My Review of Embracing Life by Nicky Jayne

Moving to San Diego was supposed to be a fresh start for Melanie. 3 years of sun and sand and she would be heading to college. 
No matter how far she went her nights were still tormented by his face. But her days were filled with another type of torment Josh! 
The eager young lacrosse player who wanted nothing more than to claim her heart as his.
Their friendship bloomed but as quickly as it started a traumatic event ended it. 
Friends have kept them apart. 
Thinking it would be the best for both of them.
Sadly there are just some things in life that you can not run away from. They always find you in the end.
Will they find each other? Will Josh be able to save Melanie from her past as well as herself?

My Review:
3.5 Stars

First let me start off by saying that I did enjoy this novella. The story was intriguing and had a way of pulling you in. 

The story for the most part is about Melanie. If you pay careful attention to the little bit we learn about her in the beginning of the novella you can guess what she is running from. She is however adopted by two people at school that actually seem to care about her well being. There is one person though that she can't quite seem to figure out. That person is Josh. Her friends however have made it their mission to keep them apart. 

The story evolves nicely, but what I didn't see coming was the unexpected ending. The novella ended very suddenly leaving me quite confused. Although I cannot wait for the next installment I am hoping that the ending of the next will flow better.
