Review:


Erin Noelle seriously knows how to mess with my head. Her debut novel, Metamorphosis (Book Boyfriend, #1), made me want to tear my hair out in frustration and yell at my Kindle in the hopes that Scarlett MacGregor would hear my pleas to refrain from making whatever ill-advised decision she would inevitably make.  I soaked up the drama as much as I dreaded it, desperately needing to know how Scarlett would attempt to handle her chaotic love life. I’ve been waiting for the second installment in this series, Ambrosia, since Scarlett found herself smack dab in the middle of a love triangle with her two love interests, Ash and Mason, in the unforgettable finale of Metamorphosis.

Like Metamorphosis, Ambrosia wreaked havoc with my emotions, especially with the addition of narratives from Ash and Mason, which provides an added layer of depth to characters I had previously gotten to know through Scarlett’s book boyfriend experiments. Scarlett’s idea of incorporating her fictional fantasies into reality appealed to my inner fangirl, but experiencing the aftermath of her decisions through Ash and Mason’s viewpoints was unexpectedly tough. Their complicated love triangle was like a ticking time bomb and I was constantly on edge, waiting for the inevitable explosion. 

Everything about Ambrosia is amplified from the previous book: there’s more passion, there’s more drama, and the stakes are higher all around. There’s so much tension (emotional and sexual) and whirling feelings surrounding Scarlett and her respective love interests. Her exchanges with Ash are especially captivating because of their undeniable connection, which is aided by their all-consuming chemistry that is present through every argument and intimate moment. At times, I caught myself holding my breath until the end of a particularly intense conversation, forgetting my need for oxygen until the chapter’s conclusion. 

What first drew me to this series was Scarlett’s original quest to find real-life (so to speak) book boyfriends and, by book two, her prospects have been whittled down to the bad boy rocker, Mason, and the laidback playboy surfer, Ash. After getting to know them better in Ambrosia, I’m more sympathetic to Scarlett’s indecisiveness, even though I’m resolutely Team Ash. This book drew me in from page one (the steamy love scenes helped) and, though I’m glad that Scarlett’s journey will continue in book three, Euphoria, I’m anxious to see how it all ends. 

Rating: 5 Stars

Excerpt:



                                                                                ASH

She let me kiss her. She didn’t argue with me when I told her that we would never say goodbye. She smiled, just slightly but it was still a smile, when I called her my Psyche. I couldn’t focus on all of the other things she said. I knew she was angry and hurt; she had every right to be. I had tried to deny what she meant to me one too many times, and I was still afraid the last time may have cost me her forever.

But finally I had something I hadn’t had in a long time ~ hope. Despite her hateful words and lashing out, I finally felt a semblance of the peace I could only find in her presence. I didn’t know what my next move was, but I sure the fuck wasn’t giving up. After experiencing a life without her in it, I would never give up on her. I would never give up on us.
