Blue Skies (T.L. Martin)

This book was provided to me for free by the author in exchange for an honest review. And I’m really grateful because this book was simply amazing although I wished for some more chapters at the end… 🙂

Do you know the feeling when you read a book and you can’t stop reading but at the same time you want to stop because you don’t want it to end?
Well this book definitely got me into this conflict and as you may guess the ‘couldn’t stop reading’ part won. This book was simply amazing.
I read a lot of books in the last time and they were good, had good characters and you could somehow imagine the scenery. But with this book I could really get myself into the characters. I could totally get their decisions – although at one point I wished for a different one. I could get why Blue did what she did but I could also get Joshua and I felt so badly with and for both of them.
I’m definitely not someone who starts crying easily when reading a book but with this one I cried through the last chapters. I even cried when I tried telling my mum and husband about Blue and Joshua.
I’m pretty sure now you want me to tell you some of the plot, so let’s do it in some sentences. But just really briefly because I think you should read this book on your own if you are into drama.
First of all let me state that although it’s about two teenagers the book is definitely an 18+ one because of all the stuff those guys have to go through.
The book is told out of two perspectives – Blue’s one and Joshua’s one.
Let’s start with Blue. She is 18 years old, grew up in the middle of California, was homeschooled and had one and ergo best friend called Benji. She has just gotten to know her Dad to whom she is moving for a while at the beginning of the book.
Joshua is 18 too, lives in the pool house of Blue’s dad and is a kind of closed guy. Blue is the only one who he lets into his life. And they both fall deeply into each other.
During the story we get to know both of their lives and how they became the people they are. They have to deal with a parent who turns his back to his child and wife, with addiction, dementia, depression, suicide and struggling through life. Both of them have to find their way through their problems and have to learn standing on their own feet before they can finally find their HEA. The question is: Will they make it?
Spoiler alert: Course the do 🙂
And here’s the one point I’d criticize – I’d wished for at least two more chapters about their happy life together after they finally got each other – about their first evening together (I’m sure Blue took Joshua with her to her family’s movie night…) about their first time making love – like real making love and them just being them again.
