The Lance Temptation

The Lance Temptation is a quick read about a girl called Emili who traded off all of her friends in order to befriend Farah, the most popular girl among boys, just to have a taste of her wild life. Unwanted drama dropping from every corner, Emili is up for a big change in her life.

I tried to sympathize with Emili, to get her point of view in many of her decisions, but I couldn’t believe she was so naive, at times I would have loved to shake her into some common sense. Farah was an untrustworthy girl used on getting her way with every boy or grownup, and Lance, well … Emili described him as the hottest guy around, maybe he was, but I never felt a single thing for him, guess I wasn’t as blind to his charm as Emili was. I still can’t believe she would overlook Marc for Lance, he was the only guy worth rooting for and my favorite character, despite his small part in the story.

The author knows the ropes on being young, these characters were far from perfect, kind of normal and not hard to believe, but still quite irritating. It was until the very end that I started to get along with Emili, she sort of redeems herself a bit into my eyes. There are a few loose threads hanging there as well, so maybe there will be a sequel to tackle those later, I wouldn’t mind checking it out, and after all, this was a nice read you can get caught up with.

    While I was growing up I saw a few kids leave everyone behind to try and be in the “in crowd”. A part of me is interested in this book and another part of me thinks it would be irritating to read lol. I would want to smack the main character. But you do have me interested in the end.

    • Cuzinlogic says:

      I saw a lot of that too. I always tell my kids that the “in crowd” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I also encourage them to be leaders and not followers. I was popular in school because I was cool with everyone, not just the so called “in crowd”.

  2. Hmm… when I started reading your review, this sounded like it could be nice, fun, quick read, but I do tend to get annoyed with “dumb” characters, so I think I’ll probably skip it. I dunno, though, it is pretty short, so maybe it’d be worth a quick look at.
