RIRI#1/16 The Turning Point by Marie Meyer

The Turning Point

Synopsis: It’s funny how a piece of paper can change your life-a diploma, a ticket . . . a plain, white envelope

For as long as I could remember, I was the girl with the plan. Good college, good medical school, good career. I would save lives instead of standing by helplessly, watching while they slipped away.

That was before my father called for the first time in fifteen years to tell me about the terminal illness stealing his life-an illness that might be stealing mine, too. It was before he gave me the name of a doctor and a plane ticket to Italy. Before I flew across an ocean. Before I realized how brilliantly bright life could be. Before I met Lucas.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and the timing couldn’t be worse. I can’t do this to him-he deserves so much better. My head tells me I can’t afford to fall in love with Lucas, but my heart won’t listen. Lucas is fearless about the future, while I’m not even sure I have one. There’s only one way to know what’s ahead and it’s waiting for me at home inside a plain, white envelope.

All I have to do, is open it . . .

REVIEW
5 Stars
This was a fast easy and page turning read about a very interesting subject area. I had never read anything by this author before and I am glad this was the first book of hers I had read as it was a fantastic introduction to her writing style as well as her amazing character and plot development skills.

Book Information

Feral Gaze (A Feral Silence Rock Star Romance Novel)

Synopsis: With devoted fans and a panty-melting gaze, Jayce of Feral Silence is an untouchable rockstar god.
Although she tries to be unbiased in her online reviews, amateur music critic Ailey can’t help swooning over Jayce’s musical genius. That doesn’t escape the notice of Neil, the guy Ailey’s been flirting with online. Ailey reassures him: She would never chase after a rockstar like some desperate groupie.

But when Ailey gets a summer internship at Jayce’s music label, her resolve is tested. Although she has strong feelings for Neil, she’s finding it impossible to resist her attraction to Jayce.

What happens when a rockstar god meets the one girl who sees beyond his cocky facade?

Feral Gaze is a sexy ménage rockstar romance. It is the first novel in the Feral Silence series but can be read as a standalone with a HEA.

REVIEW

5 Stars

Before I saw this book on the Goodreads New Adult Bookclub Read it Review it list for this week I had never heard of this author but I am so glad that I have now as the authors writing style, plot and character development was second to none so I loved the book from cover to cover. Therefore I will without hesitation read all of her books in fact I have already claimed my free copy of her second book in the series so I can’t wait to start reading it.
