The rise of the Black Eagles was meteoric, from band practice in the garage to global stars almost overnight. And Melissa Webb, the beautiful girlfriend of the front man, appeared to have it all. But when Luke Black disappears without a trace and Melissa wakes up in a hospital bed after a savage attack, her perfect world is shattered and their lives are plunged into a potentially deadly crisis. Where is Luke, and can he be found before it is too late?
I was surprised by how much I liked this book. The author herself gave me this book in return for an honest review, but at first I thought it wasn't my thing. But I have to say it really is! I've never read New Adult before and I didn't realise it a new adult book until I was halfway through.
But I had a few things that bottered me while reading the book. Melissa was only 20 (turned 21 in the book) and she already live on her own, even though she didn't seem to have problems with her parents. This seems weird to me, because I'm 20, don't have any problems with my parents and I ''still'' live at home. Is this weird or is it just me? I also would have loved it more if the storyline was written in a different way. With that I mean that there are flashbacks in the story (basically Melissa is telling everything that had happened through the past year and everything) and I wished it was just from the moment she and Luke met until the ''big thing'' without knowing what the big thing was. But on the other hand: the way the author told the story seems to fit in as well! Which surprised me. Oh and also, what is it with the ''Oh I love you so much''-thing when two people just have met each other? Yes I think that sometimes as well, but it just gives people hopes about love and also when you have an ex he/she will get back to you eventually, but I wish some authors would mix that up (this is not a spoiler btw!). That was another tthing hat bothered me a little, so that's why I gave this book a 4.75 star rating (instead of a 5).
Overall I think the story was really unique and captivating. I couldn't forget about the characters when I wasn't reading and I had to know what happened. So I highly recommend this one if you want to try something new adult!
