Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Numb by Laura Clark, Westbrook 2
Author: Laura Clark
Date of Publication: September 4th, 2015
Well, she used to be indecisive but now she just can’t make up her mind! Laila Marie Patterson has had a summer that would be much better never to have happened. It started with the supposed love of her life, her brother’s best friend and her childhood hero, Samuel David Woodson breaking up with her because, are you ready for this, he loves her and wants to eventually marry and have a family with her. Yes, you read that correctly, they split up because they love each other. Well, after drowning in her own sorrow and depression, she starts to come round by relating to the boyfriend of her best friend, Trevor, another male who she’s known from childhood. Oh boy, don’t expect it to stop there, there are even more male potential boyfriends making their appearances but she really struggles to cope with making emotional decisions concerning which she really wants to have as her boyfriend.
Talk about teenage young love! Laila is seventeen, experiencing kissing and potential love for the first time. Life is full of drama, roller coaster emotions and traumatic events, all portrayed in this second novel in the series. It is a real case of will she or won’t she decide to give love a chance with one or more of her possible suitors – and what will Sam or her brother do in the end? Add in possible relationships for her two best friends, too. And you’re in for a story packed with teenage angst and probably, like me, will wish Laila could have an injection of common sense to help her through it all.
Thanks to the author for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Laila has read that letter a thousand times, and yet she still doesn’t believe it. He left too many things unresolved. She desperately wants to find answers, but it’s impossible since the one person that can give her those answers is MIA.
Each day melts into the next. Laila tries to keep herself busy, but it’s not enough. No matter how hard she tries to forget, there is always something that reminds her of him.
At her very best, Laila is numb.
What happens when Laila is suddenly confronted with her past, and she is forced to make a choice between the boy who owns her heart, and the one that wants to steal it away?
