New Review: The Rebel by Kelsey Clayton (Haven Grace Prep Book 3)

🔥🔥 HOT NEW REVIEW 🔥🔥

The Rebel by Kelsey Clayton is LIVE and FREE with Kindle Unlimited! A hot student-teacher romance with all the feels… Get ready to meet Tessa Callahan!

I don’t play by the rules.

Never have, never will.

The second our eyes met from across the club,

I could feel a shift in the air—an overwhelming pull drawing me in.

One mind-blowing night is all it was, or so I thought.

Repeating my senior year may not have been the plan,

But finding out my one-night stand is my new teacher—

That’s something I never saw coming.

His gaze bores into me with the same intensity.

That body, those hands, I remember every touch.

I should stay away, but I don’t want to.

This time, all bets are off.

I’ll let him think he’s in control,

Until I bring him to his knees.

Passion and fire,

Forbidden and wrong.

Like I said, I don’t play by the rules.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Just when I think Kelsey Clayton can’t surprise me, she ALWAYS does. The Rebel is my favorite book in the series so far. 

I knew Tessa would have a story to tell, but I had absolutely no idea how powerful it would be. In the earlier novels, I learned that she was pretty tough and independent. However, I didn’t realize how complex and complicated she was. 

She doesn’t believe that the rules are for her. She is the rebel.  When she sees a sexy stranger, Asher, across a club that she is too young to get into, she thinks nothing of going home with him. It is a night they will both remember, even if they believe they won’t see each other again. Oh boy, how wrong they are. 

Imagine their surprise when they realize he is her teacher, and she is his student. Before people freak out, she is 18. If this was any other person but Tessa, it wouldn’t work…but it does. Of course, she sees no problem. Asher, unlike Tessa, is a rule follower. He has done that all of his life, but all that goes out of the window with her. She is chaos…

“This girl is a storm–a tornado ready to wreak havoc on anything in her path–and I’m addicted to her chaos.” ~Asher~

She is a storm. She has the potential to destroy everything in her path, but it is what she has had to do to survive. She might have a beautiful home, but that is just an appearance. Deep down, this girl is like a wounded animal. She has a tendency to lash out at others. She doesn’t think she can let anyone get too close to her, not even Delaney and Lennon. They can only get so far! She does this to keep herself from breaking into pieces she may never be able to put back together again. She really wants a relationship with Asher. He has proven himself to her time and time again. Yet, she has such a hard time relinquishing any control and putting her heart and sanity on the line.

Asher is a knight in shining armor if there ever was one! He does try to do the honorable thing and stay away from her, but he can’t. He is there every single time to rescue Tessa from her poor choices. He has his own issues of trust, but he is willing to put everything on the line for her. Who wouldn’t fall in love with a guy like that?

Despite Ashser’s support, Tessa has to make the decision to help herself. Asher takes the pain away momentarily, but it doesn’t last. 

“He’s the antidote to my pain. When I’m with him, everything fades away, but when I’m not, I drown in misery.” 

She has the power to determine what path in life she wants to take, but it won’t be easy. Lucky for her, she has an unbelievable support system. 

I was glad I got to see characters from previous books drop in and make appearances. They do play a part in Tessa’s journey. The addition of Colby, Asher’s best friend, also adds to her story. I loved Colby, and I hope at some point we get his story. 

Clayton gave her readers a book that isn’t just a story, it has the power to give someone hope and the ability to change lives. We learn through Tessa that pain doesn’ have to define you. You can overcome pretty much anything if you try. As she so eloquently puts it, “You are bigger than the things that happen to you.” It was just an incredible story of love and resilience. Another winner for Kelsey Clayton!!!!

New Review: The Girl in the Love Song (Lost Boys #1) by Emma Scott

New

 

The Girl in the Love Song (Lost Boys #1)

by Emma Scott 

 

About the Book

At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys…

The Girl in the Love Song, book one in the Lost Boys, an interconnected coming-of-age series of standalones, from USA Today bestselling author Emma Scott, is live!

Miller Stratton is a survivor. After a harrowing childhood of poverty, he will do anything it takes to find security for himself and his mom. He’s putting all his hopes and dreams in the fragile frame of his guitar and the beauty he creates with its strings and his soulful voice. 

Until Violet. 

No one expects to meet the love of their life at age thirteen. But the spunky rich girl steals Miller’s heart and refuses to give it back. 

