BOOK BLITZ: Miles From Kara (Charleston Have #2) By, Melissa West

Kara Marcus is desperate to forget the past and move on. But she can’t escape her choices—especially when she finds herself falling in love…

Since the first day she stepped into her childhood Southern Baptist church, two truths have been engrained in Kara Marcus’s head: sex before marriage is bad and murder is a sin. And that’s why Kara can never forgive herself for what she did at the age of sixteen.

Now, as second semester of freshman year comes to a close, Kara has stood by her high school boyfriend, Ethan. But as they seem to grow further and further apart every day, Kara realizes that she has feelings for someone else: Ethan’s roommate Colt.

Suddenly, Kara’s clear-cut world shifts out of focus, and she’s torn between what her head tells her is right and what her heart is desperately pushing her to do—even if it means committing another undeniable sin...

Miles From Kara was pretty good. The story was pretty straight forward that didn’t really have that much drama outside of what Kara was putting herself through. She never really brought other people into her drama. She was one who tried to deal with everything by herself. Even though there were other characters in the book it was definitely the Kara story.

“This…this kiss was powerful and intense and full of deep, dark emotions that we’d yet to explore.”

Kara went through something that she can’t forgive herself for. Now years later she feels it creeping in a taking over her life. She is no longer the Kara she used to be and everyone can see that. Now she has to decide if she is still IN love with her boyfriend of two years or is it time to move on. Maybe with her boyfriend’s hot roommate.

“I had stood mere feet away from Ethan and had felt nothing at all. Not regret. Not a tug of old feelings. Nothing. But being here with Colt, seeing the worry on his face when he’d opened the door, it was unlike anything I’d ever felt before. And that was when I realized what I was feeling-love. I loved Colt. I absolutely, completely, and totally loved him.”

This story was pretty interesting and the writing was done well. I liked Kara’s narrative and the dialogue between the characters was full of caring and emotion. One of the things I didn’t really care for was that we didn’t really get to know any of the other characters. I felt like I didn’t really get to connect with Ethan or even Colt. I felt like the timeline was a little off too. I mean it felt like she had this big epiphany at 90% and then she was changed and completely better. It didn’t feel genuine to me. Other than that I really enjoyed the book and would really recommend it.
