With This Heart by R.S. Grey
With This Heart by R.S. Grey
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful NA, 6 Sep 2014
Iíve not read many New Adult novels, but the ones I have read, even the ones Iíve enjoyed, have had one or two aspects that didnít work for me. But I am stoked to say that With This Heart Iíve found a New Adult novel that I absolutely adored.

Iím not even sure how to start talking about this book because there are so many elements that I thought were fantastically done. But I think the best place to start is the characters.

Silas, the boy, has a family that doesnít speak to him because he is in… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Hooked...or, not., 6 Sep 2014
Hooked is a strange book Ė the synopsis hinted at a kind of epic romance and relationship between Thea and Will, and is one of the reasons why I picked it up in the first place. Coupled with the hook of teen pregnancy, I was ready to completely lose myself in it.

However, the relationship is totally devoid of any real romantic, or even other, kind of connection between Thea and Will. It felt really awkward Ė they meet, get together, Thea finds out she is pregnant and after deciding to keep the baby, they play at happy families. I also never felt like I really got to know the characters Ė they were pretty bland and unmemorable, apart from their bad points.

Will has very… Read more
