#REVIEW Tour: Choosing You @AuthorAllie @XpressoTours

Choosing You by Allie Everhart
The Jade Series, Book 1

Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Publication date: September 23rd 2013

When Jade is given a scholarship to an elite private college in Connecticut, she sees it as a chance to finally escape her painful past and get a fresh start. She’s determined to succeed and that means keeping her focus on school and not guys. But her plan falls apart her first day on campus when Garret, a rich prep school boy with swimmer abs and a perfect smile, offers to help her move in.

Jade tries to push him away, but she can’t deny her attraction to him and Garret won’t let her. Things quickly heat up between them, but then come to a sudden halt when reality hits and Jade realizes that a relationship with Garret may never be possible. He comes from a world of wealth where there are rules, including rules about who he can date. And not following those rules has consequences.

As the two of them try to overcome the obstacles working to keep them apart, Jade is confronted with another challenge. On her 19th birthday, she receives a letter that her now deceased mother wrote years ago. In it are revelations that explain her traumatic childhood but also make her question the past she’s been running from.

Full Series Description
The Jade Series is a New Adult Romance that follows the relationship of Jade and Garret in their first year of college. In Choosing You, (book 1), Jade and Garret meet on Jade’s first night at Moorhurst College and despite their strong attraction to each other, they’re not allowed to date because of the strict rules that control Garret’s life. In Knowing You, (book 2), Garret breaks the family rules and begins dating Jade. Their relationship grows deeper but issues from Jade’s past complicate matters. Loving You (book 3) shows Jade and Garret growing closer as a couple but also hints at the trouble that lies ahead in Promising You (book 4), in which a new challenge emerges for Garret that could interfere with the future he wants with Jade. Originally, book 4 was the end of the series, but fans wanted to read more about Jade and Garret, so Allie is now in the process of writing Forever You, an all-new, full-length follow-up book to The Jade Series releasing later this spring!


REVIEW
In a genre when all books are beginning to blend together, Everhart offers a unique love story. It still holds the components New Adult fans crave -you know, that angst- but Jade and Garret are something all their own. The subtle mystery surrounding them drives the story line, keeping readers curious about the true backgrounds while glimpses are gradually shared throughout the book.

There are some lulls in the flow where readers spend time inside Jade's head but there's a lot of important things going on up there. While it may have been possible presenting these facts differently, it doesn't necessarily take away from the story. It simply slows down the story while readers immerse themselves in Jade's psyche.

Choosing You is a good read. I will most definitely choose to read this whole series.
