Product Description

Product Description

Believing that her only contentment was to watch the sun set, Amber Tamblin wanted desperately to escape her mundane existence. Then, she found bliss in the arms of Jeff Connelly. With his Caribbean blue eyes, silky blond curls and a smile to die for, Jeff captured her heart. She would have given her life for him. In fact, she did. And in the instant before death, Amber decided that life was worth living after all. But was it too late to change her mind?

This often humorous first-person narrative is intended for young adults who enjoy the thrill of living life on the edge. But parents of perplexing teens would also appreciate discovering what motivates them. Join Amber on her journey from pessimistic teen to perceptive adult who realizes, at the last possible moment, that living and merely existing are not one and the same.

More About the Author

Brianna Lee McKenzie was born in Corpus Christi, Texas where she spent most of her childhood summers listening to Grandma Ruby tell stories of her adventurous life. Having nomadic parents, she never lived in any particular town for very long. Making friends was difficult in this situation, causing her to, at a young age, retreat into her own little world where the characters that she created were her companions. As she grew, she developed her ability to mentally visualize vivid scenes which she revisited later when she learned to take pen into hand. As an adult, she submitted several examples of her work to publishers, but was disappointed by rejection after rejection. But with encouragement from family and friends, she took that giant leap toward self-publishing.

Brianna lives on a yacht on the Chesapeake Bay where she finds inspiration in the magnificent sunsets and the romantic gestures of her husband. Her ultimate goal is to make her family proud of her accomplishments. Selling books is just a blissful bi-product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but... 12 Jan 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought that this was a decent book. I really thought the author was over descriptive the first half of the book. I felt like she was using words to describe words. Almost like when you wrote a paper in school and you needed to make it longer so you just threw a bunch of words that worked but were really unnecessary. It made the first half very hard to get through. The second half of the book was great. I felt like there was a change in the writing. I felt like she used just enough description to keep me interested but not bored.
The story itself was great and kept me interested and excited to see how it played out.
3.0 out of 5 stars Descriptive writing... 6 Mar 2011
By CJ in CO - Published on Amazon.com

This was a diffucult book for me to read. As a parent of young adult children, I cringed every time Amber allowed herself to be swept into a situation. It seemed that she gave very little thought to the consequences of her actions, and just kind of "went with the flow", so to speak. At every turn the reader can see the danger that lurks behind the decisions she makes (or in some cases, doesn't make), but Amber continues to allow circumstances and acquaintances to guide her instead of taking responsibility and controlling her own destiny. She is a very intelligent girl, but she gives no thought to the direction of her life.

The writing was descriptive and enjoyable. There was one portion of the book which was written in the past perfect tense resulting in what I can only describe as an immense overuse of the word "had".

My rating for this book is 3 1/2 stars.
