Sky Watcher by Ella Emerson

Ella Emerson is a busy bee! Having only just released Freak Out, she has re-released Sky Watcher, just weeks before she releases I Am Atlas! I’m struggling to get one book finished, never mind three! I’m in awe of her!

Sky Watcher is about Allison, a recently divorced 35-year-old who is taking baby steps into the dating game. After going on a date with Gavin McDermott, a hot-shot lawyer, she manages to come away with a new job, a new home and a potential new boyfriend. Allison takes up Gavin’s offer of being a help to his mother Maggie on the family chicken farm but little does Allison know that there is a more impressive prospect of a new boyfriend in the shape of Gavin’s brother, Luke, who is living at the farm and helping his mother out too.

The beginning of the book seems a bit unlikely, although this doesn’t cause any issues with the overall narrative. I mean, that would be some first date, to be offered a new job and a new home, as well as the attentions of a successful man! That said, once you are past this point, what you have is a really pleasant love story. This was a really easy read and I bought into Allison’s situation quite quickly. I can understand her dilemma. Luke sounds hot and Gavin appears to be a bit shallow. However, this works well so that the reader is cheering on Allison and Luke as a couple, right from the start.

Whilst the plot is a little predictable at times, this is a really nice book to read. Emerson harnesses the importance of family, and that age is only a number. As Luke says “Age is like mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” (I smiled at the reference to Breaking Faith by Joy Eileen too, my August Book of the Month.)

I enjoyed Sky Watcher. The characters are likeable, even Gavin, even though he is a bit self-centred, and Emerson keeps you invested in the plot so that you want everything to work out for all the main players. Sky Watcher is a great book for reading on the beach or if you’d just like to cosy up on the sofa with hot chocolate and a nice, romantic read.

Synopsis:
Meet Allison Singleton, Single, alone. Her husband had left her
after years of marriage, and she is destined to be alone for the rest of her
life. At 35, she is afraid to hop back into the dating scene, as she knows
there aren’t too many options at her age. She has labeled men her age into two
categories: Taken, being the first. Everything left over, being the second. The
second group is, the men who are so dreadful no woman has snagged them up yet.
This is her dating pool. That is until she meets the hot lawyer, Gavin
McDermott, on a blind date. Who may just be what she is looking for. He offers
her a job she never expects, and she accepts to try new things. It is here she
discovers, herself, how to be happy and maybe love. But, after tragedy strikes
will everything be as it seems? Will the happiness she is searching for be a
ploy?
Excerpt:
He
stops, when we near the big willow tree.
“Want to hear a story?”
Not really waiting for my answer, he motions for me to sit down
under the large tree. “Do you know the legends associated with the weeping
willow trees?” he asks.
“No, I don’t,” I answer while taking a seat on the cool grass.
He takes a seat next to me and grabs a twig on the ground.
“Some say that the weeping willows once stood upright and
strong, but that the broken hearts of lovers so touched the hearts of the trees
in such a way that they bent in grief and were never able to straighten
themselves again. Now they are forever weeping the tears of each lover. Others
say that they weep for the pain that mankind inflicts upon the earth, and they
will right themselves, once again, when a new era of peace and kindness becomes
a reality,” he says as he twirls the twig through his fingers. His eyes are
focused on the twig while he talks and I let out a breath I didn’t realize I
was holding. Hearing his words about the willow tree moved me. “That’s
beautiful,” I say, staring up into the branches of the willow.
His eyes land on me, and he smiles a slow sexy grin,
repositioning his body to where we are facing each other. He leans his back
against the tree and drops the twig. Grabbing a hold of one of the willow’s
branches he casts his eyes on the shimmering lake.
“It is the tree of dreams. I have sat here so many times over
the years, dreaming of how my life will turn out.”
“Well, is it everything you have dreamed it will be?” I ask.
Our eyes meet, holding each other as he drops the branch and it
swings in the breeze. “Well no, but that’s life, you know? It kinda never turns
out how you dream it will.”

