I had the opportunity to read an ARC of Sublime by Christina Lauren (who is actually two authors: Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings). True love may mean certain death in a ghostly affair of risk and passion from New York Times bestselling duo Christina Lauren, authors of. When I think of Christina Lauren, I will be the first to admit that I think of sexy books and a man named Will (Sorry Bennett, you aren't my type).
She's not sure what's tethering her to Colin's prep school, but she does know she feels some sort of connection with him, and he with her.
Official synopsis: True love may mean certain death in a ghostly affair of risk and passion from New York Times bestselling duo Christina Lauren, authors of Beautiful Bastard. Colin has never been captivated by a girl the way he is by Lucy.
With each passing day their lives intertwine, and even as Lucy begins to remember more of her life—and her death—neither of them is willing to give up what they have, no matter how impossible it is. In the Twilight series, Bella technically wants to be undead so she can be a vampire like Edward, and the concept here is sort-of the same - Colin tries to submerge himself in freezing lake water several times so that he can be closer to Lucy - but at the same time, things are also much more complicated.
Colin's parents died when he was young - a car accident, in which his mother, in grief from losing her daughter shortly prior, tried to kill herself and her husband and son; Colin miraculously survived.
All Lucy knows is that she can't leave the gates of the Saint Osanna prep school - something is binding her to that area. When Colin meets Lucy, he starts to dig more into her past, and soon finds out what it is that keeps Lucy on school grounds; and it's not a pretty story.
I liked this book a lot, although I will say the ending was rather bittersweet. Jay Colin's best friend , Lucy, Colin, and Colin's caregiver are the main characters, and the authors dig deep into their stories.
It's also interesting to think about why Colin's mom tried to kill their family, as Colin later decides that he'll do anything if he can just be with Lucy in "her world" rather than the ghost-human relationship they have in "his. Sublime will be in stores on October 14, The opinions expressed here, however, are my own. He can only touch her when he takes life to the extreme and teeters on the edge of death. He seems to be fearless.
Lucy was murdered at the school that Colin attends. She falls for Colin and the road that they travel to be together is one full of twists and turns.
Ultimately — the ending of this book is what a lot of people have deemed as the controversial part. I thought that the authors exhibited an overwhelming amount of courage in writing an ending that will leave you thinking and leave you believing in love and fate. After reading Sublime I am more enchanted with their writing and know that they are one of the few authors in the world that can go across genres.
Book Review: ‘Sublime’ by Christina Lauren
Hot Guy Rating: Well, I know that you all want to know if you are finding a new book boyfriend in Sublime, and you will. Colin is strong and yet weak.
He is vulnerable at points — which I always find attractive. I want a man that can talk to me and cry if needed.
And do some of the things that Colin does without hesitation. I think that Colin is amazing and beautifully written. I also like that bad boy edge and Colin does have that. But the beauty in Sublime is the fact that it a stand a lone.
It would work well as a movie versus a tv show. Their books have been translated into 22 languages. Some of these books have kissing.
Some of these books have A LOT of kissing. Find them on Twitter at seecwrite and lolashoes.

Fangirlish is my baby. I work in social media professionally and I love it - which is probably why I don't keep up on my own. I don't sleep enough and I obsess too much over my favorite things.
I need to work on combing my hair more. Or at elast I need to stop dying it different colors.
We love it, but love a…. Afternators are you ready?
