  • An addictive new adult romance

    Meet Beth and Jacob. He’s two years older than her and neighbors. She’s a freshman in high school and he’s a junior. She immediately develops a crush on him and he sees her as a best friend and a little sister. Flash forward to Beth’s high school graduation. Jacob’s moved to London and she’s in L.A. She misses him and concocts a way for her to visit him in London. She convinces Jacob’s mum to let her tag along and even pays for part of the ticket. Once in London, everything changes. Hot kisses confuse their relationship and Beth’s insecurities cause rifts between them. Will she give into her feelings and fall in love or will she run as far away as possible to avoid a broken heart? I loved the relationship between Beth and Jacob. Jacob is on his way to living his dream of a rock musician but he’s a real stand-up guy. The author does a brilliant job of alternating the point of view so the reader connects with both Beth and Jacob. We feel what Jacob feels, in total guy-speak too. Impressive for a female author. This story is a quick read and is filled with plenty of sexual tension. While I don’t mind hot new adult romance, the second half of the book is nothing but hot kisses and Beth’s insecurities. Speaking of Beth’s insecurities, I found myself rolling my eyes quite a bit towards the end of this book. She’s known Jacob for years and they are best friends. She should have faith in him and know he’s going to be there for her. I recognize she was a shy gal in high school but she’s an adult now and should bask in Jacob’s affection for her. All in all, this was an excellent first book in a series and I can’t wait to read more from Carla Krae! If you like rock fiction, new adult and/or contemporary romance, pick up this book right now! Trust me, Jacob will make you swoon. Favorite Character: Beth. I can totally relate to her angst about having a crush on an older guy who just wants to be friends. She’s nerdy but in a good way. I loved how she grew into her own without losing herself in Jacob. She’s feisty and keeps him on his toes. Favorite Quote: He reached for her hand. “This scares me, too, you know. We go down in flames, I lose you for good.” (Jacob) My Rating: 4 stars

  • Good Story And Characterizations

    A very detailed description of the main male and main female characters from high school entry through to university entry. Through some of this, I became bogged down with too much detail at this point. However, with more novels to read in the series about this couple, mayhap some of the minute detailing is required groundwork for the balance of the story. Time will tell. Good story and characterizations thus far. On to book two in this five-book series I voluntarily received an advance review copy of this novel and I am leaving an honest and unbiased review. I have no affiliation to this author.

  • ⚓⚓ONE TUMULTUOUS WHIRLWIND⚓⚓

    Busting bloomers boo! Carla delivers one helluva turbulent rollercoaster with this heart pounding, pulse racing, gut-wretching, nailbiting dynamo, dishing out some fervent facts, harsh lessons and ruthless drive, hooking you from the start and holding steady until the end, propelling this jewel to new heights. Jumping hurdles and swinging hoops, attentive to the trying struggles and challenging triumphs, exposing the dramatic twists and stunning turns unfolding, noting the impish quirks and defying bents, hurling this jewel into the eye of the tempest, blowing it into a frenzy with mind-blowing results, wrapping this puppy up sleek, shiny and tight. Escapades and mayhem descend in a flurry of misfortune and mishaps, sketchy lines and blurred barriers solidify as limitations are amplified and tested, secrets are shared, revelations are disclosed and vows are pledged, stirring up dust and watching it swirl, propelling this bad boy to life brilliantly. The attraction and chemistry ignites with such intoxicating intensity, exploding with boundless emotions and infinite affection, drawing our characters closer, uniting them to one another perfectly. The characters, dialogue, interactions and charged atmosphere along with relatable qualities and individual traits, blend and flow adding depth and diversity, transforming into outstanding personalities. The scenes are abundantly descriptive with colorful details that blend and flow, creating a majestic backdrop that's so rich and lively it feels as though you're part of the story instead of on the sidelines, feeling everything the characters feel. Fabulous job Carla, thanks for sharing this awesome little gem with us.
