Spotlight: All My Life by Rucy Ban


4.5 Stars



Seventeen-year-old Kari meets Neil Mars. “Neil as in Armstrong and Mars…as in Bruno.” A boy who beats every vampire, werewolf, highlander fantasy Kari has ever had. But she knows she can’t get close to him. Not ever. Because that would mean telling him everything. Coming clean. And Kari can’t bear the idea of changing the way Neil looks at her. Like she’s the only girl in the world. His reverence is something too precious to lose. Perhaps even at the cost of losing him. But Kari doesn't know why Neil calls her his ‘Angel’ and when she finds out, she realizes what love is all about. Boundless joy, unending longing and a fuckload of heartache.

My Review:

Let me start off with telling you I just Loved this story. It was original and had some turns that I did NOT see coming. It was truly a very attention grabbing book and I am so honored to have gotten the chance to read it and share how much I adored it with you. It deserves the High Ratings that it gets. This story follows a young woman who has a secret. A secret that horrible and just infuriates and breaks your heart all at once. But she is surviving. She is pushing day to day counting the time till her nightmare is over. This is where we meet Kari. She is enduring this and trying to find a way to live her life to the fullest she can. Enter Neil. Tall, Dark, & Most certainly Handsome. I know, I know it sounds like THAT story, but its really not. Kari may seem like the girl that needs to be saved, but give her a chance. She will surprise the heck out of you. Neil keeps popping up in her life, and despite how she wants to feel, Kari is extremely attracted to him. ( I mean really, as long as it takes her to realize it I am begging for him to turn my way! Can we say Perfect? ) Slowly but surely Kari starts to lose her will and fall for him. With falling for him she grows closer and he is inevitably exposed to her past. The one she is trying to escape. This is THAT story. No, not THAT one, the boy save girl yadda yadda yadda. This is the one that Grabs you from the first page and you just can't seem to put the book down till you find out the ending. Or, at least that is how it was for me. I couldn't get enough. I feel blessed that Rucy asked me to read it. It was a honor. It was well written and an amazing story in itself. Very original. The Characters were Extremely lovable in this book as well. They were the type of characters that stay with you for a long time. Even the supporting ones were fully developed and you really got to know them. I felt like a part of the family reading this book. You feel all the emotions they go through in this book. Parts of it I swear I had to stop so I wouldn't break down in tears for what was happening. In other parts I was literally laughing out loud. On-Lookers more than likely think I belong in treatment somewhere for how many times I yelled at my Ipad. It is that type of a book. You are invested in the characters and their stories. A Truly GREAT read. To Top it all Off? Only $.99!!! Go & Get it guys!!! *I received this ARC in return for an honest review*
