Blog Tour: Derailed by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Welcome to my stop on the Veer Blog Tour
hosted by Supagurl Tours.
Click HERE to check out the rest of the tour schedule.
Although this is a Veer Blog Tour, I only received Derailed, 
so I guess I can only review Derailed, but Veer would still be promoted. 

Derailed (Clayton Falls, #1)Blurb:

When you're lost, sometimes the only place you can go is home.

Broken over the death of her fiancé, Molly leaves law school to return to her childhood home in North Carolina. Expecting to lay low until she can figure out what else to do with her life, she finds herself in the arms of her high school sweetheart, the boy who represents everything from the past she tried to leave behind.

Looking for an escape, she instead finds a way back to the girl she almost forgot existed and a future she never dreamed possible.

Cindy's Review: My first interpretation of this book was when I started reading. I thought it would another one of those new adult novels that I wouldn't be interested in, since I enjoy young adult novels more. But turns out the taste isn't that different as young adult novels. It's just that the main character are about 5 years older and they have more independence and they don't go to school. And they also live alone. 

The romance isn't that different from young adult novels because I could accept. I actually enjoyed the romance parts (like the small kisses only, cuz I'm not a porn reader). And even though yes, there are like two sex scenes, which doesn't tell you anything since they just tell you it's gonna happen, not the whole feelings and the disgusting details some author provides, no offense. I'm just not an adult romance reader and I don't enjoy erotic books. 

The main character's only 22 and Ben, her ex-boyfriend, whom she's getting back together again (Yes!) is 23. Their ages aren't that far apart. That's what I like. And I can just imagine them as 17 and 18. LOL. But their surroundings are different. Either way, totally enjoyable read here. 

I wanted to read Veer but I didn't even receive the book. Oh well. It think Veer is a different story with different characters, so that will make it interesting. ;D

VeerVeer (A Clayton Falls Novel)

Only when you let go can you learn to live.

Between the death of her mother and pushing through law school without her best friend, it's been a tough year for Becca. Needing a break from Boston, she moves to a tiny coastal North Carolina town for a relaxing summer. After bumping heads repeatedly with a local cop, she realizes her summer will be anything but quiet.
Three years after a career ending injury ruins his chance to play Major League Baseball, Gavin has a distrust of northerners and lately girls in general. He wants nothing to do with a girl who is only in town for the summer.

When the two give in to their impossible attraction, they realize that they may just have found the key to freeing themselves from the ghosts of their pasts.
