    Loved it

    *4.5 stars* I struggled rating this one because I really loved this story so much. There were however a couple of things I would have liked to have seen done differently but in the end - I LOVED this story. It seemed to have a bit of everything I enjoy. A second chance / friends to lovers story with a hot rock star - what's not to like with that? Throw in a bit of angst and a little suspense and I'm hooked. I thought the author did a great job telling Nolan and Hailey's story from both past and present perspectives. I sometimes have trouble keeping up when the story has flashbacks but this one flowed very well. The thing that bothered me just a bit was how easily Hailey forgave Nolan. If someone disappears from my life for 5 years there will be major groveling going on when they try to reenter it. In the end though he does fight hard to regain her trust so he wins with me. This is definitely one I recommend!

    pleasantly surprised

    I didn’t realize this was a New Adult book when I picked up this book and that’s not usually my kind of read - there’s nothing wrong with them per se but it isn’t my first choice. But I was intrigued enough to read it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. There were a few things I didn’t like – I found the two main characters to be a little … free with who (and how many) they had sex with. Again, nothing wrong with it necessarily as long as everyone is on the same page, but it isn’t my cup of tea. But once they meet up again I liked the connection between the two and how they struggled to figure out where they needed to go from there. It was a tough choice for them and I think that it was handled very well. I also thought that the mystery over Hailey’s attack was done right and made a lot of sense in context. I’ve got another Lindenblatt book on my TBR shelf and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing if she brings as good a read the second time around :) (complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

    Made the Grade: Pushing Limits Series, Book 1

    3 out of 5 stars! Five years ago, Nolan (Tyler) ran away from his hometown for L.A. to escape his past and try to make it as a rock star. Since moving he has been on the fast track for success with his band Pushing Limits, but the one person he could never escape from was Hailey who was his childhood best friend. Therefore, when he learns that Hailey was attacked and in the hospital he drops everything to be there for her. Yet being back home opens up more old feelings then he had planned .... being there again will definitely change his life though if it'll change for the better is still up for debate. This romance was written more as a suspenseful thriller than anything else and while it was well-written, it’s because of the thriller-edge that this plot takes that it didn't keep my interest as much as I'd have liked. Nevertheless, I liked all of the characters. I liked the idea of Nolan and Hailey together. And I enjoyed the build-up for this series, which makes me curious as to how the other novels will turn out. I really wish I could've enjoyed this novel more. As it was, both Hailey and Nolan's lives had been defined by a deadly moment from their pasts. It was horrible and very sad. And while they could've used it to help one another out, Nolan pushed Hailey away and is lucky she didn't say something along the lines of it being 'five years to late' once he returned. You can tell that they have always cared for one another. But their journey was not one that swept me away, even while I was rooting for their relationship. With all that said, I DO recommend this novel to those looking for a suspenseful contemporary new adult romance. Review By: From Me to You ...

    Sweet Moments

    MINOR SPOILERS!!!!!!!! I enjoyed the majority of the book, and I only knocked a star off because I'm not a huge fan of the whole rock star scenario, and I normally pass on those books, but after reading the synopsis, I decided to give this one a shot. I was hoping the rock star thing wouldn't be a big part of the story because I can't stand the whole groupie thing, and although there is some of that in this book, it wasn't too bad. I didn't like the whole publicity stunt the record company was pulling, and I also didn't like that Nolan and Hailey weren't very particular about all the people they slept with when they were apart; I'm not into characters that sleep around, it's just not something I want to read about. So, despite those couple of things, I really liked the rest of the book. Nolan is a rock star, who had a family tragedy a few years back, so he left his hometown and left his best friend, Hailey; who he is in love with, behind without telling her how he feels, and he completely ignores any attempt by her to get in touch with him because he can't handle what happened with his family; he even has trouble remembering the event. Nolan receives a call that Hailey has been attack, so he returns to his hometown to be there for her. Hailey has amnesia from the attack and the police are stilling trying to find out who attacked her, so Nolan stays in town to help Hailey out. I liked the mystery of figuring out who attacked Hailey, and I do think the romance was sweet; although, I wanted Hailey to give Nolan a bit more of a hard time about leaving like he did. I like how protective Nolan was, and how he was there when Hailey needed him, but I wasn't totally happy that Nolan let the record company make some decisions for him, but I suppose that's the business; lame. I also enjoyed the storyline of Nolan having to deal with what happened with his family. I think I will check out other book by Stina Lindenblatt because although I didn't love somethings about this book, I enjoyed the writing, and I was entertained the through the whole book.
