A SAHM that reads and reviews romance (all sub genres of romance), Urban Fantasy & Sci-Fi, sometimes Horror, and YA (some sub genres of it).
I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice. Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.
Brooklyn Skye’s Bone Deep is a story about a young man, Krister, who is haunted by what his father did during his job. All his family and friends have moved on with their lives or at least made changes, but unfortunately Krister can’t. In fact he’s skipping college classes, quitting his job, and moping around to get by. Krister is never been able to forgive for what happened because he can’t just switched off what his father did. It doesn’t help when all of sudden someone keeps leaving him cryptic messages, and he knows it has to be someone that lost a loved one during his father’s train accident at work. He’s determined more than ever to figure out who it is and try to help himself and the person get closure.
In the mean time, he ends up meeting a girl that he can’t seem forget. She’s always at the train station with a poncho on waiting for the train, but she never gets on for some reason. The minute he finally has the guts to approach her, she blows him off until much later. When these two finally do decide to talk neither one will be able to resist each other. In fact both of them are helping each other, but in different ways. Cambria has no idea who Krister is and when she does find out she may never want to speak with him again.
Bone Deep is a story about two people grieving in two different ways. Krister who is dealing with what his father did, and Cambria who is trying to help her brother and getting over what happened to her mom. Bone Deep dives into the issue of telling someone you love the truth that may end up hurting them in the long run. Krister is going through that the minute he finds out who Cambria is really. Bone Deep is a typical New Adult romance book with his angst and romance, but in the mince of it, it’s the storyline that will engage readers. You’ll want to figure out who’s behind the cryptic messages and also want to know if Krister and Cambria will get some kind of peace and happiness.
Krister may have gotten on my nerves with the secret he kept from Cambria, but there is a reason why he didn’t want to tell her. He was waiting for the right time, but he did take too long. (stubborn young man) Cambria was stronger than she was willing to believe because she was trying to make amends to what happened a year ago. She was trying to be the stronger one, especially when it came to her brother. She needed to meet Krister to help her along. Krister also helped her with bucket list that she created, which was a plus.
***The best part of Bone Deep was the ending because of how everything came back together. =)
This is the first book I’ve read from Brooklyn Skye and I definitely look forward to reading more books from her very soon. I give this book 4 full moons and recommend it to readers out there that enjoy the New Adult genre.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from InkSlinger PR for the Blog Tour in exchange for an honest review.
