Inspiring Fridays is a post I've created to add something a little different to my blog. It's purpose is simple. Each week, it is my intention to feature a book, a song or a movie which inspires me. If you like, you can join in or just leave a comment below. I would love to see your thoughts on whatever is currently spotlighted, or discover what inspires you.
This weeks Inspiring Friday is...
(Contours of the Heart #1)
When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she's single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a class for the first time in her life.
Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex's frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night - but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.
When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he's hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.
After a long while where the only books I read were Paranormal / Fantasy, I came across a review of Easy which caught my interest and literally compelled me to read it. Not totally convinced though, I decided to borrow it from my local library before purchasing it. I was not even a quarter way through before I realized that this was a book which needed to be on my shelf, and so, I immediately went out and bought my own copy. I have since read many contemporary novels. Some I have enjoyed, some not so much. Easy will always remain a solid favourite. It was the book which inspired me to broaden my reading choices.
