This is the second book I've read from the author, and I enjoy how she allows the reader to organically unravel the plot.
Zayne is the hero in Roadside. He and his father find Serena's lifeless body on the roadside. His tenderness, kindness, and compassion earns Serena's trust, and the push and pull of their growing friendship evolves into a blistering attraction. Will Serena and Zayne allow their friendship to develop into something more? That my friends, you'll need to read for yourself.
Kudos, Angie Dokos!
Author Angie Dokos has called Roadside a "New Adult Romance," but it might also be considered YA Contemporary Romance or YA Mystery. The main characters are students or college-age adults, and their story is told in an ingenuous style reflective of a young person's natural lack of sophistication.
Roadside is a sweet story that will appeal especially to high school and college age readers but is suitable for readers of any age.
This is a G-rated story, free of steamy sex, foul language, or gory violence. Characters show kindness, acceptance, and forgiveness, and, though no one is perfect, the protagonists attend church. The novel is secular enough to appeal to a wide audience, but it treats people of faith respectfully.
What I liked about Roadside was the packaging; the cover was simple and cute, and it remained tasteful in that aspect, while other romance novels tend to show naked people clinging to each other in some kind of ridiculous embrace.
Roadside was different. The lovable macaroni and cheese orange font, complete with heart and a calming photo of a nice road surrounded by trees was a refreshing change. Another thing I liked was that the novel kept you interested in the characters, Serena's recovery, the discovery of her attacker, and her relationship with Zayne. These four factors lead the plot until the end, which is a very positive thing.
What I did not like about the story was the writing style, because it felt a bit rushed and that it needed more work. I wish that the characters were older, and not college aged because they seem a bit immature and silly and that took away from the story for me. The last thing I did not like was the constant mention of religious elements, and how it seemed to control how the characters acted and what they did. I am also not a fan of novels that take place in the South, but that is a personal preference and should not impact future readers views of this book.
Overall, Roadside is a great book for young people, and Ms. Dokos did a remarkable job engaging the reader throughout the book.
