So disappointed :(
26 January 2019
What I loved about this book.
- The cover, I could image Bodhi as he was exactly the dreamy blue-eyed, gorgeous blond haired guy described.
- I AM a fan of Insta-love because I have experienced it and it exists, so if it's written well I am all in from the first word.
- In the first few chapters, I LOVED Henna's character she reminded me of hippie born into the modern era, she was refreshing and fun and was definitely going to be trouble.
- I liked Bodhi but his character at that stage was more of a mystery, but I LOVED them together as a couple, they seemed to be the Ying and Yang and I was excited to see them explode off the pages as they came together (pun and no pun intended).
What I didn't like.
- Henna and Bodhi met at a music festival at Coachella, she was almost 19 and we don't know how old Bodhi was but suddenly Bodhi took off to get back to his father and Henna and Bodhi's blossoming relationship got soaked by sub-zero freezing waters. Nothing happened other than their off the charts chemistry and some kissing.
- They did meet up again but under very different circumstances and it totally ruined it for me plus I didn't like Henna as a bratty teenager finishing her last year at High School. Things changed and for me, it wasn't for the better.
Where I wanted this story to go.
- This book would have been so much more if after the festival Henna and Bodhi didn't go their own ways but went on a road trip together as Bodhi drove across America on his way home. I would have loved to read about the adventures that they could have had and the memories would have life-changing. Bodhi and Henna could have found out about each other's secrets, hopes and dreams ensuring that their explosive chemistry would have turned into a life-long love story making Henna's off- the cuff remarks at Coachella about their children could have become a reality.
But that didn't happen and I'm deeply disappointed.
