Summertime is almost here and if you’re in the mood for humorous banter, teenage angst and the trials and tribulations of being young and in love, I’ve just found your first beach read of the season!!!
I am writing this review, not because Ryan Ringbloom is my business partner and co-founder of Author Navigation, not because she may have some incriminating photos of me dancing on a speaker (haha! just kidding! maybe…), but because she’s created a fictional world that I couldn’t escape…and didn’t really want to escape, for that matter.
Regrettably, I bypassed The Fast Series thinking it was going to be way too young for me and jumped right into The Flaw Series (FAB-YOU-LOUS!!!). Then came Books, Blogs and Reality and Fake Boobs and I never looked back, until I realized maybe I’m a bigger fan of YA than I think…
Fast is her very first foray into young adult romance. I downloaded it two days ago and DEVOURED it. Every spare second was spent with my nose in my Kindle. I couldn’t get enough of Ashley, Patrick, Robin and Kent. I also have to say, just as an aside, I love Ryan’s storytelling style. She begins the first section through the eyes of her heroines and then moves into a second part that is driven by the heroes. It is a unique way of capturing the perspectives of each character and she’s definitely established the delivery as her signature style.
The book greatly exceeded my expectations. Ryan breathed life into her characters, giving them depth and dimension. I knew them, felt their pain as well as their passion.
What else can I say? I just LOVED it. I hope you take the same chance. You won’t be disappointed.
