Review: Rival by Lacy Yager

Rival - Lacy Yager

I haven't actually read the series before. Though the goodreads link doesn't say anything, I guess it's supposed to be a novella of the Unholy Alliance series.The two characters Emily and Brett are pretty lovable. I felt their love story typical, nothing sort of unique. But still, it was nice to see them fall in love. Together they face situations where, fighting with all the power, courage and strengthen they can muster.

 

Emily and Brett come from different backgrounds, they both have their own issues to deal with. their own secrets to hide. But eventually they end up helping each other and being each other's support system. I liked the character of Emily because as I always say, I like strong female characters. Emily wants to be a Chaser, just like her other family members. As for Brett, he is the typical sweet, romantic and nice guy you'd find in a usual love story. His attempts at wanting to keep his condition a secret is understandable and shows that he has a sense of self respect as well. I wish the book was longer so that I could've gotten to know both of them better.

 

Overall, it was a short and nice read. The only letdown for me was probably the length. I don't like books that are either too lengthy or too short. Novella or not, I really wish this story was a little longer, so that the plot could have developed a little more along with the characters. I felt like the story ended the moment I was getting engrossed in it. But I would suggest it to anyone who loves to have a short YA read.
