Book Review


This book totally took me by surprise!

When a book starts with a violent attack and a police investigation, one expects the worst to happen. Clearly I read too many gloomy thrillers, because “Roadside” was not at all what I expected.

Roadside (Release Date: May 2017)

Zayne finds Serena’s lifeless body off the side of the road one morning. She has been beaten and left for dead. As she recovers, they become the best of friends. It doesn’t take long for Zayne’s feelings to grow stronger. Will the fear of ruining their friendship keep them from taking a chance on love?

My Thoughts…

Definitely not my usual choice for reading material, but it was very sweet and I enjoyed it.

As I mentioned, the story of Zayne and Serena starts of in the most violent of ways. Serena is attacked and left for dead, and Zayne finds her on the side of the road. His father is the lead detective investigating her case and there are a million reasons why they should probably not get involved.

Zayne’s compassionate nature and Serena’s strength, allow them to form a special relationship which inevitably turns to romantic love. Of course it’s obvious to everyone but them, and there are many obstacles in their way.

This is a clean romance, no detailed sex scenes, or raunchy language. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but there are tons of readers who prefer to read a more innocent romance, and Angie delivers. Don’t get me wrong, there are some dark moments and mature themes but they are handled gracefully.

“Roadside” is perfect for people who like romance with a dash of suspense. Also, a great story for people like me, who like to read something with a happy ending every now and then 😉

Rating… A
