Great job by this new Indie Author Which happens to be my wife I don t generally read books, especially of this genre But how could I not read my wife s first book Started yesterday morning and completed it today No spoilers allowed, my wife says But all I can say is that it s a great love story of a couple that goes through it till the end.
A Changed Life was not what I was expecting at all This was a gut wrenching tragic story with a HEA.This book amazed me from beginning to end I didn t know what to expect especially seeing multiple POV s through out the whole story I see why the author did that and it made sense because at first I was a little confused Simon Paulson has became one of my 1 book boyfriend He was there for Nickel and never left her side I kept some of my book marks out so I wouldn t give away too much spoilers Thi [...]

3.5 StarsThere was not a dull moment in the story It took me awhile to get used to the writing style and some of conversations between the characters felt forced awkward This made it hard for me to connect to Nicholette The story was interesting, but I felt the characters feelings were forced I understood where the author was going and trying to show Nicholette was independent and adjusting to her new home and life in California Sometimes, I just want to feel what the characters feelings and not [...]

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review The main reason for the 3 star review is that I felt blindsided by a few of the events, and even though I ended up being okay with them and read to the end, I felt it was needed to say that if you have triggers to sensitive material will note in the spoilers , please don t read this It hurts my heart to say it, as it is a good book, but it may not be the book for you Another small reason I couldn t give this a higher rating, was that although t [...]

This book was sad but inspiring I can not even imagine what that was like, being raped by someone It was amazing how Nicolette pushed through her hard times and how she became stronger from this experience It really shows how hard it can be to experience something like being raped and how with time and love you can get through it The past may never go away but it will still make you a better person There is a saying I heard and that is Forgive and forget what has hurt you in the past, but never [...]

Life can change in an instant and switch up the path you are on in life Nicolette s life did just that How can a girl not love Simon, a guy who wears his heart on his sleeve At times I knew where things were going to go making the story predictable, but sometimes I like a read that I don t need to think, is sweet and makes you believe in love It was a sweet love story and a decent read.

A Changed Life definitely is an amazing story Nicolette moves to California at the beginning of her senior year which is a very hard change for any teenager She had to move from a place where she grew up her whole life and leave all her friends she had known her whole life just to leave them and be uprooted to a new place where she knew absolutely nobody One day at a party her parents forced her to go to she met two guys that are both unique in their own ways Michael is the first guy she meets a [...]
I was intrigued by the synopsis of this book and eager to start reading Initially, I had some difficulty getting into the story The writing was somewhat choppy and Nicolette was a bit too wishy washy for me It seemed to me on several occasions that she felt or said one thing and then quickly did the opposite or backed down without much prompting This seemed especially true when it came to Michael, who I immediately disliked I m sure that was the point, but I wanted her to be stronger in the face [...]
Given by the author for an honest review for her Blog TourIt was not what I expected it to beThe story had a nice flow and it was written remarkably.So, the writing is very goodI also consider it to be a quality readHowever, there was too much going onThere were too many POVs that were leaving me confused,especially when the transition from one POV to another wasn t done properlyI just felt like everything was too muchWhen things were good,they were too goodWhen things got ugly,they were too ugl [...]
I was debating between rating this a 3 or 4 star read, but the over all message feel of the book pushed it to a solid 4 for me A Changed Life really is the most appropriate and fitting title for Ms Wasowski s debut novel It s a heart wrenching story of obsession, tragedy, and finding the strength courage within yourself to change and move on I was immediately impressed with this cast of characters They are definitely much older wiser than their mere 18 years would lead you to believe Defying the [...]
J s Review This book was a than just a story about finding love and getting your happily ever after This book was a journey Nicolette and her family moved to California to pursue her parents dream At first she was very angry to have been forced away from her home in Chicago so close to her eighteenth birthday and leaving her family and friends behind Starting a new school at the beginning of her senior year wasn t something she wanted to do While attending a party with her parents she meets Mic [...]
This was a wonderful 4.5 Star read for me You think you understand the title of the story, but until you read it, you can t even begin to realize its powerful meaning A Changed Life indeed I read the sample on and after 2 pages I was hooked and 1 clicked like faster than I can even say 1 click I had moments where I was ready for some angst and when I was, it was like Mary was in my head and boy oh boy does she deliver You will get into a percentage of the story where she just plows you with on [...]

Honestly I am not a big fan of books that the characters are high school kids With that said I did feel like these kids were mature beyond their year s maybe it s because they live in Hollywood and have rich families This book is about making new friends, finding love dealing with tragedy and how your life can change in a second and that is exactly what happened to Nicolette Michael is the son of a business partner with her parents and she decides she doesn t like him from the beginning and the [...]

The beginning was hard to get through, but once you hit 40% it s a quick read, I loved the ending and how everything worked out but some of the stuff in the beginning was harder to believe, I know it s not real but the way some of the characters acted and the way the characters talked at times was awkward But I wanted to give this book a chance and once I finished it I liked the rest of the book a lot The kindle edition definitely needs editing, lots of spelling, grammatical and other errors, w [...]
