“…emotionally gripping and thought provoking story…”
~ Under the Covers

What an unexpected little treasure.  I had no idea about this book until it popped up on my radar on the rec of a fellow blogger on Instagram.  I was in the right mood for an emotional read and from the blurb I could tell this would be that kind of journey.  And it delivered exactly what I wanted.

HOW TO WALK AWAY is an emotionally gripping and thought provoking story of a woman’s’ journey in self discovery and reinventing herself after a tragic accident changes everything she knew about her future, her past and her identity.  Katherine Center does really a wonderful job at making the reader feel immersed in the story and it was such a fast read for me.  It often made me wonder what my reaction would be if in the same situation.  I loved how complex the story was as well as we are dealing with more than the physical implications from the accident.  There’s the obvious self esteem issues.  And also so many family secrets that come to the surface.  The relationship between our main heroine and every member of her family was an added treat that added something I really enjoyed to the story.

I don’t want to spoil the story at all so I think with the blurb you know enough to know if you’d like to check it out.  If I had to compare this to something else, the obvious choice for me would be ME BEFORE YOU but done in a much happier way.  There’s a better outlook on life and relationships, and definitely a lot more romance 😉  So if that sounds like something you’d be into, then give this book a shot.  I’m glad I discovered it and will be on the lookout for more books from this author.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
