Review 

*ARC received from author for Honest Review*

Charlotte has had the year from hell. Her mother was horribly sick and she was left to care for her while her father and sister checked out. Giving up her senior year in high school was a no-brainer and Charlotte has dedicated her every waking moment to making sure her mother’s last moments were the best they could be. Once she passes, Charlotte and her father/sister travel to the island where memories of her mother and her mother’s childhood are all around.  

I really really loved this story. Charlotte is such a strong character giving up her life at 17 to care for her mother while everyone else went on with their lives ignoring the fact. Her father has basically given up, simply waking up in the morning and sleeping at night. Her sister has taken being a bitch to the furthest extreme and though she harbors guilt and pain over her mother’s loss, it is extremely difficult to feel anything for her except extreme hatred. 
The island offers up a retreat from the clouds of death that hang over their house back home. Charlotte needed so badly to escape from her self-imposed cell and return to a place that held great and wonderful memories from her mother’s childhood that she can now connect with. Parties, drinking and boys are not something high on Charlotte’s list of priorities. Even when other kids her age invite her to late night beach parties, Charlotte is hesitant to attend after being sheltered so long. Instead she prefers to sit on the sidelines and reminisce over the time she was once popular before her mother was ill. She doesn’t miss it at all and watching her sister succumb to the conceit and superiority that comes with popularity does nothing but reaffirm Charlotte’s decision to give it up. 
Charlotte strikes up a friendship of her own with her neighbor, Ezra, who is also the islands Mr. Fix It. The two bond over their need for privacy and seclusion finding they share more in common than they imagined. Ezra encourages Charlotte to start living again and slowly she does, still never regretting being able to spend as much time with her mother as she did. The two are so cute together, calling each other their sidekick and just understanding each other without even speaking. 
Overall Waiting for the Storm was a great read. Charlotte was a strong, emotional character that was easy to connect to. Sometimes I wish she had a bit more anger in her, specifically directed at her sister, but she never ceases to amaze me after all she’s been through. Even after being the only one to care for her mother, rather than give in to her pain and grief, she continues trying to help others, particularly her father and sister. I loved watching the love between her and Ezra grow. There is no insta-love here and it makes their journey that much stronger. The two bond over shared pain and offer light in spite of each other’s darkness. I would definitely recommend Waiting for the Storm, it is definitely classified as a YA novel and it will not disappoint.

Notice Me Review

Book Review - July 28, 2013
Title: Notice Me
by: Rebecca Turley
4 Stars ★★★★

*ARC provided by Author for Honest Review*
Had you asked me what my thoughts were on this book at different points while reading, my answers would be all over the place. One minute your excited and giddy like a fat kid with cake and at another moment you may feel gut punched and unsure of what you think is the truth. Honestly now that I have finished Notice Me, my thoughts are a million times less jumbled and I am so happy to have stumbled upon Notice Me, this is truly an undiscovered gem.  This book is definitely emotion educing, as you will feel them all at certain points throughout.

description
Romance plays a huge role in the story. In fact so much so that the main character Shannon begins to receive love notes from some anonymous source always signed Notice Me. Shannon has no clue why a nobody like her would ever receive that kind of attention, especially when she is best friends with Megan Field, eldest daughter of the renowned and absurdly rich Field family who is model beautiful and hounded by the press constantly. The entire Fields family are a bit obsessed with money and surely have a hard time accepting those from outside their circle. Shannon prefers to hide in the shadows and observe her friend while she eats up all the attention but somehow she feels connected to her and her family in a way she never has with anyone else.

“I was Megan Field’s best friend. Men only showed an interest in me because of Megan. It felt strange that someone even wanted to notice me. I was nothing special.” – Shannon

I really loved Shannon. She was a great character and following along in her POV was never dull and pulled me in. Enough so that the extremely small font size from the PDF on my kindle with was so ridiculously small that I practically had to hold my kindle up to my face and the small pain in my arms and shoulders was barely noticeable. I do wish we got more background on Shannon’s background throughout the story, most times she alludes to having a bad childhood and being shifted from foster to foster home after her parents death. But this too is something that becomes more understandable with the end of the story. (And a word of advice, be sure to have book #2 Embrace Me readily available because though it ends on a happy note, the late 2AM hour did not stop me from immediately switching over and getting a few chapters in.)
description
To say Shannon has anxiety is like saying birds fly. But even with her harrowing panic attacks she perseveres. She relies heavily on her friend Megan but does not realize how strong she is in her own right. One thing that threw me was Shannon’s quick reaction in relationships and intimacy. She may have anxiety issues and feel unsure of herself because of her past and allowing people to see the real her but the physical relationships Shannon develops take no time at all. And I’m not judging trust me. Instead this brings up one issue that I was confounded by and that was the lack of sex. Sure there are tons of lead-ins and few insinuations but sadly there are no raunchy, dirty or even sweaty sex scenes to steam your glasses. In many ways this makes Notice Me more generic romance but for me (someone who loves the dirty, nasty, hide the book from co-worker sex scenes) Notice Me was a wonderful read without them.
 description
I refuse to give anything away because there is what I consider to be a twist in the story. Shannon remains unsure of the letter writers’ identity and the mystery continues to grow as she develops feelings for Megan’s brother Will, who may or may not be the letter’s writer.

