With complex characters, this is more than just a love triangle
Interested in a three way? You might be after reading this book. In Perfectly Powerless, book one of the War at Waversea series, Abigail Cole brings to life three very interesting and complex characters. It's not often that I get to read three perspectives in a romance but this one really shines light on Rhys, Clayton and Harper, three completely fascinating characters - each with their own burdens that affect their choices.
In Perfectly Powerless, we are brought into the world of Waversea College - where Rhys Waversea is king, where Clayton, a scholarship student, refuses to bow before him, and where Harper, who was deafened in an accident, is just trying to have a normal college experience. Someone should have told her to pick a different school because there is nothing normal about Waversea. Rhys, who could be seen as the villain of the piece if the story were that simple, is one pissed off individual. He has his reasons for being the way he is - which is a - insert expletive here. When Harper refuses his advances and inadvertently picks Clayton over Rhys - at least in Rhys' mind - Rhys is determined to destroy her. And if messing with Clayton - the only other person who doesn't cower from him - is a byproduct of that, all the better. But soon Harper finds herself attracted to both guys and isn't sure what to do about it. The three move in a strange dance throughout the story which makes for a book you can't put down.
Perfectly Powerless is part bully romance, part college romance, part soapy drama - and I can't wait to read more from the series. Cole writes each character in an intimate way. She brings the reader into her world and soon we are living and breathing her characters, even the twisted ones. We desperately feel for them and crave what they crave, and we're just as wrapped up in their drama as they are. I can't wait to read the sequel to this story - I find myself not yet ready to abandon the world of Waversea. Perfectly Powerless is live now so you can download it and start off your New Year right.
