 Goodreads Synopsis


I’ve previously had that in my life, but only once, briefly, a while ago. It was during the time I’d started my first year of college. My own apartment, a new old car, and a life free of deadbeat stepfathers, all of which was fulfilling enough. But if it wasn’t, I also had a best friend, soul mate, and boyfriend all in one. Yes, life was near perfect.

But one stormy night can change everything…

For many months I rested in a prolonged sleep, fighting for my life. Well, more than fighting for it, also dreaming of it. Dreaming of him. Thank goodness, the dream is over and I’m back in the real world now. And all I want is for everything to return to the way it was. But nothing’s the same; most of all, us.

Once again, I find myself at the crossroads of a ruthless battle, this time not for life, but love. Do I fight for the guy I twice fell for, or do I let her take him away?

My Review

 Reaction picks up right where Reflection left off.  After waking from a coma, Heather realized everyone and everything has changed.  When she left the hospital, she had to go out and try to get her life back.  Everything came back to her easily.  She went and registered for classes again, went to talk to her old boss, and even went to see Liz.  The only person that didn't come back to her was Nick.  Heather finds out Nick is engaged and getting married in December.  Will Heather fight to get Nick back or will she let him go to find true happiness?  Is she capable of selfless love?

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book.  It was just as good as the first one.  I am already wanting to reread it again, especially my favorite parts.  It just blew me away.  I was captivated from the very first chapter.  I couldn't put it down so I read it in a day.  The story is beautifully written.  I felt like I was right there with the characters rooting them all on.  I laughed, cried, was even jumping up and down.  The book as AMAZING!!!!  The book was just well thought out and well written.  I was able to relate with each and everyone of the characters.  I loved all the characters in this story.  I could see them being my friends if they really existed.  I love watching characters grow throughout books, and character development in this series was well written and well thought out.  

I loved Heather as a character.  After waking from a # year coma, she does whatever she can to get her life back.  She fights for the one she truly loves, Nick.  Her love has truly grown for him, because she dreamed about Nick while she was in her coma.  He is what kept her fighting for her life.  Julia has an internal battle going on.  Does she fight for the one person she can't live without, or does she let him go if he is really happy?  The decision she makes is very admirable.  She is such a strong character.

Nick is my favorite character in this series.  I would marry that man myself so I don't blame her.  He keeps her at arms length though in this one.  He basically tells her there is no chance for them and he is definitely getting married.  But the thing is, he can't seem to quit thinking about her, or finding ways to see her.  She is making him feel again.  It was hard watching him struggle as well.  He was really trying to do what was right. 

I also loved Creed and Liz as well.  These two are true friends.  Creed was there everyday with her while she was in a coma.  He never missed a day.  He always protected her no matter what.  He was her only family..  Liz was a great listener.   Heather could go to her and talk about anything.  Liz also helped her fight for Nick ans stuck up for her when snide comments were made by Paige.  I was definitely happy that both these characters got their happy ending as well.

This book tool me on am emotional roller coaster ride.  It is a heart-wrenching love story that I recommend to everyone!!!  It is one that I will definitely be rereading and continue to reread.  I truly loved it!!!  It was a great end to the series, but I am hoping we get to see more of these characters down the road.
