Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: His Reverie by Monica Murphy


Today is my stop on the blog tour for His Reverie by Monica Murphy, hosted by Inkslinger PR. I am excited to share my review and a giveaway with you today!

~Synopsis~
I knew from the moment I first saw her she was the one. The only girl I could ever want.

The only girl I could ever love.

She is light.

I am darkness.

She is innocent.

I’ve done too much.

She is good.

I am bad.

She is my every dream.

I should be her every nightmare.

We come from different worlds. She’s…perfect. And I’m…

Not.

Somehow she wants me anyway. So we’ll grasp at what we can. We’re going to make this summer count. She’s my secret. And I’m hers.

The problem with secrets is they never last for long. And when others discover we’re together, they’ll do whatever it takes to keep us apart. All I know is: I won’t let them.

Because Reverie Hale? She’s mine.



~Review~

I love Monica Murphy and her new adult titles are some of my favorites so I was excited to see her come out with something new. His Reverie is mature young adult novel and a bit different than anything I've read from her in the past. I think Monica did a great job transitioning into this genre and I enjoyed this book.

Nick and Reverie are very different and come from complete opposite backgrounds. Nick grew up with a single mom and a modest lifestyle where as Reverie grew up in a wealthy conservative home. She is definitely sheltered and I liked how considerate Nick is of that. He doesn't think he's good enough for her but he can't help his desires. Reverie is like no girl he's ever known and he falls in love with that. Reverie is very inexperienced, especially with boys but when she meets Nick, she feels something that she didn't know existed. She wants him to teach her how to live, to break her out of her shell. These two have been through a lot of difficult things in their lives and finding each other is what they both really needed.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I was a big fan of the writing style. I liked the way Monica wrote Reverie's point of view in the form of a journal entry and Nick's point of view as the story. Nick is the narrator but we get insight into Reverie's feelings and thoughts through the journal entries and I found that very unique. I also liked the forbidden romance element as I am a big fan of those types of story lines. Nobody wants Nick and Reverie to be together and I like to see characters overcome that type of obstacle.

    That was my favorite part! I loved reading from his POV and reading hers through the journals! It was really cool! And I also liked how considerate he was of her. It was sweet. Though I HATED Krista!
