Blurb:
In the little highway town of Bourbon, Missouri, deadly secrets lurk behind Southern charm.

Seventeen year old Charli Valentine didn’t expect to spend the last few weeks of summer break nursing a broken heart, icing a black eye, and watching her ex kiss another girl. Since being a good girl has gotten her nothing but heartache, Charli decides to give rebellion a try. She pigs out, drinks, and hangs with Luke Parker, the son of the infamous Bourbon Butcher.

But there’s more to Luke than meets the eye. His tough exterior and terrible dialect hide a good person despite his bad boy reputation. No matter how hard he tries to fight it, Luke is drawn to Charli’s innocence and finds her clumsiness too charming to resist. Though they’re from opposite sides of the tracks, neither can resist the magnetism drawing them together.

When Charli discovers a box in her mother’s closet, she pieces together the truth about Bourbon’s past and uncovers a deadly secret about her family. And once Luke learns of it, he vows to protect Charli no matter the cost.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

17-year-old Rich girl left alone for a week while parents are overseas anniversary trip and no one expects trouble? Well, trouble is always to be found. In this case, Charli is interested in finding why she doesn’t know her birth father and why her mom clams up at the mention. Add in the one boy mom says to stay away from no matter, an overbearing, confused, borderline abusive sometime boyfriend, and an overprotective best friend with her own issues and we have a roller coaster ride in the making. Seeing Luke and Charli become friends and overcome their differences and allowing them to learn about each other, regardless of prejudice of economic barriers and fight to save each other was worth the ride. The question is, will they both be saved or will one take the fall to prevent the other from the pain of surviving this heartache in the making?

The cliffhanger at the end isn’t atrocious either. It makes me interested in the battles to come!

Pivot Point.caWhat is the pivot point? It is that place in the middle where two lines split to go their separate ways. Why is this important, you might ask? Because that is the most integral part about making a decision. It is the one point to where you must choose the path you will go and deal with the consequences of your choices.

Pivot Point.caWhat is the pivot point? It is that place in the middle where two lines split to go their separate ways. Why is this important, you might ask? Because that is the most integral part about making a decision. It is the one point to where you must choose the path you will go and deal with the consequences of your choices.

Addison Coleman, Addie to her friends, is a normal teenager if you consider having advanced mind control abilities to be normal, that is. She lives in a compound with her mom who can persuade people to do or feel what she wants them too, and her dad who is a human lie detector. And you thought your parents were bad! She has a best friend that can erase memories and has been noticed by the High School quarterback. Life is good until her mom and dad tell her they are getting a divorce and she must decide if she will remain with her mom or go with her dad and live in Texas with the normal people.

As a Discerner, she can tell the future, but only if faced with a choice. So, faced with this decision, she and best friend Laila decide she should search her 2 possible futures and Laila could erase the future she does not choose. Great plan! Then she follows her life through 6 weeks in both worlds. She makes new friends, is betrayed in either scenario and is faced with decisions within the search that lead to more questions. Just as she decides which future she wants to keep a major event involving Laila jerks her back. Both scenarios are horrible, but she must decide which she can live with for the rest of her life.
If there was ever a book that deserves a sequel, this is it! I instantly connected with Addie as she struggled with real issues in an unreal world. She is such a strong leading female character and her instincts are spot on. Yet, she still had that high school feel to her. Just immature enough to be believable. I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds now that the past has played out and she has a chance at the future she had to let go!
