Quick thing to say before I get into my review. I noticed like the dumb idiot I am that just because I review a book doesn't mean you know anything about the book. So now I'll take the description (from Goodreads) and put it on with the book so you'll have a bit more information. Cool.
Ashton Summers is on her way to becoming the most popular girl in school and nothing—or no one—is going to stand in her way. Especially not Luca Byron, her freak neighbor, with his tattoos, loud music, and distracting green eyes.
Luca Byron has three goals in life: get through high school with a low profile, make sure his garage band becomes something more than a hobby, and try to forget about his insufferable ex-best friend, Ashton, who he can’t get out of his mind.
The last thing Ashton and Luca want to do is rekindle their friendship, but when Ashton takes a tumble down the social ladder, Luca—with his new makeover—is the only one who can help her rise up again by pretending to be her boyfriend. At first, being together is unbearable and annoying, but things start to change as Ashton and Luca discover the real reasons they drifted apart seven years ago.
Now, keeping their hands off each other seems impossible.
Description from Goodreads
Impossible by Komal Lewis
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I probably would've given this at the very least a three star, if not for hating one of the main characters. Honestly, I could barely stomach some parts the the book and I had to keep putting it down. I couldn't bring myself to read any more of it until I had cooled down.
Ashton is the biggest, most stuck-up effing bitch-princess I have ever had to read from their point of view. I bet Kance would be worse, but I (thank god!) didn't have to read from her point of view. Ashton is just... yikes.
I think I'm done with all of this contemporary bull for now. I've had enough of it. Especially where world class bitches are involved. Ugh. And it was so unreal. In the beginning she held no remorse. There would be no way she would ever change in a heartbeat like that. No. Not possible. 'Impossible' works just fine too.
Luca was a great character, on the other hand. Maybe into the more jagged side of things, but really? Honestly? He wasn't a half-bad character compared to Ashton. Though a book about ants with a queen ant as the main character would be more appealing then reading about Ashton ever again.
Do I recommend this book? Well, I'm not sure, which is a first. The writing was wonderful, fantastic, full of pizazz and all that. But Ashton kept poking my eyeballs out while I read I don't know if I should recommend torture like that. Up to you. But in general I guess I'd say look for a different book, and unless you're really desperate, I wouldn't suggest coming near this book.
Not because of the quality of writing, no sirree, not because of the quantity of writing. Because of Ashton and the fact that she's so hung-up on her popularity she can't get her head in the game and out of the clouds. But maybe you like that kind of thing. Not me. No thank you.
