Présentation de l'éditeur

Art student, Olivia Banks, was living her dream at an exclusive school when everything came crashing down around her. Now back in the small town she grew up in, she's forced to spend her senior year at her old school where she's known as the 'freak', all because she'd rather focus on her painting than the trivial drama of high school. But things aren't the same as they were when she left. And the one thing that is turning her life upside down the most just happens to be the resident bad boy, Colt Morgan. Her senior year was supposed to fly by so she could pack up and leave again, but what happens when there's suddenly a reason to want to stay?

*17+ MATURE YA / New Adult. This book contains strong language and some sexual content. For mature audiences.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Light, simple, and incredibly sweet. 29 mai 2014
Par Valeria - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wow, Janelle did it again! She has such a way with words all her stories flow so easily. This time she decided to explore into contemporary and the result was great. I have to admit that the simplicity of the plot was the best part of everything. Basically it goes like this: boy and girl next door have been secretly stalking each other from afar during years, and finally gather the courage to talk and exploit their undying love. Throw in a little help from their friends, and you got yourself a great story. Simple, but cute and endearing. Plus, Janelle really knows how to toss some unexpected turns and add some strokes of her own originality, blending it all in some masterpiece. Just a quick heads up, she will fool you big time! And I loved it! So be prepared for whatever.

But what is really great about the story is that it works. It is fun, unexpected and believable. This could happen to anyone you know, and the best part is that you will get so easily lost in the romance; you won’t know what hit you. It is intense and moderate at the same time, and it honestly captures the strength and rush you feel when love as passionate as that strikes you.

It was easy to fell for these characters, especially because their relationships ringed so true to me. The loyalty, and teasing and frowning at each other, was pretty much every good friendship relationship out there. I have even met the type of pushy friend like Ella, though I liked her better, because she was sassy, straight forward and very reliable. I’m actually so glad we’ll be getting her story next, because honestly, I can’t wait to get me some more of this. Nonetheless, I wished I had known from the beginning this was going to be a series.

I also adored Rannon. Colt and he make such a great and fun pair to be around. Again, his loyalty simply won me over (yeah, loyalty is pretty big with me); not only to his friend, but the love they shared for each other extended to the unspoken duty of taking care of each other’s family as well. I really loved to see how they got each other’s back.

Last but not least, Olive and Colt, hot! I’ve already talked a bit about their relationship, so if you want to know more, read the book, it’s worth it.

I’ve said this so many times before, but I really am a sucker for dual points of view; and yet again I was proven right. When it is well done, like in this book, it adds something extra, because you get the whole story. It’s always important to get both sides of a story before truly understanding how things really happened, and that absolutely applied to this book.

In sum, awesome story, great characters, hot and sweet romance, great writing and some funny surprises equals a great book!

*Note: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, but my opinion was not biased in any way by this fact.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Painting Love Into Your Heart 12 juillet 2014
Par Veronica @ Mostly Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Janelle's first contemporary novel didn't disappoint me at all. I have a bbad past with the genre. I can never really get into contemporary novels so I mostly stay away from them, but once in a while one book will show up in my radar that I know I have to give it a try. Brush Strokes was it. I really enjoyed this little piece of heaven that Janelle created.

Brush Strokes is the story of Olivia and Colt. They are next door neighbors that always had a thing for each other but never even talked. So, when Olivia leaves to go to art school and then comes back, Colt decides it's time for a change. They start hanging out and getting to know each other and fall even harder in love. Their love story was really sweet, warm and fuzzy. But besides the two MCs Janelle did a great job with the secondary characters, especially the two best friends. They were a breath of fresh air, giving the story a more fun side.

All in all, this was a great story. I loved how each chapters started with a quote about art and how Colt and Olivia's story progressed and bloomed. Highly recommended for lovers of contemporary novels.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Combustible romantic chemistry 16 février 2015

Olivia and Colt are two opposites in looks, academics, home-life, etc department. You name it these two don't look like they fit, but looks are deceiving and feelings cannot be denied. I really enjoyed this book. It was paced just right and let you melt with the sincere dialog. The author didn't make Olivia perfect - even though she was perceived to be by so many. She was flawed, insecure and really her own worst critic and enemy.

Olivia and Colt have been neighbors for sometime. They have both enjoyed admiring and lusting after each other from a far. But they both don't have the courage to take that next step - that is until their senior year. It only takes one encounter for them to see that they would be great together- but their insecurities are roadblocks in their budding relationship.

Although Colt was a tattooed, lip pierced, hottie - he didn't treat Olivia with a jerk attitude. If anything he was beyond sweet, gentle, and respectful. The romance between these two is captivating. It kinda reminded me of the book Bully without the jerk guy attitude. There was just this combustible chemistry that oozed from the pages. Additionally, I liked the fact that Olivia's parents were not superficial, over protective parents. They liked Colt and trusted him based on his attitude, not his looks. Everything was plausible and also refreshing. It was not filled with huge amounts of drama - it is just a sweet, young love story.

I highly recommend this book! This author can write. She can evoke so many different emotions in the reader with her literary talent. I will certainly re-read this gem at some point, thus the five stars. I would rate the sizzle as R - there is one love scene which is a little descriptive. There is underage drinking, and just normal teen immature behavior. However, none of this is over the top and everything is done tastefully. One click this one - you won't regret it!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "Art Girl" meets "Bad Boy"... What could *possibly* go wrong? ;-) 27 mai 2014
Par HR Duby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Books told from the first person point of view often leave half of the story untold. One of the ways that authors get around that is by alternating the point of view between the main characters and that can often feel like “cheating”. Not so in Janelle Stalder’s novel, Brush Strokes. Ms. Stalder alternates between the first person points of view of Olivia Banks, a senior in high school who has long been known as the “weird art girl”, and Colt Morgan, a bad boy who lives next door to Olivia. Filled with many of the tropes found in romance novels (such as the hero and heroine both like each other a lot more than the other believes), Brush Strokes does not come across as clichéd because of the introduction of Olivia’s art, and through her art, Olivia discovers that worst-case scenarios aren’t always what they first seem to be.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and I look forward to Ella’s story. The characters are believable and the story had enough twists and complications to keep my attention throughout. Because the characters are believable, and because many teenagers are finding themselves in sexual situations, I would caution that this book be read only by mature readers 16+. The sexual situations are not extremely graphic, but they are present. The book does have a non-cliffhanger (yay!), happily-ever-after ending.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 has a thing for her and pretty much always has 10 décembre 2014

Olivia is an outcast. Or she thinks she's one because she lives in her head so much. And she can't see that the boy next door, Colt, has a thing for her and pretty much always has. I liked this story. There were some things I didn't (like the fact that the love interest was a bit of a womanizer-I really don't care for that kind of thing especially since they're still in high school), but overall, I enjoyed the story. I liked the stories Olivia makes up for her paintings. And in some ways, I wish they were fleshed out into their own books, because they were good stories. I liked Colt. He was very likeable (minus the womanizing) and I did feel for him in regards to his family situation-his dad was a jerk. I like how he was with Olivia because he wasn't the "bad boy" but instead a sweetheart and he realised the error of his womanizing ways. I loved Ella and really liked Rannon too. They were both great friends to Olivia and Colt. I'm giving thie 4 stars because I found it to be an enjoyable quick read and I wouldn't mind reading it again sometime in the future.
