Soulmates by Holly Bourne


Every so often, two people are born who are the perfect matches for each other. Soulmates. But while the odds of this happening are about as likely as being struck by lightning, when these people do meet and fall in love…thunderstorms, lightning strikes and lashings of rain are only the beginning of their problems.

Enter Poppy, the 17-year-old cynic with a serious addiction to banana milk, and Noah, the heart-throb guitarist; residents of mediocre Middletown, sometime students, and…soulmates. 

After a chance meeting at a local band night, Poppy and Noah find themselves swept up in a whirlwind romance unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before. But with a secret international agency preparing to separate them, a trail of destruction rumbling in their wake, (and a looming psychology coursework deadline), they are left with an impossible choice between the end of the world, or a life without love…


Poppy, she is a girl who is against, every aspects, every single thing about love. She hates clichés. But then she met Noah, a total hottie guitarist of the band named “Growing Pain”.

And when the night came when Poppy and her best friends, Lizzie, Amanda and Ruth went to watch the new band, when the band started playing, Poppy made an eye contact with Noah then she felt it, she felt that tugging, pulling closer thing that draws them together. Now all they can think about was each other, their feelings for each other.. it’s getting stronger. It’s just too strong they can destroy everything around them, they can kill every people. Dr. Beaumont, Rain and the FBI need to take someone away from another before Noah and Poppy have sex. Unfortunately, Dr. Beaumont and the others succeeded.

I really am shaking and crying and slapping myself after reading this book. WHY? WHY HOLLY? WHY? They were… They were so happy, they don’t even have problems! They were so perfect. But the ending… WHY! I still can’t stop crying and wishing for a book 2, where they can still be with each other but, I know such thing won’t happen. Poppy, just like me hated Cliches, she doesn’t like the idea of love, she’s also very studious, I love her sense of humor and i love how she tried not to fall in love, but eventually did. Noah, he’s too good to be true, a hottie, handsome, talented guy and also he’s so full of himself but in a cute and adorable way, he’s also sweet, loving, caring most of all he’s so true to Poppy. Imagine a guy being that in love to a girl. Yeah, imagine.



“Much as I knew jealousy is a pointless and destructive emotion.”

“I’d wasted tears and hours of anxiety on what? A stupid boy. That wasn’t who I was.”

“I will not let that boy make me feel crap ever again.”
