Thomas & January
(New Adult)by Fisher Amelie
Thomas Eriksson thinks he has it all figured out.
"People crossed the street when they saw me. I’m not really sure why that was. I mean, okay, I might have looked a bit intimidating if I was being truthful with you. I’d changed since New York. New York represented a life that wasn’t real, not truthfully, anyway. No, New York was the “young, immature, in love, idiot" side of Tom. The “Tie-Dye Tom of New York City” didn’t exist anymore. Tie-Dye Tom was dead."
January Mac Lochlainn thinks she’s her own worst enemy.
"I quit Berkeley. Threw away a full scholarship. Plans, you ask? What plans?"
But they’re both wrong.
Tom approached me slowly and met me under the light on the stone walkway. He leaned over me so closely, my neck craned to see his face. His expression was one of confusion as he studied my own.
“What is it about you?” he asked me.
I gulped. “What do you mean?” I whispered, closing my eyes and swallowing again, my breaths becoming labored.
He lifted his hand and dragged the backs of his fingers across my jaw so lightly I barely felt them, but they made me feel dizzy all the same.
“How can you be this extraordinary, January MacLochlainn?” He leaned closer, a look of pure frustration and anger lit his eyes and pressed his lips. “And why couldn’t I have met you before I realized I didn’t want anyone...ever?”
Life for Thomas and January will never be the same again...whether they like it or not.
Let's start and say that I was so super excited to read this book because I fell in LOVE with all the characters in Callum & Harper.
Tie-Dye Tom was such a quirky amazing character in Callum & Harper so it was worth the wait to see what happened to him. It was surprising to see the metamorphosis into bitter Tom.
I will be honest that I did not love this book as much as Callum & Harper but that would have been very hard as that was such an emotional charged book but Thomas & January is not far behind because Fisher Amelie is a fantastic story writer. The only I thing I wished for was a bit more information or stories of the other characters like Harper, Cherry, Callum, etc....
I loved to see the changes in Thomas brought on by January. I thought January was a perfect pick for Thomas and was so happy with the ending. I loved their journey of finding themselves and I can't friggin' wait to find more in the sleepless series. Yeah!!!!!!
Definitely worth a read so you can fall in love with Thomas and all his friends (family)
I give it a 4.5 thumbs up! .5
