Okay where to start with this review because man oh man Ann knows how to rip a heart right out and put it back together. To say that I was sitting at the edge of my chair screaming at the book and yelling at certain characters is such an understatement. I have to say that love is the craziest thing ever. When you love someone you love hard and no matter what happens to that person you need them and they need you. They are your drug.

Aly and Jake have gone to hell and back and have come out bruise
After finishing First Kiss last night I just had to continue with the series. So I moved on to Fever Pitch, a novella.

Spoilers for First Kiss will happen here.

Aly has just turned 18! Whaaat?! That was a quick three years. Where did the time go? Well, anyway, Aly and Jake kept in touch for those years and has now decided to go and visit him in London. Her parents can't really say no because she's 18 so she hops on a plane to visit her first love.

The test here is to see if things are still the s

Read Book 1 before you read this novella. You need to know what happened to the characters before you read this review.

I read the first book in this series, First Kiss (Heavy Influence #1) about 4 months ago that I stumbled upon when it was free, and I loved it. In book 1 we meet Jake Masterson 17 year old up and coming lead singer for a rock band and Alyssa Montgomery younger girl next door. The relationship they started brought about a lot of problems, but they loved each oth

In Fever Pitch, Aly is about to graduate from high school, and Jake is in London pursuing his music career. They've continued their relationship online, and Aly makes arrangements on her own to go visit him for her 18th birthday. She's ready to give him something, and you can probably guess just what that is.

Even though their reunion is sweet, from the start it is clear that Jake is not being completely truthful with Aly, and she knows it. But when he makes a big gesture and they take their rela

What SKID OUT did for FIRST KISS, FEVER PITCH will do for the next book in the series, BROKEN NOTES. It will be the perfect lead in to that book and it most definitely has me anticipating what is to come.

I didn't want to think about these two moving on, but unfortunately they did. While both maintained contact for the past 3 years, both found themselves in other relationships. I wanted to think that they were stronger than that, that they would wait for one another. But time apart opened their

I loved First Kiss and was anxious to read more of Jake and Aly's story. In Fever Pitch three years has passed and they have maintained their relationship online. Jake has continued to pursue his dream of making music but it has taken him to London most of the time while Aly remained home to finish high school. The story gets even more interesting now that both are adults. The story is painful to me at times because both characters have moved on in relationships with other people as they continu ...more

Great teaser.... I am sooo excited for Broken notes.. book 2
I enjoyed learning there are still strong feelings for Jake and Alyssa.. but since the distance and the lifestyle differences, there have been changes that were enforceable.. especially for Alyssa... I think she had the most shocking experience and a lot to think about for her future and what it holds for her..
stay with Jake and hope he comes fully back to her, or move on with her life with college and if there path crosses some day..

Another amazing novella to continue the story of Jake and Aly. OMG I just adore these characters.
This time Aly is visiting Jake in London right before she is set to start college. The way these two interact and the love that they share is so beautifully mastered, I am still WANTING MORE!!! Can you tell I am a HUGE fan of this story? Well I am.

A can't be missed kind of series. You simply must experience these books for yourself.

Wow. This book is an emotional roller coaster and I can not wait for the next book!! I sure hope Jake is honest with Aly and breaks up with his girlfriend. Then I wonder why Aly and Jake are with other people...when they are supposedly so madly in love with each other. I don't think the next book can be released fast enough! This book leaves you on the edge of your seat!

Dear Jack sometimes I really really want to knee you in the balls or hit you on your head with a frying pan.

Fever Pitch (Heavy Influence Book 1.5) by Ann Marie Frohoff is the second book in the Heavy Influence series. This story is about two people fighting to be together against all odds. This story is compassion and first love feeling. This story will show you that you can never tell what might happen with your first love.

Alyssa Montgomery is a high school senior about to turn eighteen. After her break up with him she was crushed. But when they started talking again, the old feelings started to come

Fever Pitch is a novella #1.5 of the Heavy Influence Series by Ann Marie Frohoff. This is the next chapter in Alyssa and Jake’s on/off relationship. I really enjoyed this book as much if not more than First Kiss. I highly recommend that you read this series in order because all of the books are great and you will have a better back story of what is going on. I actually read Higher Octave first and I just had to start at the beginning of the series. I en

Fever Pitch starts with Jake living in New York, living his dream and missing his Aly. Aly is turning eighteen and decides she wants Jake for her birthday. She plans a trip to London to surprise his on his tour. After three long years apart and their devastating breakup will their reunion be everything that Aly hoped it would be?

