MY REVIEW -
Hold on to your seats, because Blue Love is a one long rollercoaster ride.
Tessa Ross is a good girl who tries to fight off the discomfort she’s feeling with her growing body, the sudden attention boys were giving her and most especially, the growing attraction to the bad boy Lucas Links. He might be hot, popular, arrogant and a walking sex-on-sticks, but she would never be a notch on his post.
Lucas, on the other hand, may appear to have everything – car, popularity, clothes and women but deep inside, he was broken. His family is dysfunctional – his mother is an alcoholic and his absentee father tries to buy his love by giving him expensive things. Everything was just a game to him, especially when it comes to girls and sex – until Tessa Ross came into the picture. He knew then, that she was different. That he will try to make things work – just as when he thought he was good enough for her, his past came back with a vengeance.
This book is filled with twists and turns that had my jaws dropping every now and then. Here I thought everything would be okay, then another one would sprout. Most of them you would not see coming, and there were times when I wished that both of them be separated – because they needed to be away from each other! It’s heartbreaking to see them hurt, and make stupid decisions – then continuously repeat the cycle.
I didn’t expect it was THAT long, and it would end that way. My heart was aching uncontrollably somewhere in between, here are two people who are perfect for each other and yet circumstances, not of their doing, is driving them apart. It was painful to watch them let go, yet you can’t be help but be proud of the person that they become – because as the pages continues, and as the story goes, you will see the characters grow and develop.
There were great secondary characters that you have to meet as well – there’s Alex, Phoebe, Tommy and Jade. I even like Toby and Ben – and if I don’t just love bad boys who are off to being good, I would have wanted ANY of them to be with Tessa. After all that she had experienced with Lucas, she needed her own HEA, with or without him.
But I’m giving Lucas a chance…
Blue Love is an amazing coming of age story about two very different people, who have found love in each other, tried to hold on to it, but painfully allowed themselves to let go. But it doesn’t end here – so yes, you have to expect what the ending is. It might be something that will drive you nuts, but it’s something that will keep you looking forward for the next book in the series.

AUTHOR BIO -
I am a very new self published writer. I will tell you I have always had a very vivid imagination. Starting at age 3 (as it states in my Baby Book).
Sigma was my very first love (imaginary boyfriend). He lived about fifteen miles from my childhood home, (a farm). I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our families snowmobiles, (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring). Apparently he was very ill and "Thank God" I was able to take care of him.
Next was my very first self publishing gig. At eight my cousins and I (and yes I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members.
Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin as she was on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 (Kick ass cousin BTW) and very far away from home during a very scary time for our country, (protecting our butts).
Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I can do that, (meaning writing). I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped. I have two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Ten books in 13 months. CrAzY and wonderful.
I love love! ( I would love to reference Pinks new song here, however I am not sure if that would cause copyright issues.)I also tend to enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that just sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow.
I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend most the time. I run a small business out of my home and spend time reading and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets and friends and noise ninety percent of the time, and I would have it no other way.
I love people,music, laughter, hugs, and books.
