His Reverie by Monica Murphy is a sweet Young Adult romance.
I knew from the moment I first saw her she was the one. The only girl I could ever want.
She is light.
I am darkness.
She is innocent.
I’ve done too much.
She is good.
I am bad.
She is my every dream.
I should be her every nightmare.
We come from different worlds. She’s…perfect. And I’m…
Somehow she wants me anyway. So we’ll grasp at what we can....more
There were moments when I was interested and then moments when I couldn't keep my attention on the story. I don't know why other than that I thought Nick, the hero, was a fabulously developed character while I found Reverie to be annoying.
There's an incredible dichotomy between these two characters. They are the ultimate opposites. First you have Nick who is fresh out of jail after being wrongfully accused of murder. He's lost his only family member and is now fully responsible for himself. On the other side, you have Reverie who is an innocent girl just spreading her wings to escape her overprotective family. They aren't only rich and she's not only sheltered but her father is a big-time televangelist. So, yeah, it's the ultimate in opposites attract.
The story was unique -every other chapter was a diary entry of Reverie- but I found myself much more interested in Nick's POV. Still as the book ended in a huge cliffhanger, I found myself curious about what what's in store for this couple next.
