REVIEW - Kill Devil Hills (Kill Devil Hills #1) by Sarah Darlington
Release Date: 5 August 2014
He’s twenty-four. She’s eighteen.
His life is exactly the way he’s always wanted it to be...stable.
She’s quite possibly the very definition of unstable.
Noah saved her.
Georgina never wanted to be saved.
Growing up, Noah Clark was passed from one relative to the next until he finally ended up living with his abusive, alcoholic uncle in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Thanks in part to the unwavering love and support of his best friend, Ellie Turner, Noah survived those years, escaped his uncle, and grew into the man he is today. Now he runs his own business and lives a pretty normal, no-nonsense life—one where he maintains a high level of control.
Georgina is Ellie’s younger sister. Four months ago, Noah saved Georgie’s life, but he thought that was where his involvement with his friend’s sister would end. Now Georgie has returned home from the recovery facility her parents sent her away to and Noah, still haunted by the night that connects them, can’t stop himself from continuously trying to protect this girl he barely knows. But is he willing to give up all of the control he’s worked so hard to build in his life and risk everything for her? Even more importantly, would she do the same for him?
My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
This book has been really well written and covers a subject that can be difficult to write about, let alone read about. However i think that the author covered the topic of almost suicide really well and compassionately.
Georgina is a troubled young woman who after the death of her only brother, took things very hard, but it is her oldest sisters best friend Noah that finds her.
Noah also has his own issues of anxiety in which he often ends up cleaning to calm himself down. However after the sucicide attempt, Noah can't get Georgina out of her mind, and when she comes back he finds that he still cannot get her out of his head.
The chemistry between the two starts from the very night that she is back home and they both compliment each other and end up being just the person each needs to get over their ordeals and to just feel themselves and comfortable again.
Two really well thought out and written characters.
