Gitte:      I really enjoyed the story of Deo & Whit. It was fast paced and well written. I loved the messages too; that you cannot take anything for granted, you have to live your life and never let your past dictate your future. Also, never to stop living because you feel guilt from the loss of a lost one, ultimately they would want you to continue living with passion.

Jenny:    I loved it too GG, and agree with everything you said.  I thought the message in the book was spot on and I really felt it.

Gitte:      Ok so my thoughts on Deo; a funny and cocky bad boy surfer dude who is incredibly romantic and sensitive! He is at a crossroad in his life and has to make a life changing decision if he wants the girl of his dreams to choose him. I felt like we got to know Deo, understand him, his actions and issues. His POV was very strong and well written, he was pretty amazing! More than once his one liners had me laughing out loud. Deo’s relationship with his Mum and Grandfather was fab, it was not only funny but respectful, I loved it (and I loved the grandfather, he had me in stitches!).

Jenny:      I loved Deo and I loved his POV.  I have to be honest, the laid back “she’ll be right” surfer dude attitude and humour of Deo reminded me of my son.  True!  I loved Deo.  I loved his little idiosyncrasies and thought the authors nailed it for a guy that age! I really connected with him and his fierceness in the way he loved!  The interaction with his Grandad was just priceless and added so much to the book.  Deo and his Mum cracked me up.  Ha! Who knew there were so many different analogies for saying how to have sex.  That cracked me up! Loved it.

Gitte;      Then we have Whit; Whit came across quite tough, edgy and determined. She has a lot of guilt from her past which prevents her from living the life she ultimately wants and needs. She is unable to move on and be truly happy. The walls she has erected around herself made it very hard for me to fully understand her in the beginning. I would have liked her past to be explored more to fully connect with her. Yes, I totally got her emotional distress at what happened to her and how it shaped her actions, however, I wanted to know more of who Whit ultimately was. Once she opened up her heart to Deo (bless this gorgeous boy!!) she came across as sweet and lovable.

Jenny:      I did really like Whit.  She was dealing with a lot of emotional baggage for 19 and I could understand why she would put up the walls she did.  Yes, I did feel like I could shake her sometimes, but then I would remember her age and feel sad for her that for her that she felt she had to take all that responsibility on her shoulders when she shouldn’t have, but I got her.  In saying that, I did feel sorry for Deo because of her.  She certainly put him through the wringer and he was at a total loss with her at times.

Gitte:       What else did I love about this book: I absolutely loved the secondary characters like the Grandfather and Deo’s Mum. Their interactions and dynamics were so well written and had me laughing yet also thinking I wanted to be part of this fabulously crazy family!
Overall I thought Lengths was a funny, sweet and sexy read and I can really recommend it!

Jenny:     I really did love this story and  absolutely loved the dual POV’s.  I thought they worked really well.  It had everything for me.  Family connections, two young people finding a way to cope and deal with feelings that they maybe weren’t prepared for.  Humour, emotion, angst and it had a message about loving, living and moving on that I really felt connected to.   I love that Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt moved into the mature realm for this book because the sex scenes really helped you connect and you could really feel the chemistry between Deo and Whit.  I can’t wait for more from these two authors. Lengths was a really enjoyable read for me and I have no hesitation in recommending it!

    I agree it was a nice read with a sweet love story. I always love a story where the characters grow as the book goes along. Whit’s secret when it came out made me cry. When something tragic happens it is easy to get stuck in the ” what ifs”. This truly was a good read the only thing that would have made it better would have been to read it at the beach.
