Review: Kick Push by Jay McLean♥

Friday, January 22, 2016


There’s a single defining moment within every skater.
It lasts only a second. Two if you're good.

Three if you’re really good.
It’s the moment you’re in the air, your board somewhere beneath you, and nothing but wind surrounds you.
It’s the feeling of being airborne.
The sixteen-year-old version of me would’ve said it was the greatest feeling in the world.
Then at seventeen, I had my son.
And every single second became a defining moment. Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us.
Seventeen. Single. Dad.
That’s what my life became.
Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being airborne.
Or at least I convinced myself I did.
But I lied—to myself and to everyone around me.
Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds.
You know what sucks about being in the air?
Coming down from the high.
Sometimes you land on the board and nail the trick.
Then kick, push, and coast away.
Other times you fall.
You fall hard.
And those are the times when it’s not as easy to get back up, dust off your pads and try again.
Especially when the girl with the emerald eyes becomes your drug...
And you become her poison.

My Review

Oh my god. Oh my GOD I need more of this. I never start a review talking about the end of the book but....the end of THIS freggin book!!! My stomach is in knots and there is a ball in my throat. These beautiful, beautiful and complicated characters with their breathtakingly beautiful story that got to me so bad. I loved every single page of this book and I want more of these characters-NEED more of these characters.

The circumstances in this book were so different from anything I've ever read that I often wondered how anything would work out. In the end, it was one of the best books I've read this year (2015). It even had me in tears simply by reading the prologue. This book, this one is a keeper. I would recommend this to anyone and talk about how much I enjoyed this for as long as they let me- because, holy cow, it was amazing. It just was. If you haven't given this book a chance yet, I honestly don't know what you're waiting for.
