Volt is my best friend.
And nothing but my best friend.
Natalie and Sara keep telling me there’s something more going on beneath the surface, but that’s not true.
Volt is a manwhore.
And a heartbreaker.
We’re better off as friends.
At least that’s what I keep telling myself…
We are on yet another roller coaster that i wish that i could get off. While i’m all for a dynamic ‘should we or shouldn’t we situation, this one is getting to be a bit much with the amount of whip lash. The challenge with Volt and Taylor is that they don’t admit to themselves what they want until it’s too late and they both don’t acknowledge their faults.
Volt is too quick to judge and cut people off, which is what he did to Sara and what he does here to Taylor. Taylor on the other hand doesn’t let things just lay where they should. She allows moments of reprieve from time to time and in moments after that, she allows the smallest things to ruin what could be great.
The bulk of this story though is still watching them deny what they are to each other. Taylor is in a relationship with someone else, and seems to be happy until she always chooses to be with Volt and manage him instead of her boyfriend. I can only imagine how that feels to Sage, the bf, and i’m not surprised when he makes his point and feelings clear.
Volt realizes FINALLY That he wants to be what Taylor needs but his problem is that he’s already established that he’s not that kind of guy, and we also know that he’s hiding quite a few things from her which will of course blow up in their faces. The biggest perhaps is that his father is her boss….no way that’s going to end well since his father doesn’t rate Taylor.
So we watch this relationship implode before it even starts and then we watch far too many false starts. I think they are both masochists to an extent to keep allowing this to happen to each other, but it’s also like a car wreck where i have no choice but to continue to read.
On the other hand, at least we have some happy thoughts happening with Natalie and Jared. They didn’t see what was in front of them until someone else came in the way, and they finally figure out how to make it work. We don’t get to dive too deeply into it, but i think that’s the moment of happiness and bliss that this series deserves.
Where we are left off in this one is yet another fight, another bunch of lies and well, it’s no shocker that Taylor and Volt can’t find a way to be together. Honestly, i think it’s for the best at this point, and i can’t wait to see how the Volt (Muriel)/Sara thing explodes since that HAS to happen soon. Enjoy!
