Steph Sinclair
At this point in my reading career, I am utterly convinced that Kasie West writes books just for me. No one can dissuade me that she goes to her desk at the end of her day and says, "Now, what amazingly cute story can I write to make Steph Sinclair explode into a confetti parade of happiness?" The thing is, after reading a grand total of three of her books in one year, she has never failed me on this front. The humor is spot on, the characters are entirely lovable, and I know without a doubt whe ...more

My reaction upon discovering that there was a sequel to the brilliant Pivot Point:


The excitement is for the following reasons:
1. I have it on good authority that Untitled Pivot Point #2 is going to be amazing! After reading Pivot Point #1, I have a lot of well founded trust in Kasie West's abilities. And, you know...


2. Addie no longer 'desires' Duke, the annoying, cocky turd . So now she can focus on the important people *cough* Trevor *cough*.



3. Reading another story with my favourite c

Kasie West can officially do no wrong; I am absolutely certain of it at this point. She is also the reigning Queen of Intense Endings, Lovable Characters, Snark, and Plot Twists. This, I am also certain of. I was initially unsure that anything could come close to evoking the same love I had for Pivot Point, but I'm glad I can say, also with certainty, that Split Second came pretty damn close. And even having come close to evoking the love I had for Pivot Point, that's not to say I didn't love Sp ...more

Split Second is just another reason why Kasie West is one of my favourite authors. Along with her snarky writing, lovable characters and swoon inducing romance as well as an ass-kicking plot line, who can be disappointed?

Like Pivot Point, Split Second follows the point of view of Addie, but now with a new addition of Laila’s point of view. I was mainly worried about wanting to skim Laila’s POV since I was rooted on reading all the Addie and Trevor sc

HOLY CRAP. THAT COVER.
Aw, that's Laila. :'D

AND THERE'S A SYNOPSIS. THAT I DID NOT SEE. UNTIL NOW. OHMYGOD.


COME FASTER, FEBRUARY. YOU HAVE TO.

I NEED MY TREVOR.

Loved learning more about the Compound. The ending totally surprised me. I can't believe I didn't see that one coming. I still feel kind of bad for Duke even though he continues to make bad choices. I did miss getting to see two different choices unfold. Addie still does a search here and there. I would probably search everything if I were her. LOL

Kasie West does it again! Oh my god, guys, I am so happy. I want to dance around and throw confetti in the air, because obviously I've officially found my author soul mate. This is Kasie's third book, and just like the other two, it gets 5 stars from me. I mean, there's auto-buy authors, and then there's please-can-I-stalk-you-and-maybe-marry-you authors, and that's kind of what Kasie West is becoming to me. *cough* Okay. Calm down, Debby. Cool it.

OMG I <3 Kasie West forever and Trevor and Connor and Addie & Laila ... Just amazing.

I know you’re all dying to get your hands on this book… Pivot Point started as one of my favorite reads of the year, and 200plus books later it’s still at the top. I quickly realized how much love I had for Kasie West. I was so excited when I found out that there would be a book 2.

If you haven’t read Pivot Point, turn away. Now. My comments will probably spoil what happens because there is no way I can

There is a special place in my heart for those authors who can turn out quality book after quality book at a quick pace. Of course, I love the authors who write their beautiful novels slowly, but the Kasie Wests of the world, who can write two delightful, feels-inducing novels a year? They keep me in happy things to read, and I thank them for it. This is my third Kasie West book, and I feel like she can do no wrong with me. Split Second is every bit as fun, humorous and s

3.5 stars - Spoilers

Most YA books are all essentially the same old story with the same old boring speshul snowflake heroine plodding along in her snowflakey way and being all insufferable and boring. In a lot of ways Split Second was no different to the usual YA but for some reason all the cliches and tropes came together and worked for me. The story was entertaining and easy to immerse into, the characters (bar one or two) didn't make me want to pull my hair out, and the dual POV and intertwini

I guess it had to happen. My first rage-quit/annoyed review of 2014

*wipes away tear of emotion*

I actually did finish the book even though I skimmed a lot through the last 15%, but that’s what you get when an incredibly predictable plot twist arrives at a point when you already are feeling pretty much over the whole read.



The worst part though? I was genuinely excited for this sequel. I didn’t adore Pivot Point, the second half was a little disappointing and the ending well…the ending seemed cre

OMG PLEASE COME SOONER PLEASE COME SOONER PLEASE COME SOONER PLEASE COME SOONER PLEASE COME SOONER. I like to think I'm not a beggar when it comes to waiting for highly anticipated books, but I PHYSICALLY NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT FOR ADDIE & TREVOR. Like, YESTERDAY.

5 Reasons I Can’t Believe You’re Reading This When You Could Be Reading Split Second:

1. Trevor.

Trevor is amazing. He’s one of those all-around super-fantastic, incredibly nice guy book boyfriends (you know, the Levis and Hectors and Tuckers and have I mentioned how much I love this trend?) He’s kind of the best thing ever and should be enough to pick up the book right there.

OMG. This book is just what I need right now. Split Second was a perfect stress reliever. It was light and fun enough to take my mind off things. I loved Pivot Point and I'm so happy that this didn't disappoint! Ha! It rhymes!

