I freaking loved it!!! Please let there be a third book and let it be jake's story.
A. Bookzilla.
If you liked the first book, Derailed, you will like this too. It's another predictable, but feelgood romance, that leaves you pretty satisfied with the ending.

I loved Becca and I already loved Gavin, but their relationship just felt somehow forced at times. I actually thought she had a lot more chemistry with Jake than Gavin. But I knew this wasn't their story so I gave up on that. I did end up liking them, they were obviously a great fit. Sex is not ignored, but like with the first book - it's
Possibly reading this in another time and place, I might have given it a three, but just needing something to get me through some travel time, this was a good choice for me. Was it anything mind-blowingly original? No. Was it amazingly written? No. But for what it was, it was good and it kept me entertained.

Originally from Boston and in law school to become a DA, Becca decides to spend her summer with her best friend Molly in NC working at a small town law firm. She immediately runs into local

I get it!

I finally get why Gavin was included in Derailed and while I didn’t care for him in that story I absolutely love him in Veer. Alyssa Rose Ivy is the best. I’m not sure why I expected any different because I absolutely love her style of writing. I can literally finish her books in a couple of hours because I can’t put them down!

Becca, Molly’s friend from college from Derailed comes to Clayton Falls to get away from a life that’s sort of crumbling down around her and she needs a break

Veer is the story of Becca, Molly's best friend in Boston. She runs away to Clayton Falls after a year of heartache from the death of her mother, disappointment from the D.A office in Boston, and loneliness. Gavin is the man who's dreams were crushed after a career ending injury left him unable to play the sport he loved most, baseball. Now, living in Clayton Falls for the past three years, he's a local cop looking to settle down, but bumping into Becca was the last thing on his mind. When the t ...more
This new adult contemporary romance is the second book in The Clayton Falls Series. I really loved Derailed, the first book in the series and couldn't wait to read Veer. We were introduced to the main characters in this story, Becca and Gavin in Derailed. Becca is Molly's best friend from Law School in Boston. Gavin is the hot cop that had a thing for Molly in Derailed, but Molly's heart totally belonged to Ben. Though Gavin displayed some really thoughtful moments in Derailed, I really thought ...more

It took me some time to work myself up to read VEER. I wasn't absolutely crazy about DERAILED (book 1 of the series) but I was dying to know what happens with Gavin and Becca. Every time I would pass by it on my nook I knew I just needed to dive in and read the darn thing. But I was scared. There I said it. I was scared the book and me wouldn't connect. But we did and I was so happy I finally decided to read it.

I will be the first to say that I did not like Gavin one bit in DERAILED. I thought
I'm not exactly sure why I picked this up especially considering my less than lukewarm reaction to its predecessor, DERAILED. Like that one, this is a standard romance. First take a girl in dire need of a break and heading on out to do something about it. Second have said girl then meets boy in a less than ideal situation. Try to shake things up a bit with a not quite love at first sight. Then have them both deny deny deny what they truly feel. Here though there's a dash of meanness on both thei ...more

If you enjoyed Derailed, the first novel in Alyssa Rose Ivy’s Clayton Falls Series, then you will fall in love with Veer! Told from the alternating POV’s of Gavin (the sexy cop we met in Derailed) and Becca (Molly’s best friend from law school), Veer is the perfect blend of romance and heartbreak. I found myself thoroughly engrossed in Becca’s side of the story. She was a very authentic character to me.

This is one of those stories where the author does a fantastic job of peeling back the layers
Melanie Genanatti
This book was totally cute fun and romantic! Gavin and becca what a perfect match! The ending was super cute, and i loved the way that we got a different side of jake in this book. I might of just found a new favorite character from this series.

Alyssa I really love love love your stories. Please keep writing, and hurry up with your other two books! I can't hardly wait any longer!
If you thought Molly and Ben's story was amazing, seriously Gavin and Becca's tops it. This book made my heart stop in places for fear that what I wanted to happen wouldn't. A fantastic addition to Clayton Falls. I'm so excited about this book! It was SOOOOO good. Go Alyssa Rose Ivy!! Plus I totally get that cover now! ;)

This is a super easy and quick read. It has a romance-focused storyline with little substance. Most Alyssa Rose Ivy books are.
I found the beginning a bit boring but eventually settled in nicely. There are some major awkies throughout the book that are sooo cringe-worthy. And I don't think that was the author's intent. Just saying, some "sweet" moments were not working for me. At all.
I enjoyed Becca's relationship with the troublesome Jake. She's all alone in the world and having him as

Background: Becca is Molly's friend from law school, and she is having a rough time this summer, her mother recently passed away and her position at the DA's office was not awarded again. So she is on her way to Clayton Falls to visit Molly and work at a small office in town for the summer.

