review || CHASING CRAZY { blog tour } by Kelly Siskind



Forever Yours | January 12, 2016 | New Adult Romance


Dear Mom & Dad, I dropped out of school. I'm going backpacking. Sorry. Love you both. 

At nineteen, Nina has endured two lifetime's worth of humiliation. Tired of waiting for it to get better, she decides to get going-across the globe to New Zealand. There she soon faces what she most fears: a super sexy guy ready to be Nina's next mistake.

Once Sam's life was all about having fun. That was before the accident. Now his friends have bailed and his world is broken. But when a gorgeous girl on his flight looks at him with passion instead of pity, Sam feels his old self coming back to life.

Now traveling together, Nina and Sam know this isn't just a fling. They're falling fast, hard, and deep. More than anything, Sam wants Nina to forget her fears. But to help her do that he must reveal his own painful secret-and risk Nina never seeing him the same way again.

Needing a change, Nina takes a leave of absence from her life -- choosing to backpack New Zealand. There, she meets Sam, who he too is needing a change from his life. Both of our characters embrace change as they travel with one another, learning to move on from disappointments in life as well as learn to trust in another person again. Their story was equal parts sweet and heartbreaking, but the true adult moment for them is the last chapter -- not epilogue, but chapter. I found that with the decisions made throughout the story, it was the end that truly solidified their relationship. I loved Nina's growth -- even with something as simple as using her given name (Pininfarina). She was spunky and feisty, and her inner commentary was fun to read. Nina and Sam's story was a cute one that any fan of the genre could fall for.
