Loch Powers was the hottest guy I’d ever seen in my entire life.
And I hated him with every fiber of my being.
I'd practically known him since birth. Heck, we’d literally shared a crib as babies at his mom’s daycare.
Then I’d crushed on him hard when we hit middle school but he wouldn’t give geeky, glasses-wearing me the time of day. When his mom made him take me to the sixth grade dance, he’d humiliated me and I vowed to never talk to him again.
The next year when my family moved away, I told myself that if I never saw him again it’d be too soon.
Now I’m back and attending the same college, but I’m no longer the skinny, ugly girl who was so infatuated with him. And I’m so over him it’s not even funny.
But now that I’m no longer the ugly duckling, he’s set his sights on me, and I’m just not sure what to do with that.
While reading Loch, I waffled back and forth between 3 and 4 stars. But, here is why I tipped towards 4 for Loch:
1. I liked Simone. I thought she was relatable. And I love a female character who is going to college for something as bad ass as engineering. Smart, nerdy girls are the bomb!
2. I love that Loch had regrets. I think that is really powerful. I also think that Harper Bentley does a great job showing us how Loch not only has acknowledged his mistakes, but has made a conscious effort to atone for them. Thats hot!
3. The story is pretty short and can be easily in one sitting. The plot moves along well and the characters are likable.
Overal, it was an enjoyable story. Did I love Loch (the book, not the character)? No, but it was still good. I would continue to read books by Harper Bentley because I liked her writing style, enjoyed the story, and even if it was a little hackneyed, I still felt it was enjoyable. So, kudos for that!
I wish you got Loch’s POV though. Would have been nice to know what was going through his head. I have found I tend to really enjoy dual POV books.
