Bloom by Elizabeth Scott

Ok, I know I said I was going to post stuff during Winter Break and I never did... I'm sorry!!! I really have no excuse. I was just LAZY. Well I'm back and I've read tons of books since the last time I posted something! Thank god for Christmas. Alright here we go!

There's a difference between falling and letting go.

Lauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl lusts after. So why is she so unhappy?
It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: She's been holding back. She's been denying herself a bunch of things (like sex) because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the "right" thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect boyfriend?
But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren simply can't see herself in — and as Lauren's craving for Evan, and moreover, who she is with Evan becomes all the more fierce — Lauren realizes she needs to make a choice...before one is made for her.

Wow!! This book already sounded amazing from just reading the back!! And it was! My best friend Jenna bought this book for me for Christmas and I LOVE it. I loved it SO much I went out and bought Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott. Mostly because at the very end of bloom, they let you read like two chapters and her next book. I did and got hooked to Perfect You. Anyways, Lauren is a bit annoying to me. Some of the things she did just seemed kind of wrong... But I guess you'll do anything for love right? Dave (Laurens boyfriend) seems like a great guy! He was like the perfect boyfriend! But that's obviously not what Lauren wanted and that's totally ok. Katie (Laurens best friend) is really cool. She has a lot of crap going on at home but she's also got an awesome boyfriend! She had such a great bubbly personality. Through the whole book, Lauren feels like she can't tell Katie about Evan. She feels that Katie will tell her to forget about him and want her to keep Dave and stay cool. Lauren just wants to have fun and Dave is just boring. This book really teaches you about friendship and trust. I recommend this to EVERYONE! READ IT!!!
Im rating this book a...
Because it was great!
It wasn't the best, but it was good. There
are alot of books with the same type of plot but I
like it! It may not be original, but
it was worth it :)
