Title: Hit the Wall (Blythe College #2)
Author: Rochelle Paige
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 10, 2014
Jackson just missed his chance on the person he thought he had loved for a while. It hurt him, but he wanted her happy. After all, she was one of his closest friends. What he didn’t realize, that he could feel a stronger, more powerful emotion than what he felt for Lex.
When I say that when you meet the RIGHT ONE, you will know beyond a shadow of a doubt. And I don’t think you’re the type of guy who would spend a couple of years messing around with girls when she’s right there in front of you.
Much as I enjoy Lex & Drake’s story, I wanted an HEA for Jackson as well. After all, he’s a great guy who knows how to look after his friends despite the fact that he sleeps around, and shags every girl he encounters. He tells that he needed to sow his wild oats before finally settling down, only that the girl he was waiting for already found someone else before he put a break on his sleeping-around-marathon.
He met Kaylie unexpectedly – I like her character. She wasn’t a complicated person, neither she was over emotional. This girl may have suffered a deep sense of loss when she lost people close to her at a young age, and she had no room for love as of now. She needed to focus on one thing only: DANCE. Unlike some, she wanted to dance right out of college. It wasn’t just a hobby for her, it was her passion. Everything in her life was orderly, until she came face to face with Jackson.
The pull was instant, and unlike before, Jackson didn’t feel like waiting. He wanted to claim her, but he was patient enough to wait until she was ready to sleep with him – pretty much an effort for a guy who gets an invite to bed by every girl he approaches. But, he knew he needed to have her, needed to consume her, and needed to be with her. So imagine my surprise when he started to woo her. Not really the conventional type of woo – he invites her to date (which was really way out of his norms), and spends his time with her.
But Kaylie has walls surrounding her heart, and she had some fear of what exactly to do right after graduation. She was sure of what her direction in life would be, until him. Now, how can she tell him of her plans?
A guy who just had his heart broken, and a girl who had her heart in between tall walls, would there ever be a future between them?
I like this novel because it was (for me) a light read, it didn’t take soooo much drama, but still it had piqued my interest. At first, I was like – how can he possibly forget about Lex in a matter of time, and just went straight into Kaylie – well, I’m glad Rochelle Paige handled the transition well and gave a rationalization that seemed plausible. I like how the story went, I loved the characters, and most especially, I love his kink. OMG. He’s totally hotter in bed than Drake – I can’t believe it! Totally! Well, I was quite expecting quite a big drama at the ending, something with a big blast to end everything up, it didn’t happen – instead I was rewarded with a mellow, heartwarming and feel-good that filled me with content. Can’t wait for the next one in this series!

I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.
I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.
When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"
