Through a turn of fortunate events they are both chosen to play the lead roles in an up and coming new indie movie, the Nightwalker Series. Their relationship blossoms as does their fame, turning their world upside down and leaving them asking, are we 'just friends'?

The Review

This is a standalone novel and focuses on the lives of Will and Kat, including the uphill struggles faced with a relationship in the limelight. KE Osborn has done a fantastic job in bringing these characters to life. I loved the storyline; it had a feel good factor about it, even though frustrating at times.

Will is your typical "multiple girls" type of guy living the high life at college until he comes face to face with Kat who he just cannot get off his mind. However we soon discover that he's not the relationship type of guy. I began thinking that Will was a complete douche bag like many men I have met growing up, but his character is written in such a way that you soon have compassion for him and understanding as to his rational. Kat on the other hand is a typical girl. She left home for the USA to go to college we soon discover she doesn't want the "friends with benefits".Kat soon realises that she cannot deny the chemistry and the pull between them. I found myself getting so frustrated with the characters (at times wanting to slap them with a wet fish!) but I found that this added to my connection to the characters through out the story, KE osborn ensure that each of the characters say true to themselves. KE Osborn does a fantastic job at ensuring all the characters are realistic and that the reader connects with them in one way or another be this falling in love with them of hating them beyond belief.

As I was approaching the end of this book I thought I had it all sussed out but my god was I wrong! I was actually considering my rating when reading through the story because I felt for me it just didn't give me enough drama but my god KE Osborn delivers! I was so surprised by the next turn in the story that it has made me re-think my whole review. I won't give too much away as it would completely spoil the plot and storyline for you guys so you will just have to trust my judgement.

I'm so pleased I didn't read this book about a month ago because I would have sobbed my heart out. If you are in that frame of mind and want a cry pick it up, or if you don't want a good cry I would still recommend you purchase it and save it for a day where you are emotionally stable lol.

KE Osborn writes wonderful novels and I thoroughly enjoy them. She keeps me in suspense and her writing style is easy read (even with the aussie talk). The intimate scenes are written to perfection giving enough away for your own mind to take you to places but without overpowing the reader. I loved the fact that the book isn't riddled with sex scene after sex scene so when you do come across them it's in line with the storyline rather than it been the story.

I have really struggled with how to rate this novel. I would love to give it a 5 star rating but there is just something holding me back and I can't put my finger on it but it's too good to just give it a four star rating so this is officially my first ever 4.5 star rating. Thank you KE Osborn for another unique story which is well written and has a feel good factor about it rather than it been all doom and gloom. An amazing story by and awesome author.
