Review: I was so excited when I got the ARC for Nothing Like You in the mail. I couldn't wait to start reading it. I loved the plot, I though Holly sounded like an interesting character. One that I could really relate to, which is always important. When I started to read this, I realized that Holly was going to be my favorite character. The differences between the way Holly and Paul acted at school and when they were alone, were major. From the outside you could tell that Paul was really only after one thing, and that Holly was always hoping it would be more. But, you were also inside Holly's mind and you started to think what she was thinking. At one point it became hard not to like Paul at certain moments, but then you realize how low he would actually go. The ending to this novel by Lauren Strasnick was not completely what I expected but it fit. You knew the ending was going to be hard, but a good change for Holly. Nothing Like You really is a great novel with complex characters and a new, interesting plot. You get pulled in from the beginning.

This is another one that I'm really excited to read someday when I can get my hands on it. At first, I wasn't to sure about a book where the main charater was 'the other girl' so to speak. But the idea has grown on me and I've heard tons of great things about it. Loved the review. :D