Review: I am now a fan of Alyssa Rose Ivy, she is so talented. I really enjoyed this book as a follow up to Derailed. Same set of characters but the book was from another one's experiences and I really enjoye

In 'Veer', the second novel in a new adult contemporary romance series, Becca's life is in ruins after the death of her mother and barely making it through law school. Needing someplace to go to clear her head and take a break, Becca goes to a small town in North Carolina. While there, Becca finds herself repeatedly butting heads with a local cop named Gavin. Despite both their efforts, the attraction between them is impossible to ignore and may be just the thing they both need.

This novel is a r

Alright, as you well know, this cover is HOT! She is all....take me, Gavin. And he is all... muah! lol. O.o It just draws you in. okay, now that I am through with that.

I love how this book has alternating viewpoints. In derailed, we did not get to know Ben as much as we get to know Gavin in Veer. I feel like the alternating viewpoints gave the characters more depth. Speaking of depth of characters, I love how Molly was still a part of this story and we can see how she has become a more vibrant

I really enjoyed Derailed, the first book in this series, but I honestly couldn't stand Gavin. When I heard this was his book, I was intrigued, but also a bit nervous going into it. I really wanted to know more about Becca though, and I was hoping that Gavin could redeem himself in my eyes. It took a while, but he totally did. And I loved Becca. The characters are my favorite part of this series. Not just the ones that the book focuses on, but all of the secondary characters too. Alyssa Rose Ivy ...more


The second book in the Clayton Falls series follows Becca and Gavin who are friends of Molly, the main character in the first book. It is a companion novel so there won't be spoilers but reading Derailed first will increase the reading experience. :-D Becca is headed to Clayton Falls to visit Molly and work at a local law firm. On her way into town her car breaks down and police man Gavin stops to help her. Gavin isn't so hot for city girls and

I love romance. I love it. It makes me so happy and I absolutely love reading it. However, when I say that I love romance, I also should mention that I don't expect great things from it. So when I had the chance to read Veer by Alyssa Rose Ivy I was pretty excited. Initially I thought Veer was just your typical adult romance novel. However, I later discovered that it fell into the new adult category. I was a bit shy of this at first because I have had fairly bad experiences with the new adult Ph ...more
It was so nice to go back to Clayton Falls and “see” all of Alyssa’s characters again. Veer tells the story of Gavin, who was trying to date Molly in Derailed, and Becca, Molly’s friend from law school who has a pretty dark and troubled past. While not as romantic and “fairy tale-like” as Derailed where the girl rediscovers the love she left behind, Gavin & Becca’s story was more realistic to me and I loved that about Veer. You can’t deny the attraction these to have for each other, yet they ...more

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

An Overview of the Novel: Becca has just finished a tough year. Her mother had died and of course when her friend Molly dropped out of law school it didn't help the cause.

She needs a break from Boston, so when Molly suggests she head to North Carolina for the summer, she jumps at the chance. But things don't go exactly as she planned. First, her car breaks down and then meets a cop named Gavin, who seemingly wants nothing to do with her.

But Gavin has wounds in his pas

Original review at Gabic Reads Review copy received from author.

In Veer, Becca, Molly's (from Derailed) best friend from Boston, is coming to Clayton Falls. When her car breaks down, Gavin shows up to save the day. And then ends up being a total jerk and remains that way for the first half of the book.

I hated Gavin for awhile at the beginning of the story. He was interested in Becca, yet he was always being rude. I can kind of see why he was, but not really. And then he does the ultimate: he sle
Veer is the second book in the Clayton Falls Series and it is the only book that I have read in the series, which I found easy to read as a standalone. It was an emotional contemporary romance where both characters need to deal with their insecurities so that they can move on and improve their lives.

Becca’s car broke down on the side of the road as she is heading to Clayton Falls to spend time with her friend Molly and to start a summer job at a law firm until college begins again. Gavin stops t
I was originally going to do this series as a Blog Tour except I didn't receive Veer in time, so instead I did a Derailed only Blog Tour. You can find it HERE. Now the author sent me Veer, I'm going to review it!! ;D

Okay. Definitely a romance book. Gotta read it! Plus, I loved the romance in Derailed! But I wasn't so sure about reading about Gavin since I didn't really like him in Derailed.

Veer is a delightful addition to the Clayton Falls series by Alyssa Rose Ivy. There are many familiar faces from Derailed, but with a new love story to discover. Veer is Becca and Gain’s story. Becca comes to visit Molly and work in Clayton Falls for the summer. What she does not expect is Gavin. Gavin on the other hand does not want to get involved with or having feelings for someone who is only going to leave at the end of the summer.

Veer is told from both Becca and Gavin’s points of view. Th

I really enjoyed Derailed, the first book in the Clayton Falls series so I was really excited to read Veer. And honestly, I loved this book even more then the first!

I was so happy that Gavin and Becca got their own story. I really liked them in the first book and even though I didn't imagine them together when I read the first book they really are great together. There's a lot more to both characters then I originally thought so it was really great getting to know them better.
