EskieMama Reads Review: Called Up by Jen Doyle
by Jen Doyle
There's one thing Max "Deke" Deacon can always count on besides his old high school teammates: Angelica "Fitz" Hawkins. But no matter how much Deke might secretly fantasize otherwise, a relationship with his best friend's sister is off limits. Until one unexpectedly smoldering encounter has Deke and Fitz giving in to the feelings they've both been fighting for far too long.
Fitz knows for a fact that it is not better to have loved and lost. After losing her parents, she'd rather lock up her heart and throw away the key than endure that kind of pain again. If that means giving up any hope of a lasting relationship, then so be it.
But with Deke, Fitz feels dangerously close to falling in love. She can't risk another broken heart—especially if it means losing one of her best friends for good. Now it's up to Deke to convince her that the safest place she could ever be is right here with him.
Review: 4 Stars
The story was a at times sad and at times funny, to see Deke and Fritz battle over their feelings was a lesson well remembered, Fritz had ghost that would shake any one up, the loss of her parents and then at the instigation of so called friends Fritz is set upon. Deke her best friend in the world, Nash her brother and Dorrie all figure quite well in the story that tracks them from High School to adulthood and their feelings and what it takes to let the past go and to have faith in each other
I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review!
