SC synopsis

The use of the phrase life is hard has become so diluted, so overstated through the years that when someone hears it the words go in one ear and out the other. The impact is no longer there. The meaning, the importance of that phrase no longer holds any water with those it’s spoken to.

Freya Linden’s life became hard at the age of seventeen, the summer before her senior year of high school. The bright colors of her life faded into black and white, a colorless shell full of loneliness.

Until she met him.

Parker Owens breathed life back into her world. With him she began to heal. But happiness isn’t a guarantee. Sometimes opening yourself up only leads to more heartbreak. The person she thought to be her saving grace shattered her completely.

Her story isn’t a pretty one. The bumps in the road were monumental and infinite. But it’s her story. And the one thing that holds true is this: despite the hardships, she made it through to the other side.

SC review

I was given an E-book of this in exchange for an honest review.

YA is making a come back in my world! Thank you, Jessica Prince, for such a beautiful story. i ten to stay away from YA, a lot of the books just do not do it for me (read: whiny characters and hard to believe plots). However, an author friend of mine that i greatly respect and admire asked me to review this one. It was being overlooked by many readers (that happens, there are TONS of books coming out all the time!). Well… I was blown away. AWAY! Jessica Prince not only has a well developed story-line, but her characters are f-ing amaze-balls!

I felt connected to Freya from the Prologue to “The end.” She was such a wonderful character, I was sad to see her go. In every situation Freya was strong, respectable, and real. She wanted to hide in a hole, but Ms. Prince would not allow that 🙂

Spritely Stella assumes the role of BFF without hesitation or (surprisingly) rebuff. Stella is a force and an easy favorite for supporting character.

Then there is Parker. ❤

Parker is tired of, well, everything. From his first glance of Freya, Parker  is toast. He cannot stay away. Even when pushed away out of self-preservation, he doesn’t back off.

“Look, I appreciate the ride, really, and I’m sorry if I acted like a bitch. Don’t take this personally, but I’m not looking to make any friens, okay? I didn’t even want to move to this stupid town. I just want to get through this year and get the hell out {of} here I’m not looking to make an connections along the way. I’m perfectly fine on my own.”

“You didn’t seem to have a problem getting to know that redhead in our English class.”

Busted Freya! We all need to feel connected. even when we don’t want to…

Parker does, finally get under Freya’s defenses and the two have quite the courtship. They eventually help each other through some difficult times and grow quite close (there are some bumps, but you knew it happens when you keep secrets),

And then… BOOM! Holy shit, guys. I was FLOORED. F-L-O-O-R-E-D! i was completely brokenhearted for both characters.

Now, no more about what happens, but I will say that I honesty found nothing I didn’t like about this book, and I think anyone would really enjoy the ride and if you are a YA fan in general, you will abso-freaking-lutely love this book.

My cup runneth over.

SC author bio

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
