I so enjoyed this wonderful story about Heather and her first year at college. Poor Heather had a hard time dealing with everything to do within herself. Her dress sense she despatch needed her friend Marrisa her help. And also about dating. After being hurt by others before college she felt she just couldn't stand up for herself. This book was great as it showed Heather being able to make decision and changes for the best.

In the mood for a sweet realistic love story that is based on the music of Taylor Swift? This is it! A sweet romantic novel that follows the pretty much in-the-box life of Heather, a first year college student hoping to escape the confines of home life with bickering parents. Heading to live on her own for the first time ever in the college dorms, she finds that life is full of unexpected surprises. Heather meets her vibrant roommate Marissa, who is her polar opposite and helps Heather break out ...more

4 out of 5 stars

Let me start with I read this book in a day because I couldn’t hardly put it down. I read while I fixed my kids dinner and helped with their homework. I was up till way too early the next day finishing it. It’s a wonderful coming of age kind of story that takes the reader on an emotional journey where the heroine finds herself while a freshman in college.

Heather is a naive young girl who has only had one relationship and that was four years ago. She is ready to spread her wings,

My favorite type of books are based around College so this book was right up my alley. I'm giving the books a 3.5 Star Review.

The one common themes I noticed in this book is Taylor Swift. I never read a book with so much Taylor Swift. Every time I read her name I thought of Jenn. Lol

Other than that this is the classic YA story. Shy girl, cute outgoing boy, and it has its funny moments. I liked all the characters especially the roommate Marissa. Now she should have her own book. Though I found yo

I purchased this book without knowing anything about it because the cover appealed to me. (The grey one.) I had recently finished reading You by Caroline Kepnes, so for some reason I thought this book might be similar. (Deranged person obsesses over someone after one date--something like that.) Turns out, this book is a young adult novel about a young woman and the new relationships she develops during her first year in college. She makes some really nice girlfriends, but runs into some trouble ...more

I promise you, I am NOT a sexist! But, it was almost impossible to believe this book - filled with the angst of a lovely young woman - was written by a man!! Kudos!!! This was a beautiful story with very believable characters - I felt their insecurities and their fears as they struggled with college, new friends, betrayals, and romance.

Okay

Everytime I expected to happen nothing did...maybe I'm just used to books like that....really wasn't liking the book.....recommend this book for younger readers perhaps.

A sweet story of young girl finding herself in college. A very shy, cautious girl finally growing out of her shell, finding love and very good friends.

I received this book for an honest review through Obsessive Pimpettes. It's a refreshing story of a very cautious, innocent girl starting college. Heather guards her heart carefully, and is very shy. Her outgoing, fun loving roommate, Marissa, slowly pulls Heather out of her shell, and shows her the fun of going to college. Heather discovers the emotional ups and downs of life, and wonders if she'll ever find true love. This story is well written and Scott Prussing has won me over! I look forwar ...more

I got this book from the author to thank me for being a supporter of his Blue Fire Saga.

Mine: A Love Story is very well written in the same style I love so much in the Blue Fire Saga. It's the story of Heather and her first year of Uni, a story of friendship, romance, heartbreak.

The only reason I'm not giving this story 5 stars is because I had a constant feeling of deja-vu... a lot of the scenes seemed to come straight out of Breathless, the 1st Blue Fire Saga book.

I recomend this book to the fullest! I never thought I could enjoy a love story with out the paranormal background. Scott has opened my eyes to a whole new world. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and you won't want to stop reading until you reach the final page!! No spoilers :)

I absolutely loved Heather. It was very well written. I think Scott got the heart of a girl I felt like I fell in love for the 1st time and it was my heart breaking. I love seeing Heather grow from the shy high school girl into a shy college student and blossom with her friends help and love. :)
