We see plenty of past characters-Jess, Riley, Rory, and Tyler. He's dark, broody, but surprisingly sensitive. She's never dated and didn't have many friends.
Believe is book three in the new adult romance series True Believers. I am a sucker for strong girls who become stronger throughout the book. But that's what it is. Again, Erin McCarthy brought so much to the pages of this story. And he seemed to be musing about the past more than anything. She turned into a big time party girl and ended up doing the one thing she never thought she'd do-sleep with Nathan, her best friend's boyfriend.
I loved Jayden and wished longer scenes where he shows his dog shaming photo collection. The circumstances made it impossible to hold this against Robin, and in fact she beats herself up more than any other person could. Oh, why did I put you down? Robin has spent the majority of college partying hard and loose. I don't care if he is your soul-mate or whatever. However, the badies were really really badly written. I found I liked the characters more than the story itself.
A quick read with a delicious bad boy that will have you falling in love right along side Robin. I just felt it was way to early. A Young Adult Romance that had me captivated, that was fun and moving to read. So when she meets the hero, Phoenix, who is fresh out of prison, she doesn't judge because she knows she is in no position to call herself better than anyone else. She was in the kitchen, and now that she was wearing a tank top and tiny stretchy shorts, I could see her body much better than when she had been swimming in that T-shirt and denim shorts. He has anger issues and this time they landed him in jail. Later, I tried to look back and figure out why I had slid so easily into party girl, but all I could come up with was maybe I just wanted a louder voice, and drinking gave me that.
So there you have it. We don't really know much about Robin from the previous novels she's barely mentioned in True and only in a few scenes from Sweet , and Phoenix is mentioned in passing and not even by name. Her only solace now is her painting. Resolutely, I closed my eyes and counted backwards from one hundred. It's that first taste of freedom, booze, sex - lots of firsts.
Erin McCarthy has managed the transition quite well. I liked and sympathized with Robin, even when I found her actions problematic in turns. Do stupid things that you laugh about the next day and take pictures that will prevent you from ever being a senator. When Robin and Phoenix meet at The Mann brother's house, their attraction happens very quickly. These boys had a really crappy life, but they held their family together. I appreciated the build up too. When Tyler saves her Rory sees him in a whole new light.
No surprise there as I have done this same exact thing multiple times now. This might be my only chance to hang out with her. To be in love is easy, to make it work is not always as easy. The storyline and romance blend together effortlessly, elevating each other with a few plot twists to add to the overall tension. Robin is so flattered that she gets a tattoo as well.
I loved True so much, that when Believe came out, I read it in a day. It's why she was sad. You are dating someone who just came out of prison - wouldn't you want to know how dangerous he was? One of the biggest problems were its dialogues. I was pulling for this couple to make it work despite the family pressures they had. We get the whole cast; Tyler, Rory, Riley, Jessica, Jayden, Easten, Kylie, Robin, and Phoenix.
His life has been a real bitch. Then we had the romance between Robin and Phoenix that was pretty good, but basically most of the book was just waiting for the best friend to find out what had happened. He might've been drunk, but he was far more aware of events than Robin. My entire focus was on the piece of shit scrambling to his feet, wiping at his mouth, which was bleeding. I went into her fridge to see if there was any food in there at all I could do something with and to get a blast of cold air. She felt terrible about what she did to Kylie and made no excuses for her actions, which I appreciated.
So it was better if he stayed covered because there was something totally drool-worthy about his muscles and all that skin displaying his bleeding heart tattoo. He was sending her text messages and expecting his girlfriend not to find out! It is like they just gravitate towards one another and their souls literally speak to one another. They weren't always good but at least these 2 were almost consistent! He was just concerned with saving his own sorry ass. It's a rather typical New Adult book with characters falling in love with each other while having to deal with their issues. I wanted to watch him, and I wanted to feel. And then sadly i felt that McCarthy didn't manage to capture the feeling when you draw thing.
