Review: Callum & Harper

Callum & Harper
by Fisher Amelie 
Summary (goodreads)
Life sucks for orphans Callum Tate and Harper Bailey. 

Kicked out of their foster homes because they suffer the 'eighteen disease' with nothing but a hundred dollar check from the government and a pat on the back, they're forced to rely on a system that failed them miserably. 

So they sit. They sit inside Social Services, waiting for their social workers to call their names and offer them the miracle they know will never come but they sit anyway because they have nowhere else to go, no other options on their very literal and figurative empty plates. 

But as they sit, they notice the other. Although captivated, they each come to the conclusion that life is complicated enough without throwing in a boiling tension that can't ever be acted upon because they're both too busy thinking about where their next meal will come from but when their names are called and both are placed on a year long waiting list for permanent housing, suddenly relying on each other seems like a very viable plan B. 

And, oh, how lovely Plan B's can be. 

Well, except for the psycho from Harper's past that haunts her and, oh, yeah, there's the little issue that neither of them knows they're in love with the other. 

Needless to say, Callum & Harper's life just got a bit more complicated. 

“One day, you and I are gonna’ wake up and be alright. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but one day. One day. I promise you.” - Callum Tate

Yah, I am FINALLY reviewing this book!  I read it about a month ago, and I haven't gotten around to reviewing it.  Not because I didn't have time, or I thought the book was bad or anything like that BUT I did have one little problem....
How do you write a review when the book is just TOO AWESOME for words?.... well here is my attempt.

I have never had this much difficulty finding words, and I even re-read the book just to try to grasp it a little bit more because I was in such love crazed daze the first time through.

Well first of all, I love Fisher Amelie, and this is probably my favorite book of 2011!

The Romance
Callum & Harper had such a sweet love.  It came out of necessity for each other when they really didn't have anything else to cling onto.  They had lost everything, but they found one another.  Callum & Harper did have that initial connection, but it didn't feel forced.  I liked how they weren't professing their love for one another after a day of knowing each other, but they did have that immediate love-at-first-sight moment.  Their relationship was just able to develop throughout the book, and it flourished with each new situation they faced together.

The Characters
Callum & Harper fit together like a completed puzzle.  They were the strength to the other's weakness.  Harper is a cheeky, trouble maker sometimes, and she just puts a lot of humor in the book.  Callum was the guy every girl swoons over.  He would do anything to protect and provide for Harper, and he is definitely the rock in the relationship.  What more can you ask for in your male lead?  I also really fell in love with Charlie and Cherry!  I'm not really one to pay attention to supporting characters, but these guys were just fun.  They were the support Callum & Harper never had before, and the relationship they have is entertaining.

I think that's all the words I can find folks!
P.S. I totally used Fisher's music muses to write this review.  They are really good, and you should check them out on her Facebook fan page linked below.