There are quite a few characters throughout the story and each one is interesting in their own right. But just like the letter writer’s identity, everyone is not who they appear to be and the Shannon learns the hard way that friends sometimes need to come and go. Now let me be clear, there is more than one twist, at least in my eyes. The majorities begin taking form about half way in the story and they will throw you for a loop. Like Sharon you will realize that everyone has secrets and sometimes the people you thought you could trust the most are actually the ones doing all they can to ruin your life. I am honestly thankful for a somewhat predictable plot that still managed to befuddle me and leave me guessing when I thought I had all the answers.
description
As for complaints about Notice Me, I don’t have many. One thing that stuck out for me was how little the characters actually sounded like they were from London. They seemed to talk more like Londonites once they were in New York and even then it was only apparent by them referring their moms as Mum and the subway as the tube. There are few spelling and grammar mistakes but not nearly enough to distract from the story.

“It goes beyond love… what I feel for you.” – Mr. Notice Me AKA Mr. Anonymous

As for the mystery writer’s identity, I can’t say how I felt throughout. At the very end I was extremely happy but while reading every time I thought, ‘it could be him,’ it was mixed with a ‘please don’t be him,’ but again, once the truth and all the secrets were uncovered my opinions changed. Even when the truth was revealed I was not okay with the outcome. It took me some time. I was hoping the writer would not be who I thought because of the circumstances, yet the end is like a huge reveal and let’s say things become a bit more easily acceptable at that point. But the big question is, will Shannon’s feelings change when she knows the truth? She feels connected to this mystery man and has more feelings towards him than the actual people in her life.  I won’t say more, so go read it, you won’t be disappointed.  Also if it helps there is no cliff-hanger and even without book #2 Embrace Me, the book ends on a happy note. description

Overall
Notice Me seems even more romantic in my eyes after writing this review. I can’t help but feel for Shannon and the hell her life becomes. Everything is questionable and even when she thinks she is doing the right thing, circumstances are just out and beyond her control. She was an amazing female lead and I was never bored with her or even too flustered by her personal choices. The drama is high and often unexpected making Notice Me really stand out and deserve a lot more attention and recognition. Again it does fit the New Adult category but it is devoid of all the usual sex scenes. That being said, I did not feel jipped (use your imagination) and highly recommend Notice Me as a great contemporary NA romance that will leave you with a smile on your face.

Escaping Me Release Day Event with Review & Giveaway

Title: Escaping Me
Author: Elizabeth Lee
Release Day: July 30, 2013


Synopsis: All she wanted to do was forget. Forget the memory of walking in on her boyfriend in the middle of, well, another girl. Forget how she had her entire life planned out. And, forget about being perfect all the time. Unfortunately, she was Whitney Vandaveer and despite the fact that she moved to the middle of nowhere—she couldn't.

He always knew he would never be more than nothing. No job, no money, no future. Cole Pritchett had accepted the fact that he would always be the screw up and he was okay with it. Until he met her.

Here's the thing they quickly found out—sometimes we all need a little help escaping who we think we are.

Elizabeth Lee Bio:

When I'm not writing or playing the part of wife and mother, you can find me dancing back-up for Beyonce, singing back-up for Miranda, or sunning myself on the beach with a drink in hand.  Here's the thing about being born and raised in a small town—you have a very vivid imagination!  Now, I channel it all to create stories where the girl always ends up with the right guy, first kisses are magical, and a happy ending is just that!
My Review
July 24
4 Stars 
* ARC provided by Author for honest Review *
If only I could open this review as good as Elizabeth Lee started this story. Let’s just say when the lead girl, Whitney, literally passes out in bad-boy gone good, Cole’s, arms before even they even meet, you know you got a great story on the way. And Escaping Me was a really great story.

Whitney has lived with her father in the city all her life. She’s a city girl through and through, used to money and the fancier things in life. When she catches her boyfriend getting it on with another girl, she runs to the country with her mother and sister to get over him. Cole is the complete opposite of Whitney, having grown up poor and without all life’s comforts. After his brother becomes engaged to Cole’s ex and Cole’s anger problems hit the wall, he gets kicked out and sent to another small town, where he’s supposed to live while he works out his problems. He surely doesn't expect to play knight in shining armor to some rich city girl.
When Cole and Whitney do finally come face to face sparks fly and the two want each other. Both however, are hesitant to start anything because of the reasons they are in town in the first place. Whitney has a great friend in her sister, someone she barely knew when she lived in the city. Even her mom is a down to earth godsend who offers her support rather than criticism and commands like her father in the city. They encourage Whitney and Cole and even with him thinking he’s not good enough, how can they deny heat that hot?
Whitney is just what Cole needs and vice-versa. The two complete each other in all the cheesy, corny and cliché ways you can think of. She motivates him to be better and do better where he allows her to spread her wings and become the person she is meant to be.  I liked the fact that it wasn't really an insta-love. I mean sure they are both attracted to each other but they don’t just jump into bed together or a relationship.

