Review: Low (Low #1) by Mary Elizabeth

****3.5 Stars****
Lowen and Poesy met whilst Low was doing a landscaping job in Poesy's parents garden. Low's family is dirt poor and all he want's to do is make it better but he makes it much much worse through desperation and ends up in prison. Fast forward a couple of years and Poesy has kept her word and waited on the outside for him, but they can't stay on the straight and narrow when life throw's them to many hard situatio...ns. Can they keep their heads above water? I am afraid you have to read it to find out!
I am sad to say I kinda struggled with this book but I am sure loads have and will love it. I found a lack of character development and background in Poesy's situation and felt there could have been more build up from her past to present and family history etc. I also felt Low was a bit of a weak male lead and lacked Alpha tendencies that I like my male leads to have. However what lacked in my issues with the book was made up in the fact that the storyline has some originality to it. As I said before I think a lot of people will love this highly anticipated book but sadly it just wasn't my cup of tea. I will however check out the authors other books as I did like the writing style and originality of the story.

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?
