A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?

In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.

Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.

She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?

Right from the moment I heard about Triangles I couldn't wait to read it. It's a whole new thing for me. I haven't read any books about the Bermuda Triangle before so this was such a unique and original concept to me. Unfortunately I think my expectations for this one were just a bit too high because I felt like it fell a little short for me. I still liked the book but I didn't love it and I really wanted to.

Autumn and her sister are set to go on the cruise of their dreams. But as they start to go through Bermuda strange things start to happen. Each day that Autumn wakes up different things are happening. One day she wakes up and a super hot guy is saying happy anniversary, the next she wakes to find the puppy dog guy who has been following her around for months is her long-term boyfriend. What is real? And will she be able to figure out how to get back to her normal reality before she is stuck in this confused reality?

I have to say that I really enjoyed Kimberly's writing style. That and her unique subject matter for this book grabbed my attention and made me want to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. I really enjoyed this story surrounding the Bermuda Triangle. It was a really new and unique idea to me and I enjoyed reading about it. Triangles is a really fun and light-hearted love story and everyone who knows me knows how much I love my romance. These were all the ingredients for a book that I would love... unfortunately it was the characters that got me.

Autumn... oh Autumn... *shakes head* First of all... I HATED Autumn... no DESPISED her. I just couldn't like her. URGH she just bugged the life out of me... she was such a big bitch! She totally flipped my bitch switch and had me wanting to grab inside the book just to give her a slap! The thing with me is that I find it really difficult to enjoy a book if I don't like the main character and I really didn't like Autumn. The only thing that really kept me reading was the unique storyline. My problem with Autumn was that she had all these important things happening in her life and she was just horrible about them. Gradually as the story went on I did start to warm to her... a little. She really does go through a journey and ends up becoming a better person and I did end up liking her in the end but for the majority of the book I just hated her!

Joey and Marcus... our two beautiful hot guys. Well I love them both. We have one good guy who is just the sweetest guy you could ever even imagine and one super hot bad boy... well what girl could resist?
I love Joey so much more than Marcus (sorry Marcus). He is adorable and sweet and I just fell head over heels in love with him. And he is totally in love with Autumn and she is just a bitch to him. I felt so bad for Joey all the way through the book and just wanted to reach in the book tell him he was far too good for Autumn and give him a big hug!
Marcus... Marcus is yummy and droolworthy and I loved him too. I feel like there was a much nicer side to Marcus that we didn't really see much and I would love a book about Marcus because he was one of my favourite characters in the book. He was such a bad boy which I loved but I think there's a sweeter, lovelier side to him that I would love to see one day.

I feel like Triangles is a good book, I enjoyed it by the end and I really was rooting for Autumn by the end. Once we got to the Alternate Realities I literally couldn't put the book down. My character issues were put aside because I was just completely overtaken by the storyline and literally could not wait to see what was going to happen. Triangles was a great storyline that I really enjoyed reading but because of my character issues I just had to knock the rating down. I will definitely be reading more of Kimberly's work as I just love her storytelling.

Triangles is definitely worth a read. It's a good unique storyline that I enjoyed reading.
