Reach For Your Light by Ces Creatively – Review


Blurb:

Emma Williams is searching for a new direction. Leaving behind a dead end career and harrowing relationship in London, she makes a fresh start in Bournemouth bonding immediately with flat mate Denzil and enjoying coastal life.

Falling in love with delicious Jeremy White she soon discovers that her new life is not as uncomplicated as she’d hoped. It may look like she has the perfect beach apartment and gorgeous man of her dreams but when visions of a mysterious stranger become reality and manipulating exes are out to cause trouble in paradise, Em just wants to find the truth in a world of deceit.

The Light Direction will take you on a fast-paced roller coaster of hot sex, mind games and supernatural visions that will leave you hungry for more.

My Review:

This is one of the strangest books I’ve ever read. Don’t get me went, it’s a perfectly linear story, it’s clearly a romance masquerading as a paranormal (seriously, the only paranormal thing that happens is a weird feeling and some glowing lights), with a bit of the hot ‘n’ heavy thrown in. But I just walked away confused.
Aside from wanting to punch certain characters in the face. There was no confusion about that.
I don’t think I really know what confused me.
Whether it was the fact the story didn’t seem to have an actual ending to round it off.
Whether it was the fact that Jaxx just seemed to appear out of nowhere at the end of the story, knowing everything about Emma.
Whether it was the ridiculous compound sentences lacking so much grammar that they flowed like a teenager’s thoughts (don’t get me started on the text-speak. It might be part of the character, but from someone who types out every word, it’s just f-ing annoying – I read to read, not decode!).
Or whether it was that the middle of the story only linked up to the story at the beginning and end by coincidence, orchestrated by the ‘baddie’ well before Emma even met Jeremy. There are a lot of blanks here that need to be filled by the sequel.
I hope Ms Creatively can answer these questions, and soon.
3.5/5

  1. Hello Holly ;-) thanks for taking the time to review Reach For Your Light. I CAN answer some of the questions you pose and points you raise right now.

    “it’s clearly a romance masquerading as a paranormal (seriously, the only paranormal thing that happens is a weird feeling and some glowing lights)” << Absolutely agree there. I actually hate that I was told I had to label it as "paranormal romance" but apparently that is what the industry requires of anything falling even slightly out of the straight cut romance category. There are more supernatural parts to book two however 'Reach' is really an introduction to the main characters and series.

    "Aside from wanting to punch certain characters in the face. There was no confusion about that." << Thank You! It's great that my characters could evoke such emotion in you. They really do evolve and 'grow up' throughout the series and its interesting for those readers who want to find out more to go on that journey with them.

    "I don’t think I really know what confused me. Whether it was the fact the story didn’t seem to have an actual ending to round it off. Whether it was the fact that Jaxx just seemed to appear out of nowhere at the end of the story, knowing everything about Emma." << I love and am inspired by things like LOST and HEROES …series stories which pose more questions as quickly as some answers come to light… stories that provide twists and turns and leave you wondering what exactly is going on right up until you are hit with a conclusion. That in mind 'The Light Direction' IS A SERIES and this is only book one which was never intended to round off neatly with a bow. This book is not for someone who wants a complete conclusion presented at the end it's for those with an open mind who enjoy something different: there are plenty more supernatural powers, sexy characters twists and turns to unfold. I predict Jez will be less disliked in book two and Emma's connection to Jaxx is explained as well as Nic's true colours shining brightly as he steps up his game involving Emma whether she likes it or not.
