Blog Tour + Giveaway : Love and Relativity by Rachael Wade

Love and Relativity by Rachael Wade 
Publication date: December 12th 2012
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


Love, life, and happily ever after? It’s all relative.

Marine biology student Emma Pierce lives in paradise—geographically speaking, anyway. Stranded on Sanibel Island, Florida, she works at a nursing home by day and spends her nights dodging the island’s infamous bad boy, Jackson Taylor, at her favorite karaoke bar. Trying to heal from the loss of her sister and a failed relationship she rerouted her life for, she’s ready to graduate and finally leave Florida behind.

When a run-in with Jackson and his rowdy crew goes sour at the bar one night, sparks fly and irreversible damage is done. It’s no secret that Jackson loves to get underneath her skin, but this time he’s gone too far. Now all he wants is to earn her forgiveness before she’s gone for good, but their ideas of closure—and the future—are enough to keep them worlds apart.



This was a first read for me from Rachael Wade and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Some of the characters from her Preservation series are seen in this book, for all you fans out there!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it had a little bit of everything that I love in a story. Emma had a lot to overcome, the constant grief from her sister's death, working towards living out her dream, letting her walls come down for a certain someone.

Jackson, well what can I say, he loves the ladies! Me saying that it got himself into trouble more than once, seems silly, but it's so very true, especially when it came to Emma. I loved that we saw the other side of Jackson, he's a care-free, charming man and he genuinely cares about Emma. But she just seems to fail to see that.

Eventually she figures it out and that's where things get interesting. I liked their friendship/relationship it a lot. It seemed like a very realistic relationship, which is what I love reading about in books. All the situations is easily relatable. The one thing that kind of ticked me off was the constant game of push and pull, towards the end ... it seriously toys with the emotions there. Of course, there was a reason for why that was happening, but it was just too much. My emotions couldn't handle ...

Well, I loved the story and there's so much to learn from it. It's easily relatable and I love that aspect. Thankfully this can be read as a standalone, so for all of you out there who have read the Preservation Series, read this one, you'll like it!
