In an effort to disappear from the disappointing life she was living, Addie packed up her car in the middle of the night. She began driving, aimlessly, in search of a new life away from everyone and everything she'd ever known. Unsure of what she was even looking for, one brief stranger encounter opened her up to a new world. And better than that, one small, simple dare held the possibility of changing the only life she had ever known.
Six Days explores a girl's adventure in running away from her previous life, after a heartache that made her take that decision. Leaving behind a broken relationship, Addie, moves to another town, where she finds Mallory, her life gets better because she offers her a job and that was the start of their friendship.
Mallory has some awesome friends and tries to make Addie a part of their gang. She takes her to a party where she meets most of them, but one of them really stands out. Griffin is the handsome guy with the grey-blue eyes that captures her interest, but there's also a mystery surrounding him.
The gang has a thing to dare each other with something big and motivating to actually do with their lives. This year they add Addie's name in the box and Griffin is the one who has to dare her. A dare that will make Addie get the adventure she craved, but will also bring them closer.
He was one of the 'guys' though, one of the group, so I wasn't sure this would ever go anywhere. Just a nice guy, trying to show the new girl a good time.
I have to admit that when I got this book, I didn't enjoy the first part, I wasn't feeling it so I ended up leaving it aside. Being the person who never DNF a book, I decided to pick it up two months later. When I actually reached the dares, I have to say that i really enjoyed them and Griffin's character was quite charming. It was sweet and fun and I was just jealous, wishing I'd be there with them.
But sadly the book around 90% went downhill for me. Something happened that caused another reaction that I have to admit I didn't admire as much. The fact that I got a scare about a love triangle possibility at that part says enough. And even though I usually don't mind love triangles, I just couldn't understand why the author decided to give right then those vibes. They weren't sitting well with me, especially after the couple had bonded and all that and especially considering the situation that the hero was dealing with at that moment. I don't know, I just wasn't okay with that.
I felt like I had done more with him in six days than I had done most of my life. All the heartache of being alone, being left by parents, the situation with Grant; it felt so far away in these moments with Griffin.
I also didn't like the fact that we didn't explore much her past. I mean, I expected some action, maybe the ex making an appearance -since she had ran away from him? Or at least discussing about her past with her new friends or with Griffin. She just threw it out there in a moment and I didn't get the reaction I needed or anything that would make me feel for her.
Overall, it was just okay. I liked the dares and I was having a good time with them and how they were getting closer. But the situation around 90% made me lower my rating. Hopefully others will enjoy it more than I did.
