REVIEWED BY SARAH
* I received a review copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*
“People who don’t experience pain like that-they don’t turn out to be people of substance. You know, people who make a difference.”
This story started out pretty typical for me. Girl goes to rock concert in support of her friend who is a HUGE fan. Meets rocker. Instant love. Chaos ensues. What I didn’t expect was for their magnetism and chemistry to literally jump off the pages. This is no dove releasing, angels playing harps, love story. This is a story about growth, denial, and discovering who you are. The road isn’t always easy, and you may not always end up where you think you will, but the journey is significant.
“No you don’t,” he says, angrily throwing my arms away from my face. “I want to hear you. I need to hear that I make you feel good.”
Tracks is the tale of Dylan and Jeremy. I know a lot of people have a hard time believing in instant love. But when it is written well, and you connect with the characters, it works. Dylan and Jeremy worked. You could sense something else going on that wasn’t clear at the moment, and yes, you will figure it out LONG before Dylan, but always on the forefront was their love for each other. Sometimes people meet and you are like, hello, there you are. When people speak of your heart finding its other half, I experienced it in this book.
“I don’t want you to do anything you’re not comfortable with. But I can’t resist you anymore. The way you walk, Dylan. The way you sparkle in that dress. The shape of your body. Your pretty face. The way you look at me, like you actually care for me. I need to have you.”
Dylan comes from a broken home and doesn’t want to repeat the mistakes of her parents. Despite all the warning signs, she cannot stay away. I just wanted to grab and shake the poor girl. This was an educated woman, in Harvard law school in fact. Surely she couldn’t be so blind in love as to see what was right in front of her face.
“This ain’t a fairytale, Ms. Ackhart, and I’m no prince.”
Though we only receive minuscule bits and pieces about Jeremy’s past, it is clear from the beginning that this is a man with A LOT of demons. My only gripe with this book is that I wish we had received more information on him. I just knew he had a story to tell, but as the entire story was in Dylan’s POV, we only received what he shared with her.
“I don’t have to, but I want to. Because I love him. And when you love someone, their problems become your problems, and their pain becomes your pain.”
There are some things that play out in the end that I thought were told with a gritty honesty. And although I wanted to knock some sense into Brook to open her eyes, I understand how love can be blind. I was left wanting more, much more. Luckily there is another book in this series. I cannot wait to see where the road takes Dylan and Jeremy. 4 star read for me, just because the beginning was a little slow to my liking. Once it picked up though, hold on for the ride!
