Marie James is one of my favorite new authors, she has a new release coming out March 10, Kincaid. I can’t wait to read this one! Because of the new release I wanted to share my review of Love Me Like That. It’s the first book of hers that I had read and I instantly fell in love with her writing. I Hope you enjoy!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’d like to start off by saying I received this as an ARC and here’s my honest opinion. Overall I absolutely loved this book! I loved the characters and the depth they have; I loved the deep emotion and how real the characters are. At the very beginning I felt that the multiple series of events that took place were almost predictable. As if starting the book out with this amazing scene and you think oh how cute! Then when all of the crap goes down I kind of figured what was coming. With that being said, A lot of what happened in detail wasn’t predictable and that is what was important.
After the first few chapters (which go by so quick!) there is not a single thing that was predictable. Marie made you work to find out what was coming next. I love a book that really challenges my brain. I want to be left thinking “WHAT THE HECK! WHAT DID YOU JUST DO!”
As a very emotional person I love how the emotions rolled throughout LMLT! I was angry, then sad, then laughing, then confused, then ecstatic. Everything you could want to feel, you felt. In addition to emotion and wonder I was left satisfied. I typically hate when a book ends, but Marie ended this novel so beautifully. It left you thinking but not upset with everyone. It wasn’t abrupt and it satisfied a few curiosities with still keeping you on your toes. Bravo Marie on an amazing piece of work. I’m honored you let me read it!
