Synopsis

Scott Abrams is the love of Brooke’s life. He just doesn’t know it yet. So when his family moves to New York City the summer before senior year, Brooke has no choice but to follow Scott. It’s her last chance to prove to him that they’re meant to be together.

But the city is full of surprises that Brooke never expected. Ever since a painful family trauma, she’s been closed off to her parents, to her friends, and even to herself. Now, inspired by the thrilling energy of the bustling and creative city around her, Brooke begins to discover a side of herself she never knew existed.

And as she finds out, in the city that never sleeps, love can appear around any corner...


My Review

This was freaky! Not freaky in a boo there is a ghost, it's more like boo you have a stalker! No matter how this book played out and how it ended, Stalking is wrong. I felt the MC didn't get a big enough reality check about why not to stalk. Ok, now that I got that part of my opinion over with, I need to dive into all the positives.

   Brooke was so comical, she was definitely a go getter and had a kooky chain of thought. This is a character to remember. Ah and the godly Scott...Poor guy. He really seemed like a nice guy just didn't fir Brooke's mold.  Sadie now she was awesome, I loved her quirkiness.  Now on to the real hottie in So Much Closer, John. He blew Scott out of the water.  NO offense but I alway enjoy the under dog.  

   I did laugh out loud a few time and I had a few WTF moments which made for a great plot.  I doubt you would become bored reading So Much Closer.
It was a great read despite the stalkerish events.

It sounds kind of interesting, but I am not sure what I would have made of the stalking. It might have creeped me out a bit.
