Can acting in love lead to the real thing? This standalone addition to the Flirt series is sweet, fresh, and clean.
Abbey couldn’t be more excited. The end of the school year is coming, as is the annual sophomore class renaissance faire…and the headlining theatrical performance, where Abbey will be starring as a lead. There’s only one problem: her costar, Jason Hardy.
Everyone else might think Jason is perfect, but Abbey knows the truth. She remembers what he did at the school dance, and she knows he’s a total jerk.
But during the daily rehearsals, Abbey starts to see a side to Jason she hadn’t noticed before…and he might not be as bad as she thought. Each day she’s falling for him just a little bit more, and she thinks maybe Jason feels the same.
Or maybe he’s a better actor than Abbey could have guessed.
Never Too Late is one of those stories that tackle about falling in love for the first time. Together with this is all the sparks, jitters, excitement and of course the uncertainty of it all. It was your typical high school story with all the best friends, jealousy and immaturity but nonetheless fun and sweet love.
Abbey our heroine is excited to end her sophomore year with a bang. No other way to go through this than to earn the lead role for the play they’re going to do for the Renaissance faire however her co-star wasn’t the one she wanted to spend a lot of time with ending her sophie year. Abbey was an okay character as your typical heroine is. She’s stubborn and I like how she values her friendship with Olivia.
Jason was a jerk, arrogant and full of himself – that is what Abbey thought about him. But all of that was washed away with how he interacted with our girl through the course of the story. I ended up liking this guy more. He’s sweet, yes he did say harsh things in the past but he surely did make up for it.
While fighting away her feelings for her lead star, Abbey was faced with another mantra for her best friend Olivia was also crushing on Jason. The thing that happened between Abbey and Jason was so typical of any young adult story but I don’t know why but I still enjoy these types of read from time to time.
The concept of the whole story was not the most original and exceptional; it doesn’t have the depth and much drama but given the age gap of the characters, you really don’t need to expect more from it for it was a simple story. The writing was catchy and the characters are okay. In all, it was cute and enjoyable.
