Review: In an Instant by Janae Mitchell

by Claire Rees

cover In an Instant

As I sat on Bri's window seat, pretending to read, I couldn't help but watch the pool below, and how Kaden couldn't seem to keep his hands off of Brooke. I couldn't blame him, though. If I was a guy, I'd probably have a hard time keeping my hands off her, too.

The Review

We meet Emersyn, she has been in love with her best friends brother, Kaden, for years. But he has always seemed to like her only as a little sister. Everyone else can see that she is in love with him apart from Kaden.

They spend most days together with his sister, Emersyn's best friend, at their house, growing closer and closer. But only as friends, like brother and sister.

Then everything changes, Kaden is in a life threatening motorcycle accident and loses multiple limbs. Due to internal injuries the doctors are not sure he will survive and Emersyn decides to tell him how she feels, he says it back but she is not sure if it is because he is high on medication or if he means as a sister so she just a take it that way.

An intense emotional roller coaster this story brought me to tears. It is extremely well written and will have the reader experiencing all of the emotions with the characters as if they were part of the story. If too enjoy stories about overcoming huge obstacles, first loves, the inner strength of some peoples will never to give up, to keep fighting for the life they have then this is the story for you. This is one of the best stories I have read all year.

  1. Wow! Powerful stuff...and now I definitely want to know what happens. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

    1. It's an amazing read and I couldn't out of down

  2. It sounds like the author was able to pull off what she set to accomplish very well. I am glad you liked this one so much. I can't even imagine how difficult it must have been for Kaden to adjust after the accident. I am glad he had someone like Emersyn in his corner.

  3. Sounds like a very touching story. I can't imagine how horrible it must be to lose multiple limbs!
