The author sent me the eBook in exchange for my honest review. In no way has this changed my opinion on the novel or the following review.
Teghan has been waiting for college..for well, ever. She couldn't wait to get out from under her manipulative and controlling father and away from her now ex high school sweetheart, Alex. But what she didn't expect? To get pregnant by her ex-boyfriends room mate, Donny.
Honestly.. everything just felt a little stiff. It was all so he-said she-said. Now, the story had great potential, but it all just fell a little flat. There wasn't anything that would set it apart from the millions of other New Adult books out on the market these days. The ending, yeah, it was something. But when I thought I was supposed to be all into it, gripping the edge of my seat.. I wasn't. Actually, I was more tired of the constant Teghan drama and Donny's clingy-ness. He does come in to save the day at New Years..but eh. I just wasn't feeling it.
Omigod, that ending. I didn't feel a real twist because we all knew what her dad had done. But the idea of it is certainly something else and I can't quite wrap my head around it. That is the novels one saving grace.
I'll be honest with you. I never expected all that from this slim little PDF file. Never. At times, I wanted to strangle Teghans dad..then Donny.. then Alex. I just have a real issue with controlling people. Okay, personal issues aside, I thought the novel was had great potential but it fell too flat. But will I want to read the sequel to Death of a Waterfall? Uh, yeah. Let's all go watch Donny reach his breaking point.
