It’s all fun and parties until someone falls in love in this modern fairy tale from author Kate Evangelista.
Caleb desperately needs a fake girlfriend. Either he attends a series of parties for his father’s law firm with a pretty girl on his arm, or he gets shipped off to Yale to start a future he’s not ready for and isn’t sure he wants. And sadly, the last unattached girl in his social circle has just made the grievous mistake of falling in love with him. Fortunately, Didi, recently fired waitress and aspiring painter, is open to new experiences. As the summer ticks by in a whirl of lavish parties, there’s only one rule: They must not fall in love!
“That was when I realized all love does is hurt people. It lulls you into a false sense of security, and then bam! You slam into a brick wall of pain. A shit ton of pain. Love destroys people to the point where they don’t even care who else they hurt in the process.”
That quote… *sighs* made me freaking realize mah feels!
No Love Allowed by Kate Evengelista had me giggling and swooning, at first when I read it I was all meh because all the cliche’ just presented itself to the readers just a few pages in. Then I decided to dig deeper and oh the unexpected happened because I actually loved the book! I like the character development and the cute story telling. I like the way it was written like it actually reach out to the readers.
Another reason that made me not put the book down is Caleb Parker, seriously. When you put a leading man there that’s dark-haired and blue-eyed with some arrogance/angst going on, my oh my, you got me hooked. Caleb, the typical rich kid/playboy and Didi, the typical strange girl that caught attention without her noticing it. The book is all very predictable but I honestly I love the love that bloomed between Caleb and Didi… it’s all cliche’ but it’s super cute I had my eyes watering especially that date on the museum. I most definitely loved the character of Nathan, he’s fab! I like the summery feels of the book, the the kind of light reading I needed.
The only thing that I really hoped the book had is that little mend in the relationship of Caled and his dad, I hope that at some way they get to mend their relationship.
Anyways, I liked the book a lot so if any of you are looking for a book that you’ll read for a short period of time you’ll enjoy “No Love Allowed”, it got me out of my reading slump.
