Smoky Mountain Dreams

Smoky Mountain Dreams - Leta Blake 3 I wish I cried stars.

I guess everyone truly does read a book differently.... And the definition of angst for me...

Mare's angst: crying, blubbering, butterflies, nervousness, sniffles, heart racing, emotional, terrified, what's coming next. WTF where is this going. OMG moments. Heart stopping. Connections.... intense connections.

The true definition of angst:

a feeling of deep anxiety or dread, typically an unfocused one about the human condition or the state of the world in general.
"adolescent angst"
synonyms: anxiety, fear, apprehension, worry, foreboding, trepidation, malaise, disquiet, disquietude, unease, uneasiness

So I guess in a way my angst and the real angst are similar...right?????

Smoky Mountain Dreams....

SMD was really more of the real angst that Mare's angst. And although it dealt with some really tough matters, one that would probably make lots of people tear up, it just didn't hit Mare'sangstmetre as I had prayed.

It was a nice story. I liked it but I also found that I could walk away from the book for hours at a time and then come back to it.
It had some touching moments. But I had a lot more moments of wanting to just shake the characters in the book. All of them. Not just 1 but all.
The sex was hot.
But some of the scenes seemed out of touch with the theme of the story.
But again the sex was seriously hot.

And I also thought that the ending was just a little... abrupt?

Here's hoping we get a book 2 because I feel some serious issues were left unattended, such as Marcy and her care, How B dealt with her wish really not coming true, do they pull the plug? And what happened with Christopher's fucked up family???
