|4.5 Always Nathan & Charlotte Stars
The Charlotte Chronicles is book #1 in the Jackson Boys Series and the first book I have read by this author. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes.
God this book!!!
I laughed and I cried!!!
This book starts out heartbreakingly sweet; Charlotte, Nick and Nate are teenagers. I love that even at 17 Nate was claiming Charlotte as his.
I loved 17yr old Nate he’s a child pretending to be a man but he’s so endearingly cute. It’s obvious that he loves Charlotte but they are just so young I mean she’s only 15!!!
God the letters!!! For so many years!!! Nate is an idiot!!!
To be honest I hated Nate after that, I honestly was just devastated for her, I just don’t understand how he could do that. I mean they were Nate and Charlotte!!!!
This book completely suckered me in I read it cover to cover without putting it down (yes it even came to the bathroom too lol) I really wasn’t sure how this book would play out!!
I’m having to be a bit vague because I don’t want to give away a spoilers but Christ 9 years!!!!!
I LOVED the intensity in Nate in part two. It’s like he came out of a haze of stupidity with a single minded purpose and he had no doubt that he would succeed or die trying!!! Let’s be honest that’s incredibly sexy!!!
Personally I can’t believe how easily she let him off, she never even slapped him and if anyone ever deserved a slap it was him!!!!
Bloody hell though the sex!!!! Talk about sparks flying!!!
This book takes you through the full roller coaster of emotions I was happy and laughing and then angry. For a minute I was slightly outraged but also mortified and sad, hell this book even made me cry!!!
At the end of the day they were always Nathan & Charlotte!!!
I’m hoping Nick gets his own book cause that’s going straight on my TBR list!!
The Charlotte Chronicles gets 4.5 stars from me.
But when I close my eyes, I can see him—and me. I can see me pressed up against the mirror in the bathroom, my hands making starfish prints as I brace myself against his thrusts. I can hear his harsh breathing, his commands to come, come now, Charlotte. There was that passage of time that felt endless when he was between my legs, licking me softly and leisurely as if there wasn’t anything in this world that gave him more pleasure than helping me find my own. I touch myself, but it’s useless. My body wants one thing: Nathan Jackson.
I’m on fire and the ache of want is so acute it’s like a knife in my chest. I’ve had multiple surgeries, chemo treatments, radiation but that’s nothing compared to what I feel now.
Time and distance had dulled my pain and that my desire and love for Nathan had actually started to ease only to be stoked into high, hot flames by his reappearance in my life.
He is the poison and the antidote.
