Freefall by Tess Oliver | Book Review

Reading Group: M for Mature

Synopses: After leaving high school, with a hard won diploma and the title of most likely to break hearts, Alexander “Nix” Pierce has left his wild, out of control years mostly behind him. A small inheritance from his grandfather has given him the funds to open up his tattoo shop, Freefall, and he has started to pull his life together. Aside from trying to keep his best friend, Dray, from killing himself in the fight ring, and his slight obsession with a pin-up model he’s never met, Nix’s life is going smoothly . . . until Scotlyn James, the object of his obsession, walks into his shop.

Ever since a tragic accident killed her family and left her alone in the world, Scotlyn James hasn’t spoken one word. Up until now she didn’t care that she had no way of talking to people. Her awful aunt would never have listened, and Lincoln Hammond the arrogant, selfish man who pulled her from the streets of Los Angeles wouldn’t hear her words if she could speak. But when Lincoln insists she get a tattoo to cover up a scar on her side, Scotlyn meets the artist, Nix Pierce. And now she longs for her voice. Now she has found someone who will hear her.

Cover: I hate covers like this.  In general I don't like when people are on covers of books because I like to imagine my own person and I can't really do that if the cover says, "THIS IS WHAT THIS PERSON LOOKS LIKE!!!"  Also, I don't like covers that so blatantly say Romance Novel.  I would probably never buy this book as a physical version.  

My Review: As with most of the books I download for free on iBooks, I picked it because it seemed like a quick read.  I did enjoy this book as well, but it didn't have any surprises in it and I don't have a lot to say about it.  Girl is in bad relationship; girl meets new boy, who just so happens to already know her; boy saves her from bad situation; couple fight scenes; happily ever after.  Don't get me wrong though because I am all for stories like this, especially to read right before bed.  And yes, I did need to force myself to put my phone down so that I didn't stay up all night finishing it in one go.  I appreciated the humor throughout this story, especially between Nix and his friends.  And as cheesy as it is I love the concept that Nix was the one who could hear Scotlyn when no one else could.  It was a little bit of a fate/coincidence thing where he's been holding on to her photo for a long time and then she actually comes into his life.  I mean what are the chances of something like this actually happening?  Maybe that's why it's so fun to read.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone who's looking for something to read quick.  Plus, it's free on iBooks!  The only issue now is whether or not I pay for the rest of the series...
