My Rating

Synopsis (goodreads):

There’s a difference between falling and letting go.

Lauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl lusts after. So why is she so unhappy?

It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: She’s been holding back. She’s been denying herself a bunch of things (like sex) because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the “right” thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect boyfriend?

But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren simply can’t see herself in — and as Lauren’s craving for Evan, and moreover, who she is with Evan becomes all the more fierce — Lauren realizes she needs to make a choice…before one is made for her.


My first Elizabeth Scott novel and it was beyond GREAT! She is a fantastic author that made sure that the book never left my hands till i actually finished. While i was reading the book, i was thinking, this the only book of hers that i have come across after scouring the shelves for the longest time, and now i feel that i have seriously been missing out.

Bloom is a simple enough story about reflecting on your life and the choices you have to make regarding your life. Its about analysing perfection and if its always the best thing for you.

I loved how she made comparisons in the book about how many other books talk about the cliched life and she differentiated it in hers.

Also i fell in love with Evan during the first few chapters only. He was just plain DREAMY! Dave actually started getting on my nerves and i hated how he unintentionally (fine, i know its not his fault) deciding Lauren’s life for her.
