There’s a difference between falling and letting go.
Lauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl lusts after. So why is she so unhappy?
It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: she’s been holding back. She’s been denying herself a bunch of things because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the “right” thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect guy?
But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren simply can’t see herself in - and as Lauren’s craving for Evan and, moreover, who she is with Evan becomes all more fierce - Lauren realises she needs to make a choice…before one is made for her.
This was a quick, fun and light read and I loved it. There was something about Elizabeth Scott's writing that drew me in from the very first page. I read it all in one sitting; I couldn't drag myself away from it!
All of the characters are very well developed and real. They each seemed to have their own lives and history's that ran along side Lauren's story. One of the things I liked most about Bloom was Evan. There was something about him that really appealed to me!
I can't recommend this enough. Elizabeth Scott writes beautifully and takes you on a ride of so many different emotions that you could read all night and not notice. It was a beautiful book and I can't wait to read the rest of her novels.
