Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
So, I first read the incredible The Education of Sebastian soon as it came out and was blown away. I’d seen it on several blog sites but wasn’t sure I could find the idea of a 17 year old a good romatic male lead. Jane though has the talent to make Sebastian sound perfect, no spotty gangly youth, but a toned, tanned young man, aged beyond his years. Of course I had to buy the next book, then a couple more and then saw this one for only 77p…well, who could resist – even though once again there’s a younger male lead.
Well, its a romance with a difference. We slowly see how Cody insinuates himslef into Ava’s life and teaches her that every day is to be valued. He puts the fun back into her life, makes her realise what she has got, not focus on what she hasn’t yet achieved. There are some wonderful descriptions – those sunset and sunrise ones are so vivid I wanted to be there. I loved the Native Indian elderly lady they met too – wise words from her. I’m not ashamed to say that I cried at this book, big soppy, wet tears were rolling down my face…..yet in spite of that its a fabulous read that had happiness in among the sadness. A real bittersweet read. I’d recommend it as one to savour, to read and take in Cody’s views – many of his words are with me days and several other books after reading.
Stars: Five – It’s a fabulous read, not a long one and ends at 60% on kindle with samples of a few of Janes other books there.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
