He was right. It made no difference whether it was 6 months or 6 years.
I couldn’t undo what had been done. I couldn’t change the future.
I couldn’t even predict it.
It was one night.
One night when everything changed.
It was so much more than just the betrayal.
It was the Tragedy.
But it was also that feeling.
The feeling of falling.
SPECIAL REVIEW ALERT! I loved this book so, so much I am going to do an interview as a review!!! First time so bear with me! All answers are from the book and not made up! I promise there are NO SPOILERS! Okay here we go!
Me: Hi Ms. Jones! Thanks for agreeing to meet with me! (Technically, I had to drag her here…prying her away from Jake was nearly impossible)
Mikayla: Micky…call me Micky…please.
Me: Okay Micky! *clears throat* I know you’ve heard this many times in the book, but I am so, so sorry for that night. I just…just can’t imagine what you must have felt. What you still feel.
Mikayla: *her eyes are brimming with unshed tears* It was one night. One night when everything changed. It was so much more than just the betrayal. It was the tragedy. The deaths. The murders. But it was also that feeling. That feeling of falling.
Me: *opens and closes mouth…I mean, what can you say to that?* Wow, what an eloquent way of describing a tragic night. Micky, I…wait, feeling of falling? Falling deeper into a pit? Or falling in love with….
Mikayla: *blank stare, no answer*
Me: Okaaaay then, I take that as “read the book to find out.” *mutters* Micky, what was you reaction when you first saw Jake, um, after that incident?
Mikayla: I can’t believe accent boy just witnessed that whole thing. I’m so fricken embarrassed by all of it. Mainly because I was the dumb girl that just got played for so long.
Me: Yes…Believe me if I was there, my first move would be to bash a certain someone’s nuts. He completely deserved it. Moving along, how is Jake’s family? They certainly played a huge role in your life and in the book. Just curious to know how you’re taking it all in…
Mikayla: It hurts less today then it did yesterday. Because being here, being with them, it’s familiar in a good way…Jake, he makes things hurt a little less. He…he’s home for me right now. He’s my Jake. And I’m his Kayla.
Me: *sniffle* Oh yes, I understand. *romantic sigh* (Is it just me, or did the air get really heavy in here??) Oh Micky!!! I have to ask this question!! I absolutely ADORE Lucy! She’s literally my favorite character, well, after you hehe. What’s your most memorable impression of her? Care to share?
Mikayla: “I swear to god, Micky. I’ll cut a bitch for you, just let me go, Cam. Let me go!” *snickers*
Me: *laughs* Oh, I so remember that scene! That chick cracks me up! And she reads! What an awesome buddy! I’d love a Lucy in my life, especially a drunk one! Okay, as we are winding down, I have the most serious question to ask you, and I'm not the only one who wants an answer. Are you ready?
If you could describe Jake in one sentence, what would you say? *leans forward to hear answer*
Mikayla: I feel sorry for all the girls in the world that never get to experience a Jake Andrews at least once in their lifetime.
Me: HOLY. SHIT. Me too...*plotting a character kidnapping* If only I had one of those…*wink* Well, thank you so much Micky! I’m so glad I got a chance to speak with you!
Mikayla: Okay then, thank you!
Me: AAAAAAND CUT! *turns to you* Thanks for being part of the audience! I hope you enjoyed listening to Micky as much as I did!
Thoughts the second time I read it
I read this first in August and can I say WOW! I’ve highlighted pages and pages of epic quotes and all I did was just look at them and –boom – I’d remember exactly what the scene was or what the characters were doing. Like the first time I read it, this book grabbed me by the collar and dragged me in until I finished! Could. Not. Put. Down. So don’t even try to read it unless you’re prepared to finish it in one sitting! Jay McLean, you are my hero! Cannot wait for Logan’s story!
