No no no no no just Noooooooo !!!

i don't want anyone to feel bad about having a different opinion , what i think of this book is based on my own understanding of the plot and i have so much to say about it so i'm just gonna let it out my chest.... If this book is a love story it fucking sucks , the first half of the story is about "Ari" and "Parker" they are cute couple, she loves him and he loves her too , they had plans you know traveling across the world

Aria can’t face what has happened to the love of her life, Parker. She heads on an adventure abroad that she and Parker had always dreamed of. She also struggles with living in her brother’s shadow and what dreams were actually her own before she tried to live his out. While on her vacation/runaway she falls for another guy named Chase Porter, a photographer who says and does all the right things.

5+ stars!!!

This was my first time reading Ava Harrison and I can promise you it will not be my last. She sucked me in with her writing and the story told was a beautiful coming of age, finding and forgiving yourself, accepting love and one hell of an adventure.

Ava's writing is a step above the norm. She is so descriptive of the surroundings that it truly makes you feel as if you are there. I walked the streets of Italy, I sailed from port to port, I smelled the sunflowers, I drank the champagn

Oh my. Well this book was 100% unexpected – in the best of ways!

This was my first experience reading Ava Harrison and when I was offered a chance to read to review, I read the blurb, checked out the cover and said YES!

Through Her Eyes is told in three parts; Inhale, Exhale and Breathe and these segments fit the story perfectly. We slowly get to know Aria as she takes herself on a journey of self-discovery after making a choice that changed her life forever. Running away was the easy part – find
I found this book very beautiful but it isn't exactly a love story. It's about regret, finding yourself, overcome your weaknesses and go beyond your comfort zone. It's about to stop being afraid and start living.

About the plot: Aria thinks of herself as a toxic girl. Her brother Owen died when they were kids. She blames herself for it. Her relationship with her parents also isn't the best. Her mother had always seen only Owen and he was the pride and joy of her parents. The person who helped her

A very sweet book.

This book was not my typical read. I’m a girl who likes grit and dark, but I surprisingly really liked this read. Aria is on a journey. A journey to find herself and Chase will help her do that. That’s about all I can say without giving everything away but if you like a love story that will touch your heart, this is a book for you.

I tend to rate a book that I really liked at 4 stars. What boosts it up to a 5 star read for me is if I feel as if everyone around me needs to be experiencing it too. That was this book.

I have never been in Aria's shoes. I have not dealt with her mistakes and difficult love-related decisions. I have, however, dealt with loss. She still grieved over the loss of her older brother, and I know the long term effects of a loss of that magnitude. She also struggles with depression, not just due to a c

Inhale. Exhale. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale. Breathe in this fresh raw, poignant, gripping and breathtaking read Through Her Eyes by Ava Harrison.


In this compelling and emotionally raw story, Ava Harrison takes her readers on a journey of self discovery. She has stripped down her readers to feel the vulnerability, the sadness, the fears, the loss, the happiness, the love, and the hope. With a wide array of emotions, readers are swept up and c

This 288 pages book feels more like 400 pages.

A whole chunk of it is about Aria exploring Europe with his new "boyfriend". If you are going to drag the whole thing out with this road trip then might as well throw in a plot twist or two. A bunch of useless description and characters messing around

Cool cover. That’s about it if I’m being honest

Four weeks. It took these people four weeks to fall madly in love with each other. Like, “I’ll die without you love”. Now, there’s nothing wrong with that. I’m not one to judge. But the author didn’t even make it believable. There was nothing that connected me to the characters and made their “love” believable to me.

My biggest peeve about this book was the dialogue. The characters spoke immaturely and very boringly to each other. Childish, that’s

Yeah...DNF at 12% because...I just didn't care about Aria. Like at all. She seemed to be a whiny mess. Wah wah Parker loves me but I can't love him (for some reason idk) and then she uses her parents money to go on a trip that she and Parker had planned together to 'find herself'. I only made it through her London experience because MY GOD she is unlikable. I LOVE London, and yet, I barely made it through her wandering around because a) she mopes and is SO melodramatic about everything b) She dr ...more
Aria is lost, she wants to be found. She has had two people in her life that believed in her, but circumstances tore them apart. After another jolt leaves her to a journey of self-exploration, Aria finds herself heading on a trip that will change her life forever.

