Angela's Review: Not Yet by Laura Ward


Kindle Edition254 pages
Published July 25th 2014 by Life Changing, LLC

Emma Harris is learning that life is just a series of lessons. 

Lesson #1: Nothing goes the way you plan. 
Lesson #2: You can’t trust men. Especially not the pretty ones. 
Lesson #3: Turns out, appearances are almost always deceiving. 

Emma thinks she has life all figured out, and what she knows isn't good. For years, she’s put her big sister, who was born with Down syndrome, first. Now Emma’s ready to start her own life, but fate has other plans. To do the right thing for the sister she loves, Emma’s dreams will just have to wait. 

She doesn't plan on meeting Landon — a rich, flirtatious jock, who never has to wait for anything. Not for attention, not for money, and certainly not for girls. Meeting Emma marks the first time in his life that he’s had to fight for something. And Landon doesn't know how to lose. 

Emma has no interest in wasting her summer with a superficial guy like Landon. But very soon she realizes she is wrong about him. The question is, can she trust him? Or will he let her down like every other guy in her life? But most importantly, can Emma trust herself enough to live the life she's always dreamed of? 

Life has a way of sneaking in the most important lessons when you aren't looking. And once the heart gets involved, that's when the real learning begins. 

*** This book is intended for mature audiences. 18 and over!

Barnes and Noble:

Landon is worthy of your time

I can't express how much I loved Emma and Landon's journey from friendship to love. This book was very well written. It really does show just how people can change and grow into amazing individuals. I loved how the author expressed love and understanding for special people with intellectual disabilities. As a parent of a child with autism it both pained me and touched me to read about Trevor, Evie, Garret, Billy, Amy and every other special person in this book. 

I really do wish there were more people in this world like Landon who came to love special needs people not because he had to but because he wanted to. I would highly recommend this book. I bet you won't see the plot twist coming!! This author is new to me but I look forward to reading more of her books.
