Description taken from Goodreads.
So… Lainey and Micah, huh?
Before going any further, I’m just going to point you to the most helpful resource for finding out if you really want to read this book or not, which would be to read Paula’s almost 100 word review of NEW MUSIC.
But what I thought.
I’ll be perfectly honest when I say that one thing I didn’t agree with in LAINEY, even though I didn’t care too much, was how involved Lainey was with Jason. Even just for that reason, I liked Lainey’s relationship with Micah more. It felt bigger than Jason.
And yes, for people who have read this story, I had to put that in there. XD
This is a sweet, short story about Micah realizing that he might really love Lainey and Lainey realizing that she might really love Micah. I really enjoyed seeing a look into their lives after LAINEY and, especially, getting Micah’s perspective into their relationship. If you enjoyed INFINITE REPEAT but wanted more of them, and if you read LAINEY and you wanted a deeper look besides them crushing on each other, then I would recommend reading this.
Overall, a great, short story that I think really explains Lainey and Micah’s relationship and gives me more daydreaming/shipping material. All things said, I still don’t agree with Lainey’s sex life, but I did enjoy this story and LAINEY AND MICAH. Best Valentine’s gift ever. :D 3.8 stars.
