I'm used to going for the easy things in life. The easy A in school. The easy lay in bed. The easy life my trust fund affords me.Until I met Shelby.
Never in my life have I found retro T-shirts and lip balm so damn sexy.She's exactly what I never knew I wanted.And she's anything but easy.
But suddenly, easy is overrated.
Only one damn problem... For Shelby, hating me is easy.
For the first time in my life, I have to work for something. And though she may not be easy...she'll be worth it.
Sometimes you just need a good college romance to get your romance feelers satisfied. At least, sometimes I do. And Blind Spot by Katana Collins totally hit the spot for me. Blind Spot is a new adult college contemporary romance, and I really enjoyed it. I had a little snag with the plot details early on, but the characters more than made up for it. Overall, this was a satisfying romance for me.
Blind Spot is told in dual narrative between Shelby and Tate. Shelby is your classic stubbornly independent college girl. She falls into the new adult stereotype that I have seen a bit too much of. The, had a hard past, but determined to make it on your own- and stubborn to the point where you refuse to accept help of any kind from anyone. It is the last part of the stereotype that irks me. I get wanting to make it on your own. I really do, but being stubborn to a fault is something I could do with less of. Other than that Shelby is a really sweet girl. I totally get why Tate is so smitten with her. And I loved Tate. Yes, he is your classic rich boy used to getting what he wants no questions asked, but I didn’t find him to be a jerk. He is a well rounded character that was really likable in my opinion.
And now for the snag. Shelby worked multiple jobs, and saved saved saved so she could finally afford her first apartment. Which is super awesome!! Except, her first apartment is on the 14th floor (of a 15 floor building) which just so happens to be the newest and safest building in Charleston. One where all of the “trust fund kids” live. She does say it is the smallest one bedroom in the building, but the smallest one bedroom would not be placed on the second best floor of the building and it certainly would not be cheap. I want to know just what kinds of big bucks jobs she is working because that apartment would cost a TON of money. It just bugged me because it seemed so far outside of the realm of possible. But it was a minor detail, and Blind Spot is so character driven, and the characters are done so well that I got over my frustration quickly as I became more immersed in the story.
Bottom line: If you are a fan of new adult college romances and you are a character driven reader, Blind Spot will be a good book for you to check out. The romance is great and the characters are my favorite part of the story. Overall, this was a good read.#review & #giveaway of Blind Spot by @KatanaCollins #newadult Head over to @BookBriefs to enter Click To Tweet
