    Slow Twitch. Liz Reinhardt. Review from Jeannie Zelos Book revi

    Slow Twitch. Liz Reinhardt.

    Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
    I enjoy a foray into YA sometimes – the emotion and drama from all that teen/early twenties angst is satisfying :) and loving the authors mentioned, Tammara Webber and Abbi Glines I thought I’d try this.
    I'd read the Amazon samples of the first two novels, and found it relatively easy to pick up the story from there. Much of this book is played out in the form of flashbacks via different characters memories. That worked well, giving answers to questions I imagine were brought up in earlier books. I enjoy looking at a scene from different viewpoints, and loved the way in this book the secrets were slowly revealed and explained so much of the behaviour of each character. Brenna is quite a complex character – still very find of and close to Saxon and has had a past relationship with him, but she's In Love with his brother Jake. I could understand the jealousies each felt, Brenna is a terrific but troubled person. Jake – he's a sweetheart, loves Brenna but still finding his feet within his family with whom he's recently been reunited. Jenna is in Ireland when he first meets them, and he's subjected to some temptation in the form of a girl whose set her sights on him. Jenna is busy working, mulling over the past and present, and they have to content themselves with phone conversations til they're able to meet again.

    Jake and Saxons family – what a bunch of posers...I can see just how Saxon got himself into such problems, there's no real family relationship. No loving, supportive relatives, just ones who've decided to cut him lose with the threat of permanent cut off if he doesn’t clean up. His aunt who he stays with is perfect, just what he needs, an adult role model who is supportive but not pushy, showing him love without strings. Then there's Cadence, she's the daughter of the family who own the café he's been sent to for the summer. She knows of his bad reputation, and they get off to a bad start. As Saxon gets to know her he learns all isn't rosy in her life either. Its a novel full of young adults with problems in both home and relationships, and gradually it all pulls together into a satisfying conclusion.
    It was a fun read, but more a tying up of ends opened in earlier books rather than proving the drama I needed. There was drama and angst, just not really as deep as I expected. Overall it was a fun read but not one I’d read again. It felt a little too YA for me – but for the right age group I’d guess its spot on delivering what they want. At £2.14 for 528 pages its fantastic value though.
    Stars: three and a half.
