That Girl by H.J. Bellus- Release Day Blitz and Review


This book is about That Girl…

The girl who leaves behind her past, including her name; runs away from home and vows to never let another identity claim her again. Broken dreams, an abusive step-dad and ugly memories from her childhood are the only shattered remnants that have the ability to haunt her.

With no money, an endless blank slate laying ahead of her and no hopes for the future, she sets out to survive at minimum wage jobs, moving from town to town, changing her name with each move, and never allowing glimpses of her past to threaten her empty future.
Average in every way, from her looks to her personality and even her style, there is not much to remember about her. When she abandons one town for another, she leaves behind her fake identity in the search of the next one, while leaving people asking themselves, “I wonder what ever became of that girl.”

This was her reality until Lincoln Wilks.

The number one defensive football player in Fort Collins who finally names That Girl.

My Review 

That GirlThat Girl by H.J. Bellus
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

She's survived horrific abuse, and just like she has planned her whole life the minute she turns 18 she takes off. Moving from town to town as soon as she can get enough money to go further she does. She goes by a different name in each town and works as many hours as possible to keep her mind occupied and save put o go further. She finally decides to stay a while in Colorado and meets Lincoln Wilks, star football player. For the first time she feels like connecting to someone and letting herself be known.

Oakley is a girl who has suffered pretty much any emotional and physical trauma there is. Her main goal is to just exist and not be noticed or harmed. She is an easy character to connect to and I found myself quickly wanting good things to happen to her. Despite being treated horribly by a number of people and having no good example of humanity in her life, she is kind to others, honest, and hard-working. Lincoln is pretty much too good to be true. He is sexy, sweet, and has infinite patience. As a character he is tough to believe, but considering what Oakley has been through, it is nice to see the perfect man fight for her. This is a book that engaged me quickly and I read straight through. I would read more by this author in the future.
