Choosing You by Allie Everhart Review

Choosing You
Jade Series #1
By: Allie Everhart

When Jade is given a scholarship to an elite private college in Connecticut, she sees it as a chance to finally escape her painful past and get a fresh start. She’s determined to succeed and that means keeping her focus on school and not guys. But her plan falls apart her first day on campus when Garret, a rich prep school boy with swimmer abs and a perfect smile, offers to help her move in.

Jade tries to push him away, but she can’t deny her attraction to him and Garret won’t let her. Things quickly heat up between them, but then come to a sudden halt when reality hits and Jade realizes that a relationship with Garret may never be possible. He comes from a world of wealth where there are rules, including rules about who he can date. And not following those rules has consequences.

As the two of them try to overcome the obstacles working to keep them apart, Jade is confronted with another challenge. On her 19th birthday, she receives a letter that her now deceased mother wrote years ago. In it are revelations that explain her traumatic childhood but also make her question the past she’s been running from.
Note: This is a New Adult novel and contains mature language and situations.

I wasn't sure I would like this book, I am not much of a new adult romance reader, but this book was a very pleasant surprise. But if you are hoping that this book is going to be all sunshine and roses, you are going to be disappointed.
I actually had to stop reading this book a few of times, not because it was bad, no, no far from it! This book was so emotionally powerful to me, at times I was overwhelmed, but I kept going back, I NEEDED to go back because I needed to know.
Jade is an amazing character, at times I found her abrasive personality wearing, but it fits perfectly with her history. I felt so sorry for the character Garret, boy, is that kid between a rock and a hard place.
This book leaves you on a cliff hanger, which makes me sad, because as we all know, I am not really into series books, I mean come on! Why can't we just get whole books anymore? But saying that, I am going to break my rules once again, because I NEED to know what happens to Jade and Garret, past, present and future.
Choosing You earns 9 out of 10 from me for being a truly amazing, heart stopping, gut clenching and addictive book.
