I’m not really sure where to start this review, Nothing More wasn’t a book on my radar until very recently. A few friends were massive fans of the After Series and as much as I wanted to read it, I didn’t have the time.
Then one day an offer for an ARC to review popped into my mailbox, it sometimes happens magically like that, when I least expect it. I did a little investigation and realized it was a spin off of the After Series and I didn’t need to read it to read this. So I reviewed my ARCs and my TBR list, discovered I had no time for this book, and promptly took up the ARC offer. I’m a masochist, what can I say.
Anyway, I should probably talk about Nothing More. Told from POV of Landon we get to hear his story that seems to take place after the After Series, or maybe in the middle. Two things to note. First, this is a male POV, which is well written, but always weird to read because I’m used to being in woman’s heads. Second, the writing was dramatically different from what I was reading in the few books before Nothing More. The two factors were a hurdle to get over, even though I was enjoying the writing. I think my brain had to change its processing or something so it was a slow start.
Once I got into Nothing More, I enjoyed the refreshing change in style of writing. I also found that I enjoyed being in the head of a 20 year old guy. Wow, a sentence I never thought I would say. But seriously, the vulnerability brought me back to my own years in college. The constant questioning of ones self, and the emotional weakness that can come with that. Actually, I may have resembled a little bit of him at times in my own life. I might still even now.
Landon is human, flawed, but beautiful. The girls in his life, they’re all fucked up, I don’t resemble any of them. The poor kid doesn’t have a chance. And god I can’t wait to find out how it turns out. You, and I can find out the rest of Landon’s story on December 6, 2016 when Nothing Left is released.
