Lynzi's Review ~ Roan by Julia Bright

RoanRoan by Julia Bright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I love reading a book that can surprise me and leaving me with some feels I can't even describe. This book did it. This book did so much. I fell in love with these character's, and I didn't want it to end.

Roan comes from a very well established family. Which means a lot is expected out of him. Including the way he lives his life and who he has in it. Falling in love with someone from the wrong side of the tracks, isn't a good thing. But from the moment he lays eyes on Presley, he knows she's the one. It doesn't matter where she comes from, as long as he can have her. When lines are crossed and feelings start to run deep, things start to blur and life doesn't look so nice.

Presley is determined to rise above the life she has known. She wants more than she had growing up, and wants to help herself and her family. She would never do anything to jeopardize the future she dreams of. Nor did she think one night with the guy she has always had a crush on, could possibly ruin it all. Or that it would ruin her heart. When she is left broken hearted and alone, she finds reasons to be more determined than ever. Failing at life, is no longer an option.

As fate would have it, they end up in the same city again. Coming face to face, they realize they have a past to sort through and a future to determine if they can have. The stakes are higher. The hurt is deepers. The love stronger.

There is nothing I live reading more, than a book where the person is from the 'wrong' side of the tracks. I love seeing a character overcome every crappy thing life has thrown at them, and end up better and stronger in the end. That is what this book is. Overcoming the odds. Determination at its best. The knowledge that giving up is not an option. Prevailing in all its glory. This story has heart. It has pain. It has it all.
