Smashwords book reviews by Tawnya Peltonen

on Feb. 17, 2013
I received a copy of this book and for some reason, I'm not entirely sure why, I put off reading it for a while. After having it sitting on my bookshelf for a couple weeks, silently taunting and begging me to read it, I finally gave in and started it late last night.
I am now figuratively kicking myself for not reading it sooner. I could not put this book down!!!! In fact, I stayed up past 3 a.m. reading it. From page one all I could think was "Wow!". This is an INTENSE read. It will definitely make you feel something. Throughout the book I laughed, I shed a tear or two and I seriously wanted to punch someone...or maybe a few someones in the face.
I loved Lola and Jack and the way they could just let go of their problems with each other. The way they interacted with each other and with others felt very real. I could almost imagine myself and people I know being in these same situations, having the same conversations. And the secondary characters....well, let me just say I think I'm a little in love with Sebastian.
The only real issue I had with the book is that I felt the pace of it was too quick. I would have enjoyed more details, more scenes that showed certain relationships developing. But aside from that, I really enjoyed this book. and I'm hoping that Lindy Zart decides to tell more of the characters' story. I would definitely read a sequel.

I was lucky enough to have beta read this book. My opinions of it are my own.
I've read all of Lindy Zart's books (so far) and loved each and every one of them, but this is one of my favorites. Incomplete is a maddening, sweet, heart-wrenching emotional rollercoaster of a story about two people who bring out the best (and worst) in each other. The characters were honest, flawed and so real I felt as if I knew them. I highly recommend this book if you're looking for a read that will make you FEEL something.
