All my Life 18+

All My Life (First Things, #1)
3 of 5 stars false1/2
Seventeen-year-old Kari meets Neil Mars. “Neil as in Armstrong and Mars…as in Bruno.” A boy who beats every vampire, werewolf, highlander fantasy Kari has ever had. But she knows she can’t get close to him. Not ever. Because that would mean telling him everything. Coming clean. And Kari can’t bear the idea of changing the way Neil looks at her. Like she’s the only girl in the world. His reverence is something too precious to lose. Perhaps even at the cost of losing him.
But Kari doesn't know why Neil calls her his ‘Angel’ and when she finds out, she realizes what love is all about. Boundless joy, unending longing and a fuck load of heartache.


****This book was part of a blog tour I was given a copy for my honest review****
Something horrible happens to Kari. Because of it, she can't move on, she can't make friends, she lives in constant fear. She is desperate, and this desperation leads her to get a job at a tattoo shop called Prick.
This move changes her life. She makes some friends....and more importantly she meets Neil Mars, her bosses son.
This was a quick but worthwhile read. I loved the Kari, I felt for her, but her personality was awesome, really it was. If what happened to her ever happened to my daughter I would just die, the poor girl had the weight of the world on her shoulders all because of the evil skuzz bucket, Eddie. Anyway I digress, this book really drew me in and although it was a bit tense in bits the humour between the characters and her friends and her own inner monologue had me reading this book with an almost constant smile. Neil was a total winner, just the sort of guy you would want after the dreaded Eddie.
Bits of this book seemed a little rushed, I would have loved to have had longer with these characters and maybe a bit more detail. But all in all I am happy that I got the opportunity to read it. This book is the first of this author and also the first in a series. I will be looking forward to reading the next one, because this authors voice is confident and fun.
