Sisters from Another Mister

book reviews

“Kick Push” by Jay McLean


Wow! What a ride.  I was overwhelmed by the feels that this book brought to me.

The story: Boy meets girl, boy knocks girl up, girl leaves after baby born, fast forward a few years.  Boy has had some unlucky breaks and a really lucky one early on.  Then, he meets a new girl.  This girl is broken and he feels a kinship to her.

Hero/Heroine: Josh is great.  He took a terrible situation and made a wonderful life for himself.  He didn’t bemoan his fate and he didn’t regret anything.  Everything he does is for his son.  As a character, I loved him.  Lately, I have been looking for a non-alpha hero in my stories.  Josh felt real and that was magic for me.  Becca, um… I wasn’t in love with Becca.  She was kind of weak and needy.  I understood her story and the trauma she went through, but she acted more like a fourteen year old than an eighteen/nineteen year old.  It was a bit off-putting for me.

Characters: There were some good background characters.  I was pleased to find out that there is another book that features Blake Hunter.  Beyond that, I was pleased to see the growth in Josh’s parents and his relationship with his baby mama.

Editing: Nothing stood out to me as bad.  That is a good thing.

Final Thoughts: This book is one that I really enjoyed.  Was it great, I am not sure.  Yet, I couldn’t put the book down and read it in one sitting.  I felt a wide range of emotions and that is always the sign of a great story.


About Melissa

I am an avid book reader and have instilled that love of books in my two sons. My sisters and I have shared books for years and our love for reading. I started reading quite young and have been immersed in literature ever since. My favorite genres are New Adult, Young Adult, Mystery and comedy. My favorite book is a tie between "Easy" by Tammara Webber and "Maybe Someday" by Colleen Hoover. I love the works by Tiffany King, Tammara Webber, Erica Stevens, Lisa Renee Jones, Chelsea M. Cameron, and many more. I am very much a book snob though. If a book doesn't draw me in within the first few chapters, I am done with it.
