I read the first book in this series, Pieces of Olivia, when it first came out and was very excited to learn that there was going to be I put Miles from Kara on my to read list and on my radarand then life got busy like it always seems to do and well, my to do list becomes of a wishful thinking list and I haven t had the chance to read as much as I d like.
SOOOOOwhen I got the ARC, I was super excited and jumped on this title like I jump on cupcakes.
For those of you that know me in real life, you know I am pretty even keeled and introverted, so I do have to confess that in the first book, my relationship with Kara wasn t the best She is bubbly and outgoing and cuteso I was giving her serious side eye reading Olivia s story But then I started to notice things and realize that Melissa West was doing what al
Thank you to Penguin books via Netgalley for the free review copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
Did I like this book In a word, yes This is an enjoyable read, and while it wasn t my favourite New Adult book, it is far from the bottom of the pile.
What we ve got here are some decent characters, namely Kara and Colt, who ve both got some baggage, but since the story is told from Kara s point of view, we are privy mostly to her issues While I liked Kara and empathized with her, I didn t love her the feels just weren t there for me It s too bad, because other than this lack of connection with Kara, I felt that the book was quite well done The setting sounded great, the plot was well paced, and the supporting characters were interesting Will you like this book I guess it depends on whether you connect with the main character or not, but I thin Miles From Kara es el segundo libro de la saga Charleston Haven escrita por Melissa West y narra la historia de Kara personaje secundario en el libro anterior y Colt.
Sinceramente inicie este libro por no dejar a medio esta peque a serie, ya que cuando lei la sinopsis de esta novela no me parecio nada original o novedoso, todo lo contrario, me recordo a varios libros que ya habia leido pero tengo que admitir que esta lectura no se me hizo tan cuesta arriba como esperaba.
La historia se lee practicamente sola sobretodo despues de los diez primeros capitulos , ademas de tener una pareja protagonista que aunque predecible, es agradable y linda.
Colt y Kara tienen una relacion que me gusto desde el comienzo, es cierto que no sorprende pero me parecio una relacion bonita, madura y sana algo que no siempre pienso de las relaciones que encuentro en los libros que leo.
