My Review

This is the first novel I have ever read that was New Adult novel and I have to say that it will not be my last!

Derailed is a wonderful novel about a woman named Molly who has recently lost her fiancé. And I mean lost by he is no longer living. Caring guilt and grief she quits law school in Boston in the middle of class and decides to go home to Clayton Falls, North Carolina.

When she gets there she is immediately met by her best friend Kelly who takes her to the bar, this is where we learn about her high school sweetheart Ben.

She loved Ben and he her but when her father died Molly left town without looking back. But now that she is back in town Ben has decided he is not going to throw away his second change and sets out to win Molly.

Molly decides they can have a physical relationship but that she is not ready for anything more in her emotional hurt state not to mention she things she is bad news for Ben. He of course aggress with the hopes it evolving into more.

Soon Molly has to admit that she cannot have just a physical relationship with Ben, but her past is still just a around the corner taunting her every time she goes to sleep. Add in this with no one know that her ex-fiancé is dead, Kelly’s husband to be trying to hook her up with one of his cop friends and you have a wonderful novel that is going to be in paperback on my bookshelf ASAP!

Derailed is heartwarming, sad, sweet (I had a mental awww going on more than once!) and funny, with a dash of sexual tension. Over a must read for anyone who is looking for a good romance novel to read.

This is New Adult so there is sex mentioned but it always fades to black before anything really sexual takes place so it is something I think both those who do not like strong sexual elements in book and those who like to have that relationship between the main characters will enjoy.

New Adult is new for me but I will be looking up other books now—next on my list is Alyssa’s novel Flight!
Edit: ZOMG! There is going to be a follow up novel to this book, Veer! *SQUEE*

*I received a hardcover/paperback/eBook copy/ARC of this book for free to review from the author/publisher/tour site; this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.

Alyssa Rose Ivy is a Young Adult and New Adult author who loves to weave stories with romance and a southern setting. Although raised in the New York area, she fell in love with the South after moving to New Orleans for college. After years as a perpetual student, she turned back to her creative side and decided to write. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and two young children, and she can usually be found with a cup of coffee in her hand.
