review 1: Living in Glass Houses is a wonderfully engaging story about three friends supporting each other as they each fall in and out of love and deal with figuring out their lives along the way. It was a read that kept me up late into the night because I just had to know where each characters stories would take them. Living in Glass Houses alternates between the three friends lives, and I loved that aspect of the book because it gave so much depth to the novel. Jonathan is a genuinly good guy, with a job he loves, even though no one else seems to respect it. He finds himself trapped in a relationship that he doesn't really fit into and he doesn't want to change to be the guy his girlfriends family and friends want him to be. When he falls in love with someone else, he becomes mor... moree confused than ever before. Things get even more complicated for him, and in the end he's faced with finally having to choose the one he really loves. Elle is a woman who has a good relationship with a wonderful man, but can't stop herself from longing for her ex. Blair is a strong woman who married young and had to deal with constant infidelity from her famous husband, Vaughn, which lead her into the comforting arms of down to earth and all around good guy, Dylan. Something unexpected happens, and Blair has to make a difficult decision between trying to salvage her marriage or finally break free of it and starting a new life with Dylan. What I loved most about Living in Glass Houses is that you become so invested in the characters stories and the author keeps you guessing their outcomes till the very end, and even then you might be shocked with the choices the characters made. Living in Glass Houses kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire novel. I had to keep reading, because I had to know how their stories ended.
review 2: I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, I'm glad I did because i found it to be a very enjoyable read. It starts off with each chapter featuring a different character in the book and each subsequent chapter being about that person and their individual situation. I admit if was a little hard for me to follow at first, keeping the different characters and their stories straight. Later on in the book you understand that they are acquainted and friends with each other and then it starts to gel together. It tells about major decisions that these people have to make in their lives, and whether they follow their heart to choose the right one or not, and how it will affect the rest of their lives ( and the other people around them ). . It doesn't have any murders or action packed sections, but it's not that kind of book. I found it to be more of a thought provoking book, about making the right decisions and following your heart and how whatever decision you make could really affect not just you ,but other peoples destiny. It's also about whether you want to just 'settle' or follow your heart even though it might not the safest or easiest decision to make in the long run. There is a cliffhanger at the end that had me dying to find who gets chosen as the "one"...but, I guess you'll have to read it to find out!) .This is the authors first book and i think it is a excellent start to her new career as a author. In the back of the book is a 'sneak peek' of her next book ,it's the sequal to this story called "What Happens In The Dark". I'll really be looking forward to reading it when it's released, so I can find out what happens next in these people's lives and how it all turns out in the end. less
