I received a finished copy in exchange for an honest review from the author. It does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
If there’s one character who can completely redeem themselves and become a top book boyfriend, that’s King Todd Dixon.
Todd is trying to get over Elizabeth, his childhood love. Getting over her and what he did to her is something he is truly struggling with. If it wasn’t for Seth and he’s coaxing him to move away, he would have crumbled to his self-hatred for what he did.
Lily has music flowing her veins; always has. But when the most important thing in her life leaves her, she is forced to try and move on. She’s now living with her sister and is just moving along. When Todd becomes her boss, the two can’t ignore how strong their connection is.
After finishing Still Life, I was truly worried I wouldn’t like Todd’s character after what happened. Woah, was I wrong COMPLETELY! I fell very hard for Todd and I’m shocked at how much I do love his character. It did take a while for me to completely grow on him, but when a certain situation was thrown at him… The way he handled it? Stole my dang heart. There’s certain guys like Todd, who just have that winning touch over me. I don’t want to go into too much detail and spoil what happens. But when you read the book, you might catch on to where I was going with that.
Lily is just such an awesome character. Both of these characters, Lily and Todd, just blew my mind. How they handled the situations thrown at them blew me away. Yes, at times I wanted to just reach through my book and yell at them.
A.M. Johnson has easily become a favorite author for me. Her writing is seriously fantastic and I can’t get enough.
