Miles From Kara is the second book in the Charleston Haven series and is the companion novel to Pieces of Olivia. I first fell in love with Melissa West's writing when I read Pieces of Olivia and couldn't wait to read more from her.
Miles From Kara follows the story of Kara Marcus. Kara has had a very difficult past and is still having trouble coping with the decisions that she's had to make. Her tough choices started at an early age, when she was 16, she had sex for the first time and was completely unprepared for the consequences of her actions. Then, she ended up staying with Ethan, her high school boyfriend even though they grew apart every day....One day, Kara's world shifts from it's normal place and she finds herself attracted to her someone else. She is at a war with her heart over what is right and what is wrong. She has no idea what the correct course of action is, not only in love, but in her life.........
I absolutely adored Miles From Kara. I was immediately pulled in from the first page. As soon as I started this book, I knew I was not going to be able to put it down....And I was right. I devoured this book in just a few short hours. The characters were real, complex and broken. Their issues were tough and complicated. Melissa West did an amazing job tackling the controversial issue that plagued Kara. My heart went out to Kara and I felt so bad for her that she had to endure the guilt that she had and how she never really dealt with the heart of her problems.
I think that Colt was the perfect match for Kara. I loved that they were friends first and then slowly developed their relationship. Colt was protective, calming, sweet and totally swoon-worthy. Even when things got tough, Colt never gave up on Kara or pushed her. Colt was also very honest, even when Kara didn't want to listen. He was everything that Kara never realized that she needed.
Miles From Kara takes you on one incredibly journey . This book is smart, funny, sexy and tackles an issue that I haven't read too much about in the NA genre. The writing is captivating and will have you devouring the pages. If you've been thinking about reading this series or it's been hanging out on your TBR for a while, bump it up, read it now. You will not be disappointed.

I loved Colt, but he almost seemed too good to be true. I kind of wish he had a little more bad boy to him. But don't get me wrong! He plays a super supportive partner for Kara. I think I would have appreciated a little more background on Colt.
I liked the strong presence of Olivia and Preston in Kara's life, and the addition of Taylor and Sarah's budding relationship smells like a book 3!!!
I wasn't really a huge fan of Kara when we first met her on Pieces of Olivia. But now that we get her story from her perspective, I completely changed my mind about her. Kara did not have an easy life. From an early age, she was forced to handle a very difficult situation she wasn't prepared for. What I liked most about her was how real she felt. I have no idea how I would've handled things if I found myself in her situation so I really admire her strength and determination. I love reading about Kara and Maggie's growing relationship. It shows the emotional, vulnerable and loving side of Kara that she rarely shows. She's a tough girl but she's terrified of letting people in.
And of course, what better way to shake things up than with a guy who has tattoos with a sexy Aussie accent and a "chin-length dirty blond hair had this I-just-got-out-of-bed doing-things-you-wish-you-were-doing look".
Colt is the kind of guy any girl would be lucky to have. He's caring and protective and I love that he never let Kara push him away. He's very understanding, patient and supportive. He has his own issues to deal with but he never fails to come through for Kara and be there for her when she needs him most. The chemistry between these two is way off the charts. I don't think I have ever seen a more perfect couple than Colt and Kara.
I absolutely love Miles From Kara. Everything about it - the complex characters, the genuine storytelling and the smexy romance - was brilliant! Also, I loved seeing Kara's character grow throughout the book. How Preston, Olivia, Rose and Colt all played a role in helping her truly see herself for who she is no matter how many terrible decisions she may have made. How she realized at the end that we are not shaped by the mistakes we made but rather how we learned from those mistakes and made ourselves better because of it.
And can I just say Rose is an awesome character? (I would love to see more of her on the third book.)
I applaud Melissa West for tackling the issues of abortion and teenage pregnancy and writing it in an honest, realistic and heartfelt way.
'This was a new kind of love, so different from what I was used to that I didn’t recognize it at first. I was letting myself be flawed, all open and exposed. This was the real me, the take-it-or-leave-it kind of love.'
I received an e-arc via NetGalley to read and review.
