Book #15: Blue by Sarah Jayne Carr

Blue Brennan is a runner. 
She runs from her problems. 
She runs from love. 
She runs from her past. 
What Blue doesn’t anticipate is running toward her hometown of Steele Falls, Washington, especially after she’d vowed to never go back. 

Adam Rockwell is a fighter. 
He fights his demons. 
He fights for validation. 
He fights for his future. 
What Adam doesn’t anticipate is fighting for Blue Brennan, especially when he vowed to never let love get in his way again.

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. What follows is my opinion and my opinion only.

This book has so many emotions that you are either reading through the whole thing in one setting or setting it aside to gather what you’ve just read. I happen to have been the latter.

The beginning of Blue instantly caught me off guard. It reminded me of a similar experience and I had to bust out laughing. I got what Blue was saying and there was no doubt it was worth every giggle and guffaw.

And then came the rest of the book . . .

Talk about a spree of emotions. This is not a comedy. It is a drama. You will find yourself cheering on the characters, getting angry at the characters, and laughing at them. You will want to toss the book, pick it back up, read, and toss it again.

And the ending . . . .

Oh, that horrible and beautiful and . . . dear God, it’s hard to explain without giving anything away. Just be sure to have a box of kleenex nearby.

So, who is Blue? Blue is a girl running away from her troubles. She is snarky and fucked up. She is a prickly character who is hard to love. Luckily, Carr fixes that by showing tidbits of Blue’s softer nature. It’s shown close in the beginning too, so, you are able to have some kind of relationship with the main character.

Would I read this book again? I think I would. I would need some time away from it though. Do I recommend the read? Definitely for the peeps who aren’t afraid to cry while reading.