Freak Out by Ella Emerson

Recently I took part in a “Bloghoppalitz” as part of the release promotions for Freak Out by Ella Emerson. I enjoyed this immensely and gained a large number of followers for my Facebook Page in the process. (Thank you to all my new followers!) This weekend, I got to read the book itself and I have to say, overall, I enjoyed it.

The main protagonist is Chelsea, who has had a tough childhood, following the death of her parents, and has been brought up by her uncle Al, who she adores, with her beloved sister Abbi, and her detested cousin Bridget. Chelsea works for her uncle and while it isn’t the best job in the world, it certainly isn’t the worst, and when Chelsea introduces herself to the reader, she is experiencing a sense of ennui. She’d prefer to be somewhere else and having recently broken up with her boyfriend, Gander, she is plodding along without any real sense of direction.

That is, until she has an unexpected, but very sexy encounter with Freak Phillips in the broom closet. Somewhat of an enigma, he affects Chelsea in a way she does not expect and he somehow becomes her boyfriend, much to the chagrin of her sister, Abbi. Despite Abbi’s protestations, Chelsea continues on a path with Freak that she had never imagined for herself. Freak seems to be a borderline sexual predator to the ditzy Chelsea but if this story has a moral, it would be “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. Freak isn’t the loser that Abbi seems to think he is, and Chelsea is stronger than she would appear.

Freak Out is essentially a love story. Both characters have had troubled childhoods for different reasons, both have a deep desire for each other that they cannot shake, no matter how hard they try. Once they have a better understanding of each other, their relationship becomes more of a partnership, where in the beginning, it seems that Freak is calling all the shots, using sex as a weapon and as an enticement in equal measure, leaving Chelsea confused, yet inexplicably aroused. It appears like the beginnings of a dominant/submissive relationship, as Freak punishes Chelsea for arbitrary errors, yet rather than pushing him away, she finds herself wanting him more.

I did feel that there was some repetition in the phrasing and the language used and sometimes, Chelsea’s choice not to explain herself appears to be more for the author’s ease than a character trait, although I’m sure that this is not the case. I also thought that the episode where Chelsea finds three admirers on her doorstep, and the deciding vote on who she should go out with is based on who gave her the best orgasm, ever-so-slightly ridiculous. Funny, yes, but considering that Gander turns up out of nowhere and suddenly wants Chelsea back without any prior warning that this was a possibility, just didn’t work for me.

On the whole, this was a nice, easy book to read and there was a lot to like about it. I enjoyed Chelsea’s confusion in terms of what Freak’s endgame was going to be and I liked Freak’s back story as it was unpacked throughout the narrative. While there were parts of the novel that I thought could have been expanded upon and parts that perhaps the narrative could have done without, it didn’t stop me from being entertained and I read it in one sitting, so I was gripped enough to keep on reading. Overall, the two main characters were very intriguing, in that they both seem to be unsure of each other, yet cannot leave each other alone. I’m looking forward to being involved in the blog tour for Emerson’s future releases and reading and reviewing more of her novels.

 

New Release: Freak Out by Ella Emerson

 

Title: FREAK OUT
Author: Ella Emerson
Release Date: August 20th

 

Synopsis:

As we fell in love with Freak in the prequel, Find out where Freak and Chelsea’s story takes them in this complete standalone novel. 

Have you ever met someone who turned everything you knew inside out? That’s what it was like when Freak Phillips and I really met for the first time. 



This roller coaster ride he had me on was making me question myself. Making me do things I had never dreamed of. So out of character, so unlike me. 


Better yet, I was liking it. 

But, little did I know what he had in store for me was unlike anything I could have ever imagined. 


Freak wasn’t exactly what I had envisioned. Furthermore, could I picture myself with him in a relationship? 


Wild, exciting, and completely deranged come and fall in love with the mystery that is Freak Phillips.
