Review:Sapphired Dragon XX
I have adored this series and I am so sad that this appears to be the last book. I have enjoyed each and every book in this series and this one was no exception. We first met Willa and Finn in book 2 of the Creative Hearts series, How Willa Got Her groove Back however we have seen glimpses of them in subsequent books of the series and this book starts just a few short weeks before the wedding between Willa's Dad Matt and Finn's mum Mia.
Willa's mindset at the beginning of this book is very different to that of the first book and already we can see the growth in her character since we last saw her. I really connected with her in this book so it was great to see the growth continue. Of all the boys in this series, Finn has always seemed the most real to me ( and the most swoonworthy :-P ) so I kept wanting the two of them to get together already. However Ms McKay kept the tension between them perfect all the way through and this kept me turning the pages, eager to see where these two would end up.
This series itself is interesting in that it has been a collaboration between four different writers with each writer focusing on the 2-3 of the core characters of the series, kids attending the Next Gen Arts Academy in Austin. Though each book focused mainly of two of the core group the series and stories of the whole was continued fro book 1 through to book 6 and in this book we get a conclusion of both the story of Will and Finn as well as the over series ARC. I really liked Where Willa and Finn's story finished up where as some of the other couple felt a little unfinished with things I wanted to see. In fact I really enjoyed the entire journey of this book.
This book was a quick, easy and most importantly fun read with lots and lots of feels. It is most definitely a one sitting read with characters you will love and be thinking about long after you have finished the book.
I wish there could be more of this series and I give this story 3 3/4 stars
Weddings, Crushes and Other Dramas (Creative Hearts #6) by Emily Mckay
Falling in love with the best man wasn’t on the program.
Willa is happy to be the maid of honor in her dad’s upcoming wedding to uber-celeb Mia McCain. Not as happy about the best man being her soon-to-be stepbrother, the infuriating—and infuriatingly gorgeous—Finn McCain. Every time their paths cross, the attraction simmering between them grows a little harder to ignore. Willa knows all about guys like Finn—they only want what they can’t have. What’s between them isn’t real.
Finn has never felt anything more real than what’s developing between him and Willa. Sure, her dad warned him to steer clear, but it’s not just about forbidden temptation. He’s determined to prove to Willa he’s not going anywhere—and that happily-ever-after will always be worth the risk.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a wedding so crazy it’ll make you laugh, a stepbrother so hot he’ll make you swoon, and a heroine so real she’ll make you cry.
When Willa Schofer’s father comes home from a business trip with an über-famous new fiancée, Willa’s senior year blows up in paparazzi-fueled flames. Overnight, she has a new house, a new car, and a new soon-to-be stepbrother—the unbelievably hot, unbelievably arrogant, Finn McCain. Thank god he’s constantly pushing her buttons, or she might do something irresponsible. Like fall for the jerk.
Just when Willa’s decided to avoid him for, oh, ever, Finn lands in the center of her senior project team. Seriously—how hard is it to shake a guy? At least her work on the project snagged the attention of the (second) hottest guy in school. He might only be into her because of her famous stepmom, and he’s not quite as exciting as a certain annoying housemate, but at least she’s allowed to crush on the guy.
Because crushing on your annoying stepbrother? So not cool.
