abandon could noti loved how brennus was imperfectcould notI loved how Brennus was imperfect those annoyingly cliched hot bad boys which is waaaaaay unrealistic Sometimes throughout the book I wan t to throttle Avery because Sometimes throughout the book I wan t to throttle Avery because was so ngrateful at one point But yet againI couldn t blame her Her aunt is dying after all I could feel her conflicting emotions through the chapters But I liked the way she described the view spoiler everything in her bathroom is stocked to what she likes and the wardrobe had everything to her style as Gothic behaviour Not something you sually hear hide spoiler I thought this book was not bad I was glad it was not about vampires again For some reason when I picked this book I thought it might be about vampires but I was glad and happy surprise it was not Avery is a great strong character I enjoyed this book I ve always been fascinated by inspiration Where does it come from How do you find it And once you find it what in God s name do you do with it For authors this is especially meaningfulWe ve all heard the stories I had a dream and I just couldn t forget it I had a conversation with a little girl at a park and I KNEW I had to write it down But when it s all said and done when the girl has stop talking or you are risen by the sun the how and the where are seemingly insignificant it s what you do with that dream or conversation after you have it that really mattersSamantha Young author of Drip Drop Teardrop finds her inspiration from musicYesterday I was feeling a tad beat down by books this happens every once in a while when I slam back 6 or so books in a matter of 3 days BUT knowing that I needed to post something on the blog I put all of my extremely daunting and The Soviet Union unbearably LONG books to the side and opted for somethingick fun and easy on my head Now obviously I didn t get around to posting a review yesterday anyways damn you obligations but regardless I still want to share my thoughts on DDT with youWhen you first start Drip Drop Teardrop you are affronted with this statement Dear Reader I was driving home from work one day on a rainy motorway in Scotland when shuffle on my mp3 player chose the song Overload by The Cardigans As the lyrics and hauntingly creepy but weirdly romantic melody filled my car a story played out in my head Drop Drop Teardrop is that story It s completely different from anything I ve ever written before lyrical not surprising since it s inspired by a song but I had so much fun writing it and hope you do reading it Now naturally this is the point where I put my Kindle down and started Googling and after finally finding the song and then listening too it I couldn t wait to dive in to its 80 page literary renditionBut first just so we are clear here is what the story is about Avery hasn t had it easy When she was ten years old her parents died in a car crash Now nine years later her Aunt Caroline is the only family she has left And Caroline is dying So when Death comes knocking ite literally in the form of the damaged and dangerous Brennus Avery makes a deal with the reaper in order to save Caroline Brennus is an Ankou One of the many once mortal men and women who were given the choice to become an immortal in exchange for ferrying the dead over into their afterlife Nine years ago Brennus took Avery s parents and tried to take Avery but she fought him and won Amazed by her strength Brennus followed Avery and has watched over her Now he knows Avery is the one to offer him freedom from his obligation to the dead And he ll stop at nothing to have her Contrary to what most people have said because I wouldn t be anything if I wasn t contradictory I think this story was perfect at 80 pages Normally I m a give me girl but I have a feeling that if Ms Young would have opted for a full length novel it wouldn t have been as successful Why Because it would have involved WAY too much back storyIn my opinion which obviously is always right lol the characters in this story were fairly complex at 80 pages Avery is haunted by guilt and Brennus is haunted by his past actions and if the story had been slowed down or even plotted out differently it could have very easily been weighed down.

Scary When Avery Discovers Brennus Is Actually Death It IsWhen Avery discovers Brennus is actually death it is to nderstand why
character would be accepting his true character While her impression seems much darker than his true character with a life surrounded by death it is realistic to believe see would accept existence of a Reaper with easeThe romance of this story just goes to show what a talented author Young is for writing a heart stopping romance Brennus and Avery offer a intense and swift romance carrying readers through the story effortlessly Leaving a final Science, Technology and Culture uestion is it worth it all for the someone that you love First of all a little praise for the author and her lovely booksSamantha Young I d really like to meet you one day So would my best friend Let s discuss that somedayShe blew me away in the past withnforgettable characters like Eden Noah Ari Jai and Charlie Honestly I thought Brennus would be some extremely morose extremely No Beast So Fierce upset with his existence kind of a Grim Reaper but as it turns out he wasite wicked dark and even playful at times I really enjoyed reading about him and Avery Their relationship was ite nice It was a very small book Avery was ite a sincere girl It s sad that in the beginning no one knew her well enough to trust that she was strong enough but all that changed when she met the intriguing Ankou Brennus although a bit twisted and imperfect was alluring thoughtful and pretty sweet at times too I thought I d really like if someone like that came to me at the time of death but he turned out to be pretty wicked and scary so that s a no I really like how the book started out and I mean when they danced It was an eerie haunting way to start their relationship When they danced the first time to the song You Do Something To Me I knew I had to actually hear it myself and parallelly read the part And It was the right decision It was a beautiful song that fit the scene perfectly Great song choice Samantha Young I didn t get how Avery knew he was Death and to be honest I didn t like the fact that he was ready to take away Caroline s life when Avery left him that one time And I guess I just didn t have enough to read to connect with the characters which is a shame but then that d be really Last Chance Bride unfair of me because it is after all a novellaMaybe I should try reading novellas I wish there was to this but for a novella it was good It can actually be an excellent full fledged novel That d be really incredible Good idea Not so good executionI m a fan of stories with Death as the love interest Meet Joe Black Death Takes a Holiday and Keturah and Lord Death come to mind Abandon was one I really didn t like but we won t go there Drip Drop Teardrop is one of those stories where the hot supernatural guy showsp and declares his want for the heroine then gives her a choice to stay or go with him to his supernatural realm In this case the choice was basically Come with me or I ll kill your dying aunt early Blackmail it s so hot This guy makes demands about her being his eternal lover and then when she finally acuiesces acts like he was only asking her all alongAvery But I don t have to stay with you for any longerBrennus Not if you think you don t love me Think you don t love me huh I guess he knows her mind better than she doesBrennus does a lot of creepy things notably having the house ready for Avery s arrival her favorite toiletries in the bathroom which of course is bigger than her apartment and the closet filled with clothes for her To Avery s and Young s credit she does point out how creepy these things are She accuses him a lot of kidnapping and blackmailing and all that stuff But in the end it doesn t really matter to her The guy s hot despite a wicked facial scar he has a huge house and apparently lots of money and he s good in bed the sex scene happens off screen though Oh and he s immortal What does a girl needThere were several typos and grammatical errors that detracted from my reading experience Mistakes such as entities when it should have been entity s and allusive when it. Even Death Can Fall in LoveAvery hasn’t had it easy When she was ten years old her parents died in a car crash Now nine years later her Aunt Caroline is the only family she has left And Caroline is dying So when Death comes knocking ite literally in the form of the damaged and dange. .Her Character Would Be Accepting
