I'm disappointed that the more I read the Hundred Oak books the less and less well written I seem to find them. I did like Annie's story and her motivation but I didn't feel any real raw emotion towards any of the characters. Jeremiah got a few smiles from me but I feel like I needed more insight into his life. Maybe his own POV would have helped. This was nice but I don't see myself reading another book from this series unfortunately. ( )

I liked Annie as a character and her determination. She is dealing with a lot of grief and perceived guilt. She feels like if she would have done things differently, her ex, Kyle would still be alive, and they could have still been together.

There was strained family dynamics in this one. Annie and her mom had a big fight and she had projected her guilt on her mom and blamed her that if she didn't push her goals of college on Annie, that she could have said yes to the proposal. At least Annie and her brother is close. She doesn't let any of them talk about her loss, and try to suggest ways to heal or what she should do.

The running was interesting. I am much like Annie in that I hate to run, never done it well or had the desire to do it. But the regimen of it started to appeal to Annie. She didn't have to worry about what to do with her time, and she found herself looking forward to the running, and the challenge of it.

She is very conflicted about a new person, a boy, in her life. She feels guilt for having feelings for someone else and thinks its too soon, and also taking over her reason for running. To finish what Kyle couldn't do but put so much time into the training and goal of completing the marathon, But I did enjoy the exploration of the romantic feelings with Jere, and how he helped her to face some things, to realize more about taking chances even with the chance of loss or getting hurt.

I will mention that while I loved the heat in this one, it is a bit descriptive with foreplay etc, so if you are sensitive to that sort of thing.

I liked how it came together and left the book with a sense of completion but also hope for their happiness and what's next for the characters.

Bottom Line: Another good one from this series

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I picked it up on a total whim (having received an ARC) and really enjoyed it. First, I have to state that apparently this is part of Kenneally's "Hundred Oaks" YA series, which I didn't know. It definitely can stand alone, however.

Annie is finishing up high school and training for a marathon. She's never been a runner - in fact, she hates it. However, Annie is running in honor of her late boyfriend Kyle, who never had a chance to run the marathon for which he was training.

Annie is a very mature kid, which took a bit of getting used to. She was definitely in a very developed relationship early in life and she came across older than her years. However, we learn that she's been on her own a bit - her dad was never around and her Mom has been busy working multiple jobs to keep the family afloat. So her maturity works, overall.

Annie is struggling with guilt over Kyle's death. She starts to find relief in her marathon training. She also starts to find relief in Jeremiah, the brother of her training coach. Jeremiah is unlike anyone Annie has ever known.

This was a simple, YA love story. You pretty much know where it's going to go. But it was surprisingly sweet and touching and well-done. Annie is an extremely likable character. Her maturity lends her some credence not always found in YA characters. I also found myself quite swept up in Jeremiah (not unlike Annie), who was also different from the typical YA beau.

Finally, the running element was a fun add to the book. As someone training for a 5K (nowhere near a marathon, but I like to pretend, ha), it was enjoyable to watch Annie progress toward her goal.

Overall, this is probably really a 3.5 star novel, but I just enjoyed the story so much, I bumped it up to 4.

(Note: I received an advanced copy of this book via Netgalley in return for an unbiased review.) ( )

Annie Winters, 18 and formerly a total non-runner, is now training to participate in the Country Music Marathon in Nashville to honor her former boyfriend, Kyle, who died six months previously. They had dated for three years, and both thought eventually they would marry. Running a marathon was Kyle’s dream, and Annie blames herself that Kyle couldn't finish it.

She hired a marathon trainer, Matt Brown, and he drives Annie relentlessly. Matt is assisted by his younger brother Jeremiah (“Jere”), 20, who seems to have fallen into InstaLove with Annie. Annie is attracted to Jere, but Jere is into extreme sports, and Annie is terrified to get attached to him; what if something happens to him too? The risk of caring is too high, she thinks, and insists they just be friends.

As it happens, Jere attends the same nearby college - Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), where Annie is starting in the fall. So it seems like the stars are aligning in their favor. But then something does happen to Matt, and Annie has to come to a realization about her life and how she should live it.

Discussion: Kenneally is an appealing writer, using just the right mix of teenage patois to make her characters sound authentic. I also enjoyed the way the format of the book resembled a runner’s journal. The details of training for the marathon were made interesting enough, and integrated well enough into the story, to add a lot of interest (as well as to make me feel guilty for sitting on the couch to read about it).

There were some issues left dangling: possible eating disorders of her roommates? the not-totally-resolved tension between Annie and her BFF Kelsey? the cause of and/or resolution to Jere’s addiction to extreme sports?

Evaluation: There is a lot good about this book. I really liked the relationships portrayed between Annie and her family, and especially, between Jere and his family. I loved the ending too; it seemed just perfect. I would have liked the book overall a lot more had it not been for the curious case of Jere’s InstaLove. ( )
