Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Char blog tour today. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.
Char (stand alone)
Author: Mercy Amare
Genre: NA Romance Contemporary
Summary: I’m Charlotte York, but you can call me Char. My life is perfect. Except for the fact that my older sister is posing naked for Playboy. And my mom wants me to be just like her. Oh, and I caught my boyfriend cheating on me. But other than that, it’s definitely perfect... Until the paparazzi publishes a picture of me smoking weed.Now I am being forced to move to NYC with my dad. Too bad I hate New York. At least there is Tristan Becker. He makes NY better. But he won’t date me because he thinks my best friend is in love with me. Which is absolutely not true... Or at least I don't think it is.As you can see my life is just... perfect.
Char doesn't want to be anything like her older sisters. Her mom is constantly pushing her to be just like them. She also walked in an caught her boyfriend cheating on her. Her dad isn't in her life a lot and now she is being sent to live with him after getting caught in pictures smoking weed. She leaves behind her California life to live in New York. She thinks she hates New York until she meets Tristan Becker. He shows her life can be good here. He also gets her to see her best friend may just love her more than a friend. While she thinks things may be settling down her family life gets even more chaotic. She has to see what she wants for her future and see how she can make her life better.
Char is a great character. She is open about what she believes in and what she doesn't want. She just hasn't decided what she does want. She grows up a lot living with her dad and sees things aren't as she always believed. I love how much she grows in this book. Her sisters are very different in many ways but just as entertaining. Tristan is a smart sexy guy who takes his time and doesn't rush into things. He has a good head on his shoulders and thinks things through.
I would tell anyone to read this book as I didn't put it down till I finished it. The lifestyle and characters are so fantastic. You know you don't want the lifestyle for yourself but you love to read about it. I love the world the author created and how well you get inside Char's head. You really get to understand her and while reading you feel you are Char. There is loads of scandal in this fantastic book as her sisters are always in the spotlight. There is also a twist with the love as you see if Char's best friend actually does love her or not and how far she will go to be his friend. She won't allow anything stop her from being there when he needs her. While I am glad this is a stand alone book and I got to see a glimpse of characters from previous books by this author I wanted more. Just because I enjoyed Char so much. I would recommend this to everyone.
5 out of 5 Stars
