Cursive by Phoebe Lane
“A love exchanged effortlessly between two healing hearts.” ~Cursive
Cursive is Phoebe’s debut novel and completely BLEW ME AWAY! I wasn’t sure what to expect because I am the first to write a review and it hasn’t released yet but WOW, I was very impressed! I thoroughly enjoy books with plenty of romance and passion but in order to keep things interesting, I appreciate added aspects such as secrets, suspense, and angst. Cursive was the perfect package of all my favorites! It grasped my full attention from start to finish. As the story progressed, I was slowly solving the mysteries behind Aislynn and Jace.
Speaking of Aislynn and Jace… these two are phenomenal! Individually they hold their own strength but once you get them together, the fireworks begin! Aislynn and Jace are both struggling with their past which keeps them from moving forward. They each have solid walls protecting them and refuse to let their guard down. Even with their pasts holding them hostage, Aislynn and Jace cannot control the attraction they feel for one another.
With the help of their friends, Ellie and Evan, Aislynn and Jace find themselves together on a few ‘non-dates’. The connection they have is comfortable and easy, as though they have been friends for years. I really enjoyed how fun and playful they are, it made them very realistic. Slowly those walls begin to sway and wiggle. Aislynn daydreams about Jace… he is ‘swoon-worthy’. Jace can’t keep his thoughts off Aislynn either. Soon enough they find themselves going on a REAL date.
“You sure know how to impress a girl.”
“Just you. I only want to impress you.”
“Well, it’s working.”
As their relationship develops, it is crystal clear that they are perfect for each other. Jace opens up first and I felt that added another depth to his ‘swoon-worthy’ character. He trusts Aislynn and knows she is different. Aislynn is very protective over Jace and wants to take away his pain. Jace is very attentive and caring. He calms Aislynn, takes away her stress, and grounds her. She is “babydoc” and he is “sexy lips”. I LOVED when Aislynn would be thinking something then realize she said it out loud when Jace would answer her. There are too many endearing little details to count but they really make the story special.
“I had already started living my life in color again, but when you walked in, the colors just exploded. You make my life brighter and in high definition.” ~Aislynn
And oh my goodness… the sex is steamy and plentiful! The scenes are very well written without being crude or crass. Smokin’ HOT while still being tasteful.
I won’t give anything away but their story isn’t free of roadblocks and debris. They both have obstacles to overcome and pain to release in order to fully commit to each other. The secrets they have hidden allow the reader to slowly put the pieces of their puzzle together. The storyline is very well paced and put together. It will keep you interested page after page.
“I know. I screwed up. It’s not easy for me to ask for help. It’s not easy for me to admit that I… I need you. I want you with me.” ~Jace
