“Charlotte has a high tolerance for risk, she’s a slave to the sea and she takes pictures of time.”
This was free on ibooks so I downloaded it and gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised, actually, by how much I enjoyed reading this.
Charli Blake has dreamt of travelling the world and leaving Piper’s Cover for 10 years. She has a ‘bad’ reputation around town due to rumours started by the Beautifuls, as everyone in town refers to the trio of backstabbing bitches. Then she meets Adam Décarie ( 😉 ) and falls unexpectedly in love with him. Meeting Adam makes her realise who she is and she becomes to accept herself. Through Saving Wishes, Charli suffers a lot, yet comes out strong in the end.
I really admired Charli as a character and thought she was strong-willed, tough, (oh so very tough for putting up with the Beautifuls), smart, imaginative, passionate, oh and funny and snarky. You really see her grow as a character and how she overcomes the problems she faces. Adam was your typical oh-so-gorgeous-ridiculously-nice guy, and a little too cliché for me, but fun nonetheless. Another character I really enjoyed was Alex, who I found loveable and I really admired his devotion and love for Charli, and WOW, big shocker that I did not see coming.
The plot focuses mainly on Charli’s development as a character and her love for Adam and the decision she has to make as to whether to stay or to go.
If you’re a fan of contemporary romance and cliché love-at-fire-sight romances, then I really suggest you give this a go.
RATING: ★★★☆☆ (Actually 3.5)
