Giveaway, Tour & Review: Walking Away by Adriane Boyd


3 Hearts

Goodreads Summary
Twenty -five year old Coraline Renfro is in mourning. She and her long time boyfriend, Blake Parrish, have broken up and Cora hasn’t been dealing with it well. She’s shut herself off from the world around her, and buried herself in her work. Tired of being alone, Cora accepts a date from a colleague, and slowly begins to move on. When Blake comes calling again, will Cora take him back or will she show him how it feels to have a door slammed in his face and his hopes and dreams of a future with her dashed?

My Thoughts
**ARC provided for an honest review**

This is a novella, therefore VERY short. So, that be said, my review is going to be a quick one, as there is not much I can say without giving it all away.

I have to be honest, I am not a huge fan of short stories. They work if attached to a series but when it is a stand alone like this, not so much. I like being able to establish some sort of connection to the characters. That is just not possible in this book.

I know Cora and Blake broke up and that is about it. I don't get a glimpse into their relationship. I don't know if things were good or was this something she should have seen coming. And when he comes back, it is only for a brief moment where once again we get no explanations as to why things ended.

We barely get a look into her new relationship. The timeline jumps from their first date to two months later. 

If you are a fan of novellas, then I highly recommend this book. Even though it did not work for me, the writing is great and this author has great potential. I would definitely read A full length novel from her! 


 Adriane is a mother and a writer who resides in Southeast Virginia. She enjoys music, writing, and snuggling up with a good book. Walking Away is her first self published work, and she is also working on writing her first full length novel. if you can't find her playing around on Facebook (which is unlikely), you can certainly find her at either her son's school or one of his Tae Kwon Do lessons.
