Title: Knotted Roots
Author: Ruthi Kight
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the authoring exchange for an honest review.
Love, love, love this cover! It fits the story beautifully and draws the reader in. I loved the storyline, at times it was a bit cheesy, but I still enjoyed it. Ruthi Kight has a way of expressing the characters emotions so the reader feels them right along with the character. The last chapter of the book had me crying and snorting profusely because it was that good and that emotional. Knotted Roots is a fun, quick read, filled with humour, romance and tragedy in the right dose.
Roxie grew immensely over the course of this book. I thought hat she would never change, luckily for everyone she does eventually. Everything leasing up to book two has made me so proud of her and the woman that she is becoming. I am glad that Roxie finally realized that her and Chase are perfect for each other. Chase is your typical southern gentleman (not that I have ever been to the south or have met a southern gentleman before, but he is what I would expect if I did), sweet, extremely polite and HOT! I can't wait to read the next book and see if these two will last.
Excellent read from page one onwards. I would recommend this novel to YA and NA romance lovers. Book two needs to come out now and be in my hands!
About the Author:
If you had asked 6 year old Ruthi what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have told you a Rock Star. Those dreams faded to the background when she found out who the true Rock Stars are: Authors.
She has always had a fascination with books, losing herself completely in numerous books, enjoying the worlds she found that were so unlike her own. They were her escape, and eventually became her passion.
Her family has been putting up with her and her incoherent ramblings while she worked on her debut novel, Knotted Roots. Her five year old and Fiance have suffered through many “fend for yourself” nights, but somehow still manage to love her anyway.
She is now attending the Southern New Hampshire University, working on her Bachelor’s in Creative Writing/Fiction so that she can create her own worlds for others to fall in love with.
Okay, now that I’m done talking in the third person, let me just say that I love connecting with people via Facebook, Goodreads, my blog, etc. If you would like to chat, you can usually find me online at any given time. I also want to say thank you to each and every person who reads my book. It was a labor of love and I truly hope that you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
