A To Z Challenge 2016: B


For my B book I chose 'Becoming Us' by Amy Daws, I had originally gone with a different book but when I kept having to read the same page over and over because it wasn't registering I switched.


The dreaded friend-zone... 

The last place I ever want to be with college basketball God, Jake LaShae. 

I am losing my mind trying to figure out what this gorgeous and confident man wants from me. I need to break through his walls. What is it about me that makes him not go there? What am I lacking? 

When a mind-blowing betrayal knocks the wind out of me, and I think I can't feel any lower...Brody stumbles into my path—barefoot no less, and sexy as hell. His direct and mouth-watering swagger is a breath of fresh air. The feelings this man gives me are like nothing I've ever experienced. 

But Brody has a past. 

A past that makes it nearly impossible for him to trust me and let us become us in whatever capacity that may be. 

Just when Brody and I truly connect, just when I think that finding my soul-mate in college isn't a total joke, Jake comes back into my life…and messes things up…possibly for good.

I wish that I could say that this was super interesting, but it wasn't, it was a fluffy college romance piece that wasn't really overly redeeming.  The end, however, disturbed me.  It was very jarring for the over all context of the book which of course means that you have to read the next book to find out what's going on.  Great tactic.

  3. Ah, so that's what you do when you write a series! Think I agree with your opinion, so I'll not be adding it to my TBR list. Always as grateful to be saved from one, as to have a recommendation to add. See you again!

  4. Sounds like a tactic to copy, perhaps with a better book leading up to it! ~Liz http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com

  5. Ahhh the friend zone. Never a good place to be. This one sounds like it could have been good but lost its way somehow...

  7. Well said, I think the college girls might like it more... series in books has become a big trend now, Have to be careful or we need to read the whole series.
