Well I have been reading a lot of books since I joined up to be a reviewer for the website Manic Readers and this is one of my many reviews for them. Today I’m going to be posting my review of Saving Sophie by Elle Amery, which is the first book of her Quartzton series. I will also be posting the review for the second, Grace on Fire, and third book, Tally’s Gift, in the series for Manic Readers as well here on the blog so keep a watch out for those two reviews. Before I forget Elle Amery contacted me when she found out I reviewed her first novel Saving Sophie and we worked with our schedules and I will be posting my interview with her on Tuesday, May 5 and her author guest blog on Thursday, May 7.

Sophie Huntsman has had a very big crush on the gorgeous Jake Muscat ever since she was a frizzy-haired little twerp who used to follow him, his friend Wyatt and her brother, Brett around when they were kids. But after years of not seeing one another she’s now all woman and fiercely determined to carry out her fantasy, even if it means that she has to follow Jake’s strict rules. Jake has always been a lone wolf and has made it very clear to all the girls that have come on to him that he’ll never have a serious long-term relationship, never commit to anyone. But Sophie will take anything he’ll give her, even if it’s just one night of amazing sex between them that should never be repeated even though they have an attraction to one another that is too hot to control. Then after they have their one night of passion together Sophie’s career is jeopardized and only Jake can help her out, so they agree to leave their night together behind them. However, lust stirs up between them again, and this time, it leaves Sophie spinning and Jake convinced that his obsession with her will bring nothing but pain for them both. This time, Sophie’s faced with a deteriorating career and a breaking heart, and there is no one left to save her now that Jake has made up his mind that they could never have a serious relationship with each other.
The cover of this book caught my attention which then lead to me wanting to know what the story to this cover was. So I went to find the blurb of this novel so I could decide if it was right for me and I found that the blurb was just as intriguing as the cover. Elle Amery is a new author to me but after reading this novel I know that it definitely won’t be my last because she has hooked me on her writing. Sophie Huntsman is such a wonderful character that really hooked me from the beginning because she is so real with similar problems and issues that I know have happened to me or some of my own friends. I thought that is was so cute that she has had a big crush on her older brother’s friend Jake Muscat even though he didn’t know about it at the time. Jake Muscat is one deliciously hot guy who has personal issues that have been affecting his way of relating to the opposite sex in a more intimate way. I just fell in love with both Sophie and Jake as I read this novel because they both seem so right for each other from the beginning though they have a bit of a bumpy road to figure it out.
Once I started reading Saving Sophie I couldn’t stop reading it until I knew that Sophie and Jake would have their happy ending. I really loved all the other characters as well, such as Sophie’s best friends Grace and Tally. Grace is Jake’s younger sister and Tally is Wyatt’s younger sister so there were a lot of fun memories shared throughout the novel that added such emotion to this wonderful novel. I was a bit sad yet happy to finish this novel. I was sad to have come to the end of the novel but I was happy because I found out that this is the first book of Elle Amery’s Quartzton Series and that there were at least two more books to read about Sophie’s friends Grace in, Grace on Fire, and Tally in, Tally’s Gift. Elle Amery delivered a hot, sexy and thrilling novel that will grab you from the start with witty characters and keep you reading until the very end to find out if the hero and heroine will get their happily ever after.
