Lengths - Steph Campbell, Liz Reinhardt “This is part of me now?”“It can mean whatever you want it to mean. Like, maybe it means that you can’t change the past. You can’t right the wrongs. But, I don’t know, you can try to make something meaningful of the future, you know?”Sounds deep but I’ll say that perhaps the author was trying to skip around some depressing subjects in a light hearted way. Overall, I’d consider this a typical romance, spiced up by some steamy scenes with two almost likeable characters. Deo seemed sweet over Whit but I still didn’t get that hot damn, swoonable vibe out of him. Then there’s Whit who, well, annoyed me most of the time. Admittedly, most female leads irritate me in some way. Why? Well, in this case, I thought her reasons to avoid a loving relationship with Deo were weak. What Whit!?? You can’t date a guy you actually like because it doesn’t follow your plan to live life to the fullest? Oh! (palm to forehead) That’s right, it does make perfect sense to only want f@ck buddies. F@ck buddies make the world go round while giving you cake and letting you eat it too. I just couldn’t relate the characters and the “conflict” or the insta-love connection but it was an easy read. Thank goodness for the makeout sessions. Those at least kept the pages turning beyond the fluff. Perfect for something at the beach or that doesn’t require more than one eye open and half brain function.
