BLOG TOUR - Choosing You by Allie Everhart

Choosing You by Allie Everhart
(The Jade Series #1)
Publication date: September 23rd 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

When Jade is given a scholarship to an elite private college in Connecticut, she sees it as a chance to finally escape her painful past and get a fresh start. She’s determined to succeed and that means keeping her focus on school and not guys. But her plan falls apart her first day on campus when Garret, a rich prep school boy with swimmer abs and a perfect smile, offers to help her move in.

Jade tries to push him away, but she can’t deny her attraction to him and Garret won’t let her. Things quickly heat up between them, but then come to a sudden halt when reality hits and Jade realizes that a relationship with Garret may never be possible. He comes from a world of wealth where there are rules, including rules about who he can date. And not following those rules has consequences.

As the two of them try to overcome the obstacles working to keep them apart, Jade is confronted with another challenge. On her 19th birthday, she receives a letter that her now deceased mother wrote years ago. In it are revelations that explain her traumatic childhood but also make her question the past she’s been running from.

 A really good NA, Contemporary Romance!!

I was pleasantly captivated by Jade's story. It was one of those can't put it down reads for sure. And I was all like, "What, no!" When I came to the end of the story! Aaah! I so need the next book! I am definitely going to see the series through. It has a good amount of mystery and intrigue to it. I like the writing and I love the plot. I like the interaction between Jade and Garrett, alot. The world that Garrett lives in is a complicated one alright. 

Jade has just begun her college journey and is finding out alot of things about herself. She tries desperately to let go of the past that has shaped so much of her future. I was pretty much glued to the pages on this one. It definitely does not disappoint! If you like the coming of age drama with a side of Jacked up and hot guy, this is most definitely the read you are looking for!

Jade is a great MC who has moved on from her painful past and is having to learn to  interact with others. She has kept to herself because it's safe that way and Garrett is slowly but surely determined to infiltrate her safety walls she built up. I love the progression of what they have in this book and i was pretty much stunned at the plot twist at the end!! I love the characters, the story and the setting for it all. This was definitely one of my favorites so far this year and I have no doubt that I will be reading the rest of this series ASAP!

Allie Everhart writes about dating, love, and romance. She’s also a freelance writer for magazines and websites. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, running, or binge-watching TV shows on DVD. Some of her favorites are Gilmore Girls, Mad Men, Veronica Mars, and Gossip Girl. When writing her novels, Allie likes to drink dark-roast coffee when writing suspense scenes and red wine when writing love scenes. And eating chocolate is good when writing any kind of scene.
