Desperately Seeking Epic – B.N. Toler

Paul James loved Clara Bateman.
Hating her would have been easier.
She was the past, and he was hell-bent on keeping her there.
Or so he thought…

Craigslist Ad: DESPERATELY SEEKING EPIC

You’re my father.
I don’t know much about you. I know your name is Paul James, you’re a thrill seeker, and once upon a time you did stunts and people called you ‘Epic.’
I’ve been told you don’t know about me. That it’s complicated.
But for me it’s simple.
Here’s the thing: I’m twelve years old…and I’m dying.
And as much as this could crush my mother, I have to meet you before I go.
In time, I’m sure she’ll understand. She’s still in love with you.
So, Epic, if you read this, please come back. You don’t have to be my dad. You don’t even have to tell me you love me or you’re sorry. Just come see me.

Patiently waiting, but running out of time,

Neena

MY REVIEW
There were times that i loved this book and then there were times that i was a bit bored and it was Neena that saved the day, she was such a sweet heart and i did shed a few tears towards the end. I really wanted to like it more than i did.
I think i couldnt really connect with Clara and i cannot seem to put my finger on why, i did love Epic and the relationship he built with Neena in the short time he got to share with her.
The secondary characters were neither here nor there really, they didnt bring much to the story which seemed to be focused around Neena, Epic and Clara.
I feel like i needed a little more of the romance, this book seemed to be lacking that aspect i didnt get any sort of connection between Epic and Clara.