Aria meets Chase Porter, a photographer who has Aria seeing life on a different level. Guilt eats at Aria, but she also sees her time with Chase as taking a much needed step into her future. However both have secrets that could ultimate

Wow...what a journey! I literally had to take a deep breath when I finished this...and honestly, I didn't want it to end.

You can tell from the first pages that you don't know the whole story. There is something simmering in the background of this adventure around the world that I just couldn't quite pinpoint. I LOVE that I was blindsided. I mean, I was trying to figure it out and I wasn't even close. Lol.

I also love the hero and heroine. They seemed very relatable to me. I'm jealous o

Three simple words, yet they are the hardest to voice....

Aria, having been dealt a pretty crappy hand in growing up and even more of a crappy hand after graduating from college, learns the hard way that life isn't always about the past....its what the future holds.

This is a beautiful book that has you doing some serious soul searching in your own life. How you as a person handle the cards you've been dealt. Do you continue to wallow in the crap hand or do you move on and let the future deal yo

outstanding. amazing. beautiful. quintessential read!!
Ava Harrison pulled out all the stops for this stunning read. THROUGH HER EYES catches you into a whirlwind of emotions like a butterfly caught in a storm... beauty against an unknown destination. The saying "A picture is worth a thousand words," is embraced by the beautiful imagery Harrison captures and portrays in her words. Set mostly in Italy, Harrison writes a postcard of loss, love, understanding, growth, change, self-discovery and red

Hard to believe that three simple words have the power to change your life. I'm writing this review with tears streaming down my face. This story is both heartbreaking and soul healing all at the same time. An emotional rollercoaster of love, loss, forgiveness, and self discovery all rolled into one amazing book. I immediately felt connected to Aria and could almost feel everything she was going through. Chase was a breath of fresh air blowing in at just the right time.

This was a great story! A little bit of love, a little bit of heartbreak, a little bit of finding yourself and a splash of adventure!

There were a couple of twists 3/4 of the way through. You knew they were coming, but I was not 100% sure what they were. Well one I was pretty sure of, but the other... Wow!

This story will make you swoon and tear up, and even laugh a bit. A great read.

Abbandonato, DNF, mi dispiace molto.

Mi aspettavo una storia diversa, sinceramente. L'arrivo di Chase mi ha destabilizzato, perché trovo alquanto sgradevoli le persone che ti dicono che devi vivere il momento, che la vita è un'avventura e tutte altre cose così... spronanti. Le persone che vogliono renderti felice a ogni costo perché la vita è troppo corta per essere tristi. Avrei preferito sapere di Aria e Parker dall'inizio alla fine. Peccato :(

Through Her Eyes by Ava Harrison was by far my first ugly cry book of this year and I wish I could read it for the first time all over again. Aria has been dealt some hard cards in her life. She feels responsible for her brother Owens death and her parents either ignore her or belittle her for still being alive. Owens best friend Parker was always there for Aria as a shoulder to cry on or to help pick her back up. So it was no surprise that she fell for him but to her, he doesn't feel same. Park ...more

This was my first Ava Harrison book and I have to say, despite the gut-wrenching angst, I enjoyed this. The Aria, the heroine was a tough one, especially given the emotional upheaval she was in for most of the book. But by the time I got to the last page, I truly believed Aria has managed to turn her life around and found her happiness.

When we meet Aria, she was a hot mess. She lied to the man she loved, got a phone call that sent her on a

"How can you know what you want for the future if you can't check off the mistakes you made in the past? No matter how toxic, mistakes are a lesson."

It's no surprise that I'm a huge fan of Ava's. I read her first novel and just knew she had a gift. I hoped she would put that gift to use and she has by writing her 2nd full length novel.

This is a story about losing yourself, going on that journey then finding yourself again. You have to get through the