Laaaaame. I know, sorry.

Anyway, I was surprised to see Laila having a POV in this book! I didn't know what to feel about it at first but seriously, she made this read even more entertaining! She's such a tough character on the outside but on the i

I can't even.. This book was perfect. I should have never doubted Kasi West when I found out this book is also told from Laila's POV. I love everyone: Addie, Trevor, Laila, and Connor.. Especially Connor <3. Just a perfect sequel and a perfect duology. Very unique and different and a very addicting read.

The first half was fabulous, the second one left me confused (too much convenience and I didn't actually buy the resolution). Anyways, a fun read with a lot of action and some interesting do-overs. :)

THE LOVE, LOVE, LOVE …

The characters are as great as before.

We get to see both Addie and Laila coping with what happened in the first book, we get to see their friendship shine through all that darkness. These two can not be any more different (and this goes also for their romances), but their frie

I borrowed an ARC of this title from my very good friend Sara. My thoughts are my own.

This review can also be found at The Starry-Eyed Revue.

And Kasie West does it again. It's now guaranteed that I will purchase a copy of every book she writes, even if I've already read a review copy. It's my desire and my dutyto support and promote such awesome authors. West just jam-packs her novels with imaginative storylines and humor and swoons and just everything that makes a book fun.

Love is like reading a good book series..
Sometimes, you thought to yourself, "Maybe it's better to have not love at all than to have loved and be hurt..."
and now after reading a good book and found that the next installment in the series would be released next year.. (oh, so far away)
I was thinking, "Maybe it's better if I have not read this at all because now I would be thinking "what would happen next in the book" all the time and I would not stop talking about this stuff in my head to my room

Here I was, finishing Pivot Point, thinking that it was one of the best standalone novels that I had ever read.

AND NOW I FIND OUT THERE'S A SEQUEL?!

Rating: 2.5 Stars

I read a little over half of Split Second before skipping to the end of the novel and remaining unsatisfied. For fans of Pivot Point, there is no doubt in my mind that Split Second is a sequel worth waiting for. For me, though? Not so much. Split Second picks up directly where Pivot Point leaves off, which is both a relief and a point against its favor. On one hand, the novel doesn’t suffer from a slow start the way its predecessor did but, at the same time, it relies a little t

The sequel of Pivot Point starts with a huge gap in Addie's memories , no boyfriend and a tense relationship with her BFF. However,a trip to Dallas proves that there is also some kind of magic in Norm world where she doesn't belong due to her special abilities.

The author expresses her concerns about writing a sequel in the last pages of the book ,she fears not being able to fulfil the readers expectations. Well, the novel rises to the challenge and some parts are even more entertaining that the

I'm so incredibly sad this series is over so soon. These characters are fantastic and memorable, you fall in love with them a little bit. Not to mention, I'm most upset I won't get to read about Trevor anymore. Trevor is awesome. Trevor is everything.

Just when you think you know where things are going, these books hit you with a surprise. Kasie West is a fantastic author, and I loved every minute of her world.

I'll tell you three things.

This book made me smile. It gave me warm fuzzies. It made me feel good.


Unlike Pivot Point which alternated chapters between Addie’s two possible futures, this book went back and forth between Addie’s and Laila’s POVs. When I realized this, I predicted one thing: that I’d be impatiently racing through Laila’s chapters to get to Addie’s. I really liked Laila in the first book, but c'mon, you get it right? If you’ve been highly anticipating this sequel like I have, I’m pr

Well guys, I'm happy to say that my author crush on Kasie West is still in full swing! Can this girl write anything that I don't love beyond words?! I think not. :)

I'm quite relieved that I saw Ashley @ Nose Graze mention on Goodreads that she needed a refresher on Pivot Point before starting Split Second, and then found Sara @ Forever 17 Books posted the awesome link to the Recaptains (awesome blog!!) recap of Pivot Point. I read the entire thing and was completely satisfied that I was refreshe

So good! I really liked this one, a great companion to Pivot Point. There may be spoilers below if you haven't read the first book.

Addison was just as likable this time around. She has such an interesting story. This book picks up after she chose her path at the end of the first book and it was interesting to see how things play out. For one thing, she has no memory of her relationship with Trevor. She pretty much has to start from scratch with him again. I liked that they still had great chemi

Kasie West has got it goin' on!

I wasn't expecting this to be as good as Pivot Point, but I definitely think it was, if not better. I thought dual narration would be tiresome, but it worked. I thought Laila would bore me as a narrator, but she definitely didn't. I thought there was no way this would match the first book. But it did.

Expectations? Defied.

Bring on the other Kasie West books! I'm definitely a fan.

I write YA. I eat Junior Mints. Sometimes I go crazy and do both at the same time. My novels, published through Harper Teen are: PIVOT POINT, its sequel SPLIT SECOND (Feb 2014), and THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US (a contemporary novel). I also have two more contemporaries, ON THE FENCE coming out July 1, 2014, and THE FILL-IN BOYFRIEND coming out the summer of 2015. My agent is the talented and funny Mic ...more
