Liv hasn’t seen Sebastian since he walked out of her life five years ago. When she accepted her internship in London, she never dreamed their paths would cross again. Not when Sebastian is a celebrity, a singer in one of the most popular boy bands of all times. Living in the same city, their worlds couldn’t be farther apart. But when two people are destined to be together, they can’t outrun fate.

Wonderwall, by this author, is the third I have read by her. She also writes a YA Paranormal/Sci-Fi series titled, Arcadian Wars, two of which I have read and enjoyed. So when I saw this for review, of course I said yes. I received a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Teenagers in love? Not necessarily my go to read, but I do enjoy YA books way more than I ever thought I would. However, this book spans about five years and although it starts out YA, it’s definitely an adult read-or new adult. Liv lives next door to Bas(Sebastian) and they have been friends ever since they can remember. But as these things happen, they end up together, and are each other’s first loves, first everything. Not long after that tragedy strikes and Bas moves away to England and never speaks to Liv again. He has his reasons and at his age and in his grief, it made sense, but maybe not so much anymore. Liv for her part is devastated and understandably, heartbroken. The story jumps forward in time and now Bas is a famous singer for a boy band based in London. He’s the typical bad boy celebrity, cares for nobody, except perhaps his best friend and fellow bandmate, Oliver, and is still trying to forget Liv. Liv goes to London to intern as an events coordinator at an exlusive hotel there. Receipe for them to meet again? Absolutely.
First I need to say, I enjoyed the whole thing. Sure, some of it was a bit contrived-you know because she goes to London to intern when there’s so many places she could have interned at in America, or when Bas mentions to a reporter on tv that he had a stalker when he was younger that he ignored, and he was talking about Liv’s emails. There really was no reason for him to talk about her and lie, five years later. But it did cause a great deal of angst for Liv. But I forgave all of that, because I enjoyed the rest of the story. The whole first part of the book that takes place during their teen years, ends up being a really sweet romance. And Liv’s adventures at the hotel in London, and the people she meets along the way, plus her friends that all come and visit, really added to the story. Bas’s friendships with Oliver, his girlfriend(not Liv), his bandmates, and all his interactions with his horrible manager color his life. He’s not exactly been the perfect celebrity, but again, he does have his demons.
It needs to be said that I am a romantic at heart, so this book was perfect for me in that respect. If you don’t enjoy YA romance, or rock star books, or some angst, well this is not the book for you. But if you do enjoy second chance romance, and rock star books, then this just might be the next book you need to try. Keep in mind that it is for adults. I will be interested to read the next book featuring Oliver.

About M.H. Soars
I always knew creative arts were my calling but not in a million years did I think I would become an author. With a background in fashion design I thought I would follow that path. But one day, out of the blue, I had an idea for a book. One page turned into ten pages, ten pages turned into a hundred, and before I knew, my first novel, The Prophecy of Arcadia, was born.
I live in Florida with my husband and baby daughter. I’m currently working on the Arcadian Wars series, the Elements series, and the Love Me, I’m Famous series.
Arcadian Wars is a YA Paranormal/SciFi Romance series. It follows the life of a group of teens who possess incredible powers and have a very important mission: save their planet and in the process, save Earth too. The first book, The Prophecy of Arcadia, and the novella, The Fall of Arcadia, are already available. The second book, The Phoenix Shadow, will be published in the summer of 2015.
Elements is a new YA Paranormal Romance series. It focuses on two sisters who hold the key to stop a full-blown war between elemental beings and humans. Look for the first book by the end of 2015.
Love Me, I’m Famous is a NA Contemporary Romance series and each book will be a standalone focused on different characters. As the name of the series suggests, at least one of the characters in each book will be somewhat famous. The first book is slated to be published later in 2015.
