October Breezes by: Maria Rachel Hooley
Published: Self
Available: Ebook, Paperback
1st in series

Skye Williams knows everything there is to know about mistrust: Dad skipped out when she was five. And now Warren Jacobs tries to sweep her Mom off her feet. But Warren's not the only concern rocking Skye's world. Devin Abbott, a guy she's known since kindergarten, has changed. He's become a tall, broad-shouldered guy she might date-if he wasn't her best friend. Skye swears there's nothing between them, but everyone else thinks differently. Devin doesn't act the way he used to, especially when Kellin Jacobs, senior quarterback, asks Skye out. Flattered, she accepts, and, Devin sulls up-and he isn't the only one. Kellin's best friend, Tyler Rutherford, gets bent out of shape, too, as he's always wanted Skye for himself. When Kellin and Skye attend one of Tyler's famous parties, neither senses the impending disaster that will change not only her life but also that of everyone who loves her.

October Breezes made me lose all my sleep last night..but was it worth it? Of course. October Breezes touches on some very..well touchy subjects. Now I would imagine for an author to write about these touchy subjects they would have to be much more careful with their writing and keep it tasteful..and can I just say that Maria Rachel Hooley does an amazing job at this? I could not put this book down! The story starts with Skye, Skye is a normal 16 yr old girl, but she has trust issues with men...and why shouldn’t she? Her father dipped out of her life when she was a child...he never even sees her now..and now she has her moms new boyfriend Warren trying to come into her and her moms life..saying he is different but Skye knows better..or does she? As if her moms boy troubles aren’t enough Skye's best guy friend Devin is starting to act very strange, ever since handsome quarterback Kellin asks Skye out..and she says yes. Devin doesn’t trust him and their friendship slowly falls apart....soon enough Skye will find out Devin and Kellin are the least of her worries..Kellins 'best friend' Tyler wants her too..and he's wanted her for awhile..and Devin nor Kellin are gonna stop him from getting what he wants.

This book was very beautifully and pleasantly written, I found myself drawn in by Skye, you couldn't help but feel sorry for her for all of her horrible events happening lately, you honestly just wish you could be there and give her a freaking hug, and punch all her enemies in the face. I loved all of the characters, they were all very well developed threw out the story, they all grew which was nice to see, Devin and Kellin and Jimmy I especially loved, they were so cute sounding and so sweet to Skye and just wanted to help her.

The ending to this book did not disappoint and I look forward to reading Summer Sunsets and hearing more about Skye and Devin's relationship threw Devin's eyes (:

-COMPLAINT: Skye in the very rude..and obnoxious..and annoying..I am so glad she changed her attitude or I probably wouldn't wanna pickup the second one..I have already bought the second one (:
-PS: This book is REALLY cheap on Amazon Kindle! Great Price for an even greater book!!
