Maeve needs is action. But at eighteen, a rare form of muscular
dystrophy usually stands in the way of romance. She’s got her friends,
her humor, and a passion for filmmaking to keep her focus off consistent
rejection…and the hot older guy starring in her senior film project.
bearded, and always swaying, Cole Stone is everything Maeve can’t be.
And she likes it. Between takes, their chemistry is shockingly electric.
Maeve gets a taste of typical teenage dating life, but girls in
wheelchairs don’t get the hot guy—right? Cole’s attention challenges
everything she once believed about her self-image and hopes for love.
But figuring this out, both emotionally and physically, won’t be easy
for either of them. Maeve must choose between what she needs and what
she wants, while Cole has a tendency to avoid decisions altogether. And
her failing lungs might not wait for either.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.
This Is Not a Love Scene is one of the cute stories I’ve read so far. The story was simple and straightforward. I enjoyed reading this book as well, curious on what will actually happen to Maeve being the lady-in-the-wheelchair and what are her adventures in this book.
I could say that the book is inspirational for every reader. Despite Maeve’s situation she knows what she wants, she pursue her dreams and she actually get what she likes. She’s fighting with fate and dictating her own path. She’s amazing in her own way and she actually didn’t let anyone pull her down. Some things might be difficult for her but she thinks positively and her friends and family help her achieve what she loves. What’s a little off for me is that, she likes someone so much that I feel like it was one sided. To me, Cole was the type of person who is hard to read. His actions, the way he talks, it was mysterious. Cole to me is like the complete opposite of Maeve, that’s not a bad thing though, it’s cute.
The story focuses on how Maeve overcome all her trials, high school life, friends, love life and family. It is actually worth reading. I got hooked on it. If I see a physical copy here I’d definitely get one. I the book cover is simple too. I like how it was designed plus it is blue! That’s one of my favorite color. LOL.
Also, I would like to add before I end my review, I do LOVE the concept of the book. I think this is the first book I’ve read that focuses on filmmaking. I totally enjoyed how Maeve directs her characters. In my head, it’s like watching a movie about some play.
I’m looking forward to more S.C. Megale books and thank you for letting me be part of this blog tour. I really enjoy everything.
