When Kyle Dayton was seventeen, he lost his heart to Addison Parks.

It was easy to do. After spending countless summers of boredom with his grandmother at Buhl Lake, Kyle’s world turned upside down the minute Addison appeared. She was unlike any girl he had ever met; she was confident, out-going, and honest. She was beautiful inside and out, and she accepted Kyle for who he

Gah!!! What a story!! From beginning to end, I was sucked into Kyle and Addison's beautiful love story. It was not an easy road but it was worth all the angst and heartbreak to get to the last page. Tears will be shed, though I can't decide if they're more happy or bittersweet tears. Probably both. I didn't want it to end. Kyle's voice was so perfect and strong and I loved being in his head the whole way through. I'm so glad I read it and got to experience their young love a

***ARC Given to Me for honest review***

We first meet Kyle, one of the main characters in Sara Mack' s New novel, Sparrow when he's 16 years old. He's visiting his Gram' s cottage on Buhl Lake. Kyle and his brother, Kevin go to Buhl Lake during their summers to help their Gram with chores. Summers at Buhl Lake have become boring for the two; now that they're teenagers, girls would be a pleasant distraction. Enter Kyle's "mystery girl" whom he notices while fishing one day. She's swimming next doo

I was thinking about rating it 5 stars but I think the last few chapters weren't really much necessary.

When I started reading the book I didn't thought I would like Sparrow so much. But as it continued I absolutely loved her. This story had many moments. The moments which makes you laugh, some makes you smile, some makes you cry. There were moments which let you thinking. When I was half way through I thought kyle should move on and I regret even thinking about it but it's not my mistake. It's s

I am conflicted with this book. I love Sara Mack's writing and her fun storyline but Sparrow I had a hard time connecting to the characters in this one.

The story is told in the POV of Kyle from the age of 16 to the current age of 25. Kyle spends every summer since he was a young child with his grandparents at the Lake. Every year it's just him and his brother but the summer he was 16 he met Addison. Her family just purchased a lake house and he falls in love at first sight. The two connect inst

ARC given for honest review. Kyle. Addison. Kyle. Sparrow. I loved this book!! From start to finish I was mesmerized by this story, the love between two people can always stand the test of time if it is TRUE LOVE. I don't like to give spoilers when I do reviews. But the merry-go-round my emotions went on had me having to put the book down at times and walk away. Thank you once again Sara Mack for pulling me right into this story and falling in love with the characters. ...more

I'm an author. I was in a writing funk. I couldn't wrap my mind around words, UNTIL this book. I found my inspiration through this book, my feelings of writing came back to me.

I loved this story. Second Chances do exist. Fate does exist. And Karma comes around every once in a while.

There were ups and downs, heartbreaks, angst, sadness, and I was rooting for them from the first word. Sometime's there's only one true love.

This book is truly amazing. For those of you who are familiar with Sara Mack’s Guardian trilogy this work is unlike her earlier books, Sparrow took a completely different direction. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I was completely blown away. It is incredibly difficult to write this review without giving too much of the story away. Sparrow is a standalone contemporary romance/new adult novel very different from the paranormal Guardian trilogy. However, this book displays Sara Mack’s mul ...more

How do you write a review without it giving anything away. This book by Sara Mack was great, and I would like to say thank you for thinking of me when you sent it out. I have read the other writings of hers and the way she tells the story gets you sucked right in and will not let you go. This book is no exception to that theory.

In this book we meet a teenager by the name of Kyle that spends his time during the summer with his Gram. Nothing exciting ever happens during these visits until the one

It's been a while since I've been unable to put a book down, but that was my experience with SPARROW.

I first opened it late one night, intending to read a page or two before going to bed. Two hours later I finally forced myself to stop and sleep!

Sara Mack has written a beautiful love story about interesting young people with whom I instantly connected. I read very little NA because melodrama and narcissism don't appeal to me (I have teenage daughters, so I get enough of that in real life), but

WOW, what a story!!! I must admit this is the first book I have read by this author, in fact, I had never heard of this author until she sent a message asking if I was interested in reading and reviewing Sparrow. The blurb sounded pretty good, but I really was not blown away by the blurb. HOWEVER, I started reading and could not put it down. I can honestly say by the end of the book I was BLOWN AWAY!!! The writing was flawless. The story was told in such a way that I literally felt every single ...more

I absolutely loved this book. It has been on my kindle forever, and I kept putting it off, because I ad so many ARC's and part of series to finish. Well that was a damn shame because this book was to good to have left unread all this time. LoL

I enjoyed all the characters, the story line, the writing, and the love that was given into this book.

Of course I think Kyle is Hot as hell, amazing, perfect, and so on and so on. He is what any woman would want to go home to.
Addison was also awesome, she w

This is the first book I have read by Sara Mack and I loved it, it was difficult to put down I just kept needing to know what would happen next.
Kyle and Addison meet one summer, after spending every waking minute together they both fall hard for each other, when the summer comes to an end they arrange to meet up back home 2 weeks later only when Kyle turns up on Addison's doorstep there is no one home. Addison and her family have just disappeared.
Fast forward 8 years and who should Kyle see but

I was hooked from the start! Young love never truly dies completely.although time passes and feelings change you always have that first true love one never forgets. Kyle learns first hand what life has in store for him even 8 years after his heart was shattered and he had moved on in life. A family tragedy brings him back to the first place he found true love, wrong place hmm maybe wrong girl nope never, but she's with the wrong guy. The fight begins to find the love they once shared.

This was my first Sara Mack book and I absolutely loved it!! Give me a second chance romance book without a cliffhanger and that is my all time favorite kind of book....and Sparrow was exactly that. This stand alone book had a great storyline with tons of twists and turns that had me hooked from the beginning. The characters had lots of chemistry and you actually seen them grow up right before your eyes. I would absolutely recommend this read.....you won't be disappointed!!! ...more

Sparrow is a stand alone romance novel by Sara Mack and it was absolutely wonderful from start to finish! I really needed a book like this to help restore my faith in love and fate. This one really pulls at you heartstrings, it is a story of lost love and heartbreak but it is also a story of second chances. If you ever had any doubts that young love could be true love than this book will change your mind, I've never read about a love as deep or real as the love between Kyle

This is a romance with a touch of mystery. This is a stand alone, and the story ends exactly as it should have, LOVE. I recommend this for adults, due to language and some scenes. This is a feel good book, a story that makes you want to hug your kindle. This shows that true love can always find its way. I loved how Kyle never gave up, he always kept Addison in his heart. I also admired how Addison loved Kyle enough she thought she was allowing him to live his own life. In the end both were where ...more
