American War - Omar El Akkad

Angsty teen + war trauma = even worse angsty teen

 

Sarat isn't exactly a likeable person, but like Katniss, it's understandable.

Review Gibson is a rock star with a reputation, it started before he and the band became famous and has followed him into adult hood. Chloe knew him slightly way back, enough to see how he earned said reputation. Though she feels she missed a chance back then she has no intention of becoming another notch to him. Life has been hard for her, a long term relationship has left her with little trust in men. A wrong number phone call hours after beginning a new life gradually sparks something inside her.

Gibson is a rock star with a reputation, it started before he and the band became famous and has followed him into adult hood. Chloe knew him slightly way back, enough to see how he earned said reputation. Though she feels she missed a chance back then she has no intention of becoming another notch to him. Life has been hard for her, a long term relationship has left her with little trust in men. A wrong number phone call hours after beginning a new life gradually sparks something inside her.
Lots of angst and misconceptions make for a bit of a roller coaster of highs and lows for this couple, it is intense and sometimes raw with emotion. Frustration for Gibson in trying to do right by Chloe but at the same time his need for her is overwhelming. For Chloe it is the fear of trusting again, the feeling of not being good enough and of just being someone Gibson wants only until he gets what he wants from all women then him dropping her like all the others.
This is a fast paced read with a good flow throughout, the emotions go through a full range right along with these two characters. Just the sort of read I love, I tend to get lost in the story and suck it all in, I get a lump in my throat when the characters are upset and I find myself clenching my fist when things are tense.
Only draw back is that this isn't a stand alone book it continues into book 2, a bit like KL Shandwick Ready For Flynn Series so you need to be prepared to commit to that before you read. Do I feel its worth doing that? YES I do without hesitation, I enjoyed the other series and this first one in this series doesn't disappoint in any way.

My first unsolicited book!

Those that know me, know that I've been going through some stuff in real life, but the book world has been pretty kind to me! I've won several giveaways recently, and today I got a package in the mail and it was a book I wasn't expecting!

 

A while ago, I won a giveaway for Cooking For Ghosts Book 1 in The Secret Spice Cafe trilogy. The author just sent me book 2 out of the blue! It is called Spells & Oregano. I'm loving the titles. I've never been a great cook, but a ghost story with cooking? It sounds really interesting to me.

 

There was no giveaway for book 2, so that would make this my first unsolicited book. That's what you'd call it, right? 

 

She even signed and personalized it, so she did not mail it to me by accident. Thank you very much Patricia V. Davies. I will get to reading and reviewing both books soon in 2018! 

 

I don't have a huge following on any of my social media, so I am honestly not sure why she sent it to me, but it was the kindest gesture. It meant so much to me. It helped brighten my day. I am very thankful!
