June would have done anything for Jake. The two were inseparable. He was going to run away to be with her. Then, his abusive father destroyed their happiness.
Years later, June sits down to write a ...more
Current is a second chance love story that has romance, steam, and even a good bit of mystery and suspense. I listened to the audio of this book and I found myself piddling around the house just to keep listening and find out what was going to happen next. A few of these twists were predictable, but there were a few that really shocked me! I enjoyed the element of surprise.
I always love a good second chance romance story. I especially love it when the two are childhood/high school ...more

The reason why I requested this is that synopsis, it grabs you straight away, BUT what I thought reading that was not what I thought was going to happen, which had me down the wrong path right from the beginning, and that's where all my confusion came into play..
The beginning of ...more
Reading that plot synopsis, you can't not help but be intrigued. I mean, several depictions come to mind in regards to the whole JakeXLucas mystery~~ are they the same guy? is there a twin? does he have amnesia? is he pretending not to know her? and so on. Basically, if it is the same guy, what is the deal? And if not, where is Jake? And who will she choose in the end?
I know, to some reading my review, I ...more
1. The writing is not good enough. There are too many editing mistakes. Also, 90% of the book is told by the heroine's point of view but in 2 chapters, where the hero is present but the heroine isn't, events are told by the writer. This was really weird. I have no idea why these chapters were not told by the hero but the writer. It didn't flow and it felt weird.
2. The blurb promises something, and we ...more
After reading the synopsis of this story I was looking forward to reading this. Thankfully the author didn't disappoint as I loved it and ended up reading it in one sitting.
This is one of them books that I find hard to review as I don't want to spoil the storyline for anyone. What I will say is if your looking for an emotional romantic read then I ...more
Current is the first book I have ready by Abby McCarthy and really enjoyed it.
Current is a story about second chance love – a love that truly never went away. A love that was ripped from each of them.
Abby writes an interesting plot and that’s what keeps you attached to the story and the characters. June is thrown some hefty curve balls in her life. Just when she things are going perfect for her again, it’s all torn away from her.
You can’t deny such a strong current between two people. ...more
I always am excited to read a book that takes place near me. I'm not sure if it's like that for everyone, but for me, it's a bit nostalgic. Some of the events, and places are so familiar that I could have been a character in this book. I'm proud to say the author, and I are from the same area, so I can attest that she hit the nail on the head, and not with just the scenery, but with the story as well. This was a quick read for me since I couldn't put it down. Current includes some of ...more
June is in college living the all-American dream of college life she's writing a piece for a paper and finds herself so drawn to the singer Luke. He looks familiar. She can't shake this feeling ...more
As it stands, I listened to this audio and it was perfection. The narrator is the perfect June. She's the perfect third person voice for Jake's scenes--despite it not being in his POV.
Well written, beautifully crafted, and a bit magical. Current will pull you in. Current will push you away. Current will keep you.
But comes the end of summer just like every summer romance lives are changed and with the current there changed ...more
I was so excited to receive this ARC, from the moment I read the synopsis I knew it would pull on my heart strings. It did not disappoint.
For the first time in a long time, I got lost in the story, the characters and did not put the book down once till I finished. A story of love lost and found and the struggles two people faced in the time they were apart.
At times raw, powerful, loving, funny and inspirational, Current is a story about what ...more
I admit being concerned as the story starts to take off that the heroine could not possible be that clueless. She is redeemed somewhat by always second guessing what is going on. I'd like to think, no matter how much time has passed, the person you gave your heart to would be recognizable to you. Deception is also not a good ...more
Current is the 4th book by Abby McCarthy. She has grown with ever single book. I swear she's getting better and better with each book. Abby has taken my heart and soul on one heck of a roller coaster ride with this book and I am still feeling the high!
This book is the perfect mix, it's a love story, well developed characters that will make you laugh, smile, cry and fall in love all over, oh yeah and a twist that will knock your socks off. And don't worry - there ...more
While reading this I was thinking this book was different than the other books I've read from Abby. Then I got to the plot twist. It was a great twist that I didn't see coming and it was all done in Abby's style, which I absolutely love. I really hope there will ...more
Current was recommended to me by a fellow book friend, so I thought I would give it a try. I'm always looking for new books and authors to try. I am so glad I did! It was something different than what's saturating the book world! That excites me to more than you can imagine!
While reading Current, I was rooting so hard for Jake and June to get their HEA. These poor characters were put through the ringer!
All in all this book was fantastic!
It was my first McCarthy book, but it wont be ...more
I'll admit that the blurb for this book instantly drew me in and I knew I had to read it. I have read book by Abby McCarthy before and really enjoyed them, so I was really excited to start Current. I could not put this book down, and the book definitely lived up to the blurb. This was such a great story, and it just reminded me of everything that I have loved about Abby's books in the past. It was well written and captivated me right from the ...more
This was such a beautiful story, about young love that gets torn apart by consequences. This is one heck of an emotional rollercoaster that will have you reaching for the tissues.

JODIE'S REVIEW 3.5 STARS
I don’t know how to explain this book or to put into words how I felt without spoiling certain twists. I love the way Abby attaches me to her characters and with this book she had me before I even started reading it. The synopsis got me right away and then as I started reading I could tell I was in for a ride with these characters. The beginning half of this book had me completely on pins and needles. I was in love with this couple, I felt everything for this couple, but ...more
Ms. McCarthy wrote a story about a second chance love story. This story covered the trials and tribulations of a young couple who fell in love and then lost each other over a tragedy. When they found each other again I was overjoyed. That is when Ms. McCarthy ripped my heart out and crushed it with a twist. Just when I was hoping there was a HEA coming she through ...more
I am speechless! In a really good and happy way. I love this author. One of the only authors that I will read MC books from. So when I saw that this book was not an MC story it totally jumped on it because if she can have me sit and read MC then this one would be even better! And yes omg! yes!
I started this book without reading what it was about. From page one to the end this book never let me down. It's well written, flows nicely and keeps you hooked. The main ...more
