Review: Colorblind by Siera Maley

Colorblind Harper has a secret...and it’s not that she likes girls. She has a rare and special gift: she can see how old other people will be when they pass away. Nothing she does changes this number, and that becomes especially clear when her mother dies in a car crash. With only one other person in the world who knows about and shares her gift, Harper is determined to keep her distance from everyone. Then she falls for Chloe… whose number is 16.
That means that Chloe doesn’t have twelve months to live. She doesn’t even have six.
She is going to be dead by the end of the summer, unless Harper can find a way to stop it.

My Review: 5 Stars

So this is now the second Siera Maley book that I have read and the second Siera Maley book that I have read really quickly.  The only reason that I didn't finish it one night was because it was late and I was tired.  But then I finished it the next morning.  This was an adorable romance and a great story.  It had one very small paranormal element but was completely normal other than that.  And since I've taken a long time to write this review, I have actually read this book twice and loved it just as much the second time.

Harper and Chloe were seriously one of the cutest ships ever and I ship them so much.  They had so much chemistry and a clearly mutual attraction from basically the beginning.  It was a major slow burn waiting for Harper to finally decide to be with Chloe, even if she was going to end up losing her by the end of the summer.  I loved reading this romance so much.  It got to the point when I really just wanted to see them be together, but I loved the journey to get to that point as well.  This is definitely one of my new favorite ships.  
It was interesting to see how Harper's ability to see what age people will die at affected how she lived her life.  It made her more cynical and afraid to get close to people, which made for a lonely life for her.  She was basically only close with her dad, and Robbie, who shared her ability and understood how she felt about it.  Both her dad and Chloe said some very true things to her about how she wasn't really living her life.  They didn't know about the ability, but they did know that she was scared of losing people because of losing her mom.

If you like YA contemporary, read this book.
