Welcome to  my post for the Play of Light book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a $50 gift card and a copy of Play of Light. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

Play of Light
Release date: December 8, 2014
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

I lived in paradise, and I loved Spencer Pierce.

At fourteen, my life was perfect. The beach was my playground, and the boy who stole my heart lived just around the corner. But perfect never lasts. In one horrifying moment, I lost it all. My family was destroyed, and the boy I believed in turned his back on me. Paradise became a nightmare.

That was five years ago. Everything changed when we moved from our home by the sea. I’ve changed, and I don’t like who I’ve become. I miss the smiling, carefree beach girl who disappeared that terrible night. I want to find her again. I want to face the people we ran from so long ago. Most of all, I have to face Spencer. So I can prove that when he broke my heart, he didn’t break me.

But when I see him again, Spencer Pierce is no longer the boy from my memories. He’s now a man who could devastate me if I let him. He watches me when he thinks I’m not looking. There’s regret written on his face when he’s near. Each time I see him, my heart aches for what might have been, and I think his does too. How can I convince myself I’m over him when I suspect he never got over me?

~ This is a standalone story. ~

My Rating: 3 Roses

A sweet New Adult romance about a love that finally had a chance to bloom, Play of Light was a nice book and I enjoyed it.

Both characters were good. Sarah was resilient and determined when she set her mind to something. Spencer was a sweetie who cared deeply for his loved ones and tried to protect them, no matter what. I liked both of them.

The romance was very sweet. Sarah and Spencer had loved each other from when they were young and they finally had a chance to be together. I thought they were a lovely couple.

The pacing was what dropped the book for me. For the first half of the book, I was only vaguely interested. I think it was because a large chunk of the beginning was devoted to portraying the past, rather than getting on to the present, which was what I was really interested in. But, for the second half, I got fully drawn in and engaged in the story. So, overall, I liked the story.

Play of Light was a good New Adult romance. It might not have been perfect, but it was a nice read that I enjoyed. Romance lovers, you might want to check this one out.
