Out From Under You Review...

Genre: New Adult Romance
Published: August 13, 2013
Series: Smart Girls Finish First #1
“Love is an earthquake.  It comes when you least expect it. It rips the ground clear away. Right out from under you.” 

The day Lia Smart met Grayson Walker, eight years ago, was the day she fell helplessly in love with him. Coincidentally, it was the same day Grayson fell in love with someone else: Lia’s smarter, sexier, superior-in-every-way older sister, Alex.

Now, nearly a decade later, Alex and Grayson are long over and twenty-two-year-old Lia has finally managed to forget all those lonely nights she spent pining after her sister’s boyfriend. But when Grayson unexpectedly arrives back in town with Alex for Labor Day weekend and the two announce that they’re not only back together but engaged, all the feelings that Lia buried suddenly come bubbling back to the surface.

But Lia is no longer the awkward, gangly tomboy she was at fourteen. Far from it. And Grayson is conflicted by the lustful thoughts he’s now having for her. He knows he could never act on those thoughts, however. Grayson has always prided himself on being one of the “good guys.” But as the weekend wears on, he’s finding this new grown-up version of Lia more and more impossible to resist...

Heartbreaking and sexy with a dash of humor, Sophie Swift crafts a passionate, unforgettable tale about desire, growing up, and the kind of love that shakes us to the core.

Contains adult situations and explicit content. Recommended for ages 17+


By Kayla:

 “Love is an earthquake. It comes when you least expect it. It rips the ground clear away. Right out from under you.”
 "No one ever tells you the truth about love. It’s a massive conspiracy and the entire world is in on it."
"You get all the attention. You always have. Ever since you were a baby, stuck in that incubator and everyone thought you were going to die. Do you know what it’s like to grow up in the shadow of little Natalia, the miracle baby? You got everything you always wanted!"

 I was given an ecopy of Out from Under You by Sophie Swift for an honest review. This is a different kind of love story. This is a story about how you don't get to choose who you love and sometimes you have to make tough choices. This story is written in the POV of both Grayson and Lia.  You get to see inside these characters minds and their hearts, you really getting a chance to understand them. I love stories that you get to see how both people are dealing with things. It makes things so much more interesting. At least in some books.  Sophie writes a powerful story and I enjoyed reading it. You know going into this story that you are going to get drama and the possibility of a broken heart. The characters are not perfect and are afraid to grab what they really want in life. What will they choose?

I enjoyed this book and the way that Sophie Swift wrote this story. I think that this story is full of drama, love triangles and choices. I would recommend this book to people who love romance and drama. 

I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
