LINES WE FORGET BY J.E. WARREN - BOOK REVIEW

Hello everyone!

I am back with another book review this week, I know, it's my third one but I'm trying to plough through all the review books I have!

Today, I am reviewing Lines We Forget by J.E. Warren. Thanks so much to the author for providing me with an eARC for review. All opinions are my own.










Ok, where do I start? I really enjoyed this book. I found it had just the right amount of fluff, without being mind-numbing.

Let's talk about the two main characters, Charlie and Anna. Charlie is your quintessential, blond, British, guitar playing, singing male lead. He is witty and smart, and I knew from the very beginning that I was going to like him. Anna, on the other hand, is a little snarky, and at times, was a little bit annoying. I just found that Charlie was putting more work into the relationship, and she kept putting herself first. Now, I'm not saying that she should bend herself to Charlie's wishes, but she just kept making decisions based on her pride that effected both of them, but didn't take into consideration what his feelings would be.

This was your typical insta-love set up, but it didn't feel insta-lovey. They saw each other from afar and decided to get a coffee. It wasn't like they met, fell in love instantly and got married the next day, but it was a fairly quick meeting. I think, just because of the way the story is written, you can feel the tension and chemistry, even before they meet. Their relationship started quick, and went well, and then there was a misunderstanding, they got back together, then another argument, etc. Like I said, it was a very typical layout for a contemporary.

I do think, however, that this story was still good. The issues they had, they weren't petty issues. They were real-life, could happen to anyone issues. That being said, this was still a fairly light read, I read it in pretty much three sittings, staying up way to late for two of them, in the span of around 24 hours. It's the perfect, quick contemporary read that doesn't make you ball your eyes out, but it isn't so dramatic and reused that it makes you want to throw the book across the room.

Ok, this has been kind of an all over the place review, but trust me, if you are looking for a book with some funny moments, some serious moments, and is a fairly quick read, this is the book for you!
