*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
Kick Push by Jay McLean was one of those books that I started reading having preconceived ideas of how expecting the story to go. And the suddenly within the first few chapters I realise this is going to be different and much more that just your normal boy meets girl story. Single dad Joshua Warden’ story wow was emotional at times, and once I started, I couldn’t put it down.
“Sometimes the basic of moments become your most treasured memories”
I’m not going to go into the storyline as it one you need to read only knowing what Jay tell you in the synopsis. What I will tell you is that Kick Push is about second chances, family, sacrifices, friendship, falling in love, trust, and happiness.
“There’s a big difference between being happy and being selfish. Choose to be happy and Fire truck the rest”
It’s not just Josh that will have you reaching for the tissue as he tries to deal with all that come with being a single parent at such a young age. There is the girl with the emerald eyes who has stolen his heart she is an amazing character, and her story is heartbreaking. I love the connection and empathy between these two.
“His touch is safe”
“I’m addicted to her. To every single thing about her. And even though I know It’s bad, it feels so dam good”
The secondary characters added to the story and play an important part of it without taking the focus away from Josh and the girl with the emerald eyes. Okay, well maybe someone did, and that would be Tommy Josh’s son. He was just too cute. Loved Tommy’s relationship with his dad, and many of the other characters.
I loved Jay’s writing is beautiful, and you can feel the passion she has for these characters. If you love, emotional, heartwarming, heartbreaking reads, then this one is for you. Don’t get me wrong yes, it emotional but, Jay still in flicks her great sense of humour that made me smile and laugh to myself and I love that.
Push Kick is a must read that you won’t forget in a hurry, and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next.
“I see you Josh”
