It is official: I am no longer a CoHo virgin. Am I happier for it?
I have mixed feelings.
On the one hand, I have to admit this was a rather original addition to the realm of New Adult literature. The male interest was... unconventional. I won't spoil it for you, since I really enjoyed being surprised by that little revelation.
The angst was crushing. The scenes were overflowing with drama and romance and repressed feelings and sacrifice. I actually cared.
On the other hand, there were things that bugged me to no end. Like the fact that the girl cried all the fucking time. She bursts into tears twice a day, I kid you not. It's annoying. There are limits, even when you're living a miserable life like her (don't even ask, just read and marvel in the drama). She even cried after sex. Come on!
Overall, it was a slightly above average read. I'll definitely be revisiting Ms. CoHo later on.
