Release Blitz: The Evolution of Us by D. Kelly

Title: The Evolution of Us
Author: D. Kelly
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: October 11, 2017


They say most people meet the person they will marry while in high school. Balancing one another perfectly, Holly Ryan and Declan James were together through most of college—until their relationship blew up, leaving Declan with more questions than answers.

For the past two years, Declan has tried everything he can think of to earn Holly’s forgiveness, but even if he manages to help her let go of the past and give them another chance at happiness, she still has a secret. Not to mention, she can’t get over the revolving door of women he seems to have coming in and out of his apartment.

Declan is desperate to prove to Holly she’s the one for him and isn’t above using his celebrity status or enlisting the help of their friends to win her back. All’s fair in love and war, right?

My thoughts: 

So... this book was just eh for me. I had high hopes given the premise, but it just didn't live up to those expectations. Both Declan and Holly drove me nuts with their lack of open and honest communication and while I'm no stranger to the "man-ho" trope, in this instance it doesn't jive well with Declan's declaration of undying love. I did like what the secondary characters, Sage and Bax, brought to the table. I also dug the authors method of storytelling, jumping back and forth in time so that the evolution (see what I did there?) of Holly and Dean's love story was experienced in a more circular than linear fashion. All in all, I give the book 3 out of 5 wine glasses and I'm not quite sure whether I'd go back for more...
