This is my stop during the blog tour for When Faults Collide. This blog tour is organized by Lola’s Blog Tours. The blog tour runs from 1 till 14 July, you can view the complete tour schedule on the website of Lola’s Blog Tours.
Asha is a 23 year old graphic designer and blogger living in Richmond VA with a dark past. She grew up in India in a brothel where her mother was a prostitute and came to America to live with her father when she was 13. 10 years later and while she has survived, she lives her life under a strict set of rules and lives fairly sheltered in order to protect herself. Her most important rule: never get involved romantically.
Then she meets Blake, a 25 year old music venue owner with an equally dark past. From their first encounter, Asha finds it difficult to follow her own rules and can’t deny the connection between the two of them.
Can Asha overcome her demons to go beyond surviving to thriving and will Blake be the perfect broken piece to the puzzle of her heart?
When I first saw this book, I thought of Collide by Howie Day.
This book is about Asha, written about her life starting out in a brothel in India with her mom. The beginning of the story is sad, but makes an interesting story information that is needed to understand her. I liked how her life was so wrong from the beginning yet changed so positive to the end. As a matter of fact I felt this story had quite of few messages in it while I was reading it. The prostitute, human trafficking, not always a nice thing to read, but it is real and I felt the emotions in this story are true.
I also liked her tweets, text messages, and blog post, made it interesting to read and was a little be different. I also loved the love story with her and Blake and how her life changed.
I felt that the writer did a great job on this story, basically an easy read, even though there is some sad parts because of the life difficulties that Asha and Blake had in their background. There was a few cuss words, but I think the story was one to be told and interesting without making hard to read. I feel young adults could read this story to understand and have empathy and also to be aware of what is going on in this world.
I got this off the authors blog “**This story contains mature subject matter such as prostitution, rape, PTSD, drug use, and more. While the writing style does not use overly graphic depictions of these situations, please use your own discretion.**”
This story is a true survival story.
I did receive this book for an honest review.
