Absolutely by Melissa Veracruz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


One mistake sends Ashlyn Ramos plummeting from popular naiveté and into the outskirts of the social order. She’s had a great life so far. So many things were going right! Now, she has a wrecked car, a parentally confiscated cell phone, and ex-friends making life miserable. Not the way she wanted to start the best year of her life. And walking to school was totally going to suck. Until she saw him on the sidewalk ahead of her. 

Kiel Fuller has a past he’d prefer to keep to himself. He’s had several rough years. His own fault, admittedly, for screwing up. Now, he’s settled in a small town and ready to make the most of senior year. However, his dad is borrowing his Jeep. Walking to school won’t suck too much, though. He could blast his iPod and think. What he didn’t count on was Ashlyn walking up beside him. 

It is not love at first walk. Kiel’s heard the rumors about her. And Ashlyn can’t make herself heard over his blaring iPod. They’re both facing demons, but they learn it’s better to face them together.


Would like to thank Melissa Veracruz for gifting me this book for a honest review.

We get this cute high school love story and we see the extremes bullies will go to hurt someone. We are introduced to Ash, a senior, cheerleader and popular girl in school and after one huge mistake she is cast out by her best friend Reyna and the rest of the popular crew. Ash lost her car and has to start walking to school and has to start making friends again.

On her walk to school she sees another classmate walking and starts to walk with him, this where Kiel comes in, he is a changed guy, he is on the football team and has heard the rumors about Ash and he doesn't want trouble and he sees Ash as trouble. He tries to resist Ash, but he is a good guy and likes her. Kiel hates how Ash is being bullied and defends her. When they finally start to spend more time together, Kiel gets to really know Ash and sees that she is just another victim to Reyna. Ash and Kiel's relationship really starts to get very heated and starts to get very serious.

I really loved this books, I also liked that we get both Kiel and Ash's POV. I loved that we get some Spanish lingo here, both Kiel and Ash's parents being part Hispanic and how Ash struggled so much in Spanish class. We really see Ash finally get her wake up call about life and how naive she was about her friends.

"My eyes were open now. I'd breezed through life following blindly in Reyna's wake, never seeing what she plowed through to get where she was going what she wanted. It may sound like I was the most naive person to have graced this earth. But I'm not the first or the last that has followed the person they thought was their friend, thought they could trust. And I won't be the last."

Thanks again!!!

The bloody, raw meat was tantalizing her; calling to her. She hated it and yearned for it all at once.
Stop, she ordered. What are you doing?!
So hungryyyyy, snarled a primal voice deep within her.
Don’t you dare! she screamed back.
But the primal hunger ignored her pleas and took over her body, forcing her rational voice deep within the crevices of her mind.

in ways you wouldn't and overwhelm your whole existence?

If everything you'd ever known about your life was a lie?

secrets, betrayal and murder, Jaz Barker struggles to fight against the
dangerous Beast within her and the emotions and desires it thrusts her

Disturbingly Beautiful Blog Tour!!!!!!

Disturbingly Beautiful

by J. & L. Wells

Series: A Paradox In Time, #1

Genre: Historical Romance/Time Travel

Release Date: November 13, 2014

Is it really possible that somewhere in time, the perfect paradox could be created? Does romance really stand a chance, and could it ever flourish amidst so many intricacies and broken lives? How can a nineteenth-century governess unknowingly cause so much devastation?

As Nell’s world opens up, we follow her on a complex journey, on which she discovers love, loss and betrayal, and is forced to play a dangerous game from which there appears to be no escape.

An intricate family plot slowly begins to unravel, in which she finds herself centre stage. She was never supposed to leave Haunchcroft estate, and he will do everything in his power to keep her there…

Could a possible rip in time be the salvation that Nell seeks?

“I find you disturbingly beautiful,” are the contradictory words bestowed upon the governess by her master.

Mr Buchannan’s infatuation is a shadow from which Nell cannot escape. The feelings he holds for her are not reciprocated, and though his lust soon turns to love, Nell’s feelings towards him turn to hatred. Dreams and a love of literature are Nell’s only escapism from the downtrodden life she leads as a governess in the nineteenth century.

One night, an intruder on the estate catches Nell off guard, but she gives chase; a decision that leads her through an opening in time between the centuries, where she finds equality, true friendship and a completely different outlook on life.

Despite using this to her advantage to escape the advances of her unwanted suitor, she is somewhat perturbed when she unexpectedly finds him at her side in the twenty-first century. Will love conquer all, or will time always stand in their way?

Laura Wells is a swimming teacher, with a love of books, animals and, of course, Jane Austen. Once a national swimmer, she now runs three swim schools of her own. She enjoys spending her spare time with her family and two mad Shiba Inus. She lives in Staffordshire, England.

Judy Wells works at a school; in her spare time she enjoys writing poetry and novels, and spending time with her animals. She also lives in Staffordshire, England.

Laura and Judy are a mother and daughter duo; with Judy's love of poetry and writing and Laura's ideas, they work extremely well together. Time-travel and historical romance novels are their passion, and they hope that after you have read their books, you will feel the same.
