To See You by Rachel Blaufeld

I’ve been a fan of Rachel Blaufeld for a while now, I really do enjoy her writing style and the characters she creates. So this book was 1 part long distance romance and 1 part figuring out figuring out where life is going to take the characters. I really liked the way the characters met, on a plane. I think we have all been there, getting on a plane full of strangers, sitting next to people who are you aren’t sure are going to get along with you: will they chew loudly, fall asleep on your shoulder, snore, be obnoxious, and the list goes on. Charli is our heroine and when she gets on the plane and sees Layton is going to be sitting next to her, she is more than a little bit judgmental. Layton is chubby, in a nerd t-shirt, and is a little on the friendly side, something Charli is in no way accustomed to. I really wanted to just Charli for being judgmental, but honestly I think we are all a little judgmental, so while I wish she wouldn’t have had snap judgments, I understood it. After a somewhat weird conversation, and finding out the two of them work in similar industries, they go their separate ways. A series of e-mails and the occasional meet up results in more conversations and encounters between the two of them. It was really easy for me to understand and like Charli, she’s inherently flawed, but she’s also in this […]

Dolce by Rachel Blaufeld

I am a big fan of Rachel Blaufeld, and when I pick up one of her books I am always excited because I know it’s going to be a good read. I read the first book in this series, and I enjoyed it a whole lot. That being said, you don’t have to read the first book to read this book, because this is several years in the future from the first one, and with a whole new cast of characters (although you do get some glimpses into the old characters). So, I went into this book really wanted to love it, but for me, honestly, I just didn’t get into this book like I do most of her books, which makes me a little sad. So the premise of the book is that two people are brought together while going to the same school, they have one guy in common, the shock jock Sonny. Cate is Sonny’s intern, and Blane is kind of friends with Sonny, and goes on the show because he is one of the star basketball players at this college. I wasn’t so much of a fan of any of the characters. But I will start with Sonny, Sonny, the shock jock, well I don’t know what to make of him honestly, especially in the beginning. He kind of comes off as the world’s biggest d-bag. I mean he treats Cate badly, takes some glee in putting his friends out there for public consumption, he just […]

Absolution Road by Rachel Blaufeld

I’m a pretty big fan of Rachel Blaufeld, she write really emotional/character driven books. I also kind of love that she writes love stories that seem to be just a tad unconventional, there is always one element that really sets her books apart. So I was excited about this book, even though it was the second book in the series and I haven’t read the first. Thankfully, this book can so be read as a standalone. So this book follows Jake and Aly, and both of them have some hard stuff in their pasts. They meet when the book opens and Jake is sitting in jail on Christmas because some guy was spouting off at the mouth at a bar, and Jake used his fists instead of his words. Thankfully it all worked out, and they started running in to each other around town. Jake was always attracted to Aly, and while sure, Aly thought Jake was hot, she was a lot more leery about getting involved with a past client, plus he had that whole kind of bad boy vibe and she wasn’t really sure she was ready for something like that. So Jake as a character was kind of sad, he carries so much guilt around with him that it literally impacts every aspect of his life. When he was a young boy, he was playing around and the end consequence was something horrible, he was just a boy, and clearly it was not his fault, but he […]
