Phoebe is grown up, or as grown up as you can be at eighteen years old. Most of her life she has lived in the shadow of her dad and around cars. Wanting a chance to just be Phoebe and not the daughter of Declan Reede, she convinces her parents to allow her to travel the United States in an effort to find herself. This journey turns out to be more than what she expected and was she able to find herself before it was time to return home.
Michelle Irwin has done it once again with the start of this series. I love how part of the story we are still in Australia and yet other parts we are traveling in the United States. The author has done her research on places that Phoebe visits and at times I felt like I was the one traveling right along with Phoebe. Again we find that every detail has a reason in this book. I loved being able to catch up with the characters from the other series but meeting new characters such as Angel and Beau.
Angel is a trip and brings some great laughs and is a great friend to support Phoebe in her quest to find herself. You can really feel the love between these two friends. They are there for each other as well as partners in crime. The fact that Angel will travel with Phoebe so that her parents will allow her to travel overseas speaks volumes to this strong bond they share as friends.
Beau is a mystery but doesn’t want to let go of what he finds. I was back and forth on who Beau really was which added some great mystery to the story. Beau is most definitely your Southern Boy that will have ya’ll swooning. When we first are introduced to Beau, it is so unexpected and not at all what is expected. I love how he finds ways to keep in touch with her on her journey. But what will happen if he learns her secrets, will he still want to be around her?
Phoebe had to learn how to grow up being tough with being a female in a man’s world of race car driving hasn’t been easy even if her daddy is Declan Reede. Letting down that tough exterior is not a simple task even when you meet someone you want to get to know better yet knowing it can’t lead to anything when she is only visiting. Phase will take you on a non-stop ride that you will not be able to put down as you will be cheering for some events and ready to toss your kindle at others. I can’t wait to see where the road takes us as we continue the next in the series as this one will leave us on a cliff needing more.
If you have read Michelle Irwin's Declan Reede's: The untold Story then you would have already met Phoebe's and know all about her start in life and built a relationship with this little girl that is now all grown up (well almost).
Don't worry however if this is the first of Michelle's books you have read though because she writes in such a fluid way that even if you don't have a history with this young woman you will soon learn all about her.
Definitely a recommendation to all adults readers.
Living in the shadow of a legend has its drawbacks.
Every aspect of Phoebe Reede’s life has been defined by her father. Caught halfway between being a teen and an adult, she yearns to break free from the weight of expectations surrounding the Reede name.
Her desire for freedom sends her overseas on her first solo journey. There, she finds herself having an unexpected adventure with an unlikely person.
How can she learn who she wants to be and what is nothing more than a phase?
I'm really glad that I stuck it out, though. This book was great! I gobbled it up, and then hated that it had ended. I can't wait to see what happens with Phoebe and Beau. This was my first book by this author and I am looking forward to reading more. Excellent read.
Phoebe is so much like her father, in more ways than one, and it was such a wonderful thing to see, right from the beginning of the book! It was great to see just how much she was like him, but also like Alyssa as well!
I loved that, although this book was purely for Phoebe, and about Phoebe, Michelle still managed to maintain the love story between Alyssa and Declan that I’d grown so used to! The title of the book, fits Phoebe, and the experience she’s going through so well, trying to decide who she is, what she wants, and whether this is all just a ‘Phase’; I will hint that the remaining titles of the books also fit perfectly, and I’m sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for them all.
Michelle has not only continued to portray her original characters, Phoebe, Declan and Alyssa perfectly, even with the time lapse between the end of Declan’s last book, and the start of Phoebe’s first, they have all grown, and changed in just the ways we expected, with a few little surprises thrown in!
I have loved Phoebe Castor Dawson, or should I say Reede, since she was first introduced in Declan’s series, and have grown to love her even more as the books have gone on. Not only is she a wonderful character, with a heart of gold, but as a character, her and her situation are so truly relatable, that it is easy to feel connected to her, and make you wish like hell she existed!
Michelle has managed to make me happy, sad, and at times, either angry or confused as all hell throughout this book, but she always manages to make sense, have everything connected, and have you wondering how the hell you missed that, when you finally see the connections she had plotted in the sand.
If you haven’t got Phase on your TBR list, you’re an idiot, and I’ll be sending Declan around to give you a slap around the head, and a stern talking to, because the attitude you’ll be getting from Phoebe, and her best friend Angel, are more than bloody worth it!
Michelle, you never cease to amaze me, and exceed expectations.
Thank you for letting me come along for the ride with Phoebe, and thank you for letting me feel like the overprotective Aunt!
