Consolation Prize by Linda Kage

* 3.5 Better Then Him Nutella Jars*

Have you ever read a book that surprised and confused you all at once. Lo and behold that's how a I felt while reading this book there's something about this read that made me swoon and curse out in the same sentence, weird I know but that just goes to prove that this book was magic. The thing with interracial couples is a) they're very rare to find and even rarer to pull off and b) we need more of them so much more. Since I've started reading it's hard for me to come across ethnically diverse characters in a time when we should celebrate it and this book filled that special need in me.

Consolation prize as the titles refers was all about Julianna & Colton but let's say Colton is the consolation. After setting her heart on something she couldn't have, Julianna found herself at a wedding , one she regretted attending but with dreadful comes something exciting and in comes Colton Gamble the youngest Gamble brother is here to save a gorgeous goddess the one he can't keep his eyes off of. With his easy going personality & sinister smile Colton was adamant to woo Julianna off her feet but she wasn't going down that path again until maybe giving him a chance go be the start of something incredible.

I don't know. Doesn't that sound... wrong to you?”“Oh, baby doll. Wrong's just the way I like it.”

My Thoughts In The End:

*sigh* what an epic read , now there were so thing I didn't settle on but as always it's not my job to complain when I've had such an amazing experience. In the wise words of Joanne the scammer "Truly , Honestly and seriously" Read this book.

Don't you just hate it when someone destroys all your carefully made plans?

I mean, I had goals: college to graduate in one semester, a future I was working hard to reach, and an image of myself I wanted the world to see. My life was stacked into these precisely placed blocks. But then Colton Gamble came along and knocked them all askew.

I hated how he messed everything up, how he could hog all my attention whenever he was around, how he made my pulse quicken--but only because he ticked me off...not because I was attracted to him. Oh! And I hated how he knew how attractive he was too, the shallow, full of himself, doesn't take no for an answer, too-flirty, too cocky, extremely irritating jerk.

The boy had all the qualities that turned me off. Or so I thought.

One night he wasn't quite the brainless, over-confident jerk I usually took him for.

One night, he took care of me when I was at my lowest. He opened up to me and made me open up to him.

Now I'm learning maybe he's not what I first thought he was. And maybe I'M not what I first thought I was. Maybe it's okay to rearrange a couple of my perfectly set blocks. Maybe, just maybe, I'll stop worrying about what I'm afraid everyone else will think and finally reach for something I really want. It's possible some of my plans need to be destroyed, and Colton Gamble is exactly the kind of mess I need in my life.

What do you think? Should I give him a try?

Desperately seeking your advice,
Julianna Radcliffe
