Book Description

Only when you let go can you learn to live.

Between the death of her mother and pushing through law school without her best friend, it's been a tough year for Becca. Needing a break from Boston, she moves to a tiny coastal North Carolina town for a relaxing summer. After bumping heads repeatedly with a local cop, she realizes her summer will be anything but quiet.

Three years after a career ending injury ruins his chance to play Major League Baseball, Gavin has a distrust of northerners and lately girls in general. He wants nothing to do with a girl who is only in town for the summer.

When the two give in to their impossible attraction, they realize that they may just have found the key to freeing themselves from the ghosts of their pasts.

(New Adult, contains sexual situations and mild language)

5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely love her style of writing. December 14, 2012
By Cori
Format:Paperback
I get it!

I finally get why Gavin was included in Derailed and while I didn't care for him in that story I absolutely love him in Veer. Alyssa Rose Ivy is the best. I'm not sure why I expected any different because I absolutely love her style of writing. I can literally finish her books in a couple of hours because I can't put them down!

Becca, Molly's friend from college from Derailed comes to Clayton Falls to get away from a life that's sort of crumbling down around her and she needs a break. The very first person she meets on her way is Gavin when her car dies on the highway. They don't exactly hit it off, but since the books are from their perspectives you get to see what they're thinking and I love that about how Ivy writes. Because even though the characters aren't sure what the other is thinking, we as the reader know.

One of the best parts of this story though is getting to see new sides of old characters. We learn so much about Gavin in this book, where he comes from, and why he is the way he is. We also get to see another side of Jake, which is awesome. He forms this completely platonic bond with Becca and I absolutely love how protective he is of her. I'm going to skip over his drunken moment of insanity and say that their friendship was one of my favorite parts of this book.

I know I've been gushing about Gavin, but I really enjoyed Becca's character to and god there were some points where I just felt so bad for her that all I wanted to do was give her a hug! She seems a little jumpy throughout the book, but when we finally find out why well who can blame her?

The Clayton Falls series is absolutely one of my favorites. I think the only character I didn't love in this book was Matt, the lawfirm guy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read January 28, 2013
Format:Paperback
An honest admission, a groaned escaped the moment it was revealed that Gavin was featured in this book. His arrogant pushy attitude during Derailed was outlandish...so wasn't looking forward to reading an entire book featuring him. It was going to take a lot to redeem him, but the author was successful - while maintaining his original characteristics. Becca's character was written as a charismatic, strong, yet vulnerable woman who irritated the HELL out of Gavin --- she instantly won my vote!

Looking forward to Wrecked; Jake's story

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked it December 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The writing was good but, I felt like she left a lot of missed opportunities for more of a story. And, then we were rushed to the ending. I don't want to give anything away,so I will leave it at that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic New Adult Contemporary Romance! December 14, 2012
Format:Paperback
In 'Veer', the second novel in a new adult contemporary romance series, Becca's life is in ruins after the death of her mother and barely making it through law school. Needing someplace to go to clear her head and take a break, Becca goes to a small town in North Carolina. While there, Becca finds herself repeatedly butting heads with a local cop named Gavin. Despite both their efforts, the attraction between them is impossible to ignore and may be just the thing they both need.

This novel is a realistic look into the heart and mind of a twenty-something woman who has lost everything dear to her, as well as her way in life. Although the story is filled with pain and loneliness, which the author portrays in such a detailed way that the reader feels Becca's every emotion along with her, the rays of hope also fill its pages. It's a story of finding oneself and beginning a new future - which is something that all readers can easily identify with. The novel is very well written and easily captivates the heart and mind of the reader from the very beginning. The characters are all very real and written in a way that makes you feel like you've known them forever. Although I normally don't like contemporary romances, the author did such a wonderful job with the engaging plot, underlying themes, and beautiful writing that I was won over early on. This is a fantastic second novel in a really great new contemporary series from a very talented writer and one that I highly recommend.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could be better. September 23, 2013
By Bellz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The writing is awkward and stilted. It's boring at times and there's no real chemistry between the couple. The heroine is a annoying and so overly sensitive that it felt that almost every conversation would end in another pointless fight and sadly the hero was the same way. Way to much anxiety in this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish September 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It Read choppy and immature. They are 20 something year old adults but didn't speak like adults. I couldn't get past how many 'that's cool' phrases they kept saying. And slow, slow, slow. Was there even a plot? I really couldn't finish this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars That's all???? January 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got into the groove of the book so easily. It was ok. I didn't feel the need to read in one sitting like I usually do but still read it at a fast easy pace. The end was disappointing. Yes the were of course together but I feel like there should have been more. Tis an unguaranteed happily ever after.

Gavin is an unrealistic character to the men in this world. It was not believable. The portrayal about men in this story is more wishful thinking by Alyssa. Not very memorable. Read more

I didn't like this one as much as the first book, but it was good. I think it needed a little bit more plot. I liked the characters, but not enough of a juicy storyline.
