All she wants is to get even…
Erika Apostol’s quiet and unassuming life gets disrupted when she learns that Richard Javier, the very same person who broke her heart many years ago, is now back in the country. Her world is turned upside down as old feelings she thought were buried resurface to haunt her once more.
Determined to give Richard a dose of his own medicine, Erika finds herself involved in an outrageous plan devised by her friends. They enlist the help of Jerome Gonzales, an attractive and charismatic DJ (with a playboy reputation), to pose as her significant other.
As the plan goes in full swing, Erika discovers Richard’s jealous side, and that there’s something more to Jerome than meets the eye. Will this grand charade work out the way it should, or will she be left with nothing in the end?
First things first. I saw the post regarding the release of this book through Ms. Mina and I got curious about it. So I checked the Facebook page of Ms. Anne and I really liked the blurb of her book. It made me want to read the story so bad but I don’t have the chance to do so since I’m currently broke right now. Thanks to the blog tour that’s organized by Dia since it gave me the chance to read this wonderful story for free.
Anyhow, let’s get down to business shall we?
In Over Her Head is a light read for me. I finished it in one seating and it made me feel a whirlwind of emotions. It made me smile, laugh, kilig, inis and cry while reading the whole book. The characters were described in such a way that the readers would really feel how the felt and understand the situation that they were in. While reading in my phone, I would sometimes stop and think of the possible things that I could do if I were in the shoes of the characters and that’s a plus since it really means that the book has brought me to that exact scenario. It doesn’t make the readers think or imagine too much since it really comes naturally.
Aside from those, In Over Her Head made me want to fins my own Richard (or Jerome)! Yes, the fact that Richard left Erika made me want to strangle him to death but hey, he came back with the same (or even more intense) feelings for Erika! At times like this, it’s very rare to find a guy that would stay loyal to a girl and that’s a plus for me. Well, for Jerome. He’s really charming! Hahaha.
Thinking back, I really couldn’t think of any negative points for this story. I don’t know why but that’s just the way it is! It’s really well-written and kudos to the author! Two thumbs up for this one.
