Love and Relativity by Rachael Wade
Love, life, and happily ever after? It’s all relative.
Marine biology student Emma Pierce lives in paradise—geographically speaking, anyway. Stranded on Sanibel Island, Florida, she works at a nursing home by day and spends her nights dodging the island's infamous bad boy, Jackson Taylor, at her favorite karaoke bar. Trying to heal from the loss of her sister and a failed relationship she rerouted her life for, she's ready to graduate and finally leave Florida behind.
When a run-in with Jackson and his rowdy crew goes sour at the bar one night, sparks fly and irreversible damage is done. It’s no secret that Jackson loves to get underneath her skin, but this time he's gone too far. Now all he wants is to earn her forgiveness before she's gone for good, but their ideas of closure—and the future—are enough to keep them worlds apart.
Rachael Wade continues to be my favorite author. There’s just something about her writing that I adore. Once I start one of her books, I can’t put it down. Love and Relativity was no exception to that. I loved everything about the book; the plot, the characters, the setting. I was ecstatic that she had brought back some of the characters from the Preservation series for Love and Relativity. My favorite character from Preservation, Carter, was a main character in Love and Relativity, which made me fangirl squee. I’m hoping that Rachael writes a book from his point of view.(After writing this review, I found out that she is writing a book from his perspective.) I also like how the author talked about other books in Love and Relativity. That’s rare to find in books. It made me want to try reading Obsidian. I had heard a lot of great things about Obsidian. Reading about Obsidian in a book by my favorite author makes me want to read it even more. Besides Carter, my favorite character was Whitney. I loved her personality. She didn’t take crap from anyone. She ripped into Jackson when she was being a complete jerk to Emma. She was a supportive friend. She laughed and cried with her. She was also there anytime Emma needed someone to talk to. I love Love and Relativity. I am eagerly awaiting Rachel Wade’s next book. Based on her books thus far, her next book is bound to be a hit as well.
I give Love and Relativity: 5/5.
