Book Review: All grown up by Vi Keeland


ALL GROWN UP IS LIVE!
A Standalone Contemporary Romance
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

SYNOPSIS
When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too yo ung for me.
Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ag es twenty - one to twenty - seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn&rsq uo;t supposed to.
Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I fi nally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.
Though, you know what they say…curiosi ty kills the cat.
My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.
But…he looked so familiar.
As I got closer I realized why.
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s s ummer home.
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man.
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaur ant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.
Which I did. Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?


REVIEW
WOW!!  A-FREAKING-MAZING.  This book was everything and is my new favorite book by Vi Keeland.  I love Vi Keeland, as I've reviewed many times before, she never fails to capture me with her words from the first page until the last page.

All grown up was soooo relatable for me.  I absolutely love Valentina.  I've never connected so much with one of Vi Keeland's characters as I did with Valentina.  She's 37, gorgeous, living in Jersey, and after a 20 year marriage ended, she finds herself in new territory.  It's like Vi Keeland wrote this book for me personally.  

After being single for quite a while Valentina's best friend sets up a dating profile for her to put her back out there.  She starts getting messages from a younger, SUPERRRR attractive, funny man.  She really has no interest but just chats as friends until she agrees to one date, where everything changes.

I am obsessed with these two.  I love their chemistry, I love that Valentina gets a second chance at happiness, I love the scorching hot whirlwind of a ride that I was taken on while reading this book.

I'm rating this book 5 stars because it was just a good story and Vi Keeland is such a good story teller.  I felt allll the feels. I fell in love with the characters.  It was so good I finished it in one sitting.  Such a great summer read.  GO OUT AND ONE CLICK THIS!

Eve’s face flashed on the screen, and I swiped to answer.
“Give me all the details.”
I shook my head repeatedly, even though she couldn’t see me. “It was horrible.”
“What happened? What did the bastard do to you? I’ll cut his balls off.”
Eve’s response made me smile for the first time since I’d laid eyes on my date. “No. It wasn’t that kind of horrible. He was a perfect gentleman.”
“Okay…”
“Very sweet and funny, too.”
“Sounds awful,” she said sarcastically.
“And gorgeous.”
“The balls on him.”
“That’s not the worst part.”
“Let’s see…he’s young, gorgeous, sweet, and funny. What could be worse than that? He’s hung like a horse?”
“I wouldn’t know. And you know why I don’t know that?”
“Because you’re an uptight prude who hasn’t been laid in years?”
“That might be true. But the larger problem is that he is one of Ryan’s friends.”
Eve cackled. “That’s not a problem, that’s fantastic! Bang his brains out and send him to play golf with your ex. Let him eat his heart out when he realizes what he lost.”
“Ummm…Eve, I wasn’t talking about my ex, Ryan. I was talking about my son.”
“I’ll be over in twenty minutes.”

Book Review: Every Moment After by Joseph Moldover



Every Moment After
Author: Joseph Moldover
Reading Level: Young Adult | Teen
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Released: April 9th 2019
Review Source: Nicole Banholzer PR, LLC

Best friends Matt and Cole grapple with their changing relationships during the summer after high school in this impactful, evocative story about growing up and moving on from a traumatic past.

Surviving was just the beginning.

Eleven years after a shooting rocked the small town of East Ridge, New Jersey and left eighteen first graders in their classroom dead, survivors and recent high school graduates Matt Simpson and Cole Hewitt are still navigating their guilt and trying to move beyond the shadow of their town's grief. Will Cole and Matt ever be able to truly leave the ghosts of East Ridge behind? Do they even want to?

As they grapple with changing relationships, falling in love, and growing apart, these two friends must face the question of how to move on—and truly begin living.

High school graduation is a time of celebration. Not only are you done with adolescence, but you are making your way to adulthood. For Cole and Matthew, graduation means something different. They, along with their fellow graduates, stare at the black memorial chairs meant the symbolize those lost in a school shooting. Summer is not just the relaxation and excitement awaiting for the fall, but a final moment to really decide who they are as adults.

Every Moment After is a story following Cole and Matthew, best friends, who are survivors of a school shooting. One of the themes this book touches on is the survivor mentality. Cole was present during the shooting, while Matthew was home sick. Something the Moldover, the author, does is give the audience the ability to walk through this perspective of survivor's guilt that is not explored enough in media. Matthew suffers with guilt for not being present during the shooting. He doesn't feel like he deserves his success and life when so many of his friends have suffered. Matthew struggles with the idea of being a survivor when he spent the day in bed reading comics. Cole blocks the events of the day. He is known as the boy in the photo. Made famous because of the actions of another. Being in the spotlight gives Cole anxiety and he struggles with being able to express himself to a girl he loves. Most people would think surviving would be enough to give a person a renewed sense of life, but as we read, this is something Matthew and Cole question about themselves.

Every Moment After is a thought provoking read. I thought about my own adolescence and could only imagine how similar our issues were. The biggest difference is I didn't have to struggle with the feeling that I should be grateful to be alive. Being alive is something most of us take for granted. We don't realize how the actions of one could have drastically changed not only our life, but who we become. Moldover gives us the chance to see how life changes and how it stays the same. We all struggle on who we are suppose to be and act. I saw this book as a chance to self reflect and truly think on how we want to be in our on life.
