About the Author

I have always had tales to tell and one day someone encouraged me to put one of my stories in book form. Since then I've enjoyed weaving together characters and plot points to create new stories. When I'm not writing, I'm busy loving on my 3 kids and husband, gardening, or painting. My life in the suburban Midwest is never dull, because I seem to always be surrounded by colorful characters that influence my writing.

When this book begins, it appears to be about typical high school friendships eventually developing into a relationship between two seemingly normal teenagers, Jay and Brogen. But as the story progresses, we learn that Brogen is an Empath and she can sense when something bad is going to happen to someone she cares about. We also see Jay learn that he has a genetic disorder, Vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, which affects all of the collagen in his body. Throughout the book, we see how Jay responds to Brogen and others around him as he learns how to process this diagnosis and the profound effect it has on his future and his life. We see instances of how fragile his skin, blood vessels and organs are due to this disorder. Because of this, we also get a taste for how serious this condition is and the extra precautions needed if surgery is indicated, as it is such a life-threatening condition.

Being a person who lives with Vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (vEDS) myself, I was eager to read this book and see how it was portrayed. Although this is a fictional book, I was very happy with the realistic portrayal of the lives surrounding someone diagnosed with vEDS. It shared the emotions of the person with the diagnosis as well as the emotions of the close friends and family members who support the person living with this diagnosis. It fairly represented the disbelief, anger, sadness and fear that a person goes through when receiving this diagnosis. Although this book was not a biography for any one specific person, it certainly could be many people's story who live with vEDS in their lives somehow. There were situations in the story that brought tears to my eyes, and situations that made me very happy.

Oh my, I was so caught up in this book and couldn't stop reading, even if I wanted to--and I didn't!!! This is a beautiful young adult love story about love, friendship, drama--the usual stuff, right? Wrong. These characters are so different, and I felt so connected to Jay and Brogen that I wanted to hug them! Brogen is an empath, which basically means she's bombarded by everyone's emotions around her. It's so overwhelming for her that she withdraws from most people and activities. But the new guy--sweet, handsome Jay--won't allow that to happen any longer. He's crazy about her, even though he has other mean girls vying for his heart. Like Becca, whose character I loathed! But then Jay finds out he has a dangerous, rare disorder called VEDs. Instead of telling Brogen, he retreats, threatening to destroy the one good thing they both have. Boy, this story was intense and beautiful. The writing was superb and loved every bit of the plot. The ending is perfect and the beginning had me hooked. Needless to say, I'm a total D.A. Roach fan now! This book also brings awareness to a disorder that I know the author herself is passionate about, which tugged on my heart strings and made me love it even more.

The topic was very serious , but the heroine was very immature. She was too judgmental. She sees two new kids in her class and she immediately thinks about what social ladder and rank they will be in. I loved the premise, but some things did not work for me. First the heroine's mother is the hero's doctor. I don't think doctors are even allowed to tell people who is or isn't their patient. Then the heroine tells her BFF, Meg, everything. EVERYTHING. I was surprised she did not call her to tell her how many times she used the bathroom.

The relationship and verbiage felt awkward and immature. The heroine has this "gift" empathy. I honestly thought that this book was going to be a paranormal the way the heroine went on and on about how she can feel things.

A new boy comes to school. The heroine and he develop friendship or relationship, I don't know for sure. It all felt off and forced. She thinks he flirts with the other new girl, but he doesn't, then he does when he thinks that the heroine has blown him off. The heroine has a lot of trust issues since her father abandoned her. The father cheated on her mother and started dating an attractive blonde woman. The heroine stresses that she does not want a man who will do that to her. There is a lot of miscommunication. Later, the hero finds out some awful news and the story takes a different turn.

The heroine and the verbiage did not work for me. It may work for you.

RARITY by D.A. Roach was like a breath of fresh air. I’ve been quickly becoming a huge fan of YA Romances, and DA Roach solidified it. Her writing style was so easy to follow and connect with, that I could not help but love it. If you’re a fan of Young Adult novels, you really need to pick this one up!

While reading, I couldn’t contain my need to hug Brogen and Jay. You see, Brogen was an empath, so having your emotions get all screwed up because of other people’s feelings, is NOT a walk in the park. I felt for her. And she was in high school, mind you, which is the place where hormones and emotions run on full speed!! Let’s not even discuss the drama factor. Sheesh. But thankfully, her mom would guide her and help her deal with everything so that she wouldn’t suffer panic attacks. To top things off, she had to deal with her dad, whom I was NOT a fan of.

“Each day I grew more intrigued, and each day I became more attracted to him.”

Jay. Oh, gosh. Jay. What a guy!!! He and his story definitely pulled on my heart. Once he and Brogen met, they became friends. How could they not? It’s like they were made for each other. They didn’t have thing easy though. From rabid dogs to catty girls...to Jay’s condition. Yeah. But Brogen stood by his side.

While reading, certain scenes made my heart ache, beat faster, and even STOP. So the fact that DA Roach evoked such emotions from me was yet another plus!

“What happened to us? I has a normal life – quiet, one amazing friend, no drama – before you came into town. Then you show up, save my life, and shower me with kindness and charisma. I let you in. I never let anyone in. Then, as fast as you drew me in, you pushed me away. And now? Here I am…without you and drowning….