Violet McNamara’s life hasn’t been as simple as it looks. Her picture-perfect family is not so perfect after all. Her best friend Miller is her one constant and she is determined not to ruin their friendship with romantic complications. 

But the heart wants what it wants. As Miller’s star begins to rise to stratospheric heights, what will it take for Violet to realize that she’s the girl in all of his love songs?

The Girl in the Love Song features two original songs written by Emma herself.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Top Read of 2020

All-Time Favorite Read 

Oh my goodness, what a beautiful, emotional love story!!! This is one of the best coming of age novels I have had the pleasure to read. 

 

Miller and Violet were soulmates. That much was evident from the first time the two met on her thirteenth birthday when she saw him outside her window. Although it took them a while to realize they belonged together, it was a wonderful journey to take with them. 

 

“In that instance–the length of a heartbeat–a lifetime passed between us. An understanding that her and I were inevitable. Fated. The boy with diabetes and the girl who was going to be a doctor. The girl with the romantic heart and the boy who wrote love songs.”

 

Miller and Violet were worlds apart. He was the poor, homeless boy who had dreams to become famous to make a more secure future for himself and his mother. Violet was the rich girl who had dreams of becoming a doctor. Neither suspected the night they met would determine their destinies. A sweet friendship developed between them until they realized the feelings they had for one another ran so much deeper. This was the point of the book that the friction and push and pull between them began as well as complications and misunderstandings. However, they always made their way back to one another. 

 

One thing that made the book so special were the characters themselves. Emma Scott created such complex and unique characters in Miller and Violet. Miller was not the usual hero. Several things made him different. He had such a painful past, and it did color how he looked at relationships…but, he was such a good guy and so sensitive and loyal. Others at school saw him as the homeless boy with no future, but Violet always saw him as so much more.. He never let his diabetes determine who he was either. His loyalty and love to Violet made me love him even more. 

 

Violet was just as strong as Miller. Yes, she came from an entirely different background than him, but her family wasn’t perfect either. Her once loving parents spend so much time now yelling at one another. Miller is her solace and peace. Like Miller, she won’t let anything get in the way of her dreams of becoming a doctor. She is as loyal to Miller as he is to her. 

 

The romance was full of angst and push and pull. However, it didn’t overwhelm the story, and there had to be a degree of angst to make the book as good as it was. For me, that made their love even stronger. I liked that they both were able to give us their own perspectives. One of my favorite things was reading her diary entries…they were so sweet. 

 

I am so glad this is going to be a series. I loved the friendship between the lost boys….Miller, Ronan, and Holden. Each have their secrets, and I can’t wait to hear their stories. 

 

On one last note, Scott touched on so many subjects…bullying, domestic violence, poverty, homelessness, and juvenile diabetes, yet she connected them all so seamlessly. On top of that, the lyrics she created for Miller were incredible. When you read her author’s note in the end, you will know her heart and soul were put into this book making it such an emotional and beautiful read!!!!

How To Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy Blog Tour with Review

HOW TO QUIT YOUR CRUSH

by Amy Fellner Dominy
Publication Date: May 4, 2020
Genres: Entangled: Crush, Teen Romance, Young Adult, Contemporary, Enemies to Lovers, Opposites Attract, Romance

SYNOPSIS

Mai Senn knows Anthony Adams is no good for her – no matter how hard she might crush on him. She’s valedictorian; he’s a surf bum. She’s got plans, he’s got his art. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, they once joked. A chemical reaction that bubbled.

Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.

Good thing Anthony’s got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just how not good they are together. Whoever can come up with the worst date—something the other will seriously hate, proving how incompatible they truly are—wins.

Like taking a snake-phobe to the Reptile House at the zoo (his idea).

Or a cooking class where they don’t even get to eat the food (her idea).

It’s all about the competition, and it’s meant to help them finally crush their crushes. But it wasn’t supposed to be so hot. Or so fun. And when Mai’s future becomes at stake, will she be able to do the right thing and quit Anthony forever?




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Mai and Anthony’s story is an opposites attract romance. On the surface, these two make absolutely no sense, but for some reason they feel a pull toward one another in Amy Fellner Dominy’s teen/coming of age novel!!!

