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!
I was also confused by the introduction of a bracelet and picture that never really had a resolution. There's a saying for writers that if you show a gun in the first act, it needs to go off by the third. I kept waiting for the picture and bracelet to come into play, but they never did as anything more than a mention.
I would have liked to see things with the resolution to the attack stretched out as part of the conflict, showing Zayne and Serena working through more of the consequences of the attack rather than just him being protective and one scene near the end. More exposition between the dialogue and slower resolutions to keep the tension. Even so, I will probably check out this author's work in the future. I was given a free copy in a review exchange for an honest review.
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.
