Présentation de l'éditeur

Seventeen-year-old Riley Regas has spent her entire life in Boston, so when she learns she’ll be picking up and moving to her mother’s childhood home of Carver, Kansas, she is less than thrilled. In fact, she is downright furious. Riley’s only visited Carver a handful of times. She barely knows her family that lives there and she has no desire to spend her senior year among the backwards residents of Carver.

Reluctantly though, her views begin to change when she meets Alex Bettencourt. Alex is popular and gorgeous and Riley’s never seen brown eyes quite like his before.

While Riley couldn’t be happier, she knows Jesse, her best friend in Carver, isn’t sure of her new relationship with Alex. She soon finds a balance between Alex and her friends though and life in Carver doesn’t seem so bad after all, even if her relationship with her mother is rocky at best.

Just when Riley thinks she might be happy in Carver, a single decision changes it all, leaving her to find out who she really is and who matters most in her life before she loses everything.

This is the first of three books in The Home Series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Everybody needs a friend like Jesse 21 décembre 2013

This story is about a 17 year old girl named Riley. She grew up in Boston and after her parent's divorce, her mother decides to move back in with her mother in Carver, a small town in Kansas. Riley chooses to move to Carver with her mom rather than live with her dad and his new girlfriend in Boston.

Here she meets a new bunch of friends and becomes particularly close to Jesse. She also catches the eye of the school heart throb and very popular Alex Bettencourt. Alex seems like a genuinely nice guy but his friends are all horrible, and Riley gives him a shot anyway, and their relationship begins to grow, as does her friendship with Jesse which Alex is not fond of. I won't say much else here except to say... "I KNEW IT!" lol - no more hints from me!

The book is told from Riley's POV. I love her character and I love her strength and how she stands up to Adrienne and the other people in school, however, I didn't like her attitude towards her mother - though I guess that could be a attributed to teenage hormones! But her random snappiness (even with Jesse) was kind of strange. Though again - teenage drama. Could be that I'm getting too old to read these books (LOL!) and I don't get their attitudes anymore.

My only problem with this book is how fast it wrapped up, I was a bit disappointed (and panicked because I thought it might have a cliffhanger ending and I would wreck my kindle in frustration - seriously authors - cut those out). But I digress. I was at about 96% and I still hadn't gotten my HEA ending and I thought, crap, if it happens I'm not going to get enough story to really enjoy it. And yes - it wrapped up that quickly. No cliffhanger to put you in an asylum, but definitely not enough to satisfy me.

Would I recommend this book? Yes
Did I enjoy it? Yes
Would I like to see a few chapters (or a long epilogue) added on to the end? Absolutely

This really was more of a teen romance than I thought it would be. The storyline was very predictable, nothing new to see here, folks. The punctuation, grammar, and spelling errors were so bad that at times the story was unreadable. I have bookmarked the errors and plan to send an email to the author so she can do a better job next time. I have no interest in reading the rest of the books in the series.

I loved how relatable Riley and her friends were. this was a really heartwarming book. from family problems and the typical high school drama with bitchy slut and her minions, this story was really good. I hope this series continues to be amazing. looking forward to continue reading the series.

I don't normally read books that have no reviews!( I know I'm kind of a snob that way lol) but this was a really good book. It was a refreshingly normal and believable book! (which lets face it these days it's hard to find) If you like young adult coming of age books you will love this one! I don't want to say any specifics about the book just give it a try and read it you won't be disappointed!! I would definitely recommend this book!

I really hate dropping books and I'm annoyed as hell doing that, makes me even more angry than I am with the "heroine".

Let's see. She is a whiny, annoying, stuck-up and selfish b*tch. It's obvious that her mother had a good reason for moving to Kansas and making her daughter change her school in her senior year, but she doesn't even care to ask. She thinks her mom is so stupid she just moved for fun, and she just wants to ruin her perfect little world. I mean, no parent would move his/her child to another city in senior year without a good reason. I'm guessing her grandma is sick or something like that, or they're out of money, and these are pretty good reasons - although I'm not sure about these things since I can't get myself to continue reading.

Ok, so she is angry with her mom, I guess I can understand that for an extent (for about 2 or 3 weeks). She is a teenage girl, and teenagers can be pretty selfish. But the one thing I couldn't understand is that why is she so eager to make it obvious that this town is a piece of s***? She thinks that living in a big city makes you big as well. She didn't achieved it herself, she didn't have to do anything for living there, just had to born there, so what's the big deal? Why doesn't she realize that she is being rude and she virtually calls everyone a retard just because they live in Kansas?

She didn't respect her friends, her family, so I can't respect her even for a minute, and these kind of "heroines" make me so angry, I want to reclaim the money and time I've spent on the book. The problem is not that she is mean and she has superior complex and she is the protagonist of this book (I mean there are good books with negative characters as protagonists), the problem is that the writer makes it seem okay and even cool. I assume there's character development in the further chapters, but I can't make myself to wait for it anymore.

About the other characters, Jesse and the grandma are the only likeble people in this book. I like the grandma's cheerful personality and her being a major soup opera fun, and I liked Jesse always being honest, and always having the guts to scold Riley. Also, I can respect him for giving her another chance (actually a lot of another chances), I wouldn't have done that in his place.

To sum up, I think the protagonist is the worst character I've ever seen, not likable, not charming, clearly not strong (even though the writer wanted to make her seem like it) not very bright or selfless, but a major pain in the *ss.

It was boring, shallow and easily predictable, making me want to scrape the wall. Although I'm curious about the ending (I'm making assumptions: she has to chose betwen Alex and her friends, and she'll stand on the wrong side, Alex only wants sex, they break up, she realizes she loves Jesse, they reconcile with her mom when she tells Riley the reasons of her decision, she gets together with Jesse, everyone's happy. I can only expect cliché and simple things after reading the half of the book, I'm sorry.), I think it doesn't worth the effort.
