The Perception of Reality – Dual Boxset: Tragic Rockstar Romance by Shandi Boyes
I think there should be another star rating for books and authors that simply move past the 5 and put them in a class all of their own, Shandi Boyes is one of these authors (even if I may or may not have called her evil, and other horrendous names while reading these books).
Do yourself a favor and first off, do not read these books out of order, second…You will need tissues, or heavy cotton towels or old tshirts or something because massive ugly crying will be involved.
I’ll be on google today looking for words that might come close to describing some of the feelings and emotions I had while reading this series. I’m convinced I felt things that don’t have official words to adequately describe them. This author is so freaking amazing, she has a talent with putting words together to form an impossible story and this talent is unmatched in my opinion. I have never in all my years of reading cried so hard while reading 2 books back to back.
Without going into too much detail I will say that this, the first part of Emily and Noah’s story was amazing, the flow of this story was awesome because it didn’t stay put if that makes sense. It moves along quickly and smoothly yet allows these two to form a bond like no other, and you actually feel it strengthening as you read. Noah’s history makes it hard to form any kind of relationship and my heart broke for him. Emily had been done wrong in her past and this still haunts her daily. When these two meet you can truly feel the connection and I loved that. Emily is going to school to fulfill her dreams of becoming a teacher, and Noah is the lead singer of his band Rise Up and we get to watch when his band gets their big break. As time moves forward it becomes harder and harder for Noah and Emily to find the time to spend together, yet their love and commitment to each other never wavers.
The second part of their story…There are no words….
If you are reading this hoping I will go into some of the details of the rest of book 1 and then book 2 you might want to move on because I’m not saying one thing about what happened….You have to read this and get the full impact as I did. The twists and turns need to grab a hold and hang on just as they did while I was reading them. Noah and Emily’s story will stay with me forever, and when I finish every one of this authors books, something Im already close to doing I will look forward to reading them all over again!!
Read this series!! Holy book hangover batman!! Loved it!! Love Her!!
