I See You

I See You 
Molly McAdams
November 1, 2016

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams’ powerful new novel offers one of the most memorable love triangles in fiction since Twilight—perfect for fans of New Adult fiction like Jamie McGuire, Abbi Glines, and Tamarra Webber.

Futures are uncertain, unpredictable—like ink spilled across the purest surface. Nearly imperceptible ripples move and flow until a unique stain is formed. The ink is permanently imbedded in the surface…

During one wild night in college, Jentry Michaels is a tidal wave of ink that brands Aurora Wilde’s soul. An unparalleled stain she can’t forget despite the many months that have passed—and despite the distraction she’d hoped she would find in her new relationship with Declan, the charmer who captured her heart soon after. Jentry has irrevocably touched her soul, and he is intertwined in her present and future in ways she never fathomed. Now Aurora is faced with keeping that night hidden though it feels as if the ink has indelibly etched their story across her skin.

When Declan is confronted with his own personal demons, Aurora must decide if she will continue to hold tight to their relationship and a safe, reliable future with him, or if she will turn to Jentry—the guy she can’t forget no matter how hard she tries.…

I despise love triangles and all the drama that comes with them. But there was something about this blurb that just drew me in and made me want to give this book a chance. I'm really glad that I did because I ended up enjoying this story! 

One night of being wild changed Aurora's life and she didn't even realize it. A year ago she decided to stop being the good girl and had one night to walk on the bad side, spending it with a man she only knew as Jay. They walked away from each other that night with no plans to come in contact again. But that all changes when Jay aka Jentry shows up in her life. Oh and just happens to be her now-boyfriends adopted brother. 

I had an equal amount of things that I liked about this story and what I didn't like about it. What I enjoyed was how gripping the tale of these three characters was. I was nervous going into it because I really wasn't sure how I would handle a love triangle book but it ended up being very interesting and the main thing that had me so focused on it. I really liked how there wasn't that one guy that was made out to be the "bad guy" and the one we all hated in the love triangle. Instead i ended up feeling for both Jentry and Declan and didn't want to see either of them hurt. 

What I didn't like and what made me lose a bit of focus was the time jumps. I don't like going back and forth in books and have only read a few books that did that that I ended up liking. But in this book I just couldn't get into the past story and didn't understand why it skipped in weird increments of time. We had the present and then the past from a year ago, to a few months in the past, to a month before. It just seemed off to me and I found myself skimming some of those parts because I just wanted to get back to the present. 

Overall, even with the issues that I had while reading this I still very much enjoyed the story. I know not everyone likes love triangles but I still say to give this book a chance. If I can read this and end up falling in love with the characters then I definitely think it's worth everyone else giving it a chance.
