needed to create again.

Uncomfortable with their attraction, Brooks and Jordan strike a deal: he'll help her have fun, she'll be his muse for as long as he needs. Simple.

Yeah right.

The more time they spend together, the more both of them realize that what started out as a convenient relationship is now transitioning to vital, and neither knows how to deal with it.

When a truth comes to light that has the potential to break both of their worlds, Jordan and Brooks have to decide how deep their feelings really go, and just how much they are willing to sacrifice in order to be together.

My Review:

What a sweet and well written book. I can't tell you exactly what I adored in this book, but I can tell you that I'm so glad I picked it up. The pacing of it all was fantastic and the character's are so very lovable.

Jordana (AKA Jordan) is used to being told what to do and how to act. She's supposed to be the perfect woman, with the perfect life and study for something her family approves of. After a dinner gone wrong she starts to rebel. Not in the sense of drugs and all that other nonsense. She meets a guy that makes her want to get out of the shell created by her mother and actually live like a college student should and have friends that like her for her and not for what she could represent to their future. I loved how she found her backbone and stuck to it during the entire novel.

I loved Brooklyn (AKA Brooks) until the last 3 chapters. As much as I understand where he was coming from, I just can't imagine I'd be OK with something like that, when I look at it from Jordan's point of view. He was awesome until that breaking point and, to me, he was never the same. One thing I liked right off the bat was his love of art (painting, drawing, photographing). Too bad he did what he did at the end.

This book also features a character who has the equivalent of body dysmorphia. Throughout the novel, you see how bad it gets and how everyone suffers right along with that person. At the end of the day it's something that's in their head and there's no amount of therapy and medication that will make it get better. It's a sad reality that only gets worse with the media's involvement. The acknowledgments from the author says something that's very true, "Be brave; be strong; be in love with yourself, first and foremost".

My Favorite Quotes:

"Remembering that beauty isn't one thing. It isn't one person. It's features, personalities, ideas, beliefs. It's confidence."

"Sometimes we need a reminder that life is easier than we think."

"I know well that dreaming can only give us what we want for so long before gravity drags us back down and forces us to live in the world we have created."

Top Ten Tuesday: Six Books That Have Been On Your Shelf...

Hiya My Little Predators!!

Welcome back to the Top Ten Tuesday meme!!

A weekly feature created By The Broke and the Bookish

This Week's Topic:
Six Books That Have Been On Your Shelf
From Before You Started Blogging That
You STILL Haven't Read Yet...

* All titles linked to Goodreads.

1. Windswept (The Airborne Saga #3) By Constance Sharper

I'm pretty sure this novel either took 'too long' to release in my opinion at the time or I simply lost interest but the second novel ended with a cliffhanger.

This series is VERY long winded and I started losing myself by Book #8. I am considering starting to reread all of them so I get the full story back to back, but it hasn't happened yet....

I remember thinking the first book in this series was the best book I had read in a long time, but it's sequel kept changing release dates and time was passing. When it finally released I had lost interest.

I read the first book and liked it, but the end either made me angry or it ended in a kind of sort of cliffhanger and I just HAD to find out what happens next. Fast forward to when this finally released I don't even remember why I was so hyped up about it anymore...

I adored the first novel in this series.
The second one I could have lived without.
I'm still scared to read this third one.

I remember loving the first novel, but I seemed to have lost interest after that. I even have this as an audio book, but I still can't seem to pick this back up....
