Book description :
.

Lucas and Juliet couldn’t be more different from each other. But from the moment Lucas sees Juliet, he swears he remembers their first kiss. Their first dance. Their first fight. He even knows what’s going to happen between them—not because he can predict the future, but because he claims to have already lived it.

Juliet doesn’t know whether to be afraid for herself or for Lucas. As Lucas’s memories occur more frequently, they also grow more ominous. All Juliet wants is to keep Lucas safe with her. But how do you hold on to someone you love in the present when they’ve begun slipping away from you in the future?

Review :
.
Well, I just finished reading this book, and even if the plot is pretty interesting, this novel did not please me …
.
I didn’t like the writing of the author. I did not care at all about the characters, not even one, which is a rare thing for me … And I was a little bored, I must admit, the story did not passionate me much, I continue to read it, just to know the end of the story, which was quite predictable.
.
A romance a little fantastic, since here Lucas, one of the main characters says to Juliet: “he has already lived a lot of the moments with her, some that had not yet happened”. Like a kind of memories, coming straight from the future … (difficult to explain)
.
I can not say much more, because 1 / the novel is quite short 2 / there is not a lot to talk about 3 / it would be a pity to spoil the little bit of the plot …
.
In short, it is clearly not a favorite. I hope one day, I will find a romance that I’ll loved … Did you read it ?

My rating : /5
