BLOG TOUR - REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Inspire by Heather Buchine

Inspire by Heather Buchine
Publication date:
March 31st 2013
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance

18-year old Paige Rice, an exquisite beauty from East Hampton, NY, has just celebrated her high school graduation and is expecting to spend her summer living it up with all her socialite friends. But her parents have a different idea – she is being hauled away-literally- to the mountains of Vermont for the entire summer- in an RV! 

Assuming she will be an outcast amongst the other teens at the campground still does not prepare her for the treatment she receives, which is far worse than she imagined. She also isn’t prepared for Travis, the campground owner’s son and the “Sexiest” guy she has ever laid eyes on. Travis is the only one who shows any interest in getting to know Paige. The only problem is that they have to explore what lies between them in secret. But once all the secrets are stripped away, the truth may be crushing.

***Intended for mature audiences due to language and sexual content***

My Thoughts:

“Paige, you have inspired me to love fully and every day you inspire me to be a better man, and you will always own my heart.

I'm really having trouble gathering my thoughts together to say what I want to say about this book. I had a real love/frustration going on with these characters throughout the whole book. One minute I liked them, then I was confused by something they did, then I couldn't understand them, then I was frustrated with them and questioning whether I liked them, only to find my self back to liking them again.

Eighteen year old Paige Rice is in the summer before she heads off to college when her Mum and Dad come up with the plan to go camping for the summer. The last thing Paige wants is to be away from her friends and her crush while they're all having fun and she is stuck off in some camp ground with only her parents for company. She expects to be an outsider with all the regular teenage campers but what she isn't prepared for is their complete and total animosity. Or the fact that she's just laid eyes on the most gorgeous and sexy guy she's ever seen. 

Travis Medler is the son of the camping grounds owners and the only one who tries to get to know Paige. Their attraction to each other sees them quickly fall into a relationship, but Travis suggests that they keep it quiet so that the other girls at the campground don't give Paige even more of a hard time. Paige loves the time that they spend together and agrees that keeping things just between them is for the best. But is Travis being completely honest with Paige? What will happen when the secrets find the light of day? Will Paige and Travis be able to salvage their relationship?

I really enjoyed the story that Heather Buchine has created. It was a quick and fun read with plenty of heat and angst to keep the story interesting. It was with the characters where my frustrations lie. As I said earlier, I had a real up and down thing happening with them. When it was just Travis and Paige together, for the most part they were perfect. They were pretty hot and heavy with each other, but there were also moments of sweetness. Add in other people and that's where the problems occurred. There were times when Travis ignored Paige in front of his friends and no matter how much Paige begged for them to be a couple around those friends, Travis kept coming up with excuses why they needed to keep their relationship hidden. And for the most part Paige went along with it. I wanted to throttle her!! But she wasn't just forgiving of Travis, I think that's just her nature because she was sweet and kind to everyone.

The epilogue left me with a whole lot of questions so I'm assuming that there is another book to come. I will definitely be picking that up for a read because above all, I did enjoy the authors writing.

3.5/5 Stars.

Author Bio: 
By no surprise my favorite hobbies are reading and writing. But beyond escaping into the written fantasy world, I love experiencing new things. Surfing, motorcycle riding, snow blading, glass blowing, parasailing, SUP boarding are just a few that I have checked off my bucket list, but there is still so much more to explore. Right now, being a mom is my biggest adventure and the best by far!! In the quiet calm hours of the night though, I can usually be found typing away creating a world of romance where drama still exists but love (hopefully!!) always prevails.
