Memphis (Review)

Ginger Scott released a new book this past 23rd Memphis.

Blurb:

My mom always said it was just something about the way he moved.

The same swagger Archie Valentine wore in the ring when he took his opponents

down followed him like a halo everywhere he went. But make no mistake about it—

he was no angel. He was like a drug. My mother was his addict.

I never understood it…how love could make you blind and convince you to drink the

poison. Not until I met Memphis Delaney.

At first, it was the familiar form. He’s a fighter, built like a god from the past, the kind

of man the universe doesn’t make anymore. His eyes hide a story, and every time I’m

in his presence I want to keep reading him until I get to the end. And then…there’s

the way he moves. His boxing is violent but beautiful, and his body is a seductive

weapon. When he’s in the ring, he wears the stare of a man committed to the battle

until his very last breath.

He could end me; turn me into her. Too much of him will leave me as a shadow, and

I’ve lost so much of myself already.

But I have discipline. It came the hard way. Lessons learned, scars left behind, and

trust stripped away from life.

I will breathe his air, but I won’t fall for a man like him. The only boxer who’s ever

going to break my heart is the one who gave me my name.

Review :

4 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Memphis is the story of Liv and Memphis. Two people with family issues that find a home in the other one.

If you’ve read any other Ginger Scott book you know she writes powerful characters with personal issues and complicated lives.

Memphis is pure heart, this boy is just looking to belong.

Liv just wants to survive enough to run away and be someplace else.

Together they find what they were looking for and more, but life always gets in the way.

The chemistry between them is so godo and they compliment each other really well since the first time they met.

Overall, I liked this book and its main characters. A story about surviving, living and becoming someone, but above it all is about finding your HOME.

It’s not The Hard Count (one of my favorite books of all times) but it’s pretty good, like most of the books written by this author.

Ginger Scott is an Amazon-bestselling and Goodreads Choice Award-nominated

author of several young and new adult romances, including Waiting on the Sidelines,

Going Long, Blindness, How We Deal With Gravity, This Is Falling, You and

Everything After, The Girl I Was Before, Wild Reckless, Wicked Restless, In Your

Dreams, The Hard Count, Hold My Breath, A Boy Like You and A Girl Like Me.

A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she often blends

the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot quarterback, catcher, pitcher,

point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has been writing and editing for newspapers,

magazines and blogs for more than 15 years. She has told the stories of Olympians,

politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and

her work, visit her website at http://www.littlemisswrite.com.

When she’s not writing, the odds are high that she’s somewhere near a baseball

diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on

her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is

married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).

The Hard Count

Title: The Hard Count
Author: Ginger Scott
Release date: July 15, 2016

The Hard Count is one of those books that you have to re-read after finishing them. Right away. This book left me in what I think it’s called ‘book drunk state’, I don’t know. It’s the feeling of not being able to read anything else because you haven’t gotten over this one special book. 

The main characters are so special and something different. Reagan is a strong and independent girl, a loner with a love for film. She comes from a good family, lives in a good neighborhood and her family is prestigious, but she knows that there’s more to life than that. Nico is a good boy from a bad neighborhood, he’s intelligent and never forgets his values. He has some special abilities and though he has seen some bad things growing up he doesn’t let them get in his way. 

They built a bond so beautiful and I love that even though it seems they’re so different they’re more alike. They both grow together, and I love to watch them together. 

It’s written from Reagan’s point of view but there’s a few chapters from Nico’s perspective that show us his past. I found them so mature and their romance doesn’t take up the entire book because they know there are more things in life. Also how they develop. I don’t know, I just think that I see myself in both of them, because I don’t usually like both characters.

Ginger Scott has rapidly become one of my fave authors, she sure can write some good books that gets to you. In this book may not be a lot of drama but it gets you all the same. You won’t stop reading once you’ve started it.

Nico Medina’s world is eleven miles away from mine. During the day, it’s a place where doors are open—where homes are lived in, and neighbors love. But when the sun sets, it becomes a place where young boys are afraid, where eyes watch from idling cars that hide in the shadows and wicked smoke flows from pipes.
West End is the kind of place that people survive. It buries them—one at a time, one way or another. And when Nico was a little boy, his mom always told him to run.
I’m Reagan Prescott—coach’s daughter, sister to the prodigal son, daughter in the perfect family.
Life on top.
Lies.
My world is the ugly one. Private school politics and one of the best high school football programs in the country can break even the toughest souls. Our darkness plays out in whispers and rumors, and money and status trump all. I would know—I’ve watched it kill my family slowly, strangling us for years.
In our twisted world, a boy from West End is the only shining light.
Quarterback.
Hero.
Heart.
Good.
I hated him before I needed him.
I fell for him fast.
I loved him when it was almost too late.
When two ugly worlds collide, even the strongest fall. But my world…it hasn’t met the boy from West End.
