Erin Noelle - Spark (Fire on the Mountain Book 1) - Book Review






 

Publisher: Erin Noelle, 2015.
Genre: New Adult.
Length: 252 pages.

Crew Elliot and his family have moved from Dallas to the mountains of Colorado in search of a clean lifestyle and treatment for Caleb, Crew's younger brother. Caleb suffers with epilepsy. They’ve exhausted all the traditional methods of treatment and are now going for the unconventional. Marijuana. They arrive at Fire On The Mountain, a resort run by a hippie family with too many beautiful daughters to count, who also happen to grow and sell marijuana for their dispensary. Crew is drawn immediately to one daughter in particular. Hudson Shavell. She's a joint-toking, modern day Rapunzel with a helper mentality. Hudson is prepared to do whatever she can to help Caleb and his family. She wouldn’t mind helping herself to his older brother, Crew. He’s a little bit dangerous and a lot tempting. Even with her lack of experience, something tells her she'll have to be careful not to give too much.



What a ride! I had to have some recovery time after reading this emotional story. I felt pulled apart before being put back together, in a slightly different order. If you or anyone you know is affected by epilepsy, you’ll probably feel the same.

The legalization of marijuana for medicinal use has been a hot topic here in Australia, recently. Erin Noelle illustrates the human realities of this issue. I wanted to join the fight for Caleb to have some normalcy and relief. Reading how Hudson and Crew’s families formed a solid unit of support for Caleb's cause, pulled at my heartstrings.

Hudson has the tendency to be a martyr. She’ll suffer to ease others’ pain and work herself ragged to help where she’s needed. She’s an inherently peaceful soul, but when her world is shaken up, she shows her strength.

Crew will sacrifice whatever he has to so he can help his family. He and Hudson have that in common, but Crew's sacrifices are all for his brother. His world revolves around Caleb's needs. When he meets Hudson he finds that he might actually want something for himself, but reconciling the two proves to be difficult.



This story is so different. It is a definite stand out, in my opinion. I'm really looking forward to the next in the series, Flame.
Brilliant book, Erin Noelle.

Colleen Hoover - Confess - Book Review











Colleen Hoover - Confess - Book Review
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Genre: Contemporary/ New Adult Romance
Length: 320 pages.


This is a standalone novel.

The opening scene is so tragic; Colleen Hoover had me crying by page three. This story had me guessing, questioning, pondering and angry. I’ve taken my time writing this review because I don’t want to give too much away.

Auburn Mason Reed moved back to Dallas five weeks ago. The last time she was in Dallas it was to say her final goodbyes to the love of her life. She has mixed feelings about being back. Things aren’t working out the way she planned.

When she finds herself in need of a second job to pay for a lawyer, she stumbles across a store simply called, Confess. The front windows are covered with confessions written on bits of paper. A sign in the window says ‘help wanted’.

It turns out that the store houses an art studio and a talented artist by the name of Owen Mason Gentry (OMG). He gets his inspiration from those bits of paper containing some mind-bending revelations.

What a brilliant concept. The artwork featured in the book is particularly spectacular, done by (real-life) artist Danny O’Connor.

Colleen Hoover has found two beautiful characters in Owen and Auburn. When they meet, Auburn doesn’t know that Owen has seen her before.

There is that instant connection, more than just attraction. A recognition of bone deep pain and a selflessness rarely matched by those who haven’t suffered or loved as deeply.

“My mother says there are people who you meet and get to know, and then there are people you meet and already know. I feel like Owen is the latter.”

Circumstances are not kind to this pair. There’s a bit of sneaking around and long heated looks. The yearning to be together and the pain of being held apart is palpable.

Colleen Hoover’s slow, artful reveal of Auburn and Owen’s own confessions result in heart breaking consequences.

I don’t want to say anymore, it’s best to just dive in and enjoy.

A book packed with intrigue and yearning that will have you incensed at the injustice of it all.
