One destroys me
One breaks me
And one becomes my everything.
I may be the girl that takes school far too seriously, avoids walking under ladders and walking over three drains in a row.
But I’m also the out-going, cheerful, social butterfly that loves to go out with friends, party and have fun.
Have all that I am ripped away from me, what am I left with?
Who am I?
They say bad luck comes in threes.
After barely surviving the first two, I’m out to prove to Lady Luck that my number doesn’t come in three’s.
The synopsis intrigued me so I decided to read it and I didn’t regret getting the book. I was hooked from the first page and the characters gives something to the story.
When Willow moved to attend university, she thought it was going to be the beginning of fun time, especially considering that her childhood best friend Logan also attended the same university. Though soon everything starts to fall apart because Logan has his secrets and Willow didn’t see it coming. It broke her in a way and she had to pick herself up with the help of her friends, including her hot neighbour Cole.
Willow is definitely a lovable character. You will fall instantly for her because she’s just a sunshine. She’s so positive and happy. Ally, Willow’s best friend is also very likable. She makes the perfect sidekick for Willow. While Willow is loud and social, Ally is shy and quiet most of the time. They balanced each other very well. Cole is definitely an intriguing character. He’s quiet but there is just something about him that got Willow’s attention (AND MINE!). I like the slow build between the two. It took time for both of them to get to know and trust each other before falling in love. And when feelings get involved, *sigh* it was beautiful! You just couldn’t help but to root for these two.
The issues discussed in Foul Play are serious issues. It kinda scares me how real it felt to me while reading the book. Lisa Helen Gray has her way with words. It was almost like I could feel everything Willow was feeling and because I was rooting for her, it affected my feelings even more.
I can’t wait for the next book. I want more Ally! And I think I’m going to read more books from Lisa Helen Gray.
