New Adult Romance
All Moya Douglas wants to do is study hard, maintain her scholarship, and make her mother proud while attending college. She doesn't have time for a boyfriend or going on dates arranged by her best friend. Moya doesn't believe in love. And she has no intention of ever finding it.
Branden McCarthy is determined to change her views.
A selfless romantic who's had his heart broken in the past, Branden is fascinated with Moya's personality and hopes to develop something real with her—a connection so strong it'll open her heart. But just when things start to work between the two, Branden’s secret threatens to get in the way.
Will Moya finally do the impossible and give love a chance with Branden, or will fear keep them apart?
I received a copy of this book for the tour stop I hosted back in October and I finally got around to reading it. I'm so glad I did! I absolutely loved the author's writing - her word choices were beautiful.
I'm pretty new in the NA genre, and I recommend this book for other readers looking to bridge into the area- Impossibly Love is totally clean and easy to get through even for a younger reader like me.For a relatively short book, a lot happened in it, which made for a well paced and fun read. However, there were certain plot points that I didn't buy.
For example, I found Moya's feelings about love really understandable considering her past, but I didn't make sense to me that she was completely adamant to not date at all... with horomones running wild in college, that didn't strike me as very realistic. Also, in the novel Branden discovers some dark secrets in his immediate family that in my opinion should have impacted his character or the plot in some way- he didn't react to the information at all.
Something I liked about the book was that Moya is black, but that it's not stated directly in the book. Since when is the default white? You only know because of the cover and certain hints. So kudos to you, Shane Morgan.
Rating: 3.5 stars (So I figured out how to cut the star, but it won't save or copy. Go figure.)
Have a great weekend people, and a wonderful spring!
