About the Author
I live in Northern New Jersey. I am a wife and mother of two girls. I have been an avid reader my whole life, I cannot remember a Sunday afternoon that did not include my parents reading. We had a huge bookshelf in our den with a diverse set of authors like Ayn Rand, Stephen King, Mario Puzo & Danielle Steele. I have always had ideas and characters running around my head but it took a few good friends to push me to start putting them down on paper. I hope you enjoy my musings. Please feel free to contact me I would love to hear from you.

Lisa knew from the moment she met Bobby that he was the one for her. What she didn't expect was for Bobby to walk away from her. Heartbroken, Lisa did the unmentionable, forever changing her relationship with Brad. Here is where I feel Prand did a phenomenal job with the characters and made them true to life. Lisa, like most teenage girls who have had their heart broken, goes through the stages of breakups. She is angry, vengeful and understandably depressed. But once that is all said and done she makes the conscious choice of putting Bobby firmly in the past and moves forward... and away. Starting over someplace that does not remind her of Bobby, she builds a life for herself. At first I was critical about how quickly she seemed to get over the hurt when Bobby came back in to her life, but let's face it, who among us wouldn't jump at the chance at a second chance with the love of our lives but with the added bonus of maturity that will hopefully make things work the second time around?
I have to admit that I was on an emotional roller-coaster fro the very beginning. I began firmly on #TeamStuart. He just seems so perfect for her. But then there's Brad. The best friend who has always loved her and always been there. That being said, who wouldn't be firmly in #TeamBrad? But oh Bobby! Bobby is the flawed hero. Although I understand his motivation for breaking up with Lisa, I can't help but think that he could have gone about it in a completely different way. But this new Bobby is so sweet and romantic. I want to cheer for him and put my ballot in for #TeamBobby. As a reader this puts me at a disadvantage because I like the characters and someone is bound to get hurt. See where my emotional roller-coaster comes in? I want them all to be happy but as there is only one Lisa and three guys, two out of four of these characters are bound to be upset and heartbroken.
There were a couple of hit or misses for me, I felt that Lisa was getting too emotionally invested in Bobby too quickly given that she was still involved with Stuart. However, as a freshman novel, I am both impressed and delighted with the story Prand gave us. It was heartfelt and emotional and everything I look for when I want to escape in to my books. Watch Me Walk Away is bound to be one of my favorites for years to come.
All of the characters were easy to relate to. This book is written from alternating point of views from Lisa and Bobby which I love. I found myself rooting for different guys through out this book. It was a very light and quick read. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes love triangles or a light romantic read. I look forward to the next book in the Walking Series.
Wow...this book played with my emotions a bit, but probably not in the way it was meant. We have Lisa who hopelessly is in love with Bobby. Her first boyfriend who walked away from her when she needed him. I felt for her I did, knowing what she wanted and how she felt about Bobby in that moment at his house. But then she did something stupid in my eyes and although with purpose she not only messed up things for herself but she played with someone else's emotion in the process.
Brad, I LOVE that man! Seriously, he can have me! As much as Lisa is desperate for Bobby, Brad is desperate for Lisa. It is obvious to everyone around and the tension is HIGH. Oh and did I mention that Lisa already HAS a boyfriend. Oh, I didn't? YES SHE DOES! So she has a boyfriend, while Bobby comes waltzing back into her life, and Brad is still following her around like a puppy...talk about a man buffet. To choose is all she has to do, but while one decision was easy the others really did a number mentally.
I think this is the first book I hated the female more than the male characters. I know! Strange but I really felt that she needed to get her crap together and stop it! I understood her emotional struggle but as the reader we see the bigger picture *wink*
AND WHAT A WAY TO END IT!! TALK ABOUT TEARS JILL PRAND! ugh I love you!
5 *WINK* READ
