The Upside of Letting Go by Nacole Stayton ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway






Book Description:


Haley Martin decides the only way to let go of her lingering nightmares is to literally move on. Taking a leap of faith she finds herself enrolling at a campus hundreds of miles away from home.


She leaves any thoughts of dating again in Jersey, that is until fate crosses her path with a blue-eyed stud named Kyler King. He is notoriously known for being emotionally unattainable, but his fa├žade is only to hide the burdens he bares every day.


As Kyler and Haley’s physical attraction becomes deeper, the secrets of the past threaten to surface. When Haley’s past collides with the present, will her secrets prove too big of an obstacle hindering their happily ever after, or will letting go be the key that locks their bond forever?


Review

This is one of those stories where I was instantly sucked in and felt the characters anguish and emotions as if I was living them....TULG is a heart wrenching, emotional, beautiful story about letting go of your past, starting over, and moving forward. 3.5 stars

Haley is running from her past, she heads off to a new college to start over and meets Kyler on her first day on campus. Of course, Kyler is the player on campus. Kyler has demons he's running from also and Haley tries to avoid him at all costs, but unfortunately its the one we try to avoid the we always seem drawn too. These two have more in common than they can ever know.  Haley and Kyler start a fast and furious relationship, two broken souls that complete each other but when the past and present collide the question is can their love survive it all?

This is Nacole's debut novel and I look forward to seeing her writing develop and reading more from her in the future.  I loved how I felt like I was living the character's lives. The Upside of Letting Go is a  wonderful story reminding you that even though tragedy strikes, you can write your own happily ever after.

  16. I have to admit that this story is very similar to a lot of books that have been coming out lately. That said, I usually enjoy reading them, so I'm looking forward to reading this one. I know the review said that character development was something that could be improved on. I was wondering what else was keeping it from being a 5 star book. Thank you for the review and the giveaway!
