REVIEW* Myles by Lisa Helen Gray



I’m Kayla Martin...

I was once sweet and innocent, saw the world bright with colour, but now all I see is black and white. He not only ripped my innocence away from me, tortured me and made my life a living hell, but he stole the very soul that made me who I am.

I’m a shell of the girl I once knew.

But it’s all about to change.

I’m ready to face my fear. And that’s going right back to the very place all this started. Grayson High. I’ve had to stay back a year to re-take my exams, back to the halls where students whispered, bullied, and taunted me.

It’s been four years and I’m still trying to perfect the art of faking. It’s easy most of the time. My parents never really cared about me; they just saw the fake smile and assumed everything was fabulous, until he waltzes back into my life.
Myles freaking Carter. My childhood crush. And he sees straight past my fake smiles to the broken girl inside. But what happens when he finds out about the real me...the broken, scared, weak girl?

My biggest fear is on the verge of becoming discovered because he becomes my rock. I'm petrified that he'll find out what I've been hiding from everyone. Will he be able to look me in the eye once he finds out my secret?

****MY REVIEW****
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

Myles is the third book in the Carter Brothers series.
Let me start off by saying that I really love this author and have loved all of her previous books. I will admit that Myles story wasn't my favorite.
I was so excited for Myles after reading what his story was about initially. After reading the story, I thought the story itself was just OK.

What I needed out of the story:
I was really hoping for something different instead of the girl meets guy, girl in distress and needs saving bit. I just kept thinking that this story would have been so much better for me if I could fall in love with the main characters. I did like them don't get me wrong but I couldn't get past that to actually fall head over heels in love with them.

My favorite scene was with Charlie. Charlie broke my heart and this was the part of the story that gutted me the most. I shed a few tears and I honestly felt it for Kayla during this time.
Myles was the tamest of his brothers so far. I liked that he was so patient and kind towards Kayla and her situation.

Overall, I liked the story. The pace of the story for me was a little slow. I think if Lisa had wrote more scenes of what Kayla actually went through this may have turned the story around for me. Again, I feel horrible for not liking this one as much as the others. I do believe the author is very talented. I would like to see the author with a story were the heroine doesn't need rescuing. Sorry!!

****About the Author****

Lisa Helen Gray (1987) born in Birmingham. All Lisa has ever wanted to do in life, apart from be a mother, is to read and write, and at a certain age she wanted to be a princess.We can all dream, right?

Serious note though, she has been a passionate reader ever since her Nan first handed her The Three Gollywogs by Enid Blyton. After that, she lived in a land of fantasy. 
First came Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then Angel, and it went on to Twilight and The Hunger Games. Some would say she is a daydreamer, but she is just a firm believer that there is a happily ever after. Hence, her huge love of romance novels.
She got into reviewing other author’s novels, and then decided to publish her own work. Bringing us to her first novel, If I could I'd wish it all away (2014). 

She always has her head stuck in a romance novel and is often (too often) reminded of this. When she hasn't got her head stuck in a book or writing her next novel, she is glued to the TV series Pretty Little Liars, walking dead, The Originals, The Vampire Diaries and of course, Veronica Mars. Just an ordinary girl surround by extraordinary books
