This is my first book by Nana Malone and I really enjoyed the book, not only the story line but Ms. Malone’s style of writing. I’m not usually a fan of a third person point of view, I find it hard to really get into the story initially. I was hooked from the first page of Love Struck. I don’t think it mattered what POV it was told from Malia and Zephyr’s story demanded to be told…
Malia is extremely intelligent and more than down on her luck, lets face it– things straight up suck for Malia right now. The tenacity that she shows when life is kicking her ass is inspiring, she is the epitome of strength. I think her vulnerability and strength is what attracted Zephyr to Malia, and their chemistry is sizzling. It completely consumes you.
This isn’t your average student-teacher relationship, that’s only a very small part of the story, the struggles and problems that Zephyr and Malia deal with go much deeper. She’s just trying to survive and he’s trying to escape, and hopefully find a little solace in each other.
