The Upside of Letting Go By Nacole Stayton


Haley Martin decides the only way to let go of her lingering nightmares is to literally move on. Taking a leap of faith she finds herself enrolling at a campus hundreds of miles away from home.

She leaves any thoughts of dating again in Jersey, that is until fate crosses her path with a blue-eyed stud named Kyler King. He is notoriously known for being emotionally unattainable, but his fa├žade is only to hide the burdens he bares every day.

As Kyler and Haley’s physical attraction becomes deeper, the secrets of the past threaten to surface. When Haley’s past collides with the present, will her secrets prove too big of an obstacle hindering their happily ever after, or will letting go be the key that locks their bond forever?

My Review

Debut Book

Wow what can I say about this awesome book.

This is a Debut book by Nacole Stayton and what a book.  Be warned this book will invoke every emotion possible that you have. You have been warned.  

Haley Martin gets up and moves away from her home town to a different city, different life and different school. Its here that she meets Kyler King and EVERYBODY warns her about him, BUT Kyler king falls head over heels for Haley. When they start to trust each other and tell each other their secrets, fate steps in and knocks these two down again. I would love to go more into depth..... BUT I CAN'T, it would ruin it.

I read this book from start to finish in one sitting, I couldn't put it down. I cried in parts of this book because I could relate to a certain part( sorry I still can't say) and that made me cry even more. I went through the roller-coaster of emotions with them and then some. I was emotionally drained at the end of this book, I just sat.....

I loved this book. The cover doesn't do it justice, I have learnt a valuable lesson over the last 6 months - not to judge a book by its cover and I am so glad I did.
 I loved the characters, pace and flow of it. The only thing I didn't like was that it finished..... 

My advice to anyone reading this book is this-

Make sure you are in the room on your own, you wont want to be disturbed.
Make sure you don't have places/people to see, you wont want to be disturbed.
Make sure you don't have a natural disaster waiting to happen, your not going to move.

I am giving this book 5/5 stars and 5/5 movie moments.
