Title: Something Blue
Author: Kristy Nicolle
In the city of Monopolis where happily ever after is just a scientific formula away, Valentine Morland has been waiting nine years for her day to come. Now it’s here, and she will marry the man of her dreams, a stranger to her, before being swept off to life of carefree luxury and bliss, courtesy of the Jigsaw Project. However, all is not as Valentine imagined as her new husband is quickly discovered as not the man of her dreams, but one who claims he isn’t capable of love at all. Harbouring an intense paranoia for the system, which upholds the very idealist fantasy that Valentine holds so dear, Clark threatens to throw her into a world, not of bliss, but of scary consequence where her every emotion is under scrutiny. Can it be that the scientific formula with a 99% success rate got it all wrong, or is everything in the world of Bliss Inc. more sinister than it seems?

I received an ARC for an honest review. Well, I need to get the paperback of this baby!
Wow! Just wow! Really there are no words to describe…. I honestly thought it was going to be plain romance and nothing more. Boy was I wrong. Kristy describes a almost to familiar world we live today that destroyed the world. So, someone had to step up and put laws and rules. The rules had to be followed with no buts and ifs. Would you live in a world that made the decisions for you? Who to marry? Well, Valentine and Clark are arranged to be married. Any girls dream is to meet the one and loose their virginity to the one they love. Well, in this case Valentine’s marrying to a complete stranger because she has to; because Clark is her matchmate. Life changes as soon she sees him and finds out more of Bliss Inc… Will she be able to make a difference or continue being a nieve girl and enjoy being married. Kristy goes on in details in how everything is being controlled and how they live. They live devided such as women cities, male cities, and couples complexes with no interaction with the other species and as well with the couples. The technology sounds awesome but i wouldn’t want that kind of life style. It is c-r-a-z-y! Makes me realize that we should appreciate that we have our freedom. Anyways, back to the book. The world they live if they are chosen and not a labourer get housing and live with the other chosen. And receive everything they need. It must be nice to have everything just so that you may prepare for marriage and have children. But like I said things happen and with a uexpected twists and turns of events turn their life around. Very enjoyable and not disappointing. I highly recommend this book. Oh, by the way its not short and very detailed . Happy reading.
Writing has always been an escape for me. I can imagine bizarre new worlds, create entirely new living species and dream up all kinds of odd and absurd scenarios. I love it, and always will do. Its my life. Even now, while preparing for to begin my Masters degree in 21st century literature, I am always searching for fresh inspiration. I live in England, in the city of Lincoln but originally hail from Norwich. If I am not concocting up mad magical ideas, I am usually curled up in bed reading, Modelling or adding to my vintage book collection. The power of the written word is marvellous, and I am continually finding myself learning, and exploring all its shadowy corners. I spend hours and hours combing through texts, books and words and quite frankly, it is exhausting.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
