I’ve previously had that in my life, but only once, briefly, a while ago. It was during the time I’d started my first year of college. My own apartment, a new old car, and a life free of deadbeat stepfathers, all of which was fulfilling enough. But if it wasn’t, I also had a best friend, soul mate, and boyfriend all in one. Yes, life was near perfect.

But one stormy night can change everything…

For many months I rested in a prolonged sleep, fighting for my life. Well, more than fighting for it, also dreaming of it. Dreaming of him. Thank goodness, the dream is over and I’m back in the real world now. And all I want is for everything to return to the way it was. But nothing’s the same; most of all, us.

Once again, I find myself at the crossroads of a ruthless battle, this time not for life, but love. Do I fight for the guy I twice fell for, or do I let her take him away?

We were in no way paid for our opinions **

I was soooooo excited to start Reaction by Jessica Roberts.  I said it my review of Reflection, and I’ll say it again…I love the story of Heather and Nick.  The story in Reaction kept my emotions right on the surface, with tears constantly sitting in my eyes blurring my reading experience, and embedded itself into my heart.  If you thought Reflection was an unforgettable story, what you will find in Reaction will blow you away.

Basically starting right where Reflection left off, we witness the jerky attitude of Nick, when Heather comes out of her coma thinking that their true love was still just that…true.  But Nick went ahead and ripped her out and pretty much tells her he doesn’t love her anymore, that things have changed, and to basically go away and leave him alone.  Ohhh the heart ache!  I’m sure those of you who have read Reflection are pretty anxious to find out how he could be such a douche to a girl who just came out of  a coma due to no fault of her own.

Heather attempts to try and get her life back on track.  Go back to college, make amends with her friends, and possible salvage what she and Nick had.  But when Heather goes to confront him at his home out in the country with his aunt and uncle, it’s not the welcome she was hoping for.  Nick is engaged to another.  I don’t think I’m spoiling anything for you with that bit of news as you find it out pretty early in the book.

As you continue to read, you witness a lot of the bits of information from her accident, to her dreams while in a coma, to the people who are part of this story, come full circle.  Little pieces of the puzzle come together to form this whole new twist in this story of Heather and Nick.   And can I just say that I love her friends?  The way in which they supported Heather during her time of heartbreak?  To try to make light of the situation she is in?  The way in which they helped Heather get her “fierce” on in hopes of grabbing Nicks attention?  Sing with me “They’re the three best friends that anyone could have!  They’re the three best friends that anyone could have!”…

Like in Reflection, Reaction had me on my seat the entire read.  I needed to know if Heather and Nick would finally be together, or if it was too late for them.  It broke my heart every time Heather put her heart out there for Nick to see, and just see if get crushed time after time.  I’ll be honest with you.  I heart Nick.  Like, literally heart him!  But there were moments in this book where I said through unshed tears “Stop being a jerk, you jerk!  It’s not her fault that she was in a come!  Give her some benefit of the doubt you jack nut! Arghhhhh!”  Truer words were never said.

Author, Jessica Roberts, does what she does best.  Grab the attention and heart of the reader, and take them on an unforgettable rollercoaster ride of emotions.  One minute I was sad, the next I’m laughing, then I’m anxious, and back to sad.

In Reaction, we get to see more of the real side of Heather, and why I love her character.  Her ability to roll with the punches, to never stop believing, how she can be strong when her world is shattering all around her.  Such a beautiful role model for girls everywhere.

What did I learn in this book?  Never give up hope when it comes to true love.  Grab it, hold on to it, and should it not end how you wished it would, it is a story worth remembering.  Now run!  Grab your copy and find out what happens with Nick and Heather.  Do eeeet!
