Dating meets destiny a new site of dating
I could never be that way, but my biological father was, among many other wretched things, a cheater.That being said, there are still situations in which I can understand cheating and be fine with it. For this reason and others, I believed that in the case of Beatle Meets Destiny, it would be one of the few I could stand. For me, Beatle and Destiny's "relationship" is blackened by the fact that he's with someone else and refuses to let that someone go before beginning another relationship.Somehow they seem to find it more exciting to be with someone who is forbidden.But if they left the person they're already with, the forbidden-fruit factor would be gone.Like when you’re watching a contestant on X Factor hit the stage and you know they’re singing a ballad and you’re hunkering for the Guy-Sebastian-Climb-Every-Mountain moment. The sort of “nice” your Aunt gives you as a compliment. I would recommend reading this if you feel like picking up something pretty. Don't read it if a boy, any boy, has recently pissed you off and reading about dumb things boys do, played out over 290 pages, will piss you off even more.... Beatle Meets Destiny has all the makings of an Aussie YA cult classic.At the final third, I got genuinely excited that a clever twist was going to take place and all the overlapping was about to amount to something very clever… but sadly the story took the all-too familiar circle it had been playing round and round with since the beginning. Beatle Meets Destiny was read by both me and the delectable Miss Reynje (that’s Team Reynley to you GR Punters) as part of the Great Aussie Coast-to-Coast Read-a-long. Set in Melbourne, it's completely charming with it's off-beat feel, whimsical yet sexy romance and huge belly-aching moments.Sloane is adamant that a man who held her hostage and tortured her years ago in Afghanistan and was believed to have been killed following her rescue, is alive and in D. Now, Vance and Gibbs fear Sloane is willing to risk everything to destroy him.Imagine your name is John Lennon, only everyone calls you Beatle.
They want the best of both worlds: they want to have the nice, perfect girlfriend/boyfriend to show off to family and friends; but they also want another person on the side with whom they can indulge in all of their lusty whims.This book is told in past-tense third-person, which If you asked me what I thought this novel was trying to do, I would say that Beatle Meets Destiny is your classic Boy Meets Girl story that the author is aiming to retell and revitalise for the contemporary teen market. Well, this review is going to run a little on the classic principle of breaking it down into the good, the bad and the ugly The Good: Firstly, I have to say that what I totally love is the narrator's voice.This book is told in past-tense third-person, which surprised me at first, as I am so used to the majority of YA being told from the first person POV, but I was refreshingly surprised and delighted by this.The book also runs along the classic lines of a comedy of errors - mistaken identity, hidden truths, wild co-incidences and hilarious overlapping of character arcs. But in the context of my wardrobe, what does it really mean to me? " as their star-crossed romance plays out like a hip, fixed-gear,oversized-spectacled Venn diagram and I-don't-think-you-need-to-be-a-scientist-to-work-out-the-ensuing-ending. The ending was cute, but I wasn’t overly convinced of any of the emotions displayed from either Beatle or Destiny during it.Does it mean as much as my favourite pair of comforting flannel jammies I cuddle down into after a long day? Apart from having a fun time reading it (I had a ball), did it actually leave an impression? And for all its wonderful characters, I felt that his long-suffering girlfriend character (Cilla) was given a raw deal by the author.
