More Five Star …

MORE FIVE STAR REVIEWS!

My Review:
Oh my God. Could this book get any better?! I absolutely fell in love with Angie and Jake from the beginning, and the words and passion kept me gripping my eReader until the last page. Wow! K.T. Wells has incredibly strong talent and I am happy to say that I am a forever fan.

Do any of you remember your first crush or high school sweetheart? Did you marry him or her? I remember mine, but sadly, never married him. But, that didn’t stop me from fall head over heels for Angie and her high school sweetheart! Actually, it goes back to middle school for them. Jake’s crush on Angie started in middle school and never let up. Little did he know, she felt the same but was playing that “hard to get” woman.

When Jake and Angie enter high school, she’s still not “interested in him…or so he thinks. But, his feelings for her are stronger than ever and knows that he’s completely in love with her. Problem is, she’s in love with him too, and finally gives in to his question of dating him. It’s floating-air-happiness for them both…..until the deceit enters the picture. A lie that one of them tells leaves them both heart broken and going separate ways.

Then, through the love of family and friends, Angie and Jake are reunited years later after bouts of unsuccessful relationships for them both, and it’s love at first sight all over again. But, will the lies stay away this time? Can Angie and Jake risk their hearts to each other once again?

What? You think I’m going to spoil the story for you? Nah. I’m going to say that this is a fantastic story of forgiveness, true love, second chances and incredible characters. It’s intensely complex and leaves you breathless by the end. I definitely recommend this roller coaster read with highest of 5 Book ratings and can’t wait for another captivating read from this extremely talented author!

Incredible FIVE STAR Reviews

Cocktails button by Parajunkee

Every once in a while I discover a book that speaks to me.  It has a wonderfully written heart-wrenching storyline, engaging dialogue, a hero and heroine who have the odds stacked against them and a supporting cast that feels like your best friends.  This was one of those books (and for the record, there have only been 2 in the past 5 years…this being one of them).

Jake has a middle school crush on Angie and couldn’t think of a way to get her to notice him.  When she does notice him, in high school, it’s only as a friend.  But then by the beginning of their senior year of high school, the best thing happens to Jake and he’s dating Angie.  He loves her with all his heart, but he’s also scared about the feelings and what that means.

Angie may have played hard to get with Jake, but she was absolutely in love with him and knew that he was her life.  She was planning her future and never for a minute doubted what she thought were plans that both she and Jake wanted.  When she finds out that Jake lies to her and changes their plans without talking to her, she’s devastated.

This teenage heartbreak molds both Angie and Jake as they move into adulthood.  Neither of them are able to hold meaningful relationships with anyone, tainted by what happened between them as teenagers.  Angie, who is still best friends with her high school best friend, won’t even travel to her old hometown because of the reminders.

It takes the skillful deception of their friends and one goddaughter to bring Jake and Angie face to face.  While things don’t go as planned, reading what unravels between the two of them is riveting…to the point you have to wonder what else they’re going to have to deal with.

Wonderfully written, with engaging characters and an emotionally charged storyline.

The summary peaked my interest, but it was the wonderful storytelling that won me over. This was more than boy meet girl, boy fallings in love with girl, and then he breaks her heart!!  Oh, no this is much more than that. This is a heart wrenching story of two souls meant to be together, but thru their own faults they are kept apart. It isn’t until a childhood friend, says enough is enough and with the help of family and friends they devise a plan on bringing these two back together. It wasn’t as easy as it sounds and then just when you thought they were going to finally have a Happy Ever After, tragedy struck.  Nope, I am not telling you a thing, you must read this to find out if true love does prevail.. 

There was a wonderful cast of characters in this book. I will tell you that I loved that the author provided a peak into the future with her awesome epilogue.  I also love that she was able to soothe Avery’s heart and I hope that he finally opens himself up to discover love.. maybe a sequel..

This was a great read and I recommend this to anyone who loved and lost and still believes in the one perfect soul mate. This was surprisingly a book I couldn’t put down and in some ways I am sad it ended. This close knit group of friends seem like just the people I would love to call ‘my friends’.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Radio Interview at A Book and A Chat

A Book and a Chat with K.T. Wells

 
When I checked up about my guest on today’s show “K.T. Wells” (secretly hoping to find what the K.T stood for) one thing I did find was that apart for being the writer of a great debut romance novel “Nobody’s Angel” she also had a thing about four inch heels, frosted brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts and original Cap’n Crunch. All of which I managed to include in what turned out to be another interesting and entertaining “A Book and a Chat”.

K.T.as we learned on the program has been telling stories since before she could read. Narrating stories to her baby brother the plotline of which were gleaned from the books pictures. Not much has changed with this story creation, indeed one of her husband’s favorite pastimes is to listen to her tales after asking her to tell the story of people they observe in restaurants, airports or the subway.

Nobody’s Angel is her first published book, but actually the fourth novel she has written, if you are into romance, with the full gambit of emotions then Nobody’s Angel is the book for you.

 
About “Nobody’s Angel”: (Taken from blackvelvetseduction)

Jake and Angie’s twentieth high school reunion sets the perfect stage for their lifelong friends to reunite the former sweethearts. Major roadblock – they have to trick Angie into coming home after twenty years. An elaborate ruse ensues at the same time they work on browbeating Jake into attending. 

Maneuvering through emotional minefields rates a 10 for difficulty level, particularly when Angie lives the maxim: Time does not heal all wounds. And Jake? Check the Wiki pic next to Pride comes before the fall. Yep, that’s him tripping all over himself year after year.

But the firm conviction that these two were meant to be together propels a cast of quirky, determined friends into action. When tragedy derails the best laid plans, will Jake and Angie’s love rise to the occasion?

As one reviewer put it…

In Nobody’s Angel we meet a story about a love lost and then recovered.

We meet a young woman who’s been going from relationship to relationship without committing to anyone because she fails to feel the spark ignited years ago by her high school crush and love.

Then a chance meeting at a familiar place gives her the second chance she’s been wanting, so as to put things right with her heart, body and soul once and for all.

I love the author’s prose, the fact that is was very well edited and put together and that the story flowed seamlessly without interruption.

A beautifully crafted novel that is certainly worth 5 stars well done K.T Wells looking forward to reading more work from you, stay blessed and keep on writing.

Well as we learned from K.T. during the show hopefully there will soon be more for that reviewer and all of us to read and enjoy.

So listen now and share an interesting,and entertaining thirty minutes with my guest K.T. Wells.
