I started and finished this book in 1 day. Even with being sick and drugged up I couldn’t put it down. Private North begins with August (Auggie) Stonefield getting ready for her Christmas vacation with her family. She is excited to have a “normal” holiday. Unfortunately, her mother has other plans and August finds herself signing up for an internship with her favorite professor, professor North.
The last thing on Auggie’s mind is starting a new relationship but things change.
Private North (Dalton) comes into the story at the very beginning yet we don’t know it yet. He is a town hero but he is full of pain emotionally, mentally and physically. He also holds a lot of regret and anger. He beats himself up for the events that took place while at war.
The chemistry between Auggie and Dalton was sizzling! She can’t help but feel a pull to him. She shows him kindness. She shows him that he is NOT broken but whole and beautiful. Dalton on the other hand is extremely attracted to Auggie and he had no problem saying what is on his mind however, he is afraid to get close should she decide to leave him he would fall back into the void.
It’s a touching story. Dalton’s character was to me realistic from the nightmares to the injury to the fear of being alone. There’s scheming going on behind the scenes with Ethan (youngest son) and the professor however, for me that wasn’t even a factor in this book.
Oh and the sex scenes…. “Tell me what to do.” I kissed his neck. “I want you to forget the pain, all of it,” I whispered. I pushed his long hair behind his ear. “I want you to feel only me, touching you, kissing you.” Oliver wrote them well! They did not overpower the story.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a quick yet satisfying read.
OHHH EMMM GEEE I have been dying to share my review of this book! WOW it was just so damn good.
Two strangers going through the motions of life but not really living. Cassandra’s parents who love her in an odd manner have bread her for nothing less than perfection. Jason had lived a hard life. He is young and selfless but sees pity in the eyes of those who surround him. Two complete opposites going through similar yet different situations, come together and an amazing love story blooms!
“The term ‘away’ comes in many forms and phrases. Get away, stay away, far away, go away, went away and move away but the term that best fits my situation…run away.”
We start off with Cassandra (Cassie) racing to meet up with her best friend Mel; hoping that she can help her find a resolution to a mistake she made. She’s lived a hard life, not because of money but because of her parents who are extremely hard on her and its been an emotional toll on her. On the drive she gets into a really bad car accident then fate steps in, in the form of a humbled good looking man named Jason. Talk about swoon! Jason (Jase) steps in to care for this woman he doesn’t know and when he looks into her eyes all he wants to do is protect her. With Cassie’s car a wreck and no where to go; Jason steps up and offers her shelter his home.
In a short period of time Cassie and Jase find a connection they can’t seem to ignore. They find themselves eager for the next day even going through personal battles.
“People become too reliant on having the world at their fingertips. Enjoying the moment and not knowing what’s going to come next, that’s the real deal, Cassie”
These battles or secrets they have are ones they are not ready to share. And when the circumstances of these secrets were shown to me I was like holly hell!!! I felt like I got slapped. Talk about a turn of events.
So many emotions…sadness, hope, longing, anger, fear, love and grief. All this wrapped up in a bundle of words that left me wanting MORE! B.A Wolfe has some major talent. I felt everything and I may have even teared up a bit! <- – this doesn’t happen!!!!
This story was basically about self discovery. Learning who you are, what you want in life, who you can trust and overall how to open your heart and love with everything you’ve got. The ending was extremely sad but leaves room for that HOPE I mentioned earlier.
I bet you’re wondering “WTH is she talking about? What type of review is this?” Well if you follow my blog you know I will not give you more than I’ve already said. I refused to spoil any book and this is a book you must read and experience everything first hand. This is a book you will devour in a very short time. This is a book that will leave you so torn you will need a few days before starting a new one. BUT it is also a book I think and hope you will LOVE!
Did I give the book the justice it deserved probably not but I hope I intreguied you enough to make you want to purchase this baby!
B.A. Wolfe, I would like to congratulate you on an amazing job on your debut novel. I will definitely be stalking you! ;)
