The Mason List

The Mason List
by: SD Hendrickson

Should you read it?: Yes
Category: New Adult

From Amazon: When I was eight, my mother was dying of cancer, my father lost his job, and the bank kicked us out of our house. I was forced to move to the strange town of Arlis, Texas where my father and I slept in our car in the hospital parking lot. Desperate and hopeless, we lived on fumes of our former life.

Then one night, everything changed forever. A knock on the car window brought a family into my life that I only wanted to shut out. I hated charity and I hated the Masons. Well, except one. He made it impossible to hate him.

Jess Mason had the biggest blue eyes and ornery smile of any boy I had ever seen. He was a ray of sunshine in my dark world. A boy full of adventure, dragging me across the meadow of Sprayberry Ranch; a beautiful Texas paradise full of horses and tree houses that got us into more trouble than anyone ever imagined.

Jess was my everything as a kid until we grew up and the rules changed. Instead of living happily ever after with a boy full of love. . . I destroyed it.

Things I Liked: I LOVED seeing the development of their relationship over the course of their lives. It’s not something I need in every single book I read because it did take a lot of time to get through all of it, but it was so great to dive through all that and see how it came to be - how friendship turned to love.

I loved the character of Jess Mason. He is so true to her and such a great friend. He’s also so fun and he works hard and he just was a fun book boyfriend to read about!

Things I Didn’t: Okay, I was a little annoyed by Alex throughout this book. Granted I have never been in her situation, but there were several times when I was just like COME ON!!!! I may have yelled at her a few times…

Overall: Seriously epic.

Finished on June 26, 2015
