Review : Always Beautiful by M.K.Oien
My name is Lucille Marie Harris, but everyone calls me Lucky.
My life was planned out by me, for me. I wanted nothing more than to finish school and have my dream job. I let nothing or no one stand in the way of that. That is until I met Zeppelin Rhoades. He had a way of changing me; turning my world upside down and making me feel reckless.
This is the tale of a summer romance that changes the course of two people’s lives forever.
You think you know how this story ends, but you have no idea. It isn’t always about where we end up. It’s about how we get there.
One person can change your life forever.
Zeppelin Rhoades changed mine.
***This story is full of hot scenes, adult language, and life altering angst. Recommended for MATURE audiences 17+***
I received an ARC of this book for an honest review!
5 BIG FAT STARS!!
I am seriously in awe of this book. It captivated me the moment I started reading. This book starts off in the present day but flip flips to different periods in the previous year. At first I thought that would bother me, but each chapter was labeled with what time it was taken place. I must say, reading the chapters in "present day" had me really wondering what was going to happen in the end. This story was about how you try to plan your future, but unexpected turns of events happen to change all those plans for the better. It's ok to be in the moment and live day to day.
Twenty-two year old Lucille Harris, known to her friends as Lucky, had her future all planned out. She graduated from college in her hometown and then decided to further her education and attend school in Portland where her best friend, Hannah, and her cousin, Dixon, lives. She was studying to be a Cytotechnologist, someone who studies cells and cell abnormalities. She also loved racing her car. Lucky had no time or plans for a love life, however things don't always go as they are planned.
Along comes tall, sexy, tattooed Zeppelin Rhoades. He happens to be Dixon's best friend. Occasionally, he's an underground fighter & street racer. Zeppelin is someone who takes each day as it comes. He loves being spontaneous. He also loves the fact that Lucky has caught his eye & he desperately wants to get to know her.
When Lucky meets Zeppelin, her life as she knows it changes for the better. Zeppelin shows her that it's ok to live day to day even though she has her future all planned out. He brought fun and spontaneity into her life. But when things take a turn for the worse, what happens when two lives are forced apart?
I cannot express enough how much I LOVED this book. Many times while reading, I had butterflies fluttering in my belly. Then along the way my heart was torn apart and I was almost sobbing. I could not put this book down. The relationship between Lucky & Zep was intoxicating, steamy and deep. They were beautiful together. Two lives were changed forever the moment they met.
If you are looking for an enticing, meaningful, steamy love story with many emotions, please consider "Always Beautiful". You won't be disappointed. Thank you M.K. Oien for an AWESOME story! I'm looking forward to reading any future novels.
