Author Lila Felix has stopped by today with an guest post from her Love and Skate Blog Tour!
Title: Love and Skate
Author: Lila Felix
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
On the rink she’s tough, she’s a leader, she’s fast and she’s the epitome of a rebellious girl. But Nellie’s been hurt, only once, but it was enough to make her look at life through different eyes and off the rink she’s a timid girl who loves with no pretenses.
A long time ago Owen Black was betrayed by the girl he thought he loved and the guy he called his best friend. The anguish set off a domino effect of negativity in his life and he never has fully recovered. He meets Nellie Forrester and thinks he can let it go for her.
But how can you love someone when the wounds from your past are still wide open?
I really enjoyed reading this one! I loved the tone of the story and the characters were really engaging. I felt a real connection with Nellie. She was living her own life and finding the family of her own choosing after her birth family showed themselves to be about worthless. Owen was great too. I felt for him as he tried to move past his past mistakes. He literally wears the scars of his past on his body. I loved most that Nellie and Owen were all about being themselves. They felt the pain of what others thought of them but they focused on being happy in living the way they wanted to. I liked that the story went from Nellie's point of view to Owen's and back again from one chapter to the next. It gave you a better grasp of the story and moved the story forward. I thought the Roller Derby was a cool add in to the story. I found this book to be fun, fast paced and unique. I give it 4 Fairies.
Make sure you check out the rest of the books in the Love and Skate series, How it Rolls and Down N Derby.
