Author on Author Book Review ~ "Are You Mine?" by N.K. Smith

I have read several books by N.K. Smith and she never disappoints to create a brilliant story.

Title: Are You Mine?
Author: N.K. Smith
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: August 7th, 2013

Human connection? Who needs it?

Ever since she can remember, wealthy but weary Saige Armstrong has felt different from her peers in Pechimu, New Jersey. With only one good friend to her name, she has navigated the complicated halls of high school and is now faced with the timeless question: Now what?

Fox Harrington, a fun-loving, socially charismatic graffiti artist uses his passions to color his world how he wants it. He knows exactly where his life is headed. That is, until he meets Saige.

A summer project links the two together, making a tentative friendship bloom into romance, but despite their affection for each other, fundamental beliefs and ways of thinking threaten to destroy all they have built.

Add "Are You Mine?" to Goodreads

The lives of Saige and Fox have not been pleasant by any means. The ways they have dealt with the hand fate has given them are vastly different.

Saige has one person in her life, her best friend Myka. She has her writing, her independence, and plenty of money, but no direction in her life. As a new high school graduate, Saige has not determined whether she should go live on the beaches of California or attend NYU with Myka. When she bumps into Fox at a graduation party, everything changes and a new path emerges.

Fox is one of the most popular kids in school. Everybody loves him despite having to repeat two grades and graduating high school at age 20. The best way for Fox to express himself is through his art.

Myka forms a plan to get Saige and Fox together. She begs them to make a graphic novel for her with Saige's words and Fox's artwork.

As the pair get to know each other, Smith writes an emotionally captivating tale about two lost souls that grasp on to one another despite their tremendous obstacles. I laughed at Fox's knock knock jokes and smiled at Saige's sarcasm.

This story gives the reader an important insight as it is told in both Saige and Fox's points of view. I suggest this unique emotional adventure to any New Adult Romance fans. You will not be disappointed.
