DARK COMING-OF-AGE -- MUST READ!
So... I wasn't sure what I was expecting, but I was certainly pleasantly surprised! This is a good read, a little taboo due to the age difference between the main characters, but exhilarating in its own way.
Read the story now
If you're looking for a darker coming-of-age novel, this is it. Charlisse has a dark past (which I'm a sucker for) and "Joshua" has a secret we have yet to find out. It's intriguing, and those early feelings when you meet someone new and exciting is reminiscent of when I was younger and in that position.
I'm impressed at the detail of the story, as I feel many authors/writers lack that (even best selling authors!), and it doesn't skimp on the sexual side of things. The only feedback I have to offer is some correction with grammar, and fixing the past/present tense that it seems to alter between, but it didn't affect my ability to read it too much. :-)
It's an ongoing work in progress and in its early stages, and I'm so excited to see how this continues!
