When I read the description for Emerge (Evolve Series) by S.E. Hall I was intrigued.
Two different, but equally perfect guys…what do you do when there is no wrong decision?
No sooner than Laney Walker and her long-time best friend Evan Allen finally delve into romantic feelings for each other, college sends them packing, miles apart. Never the social butterfly, Laney is slow to adjust to life with a new softball team, crazy roommate and co-ed dorm.
Just when she thinks nothing could distance her from her old life any further, she meets the mysterious, debonair Dane Kendrick and her heart is left divided.
What would happen if she let go and took a leap of faith into what she never knew she wanted? A jump that Dane seems more than happy to help her through.
Laney is the innocent, tomboyish, raised by a single father, girl next door. Evan is the sweet, all American, football player, boy next door. Seems perfect doesn’t it? They thought so too. Being separated for college is not what they expected to happen to them. Laney thinks it is best for them to return to being best friends instead of boyfriend/girlfriend, she doesn’t want anything to ruin the friendship they have had since they were 9 years old.
“His eyes are big and brown and he smiles all the way through them. His skin is dark, like he’s tan all year round, and he carries himself with a kind but yeah, I know you’re looking air.”
Laney is trying to find the balance between her new friends, the mystery that is Dane, and her life with Evan. She is not technically with Evan but she still feels guilty for the feelings she has developing for Dane. Dane is sweet, protective, understanding, respectful….he does not push Laney into anything and he takes his time with her.
“It means, Laney, that I want to get to know you better.”
Laney is confused about Evan’s feelings for her because of their agreement to be friends and their distance.
“Absence makes the heart grow fonder’ my ass. How about ‘absence makes the head dizzy and fills the heart with aching bewilderment.”
Emerge (Evolve Series) is written from multiple POVs, allowing the reader to see this story from different angles. Most of the book is from Laney’s POV however the snippets from Dane and Evan made it hard to choose sides. Both of these boys truly care for and love this girl. The flow of their story is well written, it is not all over the place but it still keeps you wondering….
….who will give up everything for Laney, and at what cost? Read Emerge (Evolve Series) and find out!
