ABOUT THE BOOK 

Reagan Bellamy’s neighbor, Dash Carter, refuses to wither under her stare. Reagan’s too busy to waste time on a loser with musical pipe dreams. Between classes and her need to stay ahead of the game, she’s got too much on her plate to give him the time of day.

For the first time in a long time, Dash Carter feels optimistic about the future. He’s clean, he’s on a good path, and he’s surrounded himself with people who make life better. Unfortunately, his beautiful neighbor still thinks he’s a slacker, bothering Dash more than it should. When Dash inadvertently puts Reagan in a difficult position with her new boss, he becomes more invested in her life despite warnings from his mentor to not get involved with someone whose beliefs don’t match his own.

The more Reagan digs her heels in against the religious freaks she’s forced to interact with, the more she begins to question everything she’s built her life upon. When the tide begins to turn in Reagan’s heart and her worldview flips upside down, trusting God means putting everything on the line, including her heart.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Christy Hayes is a new author for me, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. And I will say I was pleasantly surprised at how well I liked this book, and how well it is written. Reagan really couldn’t stand Dash Carter, but for some reason he’d had a crush on her for a long time. It’s after Dash found Jesus, that he gave up his life of drugs, sex and partying during and after each gig he and his band preformed. But now his new band preforms in church, which Reagan finds out after Dash tricks her into going.

Most of the characters here are collage age, but they were realistic, the scenes played out were just as it would be in the real life of collage kids. The story and characters develop well as the story progresses! And through this would be an excellent read for a teenager, I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Dash and Reagan deals with situations and issues our teens and even younger kids as well deal with in today’s world. And Christy Hayes does a really nice job of clearly explaining the temptations and dangers of following the world and what it has to give. As well as explaining the Christian life and how to live as Christ wants us too. And she does it in a way that fits in well with the everyday life of the characters, not in a pushy and preachy way. And I like that she doesn’t leave out the struggles a person has after they accept Christ into their lives. The gig scenes especially were very intense, offering a lot as the world wants to offer. This would be more of an edgy Chrisitan fiction, but it’s one I would want my teenager to read!

A lot goes on in this story, I’ve only hit the surface, so I strongly encourage you to pick up a copy for yourself and see what you think. It is truly several hours of entertainment!  I received this book from Prism Tours to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

I write romance, romantic women’s fiction, and Christian fiction from my second story office in the South. I’ve cooked up all kinds of trouble for my flawed characters when I’m not walking my dogs at a local park, binge watching TV with my husband, or wondering when my college-aged kids will call.

I have a new Christian new adult romance release available February 4, 2019 and up for pre-order on all the major retailers.
