My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed reading Derailed. I thought it was a wonderful love story. It was sweet and romantic, but it was also a bit of a tear jerker too, so be prepared!

I felt so bad for Molly. She experienced so many terrible things and she was just so lost, but a good thing though is that she had a lot of good friends to lean on when she moved back home. I adored Molly’s best friend, Kelly. She was awesome, I liked how she was always looking out for her. I also really liked Ben. I thought he was a great match for Molly, sparks were flying when these two were together! I didn’t like how possessive he was of Molly though, it has always annoyed me when a guy acts like that, but other than that I thought Ben was a great guy.

Overall, I thought this was a great story! It was the second book I have read by this author and it will definitely not be the last. Alyssa Rose Ivy is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors!

My Rating:
5/5 Stars

My Thoughts:

 Once I started reading Flight, I had a hard time setting it down. Alyssa Rose Ivy did a great job creating something completely different, I don’t think I’ve read anything else like Flight before.

I enjoyed pretty much everything about this book, I think the only issue I had with it was Levi’s character and that’s because he made me so mad! He was always acting like a jerk! Allie on the other hand, was cool. I like how she stood up to Levi, how she never took any of his crap. I think that’s what made her a good match for Levi, because she was exactly the type of girl he needed.

My favorite aspect of this story was definitely the New Orleans setting. I’ve never been to New Orleans, but after reading this book I’m dying to go there and check this place out. It sounded like a really fun place to be!

Overall, I thought Flight was an enjoyable read! It had a great storyline and I can’t wait to read book #2 to see how it continues!
