BOOK REVIEW: How It Rolls by Lila Felix

Goodreads description:

Despite the odds, Reed Wolfe is making it, by the skin of her teeth. Her dreams and aspirations will have to wait until she can get on her feet. Because right now she’s homeless and churning on a downward spiral. 
Falcon Black is existing. Not living, not thriving, just jutting along a path. But when he finds Reed, he can’t resist the urge to help her, lighten her load. But Falcon tends to go overboard, over the line, crossing boundaries he never thought he would and risking her trust in the process. 
Can she accept his love or will it end up smothering her?

Mary's Review

Ok, I am going to tell you all a story.  No, I am not an author but this book has a little bit of special feeling for me.

Several weeks ago, Lila Felix sent me a Facebook message and told she was putting up a blog post.  Well, I got excited because I though "New Book" or "Giveaway" or something exciting.  Well, let me tell you that my heart stopped......YES ACTUALLY STOPPED when I saw this:

You can click on it and read the article.  

I teared up and thought "OMG! What did I do?".  I love Lila, very much actually.  She has because a dear friend and I could not figure what I did.  Well, after I read the article and figured out the issue, I signed a breathe of relief! See when I reviewed Lila's book Hoax I stated her books were too short.  I never meant for it to be rude or hurtful but Lila actually took my advice (*insert fan girl scream*) and How It Rolls is 252 pages!! YES!!

Now onto the review:

Best part of the book: WOW! Just ... WOW! I have loved everyone of Lila's book.  Emerge is my favorite, until this one.  How It Rolls is a spin off of Love & Skate, this is actually Falcon's story.  I loved Falcon because he is not what he seems.  He has a mohawk, tattoos and you are thinking "rock band"...WRONG! He is in college and has a way with numbers and money! Faclon's path soon crosses with Reed.  Oh Reed *sniff* I wanted to reach through my Kindle and just hug her.  She has had such a tough life and Falcon cannot seem to get enough of her.  Along with their story we get an extended story of Nellie and Owen.  Of course, Lila through in some twist that made me *gasp* *cry* and *yell* and I loved every word.

Not so great about the book:  Ugh, the ending!  I wanted more! I could not get enough of this story!  Luckily, Lila is doing another spin off for Maddox's story and I hoping that there is more Falcon and Reed in it.  AND  since this one was 252 pages, maybe I could get 275 or even 300!  

Have to wait and see!
