[Review] Limerence by Jackie Wang

39964175.jpgA riveting new trilogy about love, loss and chaos by bestselling author Jackie Wang

One smile was all it took to ignite my obsession.
I fell in love with Caylen Mollett long before she became my best friend.
And I continued to love her, even when she belonged to someone else.
I promised I’d always be there for her…and I’d keep my promise, even if it meant sacrificing everything.

I fell in love with a volatile god; one of the wealthiest men in the world, and my best friend—Victory Wilton.
I loved him long before he inherited a billion dollars.
And I continued to love him, even when he tried to break us.
I made a vow, for better or for worse…and I’d keep my promise, even if it meant sacrificing everything.

I fell in love with my smart and sexy roommate. The only one who saw past my wealth, good looks and playboy persona.
Caylen Mollett saw me for who I truly was: a sad young man with a broken family and a lonely childhood, and loved me despite my flaws.
She loved me long before I spiralled out of control.
And she stayed with me, despite my anger and cruelty.
I didn’t deserve her kindness, but I made a vow to never hurt her again, and I’d keep my promise, even if it meant sacrificing everything.



Absorbing and challenging

Well this was such an emotionally charged read…it has been a while since I have read a book where so many disparate and desperate feelings are played out in the pages of a book… of course this author is a master at creating truly intense characters with complex backstories who are often both selfless and selfish in their relationships…

This story focuses on the three three main characters Knox, Caylen and Victory…a sort of platonic love triangle…perhaps that is an oxymoron; but read the book and hopefully it will make sense… there is so much angst and I have so say I have a love hate relationship with all of them, for varying reasons.. so many times I wanted to shake them and tell them to sort themselves out and to think carefully about the consequences of their actions.

In many ways this book was a challenge for me because I am not sure I really liked the main characters most of the time, but the plot was so absorbing that I found myself completely immersed in their world and I had to keep reading, no matter what..there is more to come for these three, and I look forward with a great deal of excitement and some trepidation to the next instalment…
