Summary from Goodreads:

Love is unstoppable…

At twenty-eight, Matt Sky has the perfect life. He has a beautiful girlfriend, a massive inheritance, and four national bestsellers — all penned under his airtight alias, M. Pierce.

At twenty-seven, Hannah Catalano has a train wreck. Her boyfriend is a deadbeat and her job is abysmal.

Matt and Hannah meet online as writing partners. Their relationship is safe, anonymous, and innocent…

Until Matt sees a picture of Hannah.

Hannah’s picture sparks an attraction Matt is powerless to ignore. When circumstance brings Matt and Hannah together, the strangers begin a love story that’s passionate, poignant, unforgettable, and unstoppable.

My Thoughts:

****Possible Spoilers****

HOLY FREAKING HELL!!!! I was bowled over!!! From the very first conversation to the last words uttered in this book, my life will never be the same! I’m making a “list” of ways this book has changed me. LOL! I’ve never read a book like this before and I’m pretty sure I NEVER will again! M. Pierce whoever you are, whatever you are, you’re a freaking genius and should be given a damn Pulitzer!

I still honestly can’t believe I’m putting this into words because my brain still feels all mushy and scrambled! BUT… here it goes. I was intrigued from the first line of this tale. Hook, line, and sinker! I ate up every word and devoured it with reckless abandonment! I felt like with every word, every sentence, and every turn of the page I was digging my own grave and I didn’t care. I wanted to get deeper and more absorbed into the lives of these two completely diverse people! The need, the loneliness, the angst, the sex, the love, the humor, the dread, and most importantly the acceptance.

Matthew a.k.a. Night.Owl is so unlike any other leading male character I’ve read before. He has so much power and knows how to use it, but throughout this tale he seems to lose it and it wounded me to see him suffer even though he was in the wrong. His “assholery” was very refreshing and for some reason my mind wanted, no needed that to make me feel the complete chaos that he was. It’s like he wanted to know so many things about Hannah, but he knew wanting those things were wrong on so many levels, but he couldn’t stop himself. He made me want so many things for him and he made me make sure my B.O.B. had new batteries!!! From his dirty blonde hair to his beautiful green eyes, he made my heart skip a beat with that dynamite smile of his. How was it you describe his smile M. Pierce? “Matt’s smirks came in flavors- two parts kindness, one part wicked amusement, a little lust in the mix. Oh, and one hundred percent smug bastard.”

This beautiful, free spirited, hard working, and lovable “Little.Bird” Hannah had me at “hello.” She was so agreeable to just about everything that was asked of her, but seriously, she didn’t really have anything else and nothing to lose, so why not! Hannah was that girl that would bend over backwards for her friends and family and be fierce to those who tried to hurt any of her loved ones. I was almost frightened for her at times, but it seemed what I thought might be terrifying or fearful, turned out to be vibrant and alive. Funny how things can come full circle and after pushing through some shadows, you finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Hannah was my light! She pulled me through this ordeal with her courage and her sturdiness.

“Always, Matt, always speaking to me from any mouth but your own. Don’t you know that I love you? I see you under all your lies, and I always find you.” That line right there solidified my love for that smart Little.Bird!

The build up and tension leading to the climax was exhilarating and rewarding. It doesn’t end the way I expected it to and I’m not sure if I could say it’s a cliffhanger or not! You’ll just have to pick up your own copy and be the judge. I, myself will be a forever “fan-girl” of this remarkable author and will bite my nails till the next installment comes out. Please God, make it come out soon!!! Pretty please with tons of sugar, honey, and whipped cream on top!!! After 233 (Kindle version) pages of this fucked up, wonderful story, I’m here to say, GO BUY IT!!

    Wow! I’ve seen a lot of enthusiastic reviews for Night Owl, I think yours tops them all. I have to admit, I’m still on the fence about this one, bc a few of my friends took serious issue with some of Matt’s actions. I guess I’ll have to try it and see!
