Char Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

I’m Charlotte York, but you can call me Char.
My life is perfect. Except for the fact that my older sister is posing naked for Playboy. And my mom wants me to be just like her. Oh, and I caught my boyfriend cheating on me. But other than that, it’s definitely perfect... Until the paparazzi publishes a picture of me smoking weed.

Now I am being forced to move to NYC with my dad. Too bad I hate New York.
At least there is Tristan Becker. He makes NY better. But he won’t date me because he thinks my best friend is in love with me. Which is absolutely not true... Or at least I don't think it is.

As you can see my life is just... perfect.

Mercy has upped the ante with Char. Her other books are more young adult, but Char is definitively new adult. Mercy's other books all have a main character that portrays innocence; Char does not. But I loved it. It had an edge that I fell in love with instantly. It's much more raw, much more intense than her previous books.

At the beginning of the book, I was definitely Team Aaron. But then he turned into this huge jerk and I wanted nothing to do with him. It was obvious from the start that he was in love with Char. He is sweet and funny. I'm really hoping for a spin-off about him.

Tristan and Char's relationship was cute, but it moved way too fast. She immediately unloads all her baggage on him. And they pretty much instantly fall in love, even though Char tries to avoid saying it. Same goes for Chloe and Phillip's relationship. They fall in love, have sex, get pregnant, and become engaged in less than two months.

Some of the stuff was anti-climatic. Like all the stuff that happened with Char's mom. And then it's just like "Okaaaaaaaaay..........."

I really wish we could see more of these characters. Candice, Aaron, Layla, and Christian should each have spin-offs!!!! I also love Mercy's writing style and the way she does her chapters. Anxiously awaiting more from her!
