*REVIEW* "Beautiful Oblivion" by Addison Moore

Reviewer: Donna

Rating: 4 Stars


A very enjoyable and light hearted book. I love a good romantic book and this was just that. This story was about Reese and Ace, they grew up together and always harbored feelings for each other but never told each other how they felt. Reese comes up with a idea to make Ace agree to a summer fling and they were to depart as friends after the summer ended.

Really enjoyed this book as there was a lot of funny and embarrassing moments that just gave the book character. It was easy sometimes to get annoyed with Reese as she a lot of decisions to make and always often made the wrongs but that's what made the book so funny to read.

I have read many of Addison Moore's book and this was it probably one my favorites. There is a Book 2 due out in 2014 but focuses on Ace's Best friend Gavin so i'm really excited to read his story as i'm sure it will be a cracker.


It was supposed to be just for the summer…

Some people just don’t belong together, or at least that’s what the world would have them believe.

Reese Westfield comes from a world of old money, country clubs, cotillions, and expensive cars. She’s tired of dating Warren McCarthy just to make her father happy. Reese has long since had her eye on someone else, and this summer she’s determined to make it happen.

Growing up in Lake Loveless there has always been a strict monetary divide—there was the rest of the Lake and then there were the Waterman’s. Ace Waterman has worked for everything he has, and he doesn’t have a lot. He breaks his back doing grunt work while putting himself through college. He’s used to life passing him by.

Reese has loved Ace from afar for as long as she can remember. The summer of her freshman year she comes home with plans to land Ace in her bed at least for a few short weeks, and, if she’s lucky, forever.

Ace has loved Reese for as long as he can remember, but their friendship has never graduated beyond platonic, so when Reese comes home from her first year away and proposes the two of them have a summer fling, Ace is quick to comply. The rules: no strings, no expectations, just something hotter than the sun to set the sheets on fire.

But when their worlds collide, and neither of them is willing to admit to having true feelings, it becomes clear to Ace he’s nothing more than a dirty little secret—that the summer fling was just something meaningless to pass the time.

Reese wonders if she can ever stop trying to please her father, and it’s only through her mother’s letters that she finds the answers she truly seeks, but will they be the ones she wants to hear?

As summer draws to a close, Ace and Reese are still very much enraptured even though the time has come to douse the flame and move on—but neither one of them is prepared to leave this BEAUTIFUL OBLIVION.
