Review: Feeling This by Casey Blue

Amazon Buy Link


Whoever said life is hard didn’t know the half of it! 

Completely devastated when his life is ripped out from underneath him, Jordan Rhodes decides to take a break. A break from everything he’s always known; the country club life-style, his life-long friends and his overbearing parents. He just wants to be free to get lost and not feel the pain he has endured.

Kimber Maguire has been dealt the tough card her entire life. An ailing mom, a sister who refuses to face reality and a yearning for the one that got away, she finds putting one foot in front of the other as her only saving grace. What she really wants is to be free of feeling the pressure that is her life, free to get lost.

But when Jordan finds Kimber while losing himself, they both discover, sometimes you just need to feel to be found.

Elle says:

Feeling This was an emotional read full of twists and tears. I loved this book from start to finish!

Casey Blue uses dual points-of-view to follow the stories of Kimber Maguire and Jordan Rhodes. Two characters who hail from opposite upbringings but share in life’s struggles and heartbreak.

Kimber Maguire wasn’t born into money and wealth. She works two jobs, attends school, and is burdened with the responsibility of her ailing mother. Something I loved about Kimber’s character was that despite all of these circumstances, not once did her character complain. She is a strong and resilient woman who accepted her situation and dealt with it without hesitation.

Unlike Kimber, Jordan Rhodes has been raised among wealth and opportunity. There’s little he hasn’t been able to do or get at a moment’s notice. When his picture perfect world suddenly implodes, Jordan must start life over. I loved Jordan’s vulnerability throughout the novel.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a sort of role reversal throughout this novel. Where Kimber was stubborn and refused to break, Jordan often gave in to his guilt got lost in it at times.

I was hooked by the story from start to finish. The plot is quick to grab your attention and delivers numerous twists I hadn’t expected. There are a lot of emotionally heavy moments, and I found myself crying along with the characters. Casey Blue shows that life is gritty, unpredictable, and a constant work in progress.

Feeling This is a beautifully written novel about accepting life’s obstacles and finding the best possible outcome for the situations you’ve been dealt. I highly recommend this novel, so one-click it if you haven’t gotten your hands on it already!
