Présentation de l'éditeur

The past will always find you...

Jos Archer was the girl with the perfect life—until the night it all came crashing down around her. Now, nine months later, she still hasn’t begun to pick up the pieces. Even transferring to a new college and living under the watchful eye of her older sister, Renee, isn’t enough to help her feel normal again. And then she meets Dusty Sharp. For reasons Jos can’t begin to fathom, the newly reformed campus bad boy seems determined to draw her out of her shell. And if she’s not careful, his knowing green eyes and wicked smile will make her feel things she’s no longer sure she deserves. But even as Dusty coaxes Jos to open up about the past, he’s hiding secrets of his own. Secrets about the night her old life fell apart. When the truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together—or tear them apart for good?

'A wonderful, captivating, and heartbreaking story that pulled me in from page one.' -Jessica Sorensen,

I was lucky enough to get a ARC ecopy of My Sweetest Escape. I absolutely loved it! In my opinion you can never go wrong picking up one of Chelsea Cameron's books. This book happens to be the 2nd book in the series but are based on different characters. With that said I have yet to have the opportunity to read the first book in the series ( My Favorite Mistake) and having only read the second book I found it can be read as a stand alone book. You can be completely satisfied with how the book plays out and not be confused and wonder what had happened in the first book. Sure for me now I am dying to get my hands on the first book because I want to know what happened in the first book. I really like Chelsea's form of writing. It tend to be simple, easy to process and very enjoyable.

My Sweetest Escape is told in the POV of a girl name 'Jos'. We follow her as she learns that life isn't always easy and that you need to 'Live the day' Meaning take one day at a time and enjoy life. She started to go down a path she thought meant living and got into a little trouble. Which ended up with her having to go live with her sister. That is where she meets the ever charming Dusty Sharp. sweet sweet Dusty..Dusty Starts to try and break down Jos's walls. Slowly he breaks through but his efforts are almost shattered by a secret. After one secret is share it seem things go well for the both of them until a deeper secret that hold Jos back from truly bring her walls down surfaces. After all is said and done they seem to realize that only living in the now and not dwell on the past or future is how they can truly be happy. I personally found Jos to be a awesome character, I love when she and Dusty tease/banter with each other. Their remarks flowed well together. I found I connected well with most if not all the characters in this book. I hope to see more in this series. I know I'm doing it backwards but I can't wait to read book 1 (My Favorite Mistake) in this series.

As for My Sweetest Escape I really enjoyed it and was happy how it played out. It was a fun, fast, romantic, charming, and very sweet read. I would definitely recommend it and will be picking up more of Chelsea's books soon!

Must Read!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More Awesomeness from Chelsea M. Cameron!! 28 janvier 2014

If you're a fan of My Favorite Mistake, go grab My Sweetest Escape now!!

Jos used to be uptight, predictable, and consistent, but after a tragedy in her life, she does a 180 and starts to lose control. Dusty, on the other hand, was wild, loose, and carefree until he was forced to see what he thought were the consequences of those actions, and change for the better. After being made to live with her sister as a result of her new found attitude, Jos runs into Dusty and the fireworks start.

Living in Yellowfield House (I love the British-ness of a house being named!)with her sister and her friends, Jos isn't too interested in making new friends or finding love. Her attitude is nowhere near "better to have loved and lost than to not have loved at all" , but as much as she tries pushing Dusty away, he's having none of it. They both have baggage and it's a battle of wills between the two of them to love and be loved.

My Sweetest Escape has just enough details from My Favorite Mistake to make you want to reread it, and even a memorable moment between Hunter and Taylor that will have you weak in the knees, but not so much that it can't be read as a stand alone. The story is well written with the right amount of humorous one-liners that you have come to expect from the author, and I found myself devouring the book just to find out what happened in Ros' and Dusty's past. With the Harry Potter and British literature references, the M&M and Skittle combo (I've actually tried it and it's not too bad!), the sock sliding, and a house full of hot guys and never ending supply of Nutella, I'd definitely recommend this to everyone! If there's one thing I could get from the author, even if it meant the blood of my first born, it's a book based on Jos' friend Hannah. We need more books, by good authors, with a heroine who is not physically perfect!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing second book! 28 janvier 2014

4 Stars!

Like always Chelsea did a bang up job. I absolutely loved My Favorite Mistake, the first book in this series and this wasn't any different.

I fell in love with Dusty. He was like the bad boy, but not exactly the bad boy, bad boy who doesn't do anything really bad in the present, but has done somewhat bad things in the past. He seemed extremely hot, I'm not one for extremely baggy pants, like his in the book, it's not really my thing, but other than that everything about him was hot. He was nice, protective, and swoon-worthy.

Jos was not what I thought should would be. When I found out there was going to be a second book and it was going to be Renee's sister, I thought she was going to be like Taylor and Renee's friends, as in dress like them and their personalities would be somewhat the same, but I was wrong. Jos was a guarded, snappy, dark thoughts along with alternative dress ware. As I read though, she wasn't always who she was in the present during this book. She used to dress differently and live a different lifestyle. Truthfully I like the person she was in the book than who she was in her past, the person we didn't get to see. I didn't quite like her past self.

I really liked the characters in this book and how we get to see more about Taylor and the rest of the bunch in this book. The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because I wish we would've seen more of a relationship between Jos and Dusty. They had a very explosive chemistry that they both fought for most of the book, But in my opinion they fought it too much and didn't get to see them together as much as I would have liked. I like being able to see the two main characters together in a relationship and see them get to know each other and banter. It makes books capture my attention more when they're like that. I loved this book, I just wish they didn't fight what they felt for so long.

