So many of my fellow book buddies LOVED this series BIG TIME. In fact, it was frequently included in the “Reader Favorites TOP 2016” lists. I’m hearing super angsty, heartachey, funny and unputdownable!
Fabi: I’m at 17% of Kick, Push and I have to tell y’all how great it is. I’m laughing, I’m crying, my heart hurts good and then it hurts bad. I am head over heels in love with Joshua. I was even reading parts of it out loud to my daughter last night just because I HAD to share some of the funniest parts. This is heartwarming and heartbreaking all in one. Beautiful, just beautiful.
Allison: I loooooved Kick, Push. Heart wrenching. I was NOT expecting the cliffie. But I felt like it wasn’t awful. It was the tyoe of ending where I was glad it was over because my emotions needed a break. I really needed to stop crying. My husband really needed me to stop crying. Lol. And I felt like it ended wrapped up enough that I wasn’t tortured by the cliffie.
Grey: It’s 230 in the morning here…just finished Kick, Push… I have very mixed feelings on this book… Warning, it’s a cliffy! Mostly male POV… Did I mention a cliffy?!? It made me giggle and made me cry… There was a super triggery chapter in there too…for those that may be more sensitive than me. I think my emotions may be a little skewed after Tristan and Danika in Rock Bottom today… Oh, and guess what…it’s a f***ing cliffhanger!!! Gah, I’m taking Manny back into the blanket fort. I legitimately have done nothing but read all day… Night friends!
Carly: Kick, Push & Coast are definitely some of my top top top reads. Although I just remembered I technically haven’t finished Coast yet.*Sigh* It’s still gonna be a fave, I can tell. I’d love to be able to experience reading those for the first time again.
Tessa: Oh! Coast. I have to say, Kick, Push paired with Coast makes a super emotional journey. It was one big roller coaster. I was sad; I was angry. I was happy and them swoon. It was intense. Loved it!
About Kick, Push:
There’s a single defining moment within every skater.
It lasts only a second. Two if you’re good.
Three if you’re really good.
It’s the moment you’re in the air, your board somewhere
beneath you, and nothing but wind surrounds you.
It’s the feeling of being airborne.
The sixteen-year-old version of me would’ve said it was the
greatest feeling in the world.
Then at seventeen, I had my son.
And every single second became a defining moment. Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us.
Seventeen. Single. Dad.
That’s what my life became.
Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being
Or at least I convinced myself I did.
But I lied—to myself and to everyone around me.
Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds.
You know what sucks about being in the air?
Coming down from the high.
Sometimes you land on the board and nail the trick.
Then kick, push, and coast away.
Other times you fall.
You fall hard.
And those are the times when it’s not as easy to get back up, dust off your pads and try again.
Especially when the girl with the emerald eyes becomes your drug…
And you become her poison.