Mai knows Anthony is exactly what she doesn’t need! But, tell that to her traitorous heart!!!! If only she could listen to her mind. She is the valedictorian of her class, and she has plans to go away to college and take the world by storm with her intellect. Anthony doesn’t really have any plans…maybe travel and surf. He doesn’t need academics; he has his art. He certainly doesn’t need an uptight girl like Mai to bring undue stress to his easy-going life. 

Neither one of them can keep their mind off the other, so they brilliantly come up with the idea of terrible dates to get over whatever feelings they have for one another. Both of them are so sure it will work since they are such polar opposites. Instead, the dates aren’t so bad. In fact, they are pretty good. They begin to learn not only more about each other but about themselves. 

This is a really sweet read with some spicy, but not over the top, moments. It reminded me of what it’s like to fall in love for the first time, giving me butterflies in my stomach. Amy Fellner Dominy gave her readers a great coming of age novel that reminds you of what it was like when you were on the verge of becoming an adult and the world was yours for the taking!!!!

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

I couldn’t put this enemies to lovers book down! Harley and Jackson walked right into my heart and haven’t let it go since!!!!

Hated You Then is a brilliant blend of enemies to lovers romance, along with the coming of age story of Harley and Jackson. To say these two hated each other is putting it mildly. They were constantly finding ways to torture each other as children and driving their mothers to their wits’ end. As time passes, those feelings somehow shift to something more. They aren’t quite sure how to deal with it, even though their parents seemed to know the affection they had for each other. I guess the saying is true, “There is a fine line between love and hate.” 

Both Jackson and Harley are strong, independently-minded characters. That was evident from the very first pages of this book! I laughed so hard at the things they did to one another as children. Both were so precocious as well! 

As the years passed, the two somehow always had each other’s backs despite their confusing feelings for one another. I really loved how Robinson wrote this book. It started with a bang in the present, but then, she went back into the past to the beginnings of the relationship between the two. She didn’t rush it. She took her time, allowing her readers to fall in love with the story and the characters. This does end in a cliffhanger, but that’s okay because this story didn’t need to be rushed. It has all the feels…laughter, swoons, and sadness. I’m looking forward to reading the sequel.

Till It Stops Beating by Hannah R. Goodman Blog Tour with Review

Till It Stops Beating

Till It Stops Beating

by Hannah R. Goodman

 

Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Maddie Hickman’s senior year begins with the good (the reemergence of The One That Got Away), the bad (a cancer diagnosis, not hers, but it might as well be) and the WTF (an anxiety attack that renders her writhing on the floor like an upside down crab). 

Adding to her spiraling anxiety is Senior Project, in the form of I’ve Decided To Write A Book about The Other One That Got Away (And Crushed My Heart). Compounding it all is applying to college and keeping up with her friends. The ever mounting stress eventually rips her tight grip on all that she holds dear. 

Her break down leads to an unexpected road trip where she is forced to listen to her wildly beating heart. It is only in the back of a convertible with pop music blasting, that she discovers she must risk everything in order to really live.

 



Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Till It Stops Beating is an emotional and touching book about a young woman who is on the brink of adulthood and the anxiety she endures while making that journey.

Maddie is a senior with great friends, Peter and Susan. She also has a great family who is extremely supportive of her. Life should be great for Maddie, but the darkness of anxiety is slowly creeping up on her. She has had some bad things happen in her life. The boy who always held her heart, Justin, went away because of his drug addiction, and she lost another boy, Zak, in a horrible accident. Now, her grandmother is in the battle of her life with cancer. All these things brew into a perfect storm giving her the anxiety attack of all anxiety attacks. She will have to fight and claw her way back into living life again. It isn’t any easy journey, but Maddie has the strength to do it if she would just believe in herself.

This book had several themes going on: friendship, family, mental health issues, and love. The author did a great job of balancing all of that, never leaving anything out, and always tugging at my heart. One of my very favorite things was the relationship Maddie shared with her grandmother. No matter what the outcome of her grandmother’s battle with cancer, Maddie will always carry her in her heart, and she will be a guiding force in her life ALWAYS!

I thought the author also did a great job of highlighting anxiety and how very crushing and isolating it can be. It makes you feel like everyone else around you is living their lives, but you aren’t. You’re stuck with the paralyzing fear, and it takes a strong person to fight against something that feels like it will drown you at times. However, she gives her readers real hope in managing this disorder and the real possibility of living a happy and fulfilling life.
