Declan starts to see Alyssa in a different light and realises that his feelings run deeper than friendship. It turns out that Alyssa feels the same way even though they don't always see eye to eye.
They have different goals for the future. Declan is set on making a career on the race tracks whilst Alyssa just wants to go to college and have a "normal" life. Are they mature enough to come to a compromise or will they decide to stick to their own plans?
They have lots of ups and downs throughout this novella and to make matters worse, Declan's father is trying to live his dreams through his son. No pressure there then!
I really like Declan as he is not really that bad. He does his best to make Alyssa happy but somehow doesn't always succeed. Alyssa is lovable too but shows no interest when it comes to Declan's ambitions.
This is the first book which I have read by this author and it's truly captivating. It's about true friendship, first love, rivalry and all the angst of being a teenager. Making the right decision at that age is tough! Will either of them see each other's view points and make allowances?
The other thing is, as this is related in Declan's POV, it's difficult to gage what is really going through Alyssa's mind. It will be interesting to see where this goes next, especially after the way it ends. Intriguing indeed!
Just to clarify which, this book mostly concerns the ups and downs of the relationship between the main character and his first girlfriend.
His aspiration to be a racing driver is well written and an important part of his life, but forms a secondary part of the story.
The couple concerned have a bit of a fiery on-off relationship, which makes for a more interesting read than if they just got on well all the time, although it is clear that they suit one another.
There is some sex, but it is a natural part of the story rather than anything gratuitous.
The highs and lows of teenage life with its petty embarrasments are well realised here.
This is the first of a series, so future instalments will show whether racing becomes a bigger element of the books, but in any case, if you enjoy this book, you will want to read more to find out what happens next between the couple.
When his feelings for his best friend Alyssa finally move from mates to something more, or as more as you are going to get for a pair of 15year olds, the path of young love was never going to run smooth!
Like typical teenagers they changed their relationship status like most of us change socks but they always gravitated back to each other – but with the huge step into responsibility and their futures looming over them they were faced with the fact that potentially they were heading in different directions.
Alyssa was determined to go to university but further education held no desire for Declan his heart lay with his beloved motorsport and when an opportunity to race for his hero’s team opens up for him, the choice for him was never in doubt but what did that mean for his relationship with Alyssa?
The story was one that shows just how much it takes to follow your dream, the determination and confidence it takes to stand up for what you know in your heart to be right for you.
Declan was a single minded young man but one that didn’t hide the way he felt, not about his racing, his plans for the future or about the way he felt for Alyssa. Alyssa on the other hand was no shrinking violet, she too had a future planned out in her head that she was not ready to deviate from
But this was really life for them, this wasn’t a world where they could have it all, they had decisions that they had to make and circumstances that would shape their futures.Read more ›
Declan & Alyssa's on again, off again relationship, is like a rollercoster ride, but I could imagine with all the teenage hormones rearing things would be more emotional than normal. I found Declan's complete enthrallment with Alyssa through those troubling teen years to be fun to read, bringing back my own teenage years. But also Declan's dream is forever in the forefront of his mind, always trying to convince Alyssa that his dream can come true & he doesn't need anything to fall back on. Whereas Allyssa was the type of female lead you could definitely learn to love, but really teenage yearsare never fun for anyone, so she wasn't able to do any justice there. Don't get me wrong at times I did love her, I also loved Declan's character at times too, but at other times... I just wanted to smack their heads together.
Michelle has written an AMAZINGLY TANTALISING start to her new series "Declan Reede: The Untold Story" (HOW did Michelle get inside a teenage boys mind so well??)... I can't wait to read what happens next for Declan, I also HOPE Alyssa comes back, especially with the ending I just read (doesn't make me like Declan to much)... aaarrrggghh I have a love/hate relationship I think with Declan.
