Ember's life hasn't been easy. She is shocked when the handsome and popular Owen explodes into her life like a football player in the fourth quarter, lobbing a Hail Mary pass.
Zander is supposedly Ember's friend. But he has enough hidden agendas to fill a football stadium. He's got his eye on the game, and he'll cheat to win, implementing his own de-flate-gate.
Jillian Jacobs' Ember's Center (The O-Line Series Book 1) is an excellent story for readers of all ages. Ember burrowed her way into my heart, and lodged there. She is a heroine who needs all the cheers we can give her.
Having read Jillian's Other works, I knew I was in for something different with this book. I read the blurb, and I was hooked. I've been in situations similar to the blurb, and I felt I was already connecting with Ember the moment I knew about her life.
Ember has been dealt a hard blow in life, well, several actually. She is trying to cope with all of these issues, some of which are ongoing, and some - like her silbling's suicide - that have passed, but are still a huge part of her life. She feels lost, confused and is in quite a dark place. Then she starts to work closely with her counselor. She starts to make headway, and then a strong, domineering man enters her life.
We read along as he takes control, leading Ember to a life she hadn't expected, but at least she has a focus. Is it a good focus though?
I loved this book! I haven't read books by many authors who can tackle two very different genres and do so so perfectly. Yes, this book was dark, but at the same time there was a sweet note coming to the surface. I found myself fighting for this sweet love to become real, something where Ember could have a life and someone she could trust.
From the first page, I felt as though I was a part of this book. I loved and hated, I felt anger, sorrow and joy. I even felt lost, as much as Ember, then started to smile as the things panned out.
The pace of this book is neither fast nor slow, but a blend of both. There are angry moments that are perfectly written, with a swift pace to feel fast and irate. I also loved the slower pace, when we felt a moment of happiness,contentment or love.
The detail is excellent! Each character had a great amount of detail, really brining them to life.Read more ›
Ember’s best friend and frequent shrink Xander credits himself with single-handedly fixing her life. Now Xander believes she’s the perfect woman. But he’s just a doctor-in-training and he’s never made his intentions known. Owen’s presence means Xander’s plans have to come to fruition faster than he’d intended or he risks losing everything he’s worked for. Now all he has to do is get Ember to cooperate and they’ll be golden.
But Ember is finally coming into her own, and she’s got a little something to say about the intentions of both men.
I’m not used to reading books where we get to see the villain’s POV. So I’m not sure if I’m revealing spoilers or not, but fairly quickly in the book we discover the bad guy’s identity (Xander), his intentions, and that he’s probably not quite right in the head. He’s actually super creepy despite how seemingly wholesome he comes off with Ember.Read more ›
