Incomplete by Lindy Zart Review with Excerpt & Giveaway

Book Info-
By- Lindy Zart

Expected Publication Date-September 6th

There are three absolute truths in Grayson Lee’s life:

 1. His existence was a mistake.

2. No one is good enough for his best friend, Lily Jacobs, especially not him.

3. He loves her anyway.


“What are we doing here?” Lily asks as I shut and lock the door behind us, laughing when I wiggle my eyebrows at her. Her eyes narrow. “What deviant things do you have planned?”

“What deviant things do you want me to have planned?” I flip a set of light switches and the bar is partially lit up.

She shrugs. “You brought me to your favorite place. What do you intend to do with me?”

“Don’t you know by now?” I slowly make my way to her, my eyes trailing up the length of her black shorts and purple tank top and fixating on her eyes.

“Know what?” Lily swallows, fidgeting as I advance.

You, Lily Jacobs, are my favorite place.”

Lily starts to reply as I grab her around the waist and spin her around, loving the sound of the giggle she lets out, loving the way she feels in my arms, just loving her. Around and around we go, until I’m dizzy, until I try to stop and stumble instead. Lily squeals, clutching my arms when I sway on my feet. I stop us with my back against the edge of the counter of the bar, each of us catching our breath.

“Grayson, we’re in a bar.”


“What are we doing here?”

I look around said bar, my eyes lingering on the jukebox in the far corner of the room. “We’re going to play music.”

“Music. Got it.”

A grin captures my mouth. “And we’re going to dance.”

Lily nods her head. “Dancing. Check.”

“And maybe even sing.”

“I am not singing, Grayson!”

“Aw, come on. It’ll be fun. We can sing a duet, Sonny and Cher or something.”

Something that sounds strangely like a curse is muttered by Lily and my grin deepens as I start the jukebox. ‘Here’s To Never Growing Up’ by Avril Lavigne slams through the room, causing Lily to jump.

“Did you even ask your bosses if this was okay? Are we going to be arrested?” she shouts, cupping her mouth with her hands.

An eye roll is the only acknowledgement her words get. I walk into the open room used for EY, stop in the middle of the room, and motion to her. “Come on. Don’t be shy.”

Her arms uncross and she does an eye roll especially for me, but Lily is smiling. She sporadically shakes her hips as she makes her way to me, dipping backward at one point and making my mouth go dry. She defied the laws of gravity with that move. My girlfriend is awesome.

“Okay, Grayson. You asked for it. Just remember that,” she says as she tugs the ponytail holder from her hair and shakes out the black waves. Lily messes up her hair, purses her lips, and starts jumping up and down in a circle, completely shameless as she jams out to Avril. I watch her, mesmerized and astounded, and so completely turned on it is embarrassing.

She grabs my hands, pulling me along with her. We move together, ours hips bumping, our fingers entwining and releasing, laughing as we give in to the pull of the beat. ‘Cecilia’ by Simon and Garfunkel plays after that. I sing along, bouncing to the music, Lily grinning widely as she dances with me. Endless minutes pass with us in the throes of sound and being carefree. This moment, right now, is one I will cherish for all time. Even as I am living it, I understand the significance of this span of time. We are free, laughing, and in love.   

My Review: 5 stars
This was an amazing book. I love, love reading from a guys point of view, and this one was awesome to say the least. I loved the thought that Grayson put into everything that he did and said. I loved that he tortured himself by trying to stay away from Lily - not because he tortured himself, but because he was thinking of her and putting her feelings first. I am so pissed off at Lily right now. I can't believe that she would do what she did to him. Then to keep sending him things, leaving things for him. She can't have it both ways. What she did was worse in my opinion, because he at least was trying to be honorable about it. She was selfish, and while I understand why she did what she did, it doesn't mean that it made things any better for either of them. And that last bit she pulled. Damn. Rip a guys heart out, why don't you? Bitch. I'm just pissed at her right now for hurting Grayson so badly. I really can't wait for the second book to come out to find out what happens next. I really think that Grayson deserves a HEA ending after everything he's been through, and I hope he gets it. As you can see, Lindy does a great job of getting at least me to connect with her characters. The storyline was just beautiful, painful, heart-wrenching, joyful, and so many other emotions that make you feel too deeply. I loved this book. I highly recommend it.
