Sublime Karma
by Peyton Garver

Release Date: November 30th, 2016


When Brie’s stepfather moves the family for what he calls a new beginning, it’s not the new beginning the beautiful, yet guarded, senior would have hoped for. Brie is instantly targeted by jealous girls at her new school, and the only available seat on her bus is next to the school’s star wide receiver, Jake, who for some reason, finds her offensive. After a humiliating article and picture of Brie is posted in the online school journal, a demon she thought she’d overcome resurfaces, and her life unravels. A newly compassionate Jake has finally taken an interest in her, but can Brie learn to trust her heart, or will she miss out on the best thing that ever happened to her?

Jake has his own secrets and has built his own walls, but eventually his curiosity about the new girl gets the best of him. Unfortunately, now there is competition: the captain of her cross-country team. Jake’s romantic histories with the girl next door and the school’s queen bee, adds tension to a simmering tempest when all he wants is Brie. Is he strong enough to help the one he loves weave sense into her crumbling new reality while overcoming his own tainted past?

My Thoughts:

*** I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review***

I gave this book 4 stars. I really enjoyed reading this book, it was a bit slower in the beginning, but once I hit about 20 percent I was hooked and had to read until I finished. I even gave this one priority over a book I’ve been waiting forever for just because I was so captivated by the story. 

The characters are down to earth and relatable. They clicked together so well that you didn’t even have to question their chemistry. The story worked.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the third person perspective, usually I like to be right inside the persons head when I’m reading anything that isn’t fantasy. It helps me a lot with connecting to the plot and the characters. This is probably why I didn’t warm up to the story that quickly. Nonetheless, I got through it and I really enjoyed it.

What I loved was that I wasn’t completely annoyed by the protagonists. I’ms someone who gets annoyed by people very easily, so finding a book where I like all the characters doesn’t happen a ton. They also grew a lot as people in this book, they became better versions of themselves and strive towards improving.

Something else I found relatable about this book was that when the teens would skip school they would get a phone call home. This was also the case for me in school and for some reason I never actually see that happen in books. The teens usually skip school and their parents are none the wiser about it all. 

The downside is that I wish we got more from the ending. I feel like there was a lot of things that were a bit unresolved, especially conflict between certain characters. We never got actual closer where some of those conflicts are concerned. From what I can tell there is no plan for the  author to write a sequel, but maybe there will be a surprise book. One of my bookish pet peeves is when not all the loose ends are tied up. This could just be because I have OCD. 

Overall, if you’re into edgier Teen romances than thesis defiantly a book you would enjoy. Despite having a boat load of angst, it was still a very cute story.
