Innocents (Dusty #1) by Mary Elizabeth & Sarah Elizabeth REVIEW

The girl with an innocent heart knows all about bad choices, but has yet to make them for herself. Searching for freedom, she finds it in the delinquent down the hall.

The troublemaker with summer-sky blue eyes knows he should stay away, but can’t resist the blissful wonder who makes his house a home.

She’s a hopeless romantic. He’s just hopeless.

She’s his reason, but he might not catch her when she falls.

She loves him. He loves her crazy.

This is what happens when a love made of secrets is kept with rules instead of promises.


4.5 Poetic Stars

Wow, what a book! This is a tale of 2 young children who fall in love amongst chaos, drugs, booze, good friends and complicated family. We journey through the teenage years of Leighlee Bliss and Dusty, and I was surprised to find I enjoyed reading about a girl who is 13/14/15 fall in love and get her heart broken by the boy who she can’t say no to.

Let me tell you about Dusty, he is 2 and a half years older than Bliss and although she is his calm, his love, he is also heavily addicted to drugs and booze. He chooses to do this because he doesn’t believe he is good enough and grew up seeing his parents love destroy each other. I spent the first half of the book frustrated by his actions, and doubted his true intentions but we got the odd chapter from his POV which helped me understand his fucked up mind.

The writing was very poetic, I liked it and thought it flowed beautifully for the most part and I felt immersed in the story and I think I will remember this book for a long time. I need more, and am highly anticipating the final part to their crazy love story. The story ends on a bit of a cliffhanger and leads into book 2, Delinquents.

About the Authors

Mary Elizabeth

Mary Elizabeth is an up and coming author who finds words in chaos, writing stories about the skeletons hanging in your closets.

Known as The Realist, Mary was born and raised in Southern California. She is a wife, mother of four beautiful children, and dog tamer to one enthusiastic Pit Bull and a prissy Chihuahua. She’s a hairstylist by day but contemporary fiction, new adult author by night. Mary can often be found finger twirling her hair and chewing on a stick of licorice while writing and rewriting a sentence over and over until it’s perfect. She discovered her talent for tale-telling accidentally, but literature is in her chokehold. And she’s not letting go until every story is told.
