Reflection

By Jessica Roberts
Release Date: February 17, 2012
289 pages

Summary from Goodreads:


Bright, spunky Heather Robbins has escaped her small hometown and is anxiously beginning her freshman year of college. Rising above her rocky childhood, she’s found a place where good things are finally starting to happen: her own private apartment, refreshing college classes, and an intense attachment to a mysterious and rugged classmate, Nick Richards.



But when her dreamy college life turns out to be nothing more than a wonderful dream while resting in a coma, questions threaten.


Now, Heather must press forward to unlock the real past, and find the answers buried deep in her mind. What she unlocks instead is a roller coaster ride through flashbacks, embellished memories, and a whirlwind romance.

And when it’s all over and she comes face to face with the truth, will she lose everything she’s fallen in love with?





Reaction: Reflection #2
By Jessica Roberts
Release Date: November 6, 2012

Book Description:
(Spoilers if you haven't read Reflection!)

Harmony…  

I’ve previously had that in my life, but only once, briefly, a while ago.  It was during the time I’d started my first year of college.  My own apartment, a new old car, and a life free of deadbeat stepfathers, all of which was fulfilling enough.  But if it wasn’t, I also had a best friend, soul mate, and boyfriend all in one.  Yes, life was near perfect.

But one stormy night can change everything…

For many months I rested in a prolonged sleep, fighting for my life.  Well, more than fighting for it, also dreaming of it.  Dreaming of him.  Thank goodness, the dream is over and I’m back in the real world now.  And all I want is for everything to return to the way it was.  But nothing’s the same; most of all, us.

Once again, I find myself at the crossroads of a ruthless battle, this time not for life, but love.  Do I fight for the guy I twice fell for, or do I let her take him away?

Review
(There will be Spoilers if you have not read Reflection yet!)

Oh my goodness, first let me say, it was just wonderful to come back to Heather's and Nick's story because I remember reading Reflection, and towards the end, there are just so much realizations on Heather's part because she realizes that she has been in a Coma for almost three years, and her boyfriend, the love of her life, had no idea she was in a Coma, and thought of some silly theory that she ran away to get married to Heather's best friend, Creed. Oh. My. Word. Really? Well, because of that theory, Nick was actually deeply hurt and heartbroken and it wasn't an easy three years without Heather, but in that last year, he ended up meeting a nice girl (he thinks) and actually proposed to Paige, (NO!!) Yeah, so you can just imagine how Heather feels when she wakes up and weeks later, learns about this, and she is just shocked that Nick would move on like that, and as Heather is going back to College, trying to go back to the way things were, it's just hard, because Nick's not there with her...he's with Paige and it's hurting Heather so much, and now as she continues to live her life, does she let Nick back in? Or does she let him go...forever.

This was phenomenal! I loved Reflection and Reaction was just as wonderful. Instead of Heather recalling memories, she is now living her life again, with some memories here and there, that pop up in her mind. I felt there was strong character development with Heather, and especially Nick. I was just amazed on how much emotion/feeling he shows Heather. At times it's just beautiful and then other times I just wanted to smack his arm, because in ways, Nick took a hard toll when he 'thought' Heather had deserted their relationship and Heather is just like 'Whoa, I was unconscious for almost three years, geez!!" Well that's what I felt anyway when reading their scenes together ;) Anyway, I felt there was a great flow, and reading from Heather's POV was really nice and I felt for her, all the time, because she starts out as who she was when she was 18, but as the story goes she matures to the 21-22 year old she is and gains remarkable strength, and it was great reading how she does that. 

Now, I don't want to say too much, because I feel you have to read this, to just grasp the beautiful writing, the incredible story, and just so much more. Jessica Roberts is one truly amazing Author and it's just been awesome reading her first two novels, so you can say I'm a big fan of hers now, and look forward to her next story! :)

My Rating: 4.7/5
I say a PG-13 Rating

  1. They sound like really good reads. I love the color for 'Reaction'. Something about the green sets the pensive mood, I think.
