COLOR ME YOURS BY DIANA T. SCOTT - BLOG TOUR AND BOOK REVIEW

Hello everyone!

I am back with another blog tour! I am so excited to be a part of the Half of Me blog tour, if you've been following me for a while, you will know I read and reviewed the first two books in this series Our Demons, Best Friends and Love Me While I'm Gone a little while ago, and have been loving this series.


Today, I am bring you a review of the third and final book Color Me Yours by Diana T. Scott. Thank you to the author for sending me an electronic copy of this book for an honest review. As always, all opinions are my own.


Ok, so I did enjoy this final book, but I didn't love it as much as the others.

This story centres around Paige and Miles, who are both working at the same hospital in Chicago. Paige is quiet, shy, and has become pretty good at doing what other people want, as a result of her previous relationship. Miles is an all-around good guy, helping out his sister when he can, and even though his father is rich, he resolves to support himself.

Because this series has three books that are set along the same timeline, just with different couples, there was some of this book that was repetitive to the first two. The same could be said for LMWIG but I found it more prominent here and I think the reason for that was, a) it was the THIRD time some things were happening, and b) we didn't really have a huge, major issue keeping the couple apart. In ODBF, Ava and Sebastian have serious issues, Sebastian especially, that they need to work through as a couple and as individuals. In LMWIG, Emily and Collin have to reconnect after a time apart, and the drama that caused. In this book, we get a small snippet of Miles' "issue" at the beginning but other than that, this book is mainly just their day-to-day lives. In that sense, we got more of the 'normal' life leaking through that we kind of saw in the first two books. Obviously some stuff was new, the things only Miles and Paige did, but I definitely found it more noticeable.

I also think part of my issue with this book was that we already knew Paige and Miles were going to get together in the end. I don't have my copy of ODBF in front of me, but if memory serves, they are a couple at the end of book one. This book just goes back and fills in the gaps. However, I just felt like some of the chemistry wasn't there, there was less anticipation, because I knew how it was going to end. Even with the curveball with Ellie near the end, I still knew they would work things out.

Now, don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this book, and as a series it is fantastic! A New Adult series that has more than just steamy scenes, it was a nice change. I'm just not sure I loved this book.

I did like Miles better than I did Paige, I just found Paige a little bit, much, at times. I don't really know how to describe it. She was kind of all over the place, some days she was down, other days she was joyful. She developed feelings for Miles, and then for some weird reason, when he tried to step things up, she rejected him because she thought he needed a friend. I preferred Miles, he was a great guy, helped everyone out, even when he didn't necessarily need to. He had his head on a little bit better than Paige did as well.

I do feel a little bad that I didn't love this book as much as I wanted to, and for not making this book sound spectacular, but this is my honest review and even though I didn't love it doesn't mean you won't. I think I just had such high expectations for it because of the first two, and looking at the reviews, I am a bit of a black sheep. I still love this series, and definitely recommend you read these books if you are interested, the first two books especially.