The storyline in this series just keeps getting better and better!

Alyssa is just about the turn 18 years old and has decided that she's going to visit Jake for the first time in three years in London. She's been in touch with him via Skype and email without any of her friends or parents knowing.

Jake was her first love and she needs to know if this relationship is going to work. This novella was the perfect stepping stone in the series to keep you hooked. I loved the surprises that came up and i

Aly is thrown into a life she doesn't know how to navigate. Jake's life isn't for the soft hearted and Aly doesn't know how to work it. I felt bad for her. She wasn't taken care of at all. Jake was horrible in this one. I was hoping he would improve.

I forgot how much I've missed Aly and Jake since I first met them this past summer.

This novella skips ahead to Aly's senior year in school. Which is 3 years after book 1 takes place. Because let's face it, nothing would really happen between the two of them until Aly is an adult.

If you're looking for more character growth, don't get your hopes up. Don't get me wrong, there is some compared to book 1. It's just more on Aly than Jake though, and because of that, we almost see glimpses of 14 year o

This book picks up 3 years after everything that happened between Jake and Aly. So if you haven't read the other please stop and do so now. It won't make sense otherwise.
Just another warning Ann Marie Frohoff leaves you at such emotional cliffhangers. I just want to throw my kindle.

Jake and Aly never really stopped talking. Just to everyone else they did. But after 3 years of virtual communication Aly decides she wants Jake for her birthday. With her surprise to everyone including Jake a succe

The story of Alycat and Jake continues in Fever Pitch, a novella in the Heavy Influence series by Ann Marie Frohoff. This is number 1.5 in the series, so I do encourage reading Skid Out and First Kiss beforehand. Fever Pitch is told from Allyssa’s point of view and just like always, Frohoff has a way of taking you back to your first love and the distance you’ll go for them.

Three years have passed and Allyssa is no longer the little girl next door. She’s on the verge of turning 18 a

This book bridges the gap from the last in the series and hopefully it is setting us up for the conclusion of Aly and Jake’s story. As I loved seeing each of their insights about the past I was hoping to get more of what the future may hold….we are still left in limbo...I'm just greedy and want more of their story.

Aly has had eyes for Jake all her life. She knew when she turned eighteen she could be with Jake without her parents standing in the way. They h

Ann Marie Frohoff has written a relationship, no, a whole series so far, with astronomical turmoil! The Heavy Influence series starts with Skid Out, a novella, and First Kiss. Both stories are a must read to truly understand the heartache and turmoil these two go through. Well at least Alyssa does. I’m still not sure about Jake.

Jake comes across as a cad, jerk, player, during this story. He doesn’t want to deal with any situation that is unpleasant to him. I get that, but when it is affecting t

“Fever Pitch” is the next novella in the Heavy Influence series by Ann Marie Frohoff. This book is not a standalone and you really need to read the first book and novellas to know what has been leading up to this moment. Alyssa has been waiting years to finally be old enough to see Jake again. Jake has been touring in Europe with his band that is now very popular and Jake is actually a rock star. Since Alyssa’s parents didn’t want her seeing Jake again, she has had to wait until she is eighteen ...more

Jake and Alyssa have been keeping in touch through the internet while he is on tour of Europe and their love has not waned or faded. Alyssa has decided all she wants for her 18th birthday is Jake.

“Fever Pitch” written by Ann Marie Frohoff is a novella with an interesting title! I also thought the cover was different than most romance books. It is a story that takes place several years after the first novella with the same characters. The main characters of this crazy love story are Alyssa and Jake! Jake is a sexy rock star that has history with Alyssa who is goal orientated and beautiful!

I think the story is intense! The emotions flying through this book are like being on a crazy roller

Fever Pitch by Ann Marie Frohoff is a novella and is the third book in the Heavy Influence series. It cannot be read as a standalone book. We see the story of Alyssa and Jake continue in this story and I admit at the end of the last book I was struggling with Jake’s character and his choices! I think what I’m beginning to like about this series is that it isn’t your typical ‘fall in love with a rock band member and live happily ever after’ storyline. I really could imagine this happ
