Stella is a beautiful, emotional, passionate girl who lives her life by the sound of music. She brings out so much truth to how music can be the center of everything that goes on in life. She’s insane and weird in the BEST kind of way, which only made me love her more.
Reid my GOD Reid, he stole a piece of my heart and I don’t think I’ll get it back. This man is so broken and sexy that I just wanted to cry. His soul bleeds music and I think it’s the only way he survived his sadness.
Nate is a strong, passionate man who’s dedicated to his job and loves fiercely. He fights for the love he feels and is determined to win.
I can honestly say that this will no doubt be one of my absolute favorite reads and at the top of my list for 2017. Kate your writing is beautiful and unique, I’m floored by your skills and can’t wait to watch this book soar!!!🙌🏻❤️
The beginning of their journey may have been filled with detours and even some dead-ends but the life that was lived was a beautiful journey that brought happiness along with heartache that molded them into the people who finally found love that was never-ending!
As I read this book the tears were flowing. And yet I discovered that I didn't even know for whom those tears were falling. I may not have known the who at the time but the why was evident. I cried for the injustice of having to choose, I cried for the injustice of not being able to choose, I cried because the love was that raw and real that I didn't know who to choose!
This book is a #MUSTread for sure!
Ain't that the truth ! They sure are a lethal combination .I have read somewhere- Don't fall in love with a rockstar, you'll never go back to anybody ever again!
Sometimes you come across a story which has a whole spectrum of emotions, you may not be able to grasp all of them , but the magic in the words will forever change you. DRIVE is such a book.
FYI- I went in blind, no reading the blurb or reviews at all !
KS can reach out from the book and twist your heart in her writer fist till you can't breathe , just by her thoughts alone. They are some mighty thoughts and potent words awright. The bridge she draws between music and the story shows her acute knowledge of the power of tunes and easily translates it to words . She deserves a standing ovation
Because music is the heart’s greatest librarian. A few notes had the ability to transport me back in time, and to the most painful of places. Take any song from the Rolodex of your life, and you can pin it to a memory. It translates, resonates, and there it will remain. And no matter how many of those Rolodex cards you want to rip out and burn like an old phone number to make room for new ones, those songs remain and threaten to repeat.
The pool of NBWs is pretty small in Booklandia. Don't get me wrong , wonderful books are written daily by accomplished indie writers, some have figured out the pulse of readers and their hold onto it, some have honed their craft to perfection, some ride on the success of their trilogy, expanding the kitty by giving associate characters their own books. And they're Good!
But then we have some #NaturalBornWriters or NBWs who have ink instead blood that flows in their veins, the words are the metronome their heart beats to and music their pulse throbs to.
KS is one of this rare breed that was put on this Earth to write, Period.
This is unequivocally my Fourth 6 star book of the year. What a way to end this year on a highest of High notes , still resonating in my heart. The tie-up of music to memories is beautifully portrayed in this book, every moment of Estella Rosa Maria Emerson or Stella, the niña rebelde, who wants to do something amazing, something so groundbreaking, that she's set a timer on herself. she has her priorities lined up, to finish her school, get a job and forget about Don Haley who broke her heart. She moves to Austin and tries to reinvent herself. Her brain runs on music like adrenaline. For her soul, It's like a therapy, a lifeline
She meets Dead Seargents drummer -Reid 'King' crowne and thump goes her heart, beating hard to his rhythm.
The timing couldn't have been more serendipitous , as if written by Fate herself. She literally saves his life by just walking in his apartment one day. Their lives are forever coupled together like chain links from that point on. Stella pushes Reid for a kiss that probably is the most momentous after Juliet kissed Romeo,and their stars realign themselves. Complete transformation of their fates happens , just from the moment their lips meet.
Trouble follows them everywhere threatening to bring their love house tumbling down. They fight, push, repel, compel, pull and drown together
I've often wondered just like Stella or Paige or hundreds of other readers, what would've happened had Stella not pushed for that kiss?
For one we wouldn't have had a love story to dive into and we surely wouldn't be lying on the floor, hurting and bleeding of broken heart. So there's that ! We're suckers like that, lining up to have our souls shattered to pieces by authors and jagged pieces crunching in their inky hands.
Mayhem does break loose, and they are tattered. There's no other way to describe it. Their hearts shredded and lives tattered blown away in the winds of time.
I cried.. Soulful, heart wrenching tears, almost gave me a stroke!! Can one die of heartbreak? Apparently one can .....almost!
My heart literally was stuck in their misery, nothing consoled me and I sobbed my heart out. OMG ! She is just a girl trying to find her fairytale ........but with the WRONG PRINCE!!!
By this point I was so invested in their lives, I was trying to shake the kindle to get some sense into them. Their life is a tragedy of wrong timings.
Reid's abandonment, Nate Butler's companionship and Page's interventions (though from a place of love and care, I still wanted to muffle her Big mouth) are all instrumental and Ill timed in keeping them far apart. Thus far in the book, I'd had enough, I can't take it anymore,that's it- I'm putting my kindle down , after just one more chapter!
I couldn't though, leave it alone or walk away, I couldn't stop reading.......Crying and reading
A palette of Love in all its splendid colours, fluffy blush-pink to jealous reds to sorrowful Greys, you'll see them all in Technicolor. I can't sing enough praises for this book enough. It rightfully sits at the top of 2017 book heap, wearing golden 6 stars embellished crown and I'm so delighted to have popped my KS cherry with such a remarkable book. I'm going to read her entire back collection, as and when I get a break from my tbr
