I told you all yesterday that I was soooooooooo excited about getting this review copy... well I already finished reading it!
I know right! I was up until 2 AM last night and literally killed both my Kindle Fire and my iPad before I finally went to bed, begrudgingly I might add... ;)
Horrible little habit I have, but soooooooooooooooooo **breath** ooooooooooooooooo worth it!
Here we go:
Book Blurb from GR:
For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she’s decided? No way is Noah Jackson — or any man — ever going to break her heart again.
Noah has always known exactly what he wants out of life. Success. Stability. Control. That’s why he joined the Marines and that’s why he’s fighting his way — literally — through college. Now that he’s got the rest of his life on track, he has one last conquest: Grace Sullivan. But since he was the one who stopped writing, he knows that winning her back will be his biggest battle yet.
Expected publication: May 1st 2013 by Jen Frederick
Review copy requested from and given to me by the author, Jen Frederick, in exchange for an honest review.
Series Name: Woodlands
Book #1: Undeclared
Book #2: Unspoken
Let me start off by saying I am so excited that this is not a stand alone! I can't wait for the next installment! I loved the world that Jen Frederick was able to create and the characters in it. She seems to have an effortless way of crafting her characters that I really really loved. The flow of her writing was really nice, I didn't reread or get bored - which is kind of obvious since I was up so late reading it.
moving on to the good stuff... this book has some HOT scenes in it! This is a debut for this author so I wasn't sure what to expect exactly on the steam factor, but WOW - it was niiiiiiiiiiiiice.
I don't want to say much more because I don't want to spoil anything for you - because I know you all will love this book when you pick it up next week on Wednesday, 5/1!These characters like I said earlier were really great - I actually cared about them... Noah more so than Grace but by the end of the book I was loving Grace as well. It took the journey she went on for me to feel fully invested in her, but that's the point of reading a good book, right?! I absolutely love Noah - he is so complicated and so emotional and yet not... confusing right, well read the book - you'll know what I mean.
I will leave you with possibly my favorite quote from the book... enjoy:
"I know that your greatest fear is that you aren't good enough. But you are. You are the best kind of person, Noah. ... You are even better than Odysseus because he was an imaginary character dreamt up by some writer. You are real. And amazing."
It's available now!!
GO GET IT!!
please check out this awesome new author and her amazing debut!
until next time, Jen
