Review ~ New Point by Olivia Luck ~ JMAC


Imagine the worst day of your life. Immerse yourself in the details. How did you feel? Who were you with? What were the consequences?

Recalling my darkest day is as simple as typing a few search terms into a web browser. It only took thirty minutes for me to become the center of a media frenzy that caught the attention of an entire country.

So I hid.

Nine months later and I'm getting better. Moved two hours from home, landed my dream job, and met a delicious new guy.

Healing is that simple, right?


Note: New Point is the start of a standalone series with connected characters, but independent story lines.
I really enjoyed New Point.  I was in a bit of a funk, and New Point pulled me right out of it.  I wasn't too sure what the story was about because the synopsis didn't give anything away AT ALL.  Yes, usually I like to read synopsis's to get a feel for the book, so I basically went into New Point blind, and seriously, I'm happy I did.  I was hooked from page 1, and read the whole book in one sitting. 
Zoe Baker is one of my favorite characters!  She is the girl all guys want, but not because she's "hot", because Zoe has brains, and she isn't one of those girls who just want a guy to have one.  Zoe isn't the same as other girls, she's actually all about working as a librarian, and getting back on track.  The only thing missing in Zoe, is the girl she used to be.  Something traumatic happened to Zoe that changed her.  Made her a cautious person, someone with extreme anxiety.  Zoe is afraid to let anyone in, she basically pushed everyone, except for her older brother, out of her life.
New point is the story of learning to heal on your own.  Zoe had to overcome a horrid experience, something that could have taken her life.  That would traumatize anyone.  Zoe knew that she needed to heal, and learn to move passed everything, but at her own pace.  That's when she decided she needed out of the big city, and made a move to New Point. New Point is also where Zoe meets Miles, her delicious neighbor. 
Miles brings feelings out of Zoe that she thought she'd never feel again.  The thing is, Zoe doesn't want to let anyone in, because she doesn't want anyone to have to deal with her baggage. Both Zoe and Miles are just amazing.  They belong together, but sometimes life gets in the way.  They both need to find a way to make it work, and the most important factor being communication.  Both Zoe and Miles need to work hard together, if they have a chance at making any type of relationship work. 
New Point is a beautifully written story.  A 5 bold stars for me!
  Olivia, this is my first book of yours, but it certainly wont be my last. 
 If you want to find out what happens in Zoe's life, and to find out if she was able to heal from her past, one click New Point.  You won't be disappointed!
