Review Source: Atria Books
A new adult novel that perfectly captures the existential angst of your early twenties with raw wit, fresh insight, and true feeling from a critically adored USA TODAY bestselling author.
Joshua Miles has spent his early twenties spinning his wheels. Working dead-end jobs and living at home has left him exhausted and uninspired, with little energy to pursue his passion for graphic art. Until he meets Gemma Henare, a vivacious out-of-towner from New Zealand. What begins as a one-night stand soon becomes a turning point for Josh. He can't get Gemma out of his head, even after she has left for home, and finds himself throwing caution to the wind for the first time in his life.
It's not long before Josh is headed to New Zealand with only a backpack, some cash, and Gemma's name to go on. But when he finally tracks her down, he finds his adventure is only just beginning. Equally infatuated, Gemma leads him on a whirlwind tour across the beautiful country, opening Josh up to life, lust, love, and all the messy heartache in between. Because, when love drags you somewhere, it might never let go even when you know you have to say goodbye.
First of all, can we quickly talk about how gorgeous this cover is? I'm totally obsessed with it, and I can't stop staring!
Karina Halle, where have you been all my life? Apparently I've been living under a rock, because how could I not have come across Halle's work? Luckily, I'm in the clear now and Halle has won over a new big fan! I absolutely loved Where Sea Meets Sky! The romance, the angst, the characters, the storyline, all of it were fantastic!
Karina Halle's descriptive writing made the entire book so vivid! That might have been my favorite aspect of this book... if it weren't for the super hot Josh! First of all the book starts off where he and Gemma meet at a halloween party, and Josh is dressed as freaking Khal Drogo. I WAS HOOKED (and slightly drooling.) So, him and Gemma meet and the sexual chemistry between the two is intoxicating. I loved reading from both of their point-of-views. The push and pull with their "relationship" throughout the book was done well. Although I didn't find myself connecting with either main character, I couldn't help but love them!
I can't say too much without spoiling the book. But, if you're looking for an insanely sexy book to pick up, grab Where Sea Meets Sky!
