“I don’t live like you do, Poesy.”
“Tell me how it feels.”
“To struggle? To not know where your next meal will come from or if you’ll be able to pay the rent? You don’t want to know how that feels.”
“No, tell me how it feels to live with people who love you.”

Sometimes you just need a little bit more. A little more background on the characters…well, just a little more. After falling in love with Poesy and Lowen in Low, we felt we just needed a little more introduction and build up to the intense love they shared and that’s exactly what Mary Elizabeth has given us in Poesy.

‘He’s my favorite thing. The most precious one. The only person who’s ever loved me unconditionally and totally.’

Low was a heart pounding, emotional and thrilling modern day Bonnie and Clyde romance that had us gripped in its every exhilarating moment and the only issue we had was that we would have loved the relationship between Poesy and Lowen to have been explored a little further prior to the commencement of the crux of the story.

‘It’s him and me. The boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and the girl from the right side. Villain and hero. Worthless and worthy.’

With Poesy we got what we wished for. Poesy begins from the first time Low and Poesy met, so we get to connect with them from the very beginning and it was a welcome insight into this period of their lives.

Starved of affection, in Low, Poesy found the love and protection she was always denied by her emotionally stinted parents. In their eyes, Poesy was an inconvenience to be ignored as much as possible. What she had in material wealth, she lacked severely in physical and emotional wealth, Low provided that for Poesy.

‘He’s hard where I am soft. He’s big where I am small. He’s calm where I am crazy.’

For those who loved this couple in Low, we recommend grabbing this book. For those who haven’t read Low, we must warn that the epilogue contains a HUGE spoiler for Low and it therefore our recommendation that if you are new to these books that you read Poesy, skip over the epilogue and head straight into Low – then come back to read the epilogue from Poesy’s pov.

LOW by MARY ELIZABETHOur review

‘I live for the way she lightly bites my tongue when we kiss, and wish I were a better man every time she whispers, “I love you” against my lips.’

lowSYNOPSIS

It’s hard living on the wrong side of the tracks.

Lowen Seely has a criminal record to prove it. Determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps, he fights instinct and tries honesty. But hunger becomes painful, and bills are due. Forced to choose between what is right and wrong, the boy from the hood learns abiding by the rules is nearly impossible when corruption is in your blood.

Falling for an outlaw has changed everything.

Poesy Ashby is the definition of ride or die, even when it means turning her back on freedom. The girl from the suburbs gives conformity the middle finger. Bonnie and Clyde have nothing on her love story.

On the run with consequences in the rearview mirror, Lowen and Poesy accept the truth: they are the bad guys.

But can they get away with their crimes?