I really enjoyed the dual POV’s, it really gave great insight into each characters personality. And I’ll admit it has its great steamy moments that may fog up your kindle. Cole certainly gets an A in sexting.
   
He looked like the kind of guy that said exactly what he was thinking, and judging by the way his hooded eyes were taking me in, I lustfully wished he’d tell me all he ways he’d make me scream his name.”- Whitney

Whitney is not the, let’s say, smartest person in the beginning and I don’t mean in a book smart way but more of  a ‘I don’t know how to take control of my own life kind of way. But being in the middle of nowhere, where things like money, facials and ritzy cars don’t matter, really helps Whitney come into herself. Cole and her family (her mom and sister) are driving forces as well and provide a well needed closeness she never really found with her father.

My only complaint is the epilogue. It could have been better. But the story makes up for it. Overall it was a great read and though not action packed, I was still sucked in and enjoyed the ride. Cole and Whitney were both great characters and developed into better people as the story went on.

Excerpt #1—Everything I’ve Never Had by Lynetta Halat—Sept. 2013 (Unedited and subject to change.)
Adrian runs his hands up my arms and shoulders until they grasp both sides of my neck to tilt my head back so that I'm staring straight into his arctic blue eyes. I immediately start trembling, and it's not with fear. "Celeste, I'm begging you not to leave here looking like that. You look gorgeous, babe, but I can't sit here all night wondering who's hitting on you, who's imagining moving that scrap of fabric over to get a glimpse at what is..."
"What is what?" I breathe heavily.
"What is underneath it all." His brow wrinkles, and I feel his hands tighten their pleasurably painful grip. "What is underneath it all?"
"Just me, Adrian, just me," I breathe. "That's all."
"So everything then. Just like I thought." He removes one of his hands to run it up the back of my thigh. My eyes widen and I swallow hard.
"That's not a good idea," I whisper. His hand wraps all the way around my thigh, his fingertips coming to rest along the crease of my left cheek. My thigh pulses with fire.
"Why not?" His fingertips tease back and forth a little. Even though it’s a light touch, it feels like his calloused fingertips mark me.
"Why not? Look at us. We can't even have a civil conversation for everything that has passed between us, and you want to further complicate it. What you're doing will further complicate matters."
His hand stills. He exhales loudly and lets his head drop on my chest. "You do this to me. I don't act like this. That day in the park, watching you cross and uncross your legs. Throwing your hair over your shoulder. Laughing without a care in the world. Cheering me on like it was your favorite thing to do! It killed me. Killed me. I've never wanted a woman the way I want you. Never."
His words rain down on me like fiery drops of lust. I close my eyes and rewrite that memory. I thought he was just being an ass, but his unexpected anger was because he was yearning for me. I bite my lip, open my eyes, and shake my head. "It's just because you can't have me, Adrian. I'm nothing special."
"Oh, baby, you have no idea." He runs his nose up my throat, scenting me as he goes. I lean my neck back, giving him more access even as my brain screams at me to run—not walk—out of this room. But when he says, "You're everything to me." My head falls back even further and my eyes close again as I feel him slant his head and attack my chin, throat, and neck with closed-mouth kisses. I hear myself moan and give myself one more little jolt to try to spare myself from this delicious torment that will only end in frustration.

Exclusive Excerpt
Quick!" Mitzi says, he voice filled with excitement.
I turn back from the rail of clothing I had been perusing to see Mitzi looking through the front of the store window. "What’s up, who you looking at?" I ask.
"Oh my god Honey, can you not see the hottie over there!" She points, to a guy who is just leaving the coffee shop over the road. “He is gorrrrgeous!” she purrs.
I roll my eyes, this has to be at least the tenth 'hottie' she has seen on today’s shopping trip. As the latest 'hottie' gets into his car and drives away she returns her attention back to me, and gasps in horror, "Please don’t tell me you are even thinking about that dress in your hand Miss Honey Glaze!"
I stare down at the purple floral shift dress I had picked up."I thought it was kinda cute?" I say, now uncertain.
She shakes her head, before taking the dress out of my hand and quickly returning it to the rail."Honey, you are a Pearly Girl now. Who wants cute, always aim for sizzling hot!" she says, emphasizing the word hot. There is a glimmer of mischief in her eyes that makes me a little nervous. "Vintage doesn’t mean that you need to dress like your gran, far from it. Now let me show you how to shop vintage style!" She grabs my hand and drags me towards a corner section of the store, where a selection of delicate looking dresses are displayed. "Designer Vintage!" she beams, rubbing her palms together. "Oh girl, when I am done with you today we are off out to paint this town Burlesque red!"
We return back to Mitzi’s apartment some four hours later, weighed down by a mass of bags. If shopping were a sport, Mitzi would get a gold medal.
“Right Hon, now we got the clothes sorted, I am going to teach you all the tricks of the trade!” She nods her head towards her dressing table and the huge selection of makeup set out neatly on top. Oh boy, this could be a long night.
