So I just finished Abandoned by Elisa Dane. It is a YA and up novel that I really enjoyed reading. I actually finished it in half a day! 🙂 Abandoned is a romance novel that’s filled with love, drama, and heartache; A perfect combination.
The Cover: You can definitely tell by the cover this is a Romance book. Its very classy looking though and shows your main character.
The Summary: My name is Tierra Owens, and I like to kiss. A lot. It numbs the hollow ache in my chest
and—for a few minutes—makes me forget how truly alone I am. My mother is an alcoholic. She hates me and insists I’m the reason she’s not married to my father, whom I have never met. My best friend, Kaylee, is the only person who knows the real me. Everyone else sees what I want them to: a happy, confident, popular girl who has the world at her feet.
I am a fraud.
Relationships are forbidden. I avoid them at all costs. Sex? Emotions? Those things make a person vulnerable, and vulnerability always leads to heartbreak. When my childhood crush, Mattie shows up at school my world tumbles off its axis. The shell I surround myself with feels more like a pathetic crutch than a protective barrier, and I find myself wanting things. Daydreaming about what it would be like to have a boyfriend, a relationship—love.
The sad fact is: I’ll never have any of those things. I am unworthy—trash. Which is why my mom abandoned me.
In my opinion, the summary really doesn’t give justice to the story line. It only tells part of what the story contains. On a scale of 1-10 I rate this book a 9! Really the summary is the only reason I didn’t give the book a full 10.
Abandoned is a romance novel and does contain some mild sexual content, but its not awkward or uncomfortable to read if you’re not into those kind of books. I recommend this book to be your next read. Elisa Dane did a very good job. I provided the link so you can purchase it today! It is available on Kindle:
