Review: Poesy by Mary Elizabeth

Title: Poesy
Author: Mary Elizabeth
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Type: Book 0.5 from Low series
POV: First Person – Female

Poesy Ashby grew up in a comfortable middle class family. She was provided with everything she wanted except what she needed the most – parental love.

When their gardener Lowen Seely noticed her, she basked in his attention. A girl from the right side of the track, with a boy from the wrong side of the track brought together by love that showed love could survive any hard road.

I love Low and Poesy in Low. Now we get to see how their love blossomed amidst the thorns.

“Tell me how it feels,”
“To struggle? To not know where your next meal will come from or if you’ll be able to pay the rent? You don’t want to know how that feels.”
“No. Tell me how it feels to live with people who love you.”

Poesy’s family life was sad. For a girl who has everything, deep down she was just a lonely and in need of emotional support and she gave back ten fold to people who provided her with it.

He’s my favorite thing. The most precious one. The only person who’s ever loved me unconditionally and totally.

I love how she accepted Low, even after seeing his life and how bad it could be. She took risks and sacrificed for him and his family. Their love was unconditional, that’s why I still love the ending.

“If I never met you, Poesy, there would be nothing for me to fight for.”

Poesy is a prequel novella chronicling the couple before they were crooks. It should be read after Low due to plot spoilers.
