Here All Along, Crista McHugh


Here All Along,  Crista McHugh

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance, women’s Fiction,

I was a bit underwhelmed by this read…I love the friends to lovers and movie/rock star tropes so was really looking forward to this. Sadly though it was one of those that was just an OK read for me.

I loved Sarah/Sage/Red – she was a strong lady who’d worked hard to get over her troubled past. I could understand why Gideon had fallen on love with her. He was a lovely man too – very unaffected by all the fame, very genuine and they’d work well together – it was easy to see why she loved him, also easy to see why she was so scared. A great start I thought.

Then we meet Gabe, co-star of the latest film with Gideon, and it went downhill. Gideon on his own was fine, Gabe though seemed to be just weird… together they were like a couple of eleven year olds. The pranks were one thing…yeah, even adults do those ( she sniggers thinking of ones we’ve done) but they way they came up with this idea to get /Sarah and Gideon together. It was disaster right from the start and the more it went wrong the deeper they got…I could see this being such a great read but their plans just didn’t ring right for me, felt like something a pre teen would have dreamed up…McKenzie, the other co-star was terrific, a gen-you-iyne stereotype, a totally vacuous airhead. Her parts really made me smile. Sadly I think there are people like her, so self obsessed they think everyone loves them and the world revolves around them. She got some great lines in that made me smirk.

Gideon and Sarah in the beginning were promising, but once Gabe got involved it began to feel so unreal. The whole making a top film surely is more synchronised, more organised than we saw, and from a great start it just went downhill for me. It did tie up well, and made for a complete and rounded story but its not one I’d reread.

Stars: Two and a half. there were parts I enjoyed, the start was promising but it just went downhill for me from there.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
