A Cactus in the Valley - Olivia Bennett

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.


This was an amazing book. I haven’t read a YA book this deep and emotional in a while.


First off, I loved the dual points of view. It allowed me to really get into the minds of both Terra and Wyatt and feel what they felt.


I also really loved the flashbacks. They were incredibly well done and were spaced perfectly throughout the novel. You learned more about the characters gradually, as opposed to being info-dumped with backstory. The author did a good job paralleling the flashbacks. I enjoyed seeing the connections between their stories.


The writing style of the book was really beautiful. The descriptions were phenomenal. The author writes with such an ease. Two of my favorite lines (which also show the parallels) were “My name is Terra Lombardi, and I am a shooting star falling from the heavens” (24) and “My name is Wyatt Hartman, and I am a meteor crashing from the skies” (44).


The subject matter can be heavy and very mature at times, but it was all handled appropriately. Sometimes authors will throw in things like rape and abuse as a plot device, without doing the matter justice. This book did not do that and I really appreciated that.


Overall, this is a powerful story about survival and facing your inner demons.

Danger, hummmm.....
Damsel In Danger (Danger Incorporated Book 1) - Olivia Jaymes

This is my first read by this author. Kind of nothing.  A tiny bit of mystery and a little steam. The story was pale. Not much to engage the reader, although it was an easy read and would be a good vacation, on the beach read, with an alcoholic libation.

Rainbow Sock Knitting Pattern - Olivia Clark

This was one simple sock pattern. It was okay and I was glad that I was able to get the pattern book for free.

Geneva Rawley is broken. All of her hopes and dreams for a future ended the night the only man who ever loved her was killed in a tragic car accident. And it was completely her fault. The guilt of what happened is a burden that is slowly suffocating her, and finding relief in a bottle seems her only solution... until she meets Rhys.  


Rhys Connor knows addiction, and he knows brokenness. He’s been down that road, and he knows that it’s nothing short of a miracle that he found his way back from it. That’s why he’s spent the last several years helping to rescue others from that precipice. When an AA buddy asks him to talk to his struggling cousin, he feels more than up to the task. But the moment Rhys lays eyes on Geneva, he knows she's the one he's been waiting his whole life to find.   Can one broken soul save another from destroying herself, or will they both go down in flames?

About the Author:


   When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.  


Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.  


A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.   Get a free gift just for signing up for Olivia's Newsletter!
