Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Choosing You by Allie Everhart






Choosing You Synopsis:

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.


Synopsis of The Jade Series:

The Jade Series is a New Adult Romance that follows the relationship of Jade and Garret in their first year of college. In Choosing You, book 1, Jade and Garret meet on Jade’s first night at Moorhurst College and despite their strong attraction to each other, they’re not allowed to date because of the strict rules that control Garret’s life. In Knowing You, (book 2), Garret breaks the family rules and begins dating Jade. Their relationship grows deeper but issues from Jade’s past complicate matters. Loving You (book 3) shows Jade and Garret growing closer as a couple but also hints at the trouble that lies ahead in Promising You (book 4), in which a new challenge emerges for Garret that could interfere with the future he wants with Jade.


My Review:

This is book 1 of Jade and Garret's story and I definitely want to read more. There is more to the story than I expected. I like Jade. She may be a little confused, but she is feisty and gives Garret a run for his money. She can be prickly, but she has her reasons. Garret is great. He is sweet, even though he acts like a jerk sometimes. It's not really his fault because he has a lot of outside pressure. There is a cliffhanger ending, but I feel like we get some closure. There are some issues left to be resolved, but I wasn't throwing things. More Garret, please!

My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: !
Notes: Some language
