MY REVIEW:


4 Stars!

Ava Harrison is a fairly new author for me but someone who has picqued my interest for the future. I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I signed up to read this book but it definitely wasn't what I got. This book was absolutely brilliant. Ava took me on a twisted journey that I won't soon forget.

 trans•fer•ence: a novel was a twisted, intense, passionate, taboo, and highly forbidden story. This book took me on an unexpected journey that kept me on my toes the entire time. My heart pounded... breathing increased... and the incredible roller coaster it took me on was worth every single moment. And as I neared the end, I was fearful to see what was in store but this author did me good.

I won't give you spoilers or this storyline but if you like books that keep on you on the edge of your seat while bringing the passion and heat, then this is for you. Take a chance... the journey is soooo worth it!

I highly recommend this book.



3 Stars!

As a huge fan of teacher/student, I was looking to get my grubby little hands on my first patient/therapist read. From the blurb, it was everything I could have wanted in a sordid, taboo tale, yet it wasn't. 

Ava Harrison gives her readers two characters with thier own set of problems to deal with. Yes, he is a therapists actually working through some stuff himself, which I found interesting. The book starts off very slow and I feel like a jerk saying it, but I had no empathy for Eve as I kept reading. She was a woe is me character, always complaining, yet never doing anything to really help herself. Sydney, her best friends, is a god sent in my eyes for sticking around like she did.

Then we have Preston the thearapist. Boy he seemed to have some interesting and creepy thing going on with him. Seeing Eve brought all kinds of feelings to the forefront of his mind and he isn't sure what to do about them. I couldn't wait to see what actually happened in his past to freak him out so much when he saw Eve. 

While well written, the book takes a long time to get to any "good stuff" so the more I had to read about Eve, the more I didn't want to. By the time all of the storylines/secrets were presented, they were glossed over. Moved on from. Adding zero angst that the story desperately needed, leaving me disappointed in its wake.
