What I liked most about this book is it's honesty. It is not about the fluff of fantasy relationships. It's really raw and gives it to you straight. I lovethe male character Nick, the best because he demonstrates what is normal in guys - not the alpha male and not the pansy, dreamboat most women dream off. He is real. It made me appreciate the realness of love and not the fantasy most people think of in relationships. The book goes through different times in a the couples lives and demonstrates how in real life and in romance intimacy changes and grows - from immature, juvenile puppy love as teens, to crazy passionate lovers in their young twenties through mid-life. It shows that love and romance never really ends, it just changes with time and it's never bad, no never good. It just is and it us beautiful in it's imperfection. I read Jonel's comment below, and to be honest of her "honest" review, that perhaps she was expecting a fantasy romance. Perhaps this is a "3" if you're looking for the generic erotica, but this isn't generic. If you're looking for a fantasy romance, "One with the Wind" isn't for you. I would highly recommend this book for those who want to read about real, honest relationships and romance.
Although quite well written, there’s just something about Livingston’s writing style that I couldn’t get into. The storyline itself was solid enough. It also gets better and better the further into the story you get. It’s a raw look at high school and the peer pressure and self-pressure that come with it. Livingston paints a picture of the world that the characters live in. You can visualise their homes and high school. The characters themselves are also quite well developed. You get to know the main character as a friend you went to school with. The supporting cast is developed on a range of sophistication based on their role in the novel. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
