Like Dragonflies by K Webster & Danielle James
Publication Date: March 7, 2019
Genres: Forbidden Romance
Purchase: Eden Books
I’m the good girl from Ashton Hills.
Rich. Pampered. Spoiled.
Slowly suffocating under my mother’s stifling thumb.
He’s the bad boy from Duncan.
Poor. Abused. Criminal.
Being swallowed by the darkness each passing second.
Two lost souls searching for freedom and happiness.
We’re lonely—broken—and trapped.
Until the universe brings us together.
Sometimes love is instantaneous.
A supernova collision of emotions.
Something that cannot be ignored.
As our hearts tangle to the point they’ll never be able to part, the past comes creeping up like an evil villain. The mistakes of our parents become our consequences to face.
We’re madly, deeply, foolishly in love.
Soul mates who finally found each other.
Two people who share the same father.

It is no secret that K Webster is one of my all-time favorite authors, and I especially love when she dips her toe into the “taboo”, or in this case plunges her whole body into it. I LOVED this book SO much. You’d never guess this was done by two different authors. It was seamlessly written and executed. Yes, the subject is highly taboo, and people will probably lose their sh!t (lol), but putting that aside, this was an incredibly sweet romance about two people who find their soulmate. Who am I to pass judgment on them? So onto to the deets…as I mentioned, this was phenomenally well written. In a lot of coauthored books it is easy to tell what author wrote what part of the book (or character), but I dare you to try to guess in this one. I have read nothing by Danielle James before, but I am well acquainted with K, and I have no idea who wrote what. (lol) It was a fairly quick read as well. Clocking in at around two hours of reading time. It was told in a dual POV format. I didn’t find it particularly angsty, and as I mentioned, the taboo issue aside, it was really an insta-love sweet type of story. There was no OW or OM drama. Hero wasn’t a manwhore (21 years old). Heroine was a virgin (18, almost 19 years old), so at least she was young enough to make it believable. This was also a fairly slow burn in terms of sex, but when we do get to the sex scenes, they were smokin’ hot. Both the main characters were extremely likable. Mars was sweet. Sexy. Working hard to get his life back on track. Sage was equally sweet. Wore her heart on her sleeve. I loved the growth she showed during the book, and how she stood up for Mars. There were a few interesting secondary characters, but by far my favorite was Charles (Sage’s Dad). The world needs more people like him. Last, it was all wrapped up in a beautiful ending, and I appreciate that these authors didn’t gloss over the reality of two half siblings (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) having children. It is left open to interpretation as to if there is something genetically wrong with Star or not, but I was glad to see that the possibility was there and that they didn’t just pop out a perfect child.
I have little else left to say. I loved every page. Every chapter. Every sentence. Every word. I sincerely hope these two authors pair up again soon. I will be at the front of the line waiting to get my hands on an early copy!
