At first glance, Luna Stone seems to have a normal nineteen year old girl’s life. She goes to college, studying for psychology. Works at a coffeehouse. But Luna’s life is far from normal. In addition to her coffeehouse job, she also works nights at a strip club. Dancing and waitressing to keep up with her mother’s hospital bills. More recently, a old friend of Luna’s decides to pop up and beg for forgiveness. And to top it all off, her teacher recently offered her a internship at a law firm. Which is a opportunity she could not pass up.
Twelve weeks, personal assistant, no pay, but a good recommendation. Seemed easy enough. But what Luna didn’t know was the job wasn’t going to be the hard part. The hard part wasn’t even her new over-achieving, young, polar opposite boss Mr. Ian Hanson. The hard part, was not falling in love with him.
In the first book of the Live by the Sun, Love by the Moon Trilogy, we meet Luna at a time in her life when her world gets turned upside down and seems to be falling apart. But it isn't her world she's worried about breaking, it’s her heart.
Live by the Sun, Love by the Moon by J.T. Jackson
Emotionally jarring, Live by the Sun, Love by the Moon is the life story of nineteen year old Luna Stone.
It seems everything that can and will go horribly wrong in Luna's life does. Luna struggles to survive and I really loved her resiliency. No matter what life throws at Luna, she finds a way to face it and move on. Although, I found many of her and the other characters life choices poorly played and many of the circumstances were self inflicted.
I think Mr. Ian Hanson is an asshat who doesn't deserve Luna. I had a really hard time accepting his “love” for Luna while still planning and executing a wedding. It did NOT work for me. I just couldn't get past his decisions to believe in Ian's love connection to Luna.
Live by the Sun, Love by the Moon did pull emotional responses for specific and difficult situation Luna faced. It was a good story, I just couldn't personally get past the realistic but very senseless, cringe inducing character life choices.
I received this copy of Live by the Sun, Love by the Moon from J. T. Jackson in exchange for a honest review.
