He’s a young, up and coming businessman with the keys to his family’s Italian wine enterprise.
I’m a fine arts student, navigating life in the Big Apple, my pencil and sketchpad in hand.
We meet. We fall in love.
But it’s not that story.
Sometimes, by a rare gift of fate, two lives cross paths. And hey, if that happens to occur when staring at Michelangelo’s naked masterpiece, even better. We can tell our future children how a seventeen-foot tall marble guy named David brought us together.
But there’s always more to a relationship than its beginning and ever after. In life, there’s a whole lot of backstory. There are ex-fiancés and hot roommates and family members whose advice continues, even beyond the grave.
When you say you love someone, it’s never just that one person you’re saying it to. And it’s never just that one moment that sets everything in motion.
There is always more that draws you in.
This is one of those books that I have no idea how or what to write in a review. I do know what things I want to include in it, but I don't know how to approach them and how to make a review out of them. The interesting thing is that those books are always books I liked. If I didn't like it, I'd be able to write a review in 5 minutes. So yes, this book was great and I liked it!
Julie and Leo meet under quite funny circumstances, in front of Michelangelo's naked statue of David. Later, they meet again in New York and that's where their releationship starts. After that, it's only a great love story.
I loved both Julie and Leo's character. They were both original and lovable, the kind of characters you immediately click with. You are able to connect with them because they are just two ordinary people in love, no exagerations, nothing much special about them, and that's what draws you to them. Okay, Leo may be a billionaire, but from his actions you can say he's just as much down to earth as you are. He is funny and charming, but again, not in that bookish way we are used to. Julie is an art student with an exceptional gift for drawing. Like Leo, there is nothing too special about her, but still, she quickly becomes one of your favorite charactes just because you are able to connect with her. I loved how she knows she is not perfect, but accepts it nonetheless.
The connection between them and their whole relationship was amazing. I found it so funny how Julie would say really weird things, but Leo worked hard to understand her. I often cought myself laughing out loud at something one of them would say. Or even someone of the secondary characters. Julie's best friend Ian, also sounds like a great guy. Someone I could imagine being my best friend. When author is able to achieve something like this, you know they are a good author and they know what they are doing.
If you choose to read Draw Me In, which I highly recommend you to do, I can assure you that you will get your dose of laugh, but also some tears may fall, but the most important thing is, that you will get to meet amazing characters and their love story.
