About Carey Decevito

Born and raised in small town Northern Ontario, Canada, Carey Decevito has always had a penchant for reading and writing for as long as she can remember.

More than a decade later, with weeks of sleepless nights, where exhaustion had settled in to her everyday existence, she finally gave and put pen to paper (more like fingers to keyboard). She submitted to the dreams that plagued her insomnia. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Carey Decevito enjoys spending time with family and friends, the outdoors, travelling, and playing tourist in Canada’s National Capital region. When life gets crazy, she seeks respite through her writing and reading. If all else fails, she knows there’s never a dull moment with her prolific story-teller of a four-year-old daughter, her goofy husband and their two cats who she swears are out to get her.

Review by: Storm Chase on June 06, 2014 :
It was nice to see a hero who's a good man all the way through. Paxton is sweet, easy going, generous and kind. At the start of the story his wife Julie is walking out on him - and taking their kid, Jason. Paxton hooks up with an internet friend, Alissa, who's also a sweetie. The tension in the book comes in the form of a crisis - which I won't spoil for you.

I liked this a lot, but it's odd how Paxton is the sort of man I'd date but in book form he was a bit too nice for me. So was Alissa. She was so sweet as to be almost saintly. I like Julie best - because I like a bit of bitch in my characters.

Overall this is well written and there's tonnes of sex. if you want a nice story with good people for an afternoon's read, give this a go.

Review by: Jonel Boyko on Oct. 11, 2013 :
Holy hot tamales! What a trip!

I love how this novel is written in the male POV. It adds a definite twist to the story. At the same time, there is such a brilliant flow, and the story is so well put together that you can’t help but relate to the characters. Decevito is a very visually descriptive writer who draws you in to each and every aspect of the story with minimal effort on the reader’s part. Her story is explicit and vividly visual without ever becoming crass. She walks a fine line with this one and creates something that is brilliant.

The main characters in this story are amazingly developed. You get to know them intimately as they get to know each other. It’s quite interesting to see how they see each other and how they see themselves together. The supporting cast fits quite well in the story, and you get to know them in that capacity. I would have appreciated a bit more development as to who they were. It would have given the story’s interconnectedness a bit more of a kick in the right direction.

Overall, this is a very intimate story that draws you in and won’t let you go. Your emotions get completely wrapped up in the storyline, with some hot and bothered moments to break up the sadness. It’s a brilliant trip for anyone who wants something a little out of the norm.

Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author/publisher/blog tour company in exchange for an honest review.