Otherwise, I love this book and hope to see more in this series and more books produced in the future from Chelsea. I will always be a follower of her books, they're that good. So congrats Chelsea, you did a wonderful job, continue to make writing magic!

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy reading doesn't require much thinking 26 janvier 2014

Joscelyn Archer spent the first eighteen years of her life as the perfect daughter and sister is spite of her completely dysfunctional family so nine months ago when she crashed. No one could figure out why and she is not talking. Finally, in an effort to somehow regain some semblance of control the family decides that she will live with her older sister. Without her knowledge the sister asks a friend of a roommate, who has come back from his own bad times, to help watch over her. The problem is Dusty doesn’t just want to help Joscelyn come back from whatever happened to her nine months ago, he likes her but doesn’t want to betray the trust her sister put in him.

This is a Harlequin YA/NA book. So it is for older teens and adults because of language and sexual involvement of the characters. I enjoyed the writing and I enjoyed the story. The characters are all university students. They have some similarities to the students with whom I spend a great deal of my time. I am a university professor. However, they are all attractive looking, live off campus in a huge, beautiful house, everyone gets along, and they are all involved with someone that they care deeply about. There is one character, Hannah; a new friend Joscelyn makes who has bad burns on her arm and face. She has some inner strength because she is able to ignore rude comments and that is why Joscelyn, Dusty and the roommates like her. However, she is able to cover it with her hair and it “wasn’t that bad once you’d been looking at it for a while.”

So expect the problems in this book to be solved easily. At one point in the story the character of Joscelyn wishes that she could have a script from a television show so that she would know what to say next. Well this book is pretty close to the television script where everything is solved and tied up with a pretty bow in just thirty minutes, in this case it is three hundred and sixty-two pages, but how can you fault that knowing that it is a Harlequin? Other than too much perfection perhaps for real life and a story that was slightly improbable, this was a good book to read. It would be a fun, mindless afternoon; beach read or spend the day reading book. If you are looking for books that just take you away and don’t require much thinking on your part, here it is.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 3.5 to 4 stars. Enjoyed spending time with the characters. 28 janvier 2014

One incident changed Jos' life so significantly that her entire personality and outlook on life changed. The once put together, studious, good girl just disappeared into a downward spiral of partying, drinking, and poor grades. Her concerned family forced her to leave the University of New Hampshire and transfer to to the University of Maine and live with her sister Renee and her room mates so she could be more closely supervised.

Renee lives with Hunter, his girlfriend Taylor, Darah, her boyfriend Mase, and Renee's boyfriend Paul that we met in My Favorite Mistake. They take her in immediately even though Jos is resistant to the happy, fun, but concerned vibe of the house. They all kind of take on Jos sitting duties.

She meets Dusty by coincidence and he turns out to be a friend of Hunter's. He is flirty, cocky, and bit pushy. And they just keep crossing paths and bantering back and forth.

Jos is trying to get her life back together but is stuck. She is hampered by loss, guilt, and has not shared with anyone. She is closed off, avoiding relationships, and confrontation. But her new friends and Dusty keep trying to find a way to reach her.

Dusty is suffering from his own issues and life changes. He has a checkered past, but is trying to make positive improvements. He has his own reasons for avoiding a relationship with Jos, but he finds it hard to resist her. They are clearly attracted to each other, but take turns pushing the other one away. I liked Dusty and he was an interesting character with his beat boxing skills and dynamic personality. But I have to admit that I got tired of the visual of Dusty's saggy pants that defy gravity (something that is just a personal pet peeve for me in real life so it did not make him more appealing to me.)

They both have secrets. All along the mystery slowly unravels of what happened to both of them in the past to make them change. And the mystery kept driving me crazy trying to figure it out. There were surprising plot twists and connections. I have to admit that the pacing was a little slow for me at times especially at the beginning. Their resisting without obvious reasons and incredible sexual tension was a bit frustrating, and I was ready to find out what all of the underlying issues were causing them to retreat. It did get more emotional and hopeful as it went on, but then it almost became rushed. The characters were both broken, but were able to understand enough to encourage the other to heal. But trust and opening up took a long time.

And all of the supporting characters also had a hand in helping these two become attached and live life again. I enjoyed spending more time with Hunter, Taylor, Darah, Mase, Renee, and Paul. They are such a tight group of friends and all of them living under one roof was kind of a madhouse at times, but their witty banter and humor was entertaining. I still adore Hunter and Mase. They are such funny, sweet, and devoted guys. It was enjoyable to see the relationships of the couples from the first book continue to be fun, supportive, loving, and progress. Renee was an overbearing big sister, but her heart was in the right place. But sometimes I really wanted to tell her to just chill out. I really loved Jos' new, unique friend Hannah. She was feisty and strong despite some challenges she faced. Her attitude was inspiring and just what Jos needed. I would like to see her as a main character in her own story.

This story was about facing demons, forgiveness, opening up, and moving forward. It was full of sexual tension, some angst, secrets, and drama. The mystery of their pasts was intriguing and kept me reading. I can't say that I liked it quite as much as My Favorite Mistake, but it was nice revisiting with the gang.

Thanks to Chelsea M. Cameron, Harlequin HQN, and Netgalley for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.
