  • In Another Life #ARC Review



    What would you do if your whole life was a lie and learning the truth could cost you your life?
    From New York Times bestselling author of the Shadow Falls series comes C. C. Hunter’s new YA thriller about a girl who learns that she may have been kidnapped as a child, and must race to uncover the truth about her past before she winds up a victim.
    Chloe was three years old when she became Chloe Holden, but her adoption didn’t scar her, and she’s had a great life. Now, fourteen years later, her loving parents’ marriage has fallen apart and her mom has moved them to Joyful, Texas. Starting twelfth grade as the new kid at school, everything Chloe loved about her life is gone. And feelings of déjà vu from her early childhood start haunting her.
    When Chloe meets Cash Colton she feels drawn to him, as though they're kindred spirits. Until Cash tells her the real reason he sought her out: Chloe looks exactly like the daughter his foster parents lost years ago, and he’s determined to figure out the truth.
    As Chloe and Cash delve deeper into her adoption, the more things don’t add up, and the more strange things start happening. Why is Chloe’s adoption a secret that people would kill for?


    Review

    " I wonder if that´s all life really is, just smears of color."

    I knew this writer in This Heart of Mine and I really enjoyed her writing, when I saw her new release I picked up  without even reading the synopsis. When I received and read the synopsis, I was afraid whe I read it was a thriller because I did not like this genre very much, but what was not my surprise when I started reading and realizing that it was more a romance than a thriller. I loved this !

    Chloe had her whole life transformed after a family problem that forced her to move from where she lived. She believed that she has the perfect family, the perfect boyfriend, the perfect friends, the perfect life, but we know that nothing in this world is perfect and she will  discover it at a hard way. On a ride with her father, Chloe bumps into Cash, a serious kid taken from a badboy who implies with her right away.

    Cash had a very hard childhood and locked himself in a shell to protect his heart. From foster home to foster home he closes himself even further. Now he is in  Fullers' home, a grieving family who has lost they young daughter. In this family, he  finds the love, but he resists to it for think taht he does not  deserve love. Upon meeting Chloe, he is intrigued by the girl's resemblance to the biological daughter of the Fullers and begins to approach her to know what exactly  happened with the girl.

    In the midst of a delightful romance, parallel plotting, a certain suspense and tension, CC Hunter creates a plot about acceptance, strength, second chances and love leading the reader to delve into the lives of these characters and cheer to know who Chloe is and what Cash did in the past to be so distressed.

    I really liked the ending chosen for Chloe's mother, I really liked the cover and the plot although I think that at times it got a little repetitive and that the writer could have developed the suspense better.

    4/5 stars

    Resenha

    Conheci esta escritora em This Heart of Mine e gostei muito de sua escrita, quando vi seu novo lançamento peguei na mesma hora sem nem ler a sinopse. Ao receber e ler a sinopse, fiquei receosa por dizer ser um thriller e não curto muito este estilo, mas qual não foi minha surpresa ao começar a ler e perceber que era um romance e não um thriller. Adorei !

    Chloe teve toda sua vida transformada depois de um problema em família que a obrigou a mudar de cidade. Ela acreditava ter a família perfeita, o namorado perfeito, as amigas perfeitas, a vida perfeita, mas nós sabemos que nada neste mundo é perfeito e ela a duras penas irá descobrir isso tambem. Numa saida com o pai, Chloe esbarra em Cash, um garoto sério tirado a badboy que implica com ele logo de cara.

    Cash teve uma infância muito dura e se fechou numa concha para proteger seu coração. De lar adotivo em lar adotivo ele se fecha mais ainda até para no lar dos Fullers, uma família tambem sofrida que perdeu a filha ainda pequena. Nesta família, ele finalmente encontra o amor, mas resiste a ele por não se achar merecedor. Ao conhecer Chloe ,ele fica intrigado cm a semelhança da menina com a filha biológica dos Fullers e começa a se aproximar dela para saber o que realmente pode ter acontecido.

    Em meio a um gostoso romance, tramas paralelas, um certo suspense e tensão, C.C. Hunter cria uma trama sobre aceitação, força, segundas chances e amor levando o leitor a mergulhar na vidas destes personagens e torcer para saber quem é Chloe e o que Cash fez no passado para ser tão angustiado.

    Gostei demais da capa e da trama apesar de achar que em alguns momentos ficou um pouco repetitiva e que a escritora pderia ter desenvolvido melhor o suspense.
    4/5 estrelas
