Evoke - Blog Tour


Genre: YA/NA Romance
Release Date: November 2018

What they say: When five friends come home from college for the summer, it feels as if the friendship that has bound them together since childhood, is stronger than ever. But when Laney Thomas wakes up two months later and discovers she is the sole survivor of an accident that has claimed the lives of three friends, Laney realizes the world she has awakened, is not the one she remembers. The loss is devastating, changing her life irrevocably, and with no recollection of the accident or the days leading up to it, Laney must rely on Evan Davies, the only one not in the car that night, to help her heal. The two have always been close, sharing a rare and inextricable bond, and as long as he is by her side, the emptiness won’t swallow her whole. But when Evan disappears from her life without explanation, Laney is forced into her memories of the past, learning the painful truth of the friendships she cherished, and love coveted.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I cannot and hopefully will not ever be able to imagine being in a situation like Laney. She awakes as the only survivor of a horrific accident and has a lot of survivors guilt. Add to the fact that the life she's left with is so far removed from the one she remembers and was supposed to lead that she is at a complete loss. 

I felt genuine sympathy for Lacey and wanted her to be able to move on and find some sort of happiness. The style reminded me of a darker rom-com told across POVs and time - it's not that but this'll make more sense when you read it.

Oh Evan! You special, secretive creature! I both loved and hated him! Don't get me wrong, I do like a bit of tension but I really wanted him to open up and be honest.

 I did find myself getting a little confused over ages at times and I'd definitely call this one a YA/New Adult cross over.

I enjoyed the action and the story made me think. There's a real sadness to the story but also a sense of hope.

4 Stars in my Sky!
