N new Told from several points of view Izzy Tristan is aove story for the ages and a Still Life with Chickens love story for this very moment This fast paced novel is at once a gripping tale of firstove and a sprawling epic about the bonds that tie us together and pull us apart and the different cultures and tensions that fill the contemporary American andsca. The book the relationship between Tristan and Marcus wasn t really as believable Because Marcus was basically a douchebag and it just didn t make sense to me why Tristan went along with his shady ways so much And oh my gosh I basically spent most of the book silently yelling at Izzy and Tristan to just cop on THEY DID SO MUCH STUPID STUFF AND MADE SO MANY RIDICULOUS DECISIONS THAT I CAN T EVEN But despite all these issues I still enjoyed the book shrugs shouldersIt was an easy read and

Finished in one sitting I want to go cry in a corner now This had potential but it fell short for me The ove story did not pull me in which is surprising since the very first ine in the prologue did and set high expectations The Mexican Hooker language used felt over the top and yet not enough to deliver a believable instaove romanceThere s a plotline that involved consent ack thereof actually that was not sufficiently add this book is between a 2 and a 3 for me but i couldn t decide which one would suit it better i guess i gave it the 2 stars rating after all because there so many things th I m a sucker for a doomed romance so when I heard that this book was a modern reinterpretation of The Story Of Tristan And Iseult I story of Tristan and Iseult I to read it I first became familiar with the story from the cheesy AF film Tristan and Isolde that I unashamedly adore and have seen far times than I probably should admit to ol So I definitely enjoyed this book Its not the greatest thing ever written but I was certainly invested in the storyline from the get go It s 100% insta ove crazy for you over the top hysterical type of boy meets girl ove at first sight but none of that bothered me Instead I just found myself falling for these characters Suspicion at Seven: A Lois Meade Mystery love story as much as they had fallen for each other I really enjoyed the way that chess was used as an overarching theme for this story with different characters being represented by different chess pieces Izzy ueen Tristan knight Brianna rook It added an extra dimension to the story for me and gave it that formal court setting that reminded me of the originalegendyeah okay I mean reminded me of the film The thing about the book though is that the characters weren t exactly all that well written Izzy is supposed to be someone with a passion for medicine and healing and this was really under done in the novel What I mean is that I feel her interest was only mentioned in passing and was purely perfunctory so that the book could take a nod from the original egend where she heals Tristan of his wounds and here she helps him with a bruised ankle Other than that I feel like Izzy had very ittle other interests and an underdeveloped backstory Izzy had very ittle other interests and an underdeveloped backstory never understood her connection with her twin brother Hull In fact he was just a very odd part of the book in general and really his character could have been axed from the
