I Am Carina And I Speak For The Books!

I am Carina, and I speak for the books! I read books because I love to and I write reviews because I need to place my thoughts in "paper". My reviews are honest. Usually not mean, but I can't make promises. Even when I don't like a book, I try to be as nice as possible. And when I love a book, I'm not going to lie, there might be some Fan Girling and Gushing.

Take Me There

Take Me There - Carolee Dean I thought this was gonna be a fluffy, cute romance story, between a 'bad boy' trying to be good for the girl he thinks he doesn't deserve.Well its about alot more tha that. Dylan is trying to go 'legit' after being in Juvi for a while. But everything seem to want to drag him back to the old ways of being a gang member, a drunk and a junkie. He is a misunderstood, closet poet, who can't read. So he starts wondering if he can ever be a good person or if the bad person is impregnated in his blood? A blood that he recieved from his convicted father.After finding Jess, the girl of his dreams, again. He is determined to stay in the right path, but circumstances and obligatory friendships have other plans for Dylan. Now he is on the road to find answers, but some answers might scar him for life.This book made me smile and feel sad at the same time, and if your looking for a 'And they lived happily ever after...' then look some where else, cause this is a book about reality. And reality doesn't always have HEA, but it does have consequences and hope and the will to try and make yourself be a better person. As long as we're breathing, there's hope.4.5 stars
