Smashwords book reviews by havanaday

  • A Moment on May 29, 2013

    I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review. This book tackles all sorts of taboo topics. Yet, I didn't feel like the author was just trying to throw in everything just to get people talking. There is teenage pregnancy, mental illness, and a few other things that actually make sense in the story. Let's see, Liliana is not a broken down girl looking for a rescuer. She is the one who is going to rescue Ryan and still be there for her family. I like the female character being the stronger one. Not that typical in a NA book it seems. Ryan is a broken man but not broken enough that you want to give up on him. I found myself really wanting things to work out for this relationship. Ryan and Liliana completed each other. I know it sounds cheesey, but it works in this book. I liked both characters and I was not frustrated with their juevenile actions. Because they had to grow up way too quick. I also really liked the character of Alex. I see that this is a series possibly, so I can only hope that the second book is his story. You cannot ask for a more loyal friend than him.
  • Hope Breaks: New Adult Romantic Comedy (Book 1 of 3) on July 02, 2013

    Cute, short novella. The author does describe this as New Adult, but since Hope is 26, I think it is more of a Contemporary story. She is too old to be New Adult. I love the fact that Hope is finding all these hot guys at Walmart. Gives the People of Walmart a new meaning. How come I don’t see these at my Walmart? It has a lot of funny things happen in the story but the ending turns more serious. I didn’t see that happening and I hope I see things turn out for good in the rest of the series.
