REVIEW: "Rash Decisions" by Alex Rosa (Contemporary Romance)

by Alex Rosa

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: February 7th 2017

Standalone: Yes

Description from Publisher:
Julia Ferris had it all: a loving a boyfriend, a glamorous city, and a high paying job. What more could a girl want? She’d ask you, “What if all those things weren’t what you wanted … ever?”

Julia’s life has always been defined by everyone around her, but one day she makes the rash decision to finally live life for herself, and it all started with a pair of shoes. Now it becomes her only guide.

From new jobs to new boys, and a life in a big city she was never prepared for, she can at least admit one thing now:

It’s all exactly what she wants … kind of.

My Rating:
Heat Rating:

I like Troy and Julia together and think it has been fun seeing them fight with each other while they fought their attraction to one another. The way they toy with each other adds a real element of fun.

Lizzy is a sweet addition, but I feel like her age must have changed a few times because she is referred to as a "toddler" once or twice (a 7-year-old isn't a toddler), and her appendages are referred to as chubby in a toddler way several times, while otherwise she sounds like her actual age.

I hadn't realized that this was a love triangle book until that was evident in the story. Love triangles and cheating aren't really my thing, but this was a nice enough read I kept going (also being invested enough at that point).

A bit predictable here and there, but, some awkward phrasing aside, very well-written. The characters are interesting and vivid, the chemistry undeniable, and the story fun.

My Source: I received a digital ARC from the publisher to voluntarily review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is unbiased and my 100% own.
