This is my first read by Amy Harmon. (Look at all these new authors I'm checking out.)
I wouldn't classify this as a romance. To me, this is a great literary fiction read with a little romance on the side. It actually reminded me a bit of Sirois' On Little Wings.
This book is completely character driven. It is all about Blue and her finding her way in the world by learning about her past and determining her future. The craftsmanship is awesome. Harmon knows her characters in and out as well as when to reveal things about them at just the right moment to the reader.
The romance part doesn't kick in until the last 40 pages. So, if you're looking for a book that is a romance from the get-go, then grab another book.
But if you're looking for a book that will take you on a journey, then pick this up and walk a mile or so in Blue's skin tight jeans and kick butt boots and let your heart break, bleed and love with her's.
It's clean. Just kissing. Almost forgot to say.
