Oh Cash, oh Anaya…why? Why, Tara Fuller, why? This book pulled at my emotions like it was a piece of string being chased by a cat. For me, Blurred was an emotional rollercoaster that had me wanting to get to the end as fast as possible. It was the kind of book that made me root for the character’s happiness at the end, no matter what it was. It shouldn’t be hard to guess that I absolutely loved this book!
I did not read the book prior to this one and I went into the story not knowing who the characters were, what their story was, or how things got to be the way they were. What I did get from the start, Cash was struggling with the aftermath of the fire. He was angry; he was hurt both emotionally and physically. Throughout the book, the lies that were surrounding him began to unravel. I just felt so bad for Cash as the story progressed that I wished something good would happen to him. Anaya was also tortured; she longed to get back to those she loved. Her loyalties were tested as she struggled to do what was right versus what would benefit her. Though their troubles differed, Cash and Anaya still struggled throughout the book with their emotions, and everything else. Emma, well, she was hurting and I could tell she cared about Cash and wanted to help him. Finn was supportive in the whole situation, and I liked the way that he was there for Emma.
The plot, oh my god, why? Why did Cash have to suffer so much? Why? You know the saying, right? How life’s not fair, well, this just tops the cake with a pretty cherry on top. The plot was so unfair to the characters that I seriously questioned if there was going to be a good ending. And then the end snuck up on me way too quickly, and then it was over. Despite everything, I felt like the ending was just right for this book and wrapped everything up nicely. I just have one more question. So, um, yeah, is there another book and when’s it coming out?
