If you enjoy angsty contemporary romance, then this book should be right up your alley. Lots of sexual tension, lots of romance, and plenty of tear your heart out moments. Really good read! Looking forward to reading more by this author.
I had the pleasure of reading this book from the get go. I fell in love with Haley as soon as she stepped off the greyhound with her old nike duffle bag. Kyler is amazingly hot and you are instantly drawn into falling in lust with him from the very start. We learn so much about these characters as they journey to let go of their pasts. It's not an easy thing to do, and sometimes it requires the right person coming into your life to tug ya along.
Haley and Kyler are each others saving grace. I'm I had the pleasure of reading this book from the get go. I'm so excited that everyone will soon be able to meet them and fall in love with this book just as I have. Mommy guess what Prince Charming really does exist and his name is Kyler King. He's so handsome and really smart and very broken but he does and says the sweetest things and I'm pretty sure that I'm in love with him.
Do Fairytale's exist? If they did this would be one of them The only thing truly missing was the wicked stepmother, queen or evil person that all fairytale's seem to have.

I could say that role was filled by "fear". A very real fear for Haley Martin and Kyler King. Haley's young life has been torn apart in more ways then one. She's a college student now but her past haunts her and her fears make her run to find a new life and move on.
But Haley finds that moving on and shutting people out isn't truly the best way to handle things. When she runs into Kyler King on the very first day at her new school she's struck by how handsome he is.

Fate has more in store for Haley then she realizes after this chance meeting. Kyler King is a campus playbook and everyone knows it. Kyler's has quite the reputation on campus. Kyler too is running desperately from his past, forcing himself to detach from any real relationships out of "fear".
Meeting Haley had changed him in some way and no matter how hard he tries to fight the undeniable connection to her, he can't quite shake his feeling about her. I was instantly sucked in by this book from the minute that it started I couldn't put the thing down it was hard to go to sleep knowing that there was more to read. Kyler truly is a prince. Despite his past and his faults I was smitten with him from the very beginning of this book.
The connection between Kyler and Haley was a beautiful thing to watch. Their tragic pasts draw them together in a way that they don't know or understand.
The Upside of Letting Go by Nacole Stayton
Once you see what their secrets are you will want to hug them both and squeeze them. There were times when I wanted to hug and comfort them both and tell them it was ok that things happen for a reason and you will get through this. Their love is so speical and their pasts so similar that you just know deep down that it has to work out for these two, they deserve nothing less then the fairytale. Then the moment comes When the "past" collides with the present let me just tell you it is a jaw dropping, complete OMG did that just happen moment.
I couldn't believe what I was reading but just moments before it I had a sinking feeling what was coming and it still smacked me in the face. At this point in the book you will be left feeling confused and concerned for all parties involved And after you recover in a few paragraphs and start to except what just happened then your smacked in the face with yet another OMG did that just happen moment Ok there are a few more after this but this second one rips at your heart strings Dear Lord one moment I was in shock the next moment I'm crying The events that happen after that aren't any less emotional or crazy I can't tell you how it ended or even tell you my feelings about the ending, because you'd scream at me that I ruined the story You'll have to see for yourself on the 20th!
Nacole weaves a crazy but beautiful journey about love, loss, self acceptance and forgiveness.
This is one of those books that when you start reading it you just know that it is going to be a good one. I have no doubt that readers will be rushing to get this read when it comes out. For a first book by this author I have to say I cannot wait to see what she writes next.
I gladly give this book 5 star stamp of approval Slow down! That's a very fitting advise for the author. I felt like Haley was ranting throughout the entire book and as such I didn't get much depth or emotions from anyone. It was all so rushed. I know I read a book sometimes and I really want to get to the meat of the matter but the anticipation is what blows it out of the water.
I admire the authors projection of being straight forward and to the point but i gotta be like put the brakes on that just one minute! Like allow me to process A befor Slow down! Like allow me to process A before moving on to B. It was like being in a sprint. You got no time to process much and very frequently I move from the middle of a serious situation into 3 weeks or months later with a summary of all that took place. The book span over maybe a 4 or 5 years period and it still felt like she just stepped off the bus to me.
I don't know where anything started or where it ended. The potential to be a wonderful story was there but it was smashed by the urgency of everything! There was so much going on with no depth and no structure. I don't know when they decide they like each other, when they decide they wanted more.
I just know one minute she runs in him, the next he is carrying her and couple hours later he has his tongue down her throat. It's like listening to a record playing in slow fast forward. I honestly can't pinpoint a character to say "Hey I loved this one!

However, I believe major potential was present if the opportunity was given. I can say Lucy's character was a good one and I would have loved to see much more development on her part as she had a little fire that just needed a little fanning to blaze! The connection Haley and Kyler hated his name btw shared was a little extreme if you ask me but I get where it help and it grew on me a little. The humour and steamy sex level in this one was a steamy 0 and boy did the opportunities arrive. I hardly believed most of the emotions the characters professed and I was utterly shocked as to Haley's career path.
I swear based on her past she would have one up to try and find a cure or something. School was pretty non existent in this one and due to the rush I have no clue what happened where, just a big blop dropped on us in the end sort of like a summary I actually loved Jude's character and believe he brought so much to this one, much more than the main characters. I was actually pissed with his outcome as for an author who believed in happy endings, Jude seems to get an ass kicking from life often!
It's safe to say that this was a very good story with a lot of every day occurrences and very good messages, wrapped up with a good plot and a lot of potential.

If only it was rewritten with a lot more passion and some one pressed pause to slow it down a little and cut out the unnecessary segments fry chicken scene , it could have been a good one! Nacole Stayton has hit the mark with her debut novel. Their journey is not an easy one but Nacole really lets you feel that without it being overly heavy.
inrearsime.tk The story is fast paced, but does not leave feeling as if you missed something. I really enjoyed the way she balanced internal dialogue, the dialogue between characters and Haley's flashbacks. Haley Martin is a spunky, smart ass Jersey girl that knows how to stand up for herself. After suffering a tragic loss, she decides to leave New Jersey to transfer to Alabama for her second year of college.
