REVIEW: Lighter by Gia Riley


Title:  Lighter

Author:  Gia Riley

Synopsis:  What do you do when you can’t save the one you love?

Sophie can’t survive without control. Growing up with an alcoholic father, she craves the discipline of gymnastics. Feeling lost on a brand new college campus, she lets loose for the first time in her life. But with freedom comes consequences. Is one night everything she hopes? Or will she become her own worst nightmare?

Kipton’s one year away from graduation. He’s never thought beyond a one night stand until meeting his sister’s new roommate. Finally setting his sights on the girl he can’t resist, he’s more determined than ever when she won’t give in to his persuasions. He’s always gotten the girl, and he’s not about to give up without a fight.

Will Sophie be able to salvage her dreams and wage a war against her own vices? Can she finally let love in? Or will history repeat itself causing her to self-destruct?

Lighter isn’t your typical college romance. Darkness suffocates, dreams are dashed, and battles are lost. Love takes on a whole new meaning.

This book should be on everyone’s to be read list because it is that awesome! Absolutely beautiful writing style with characters that leave their mark on your heart!

Kipton is never one to give up easy though! And so begins their journey. And oh what a journey it is! There were twists and turns that I never saw coming and gah my heart broke for Sophie and Kipton too!

This is just an all around fantastic book that I’m glad I got the chance to review!
