Spiked has been out in the world for a week, generating wonderful reviews!
“Starting from the moving dedication to victims of trauma, to the very satisfying ending, this was not only a very engaging book, but also thought-provoking and inspirational.”
~Teresa from Goodreads
“I FLOVE MATEO AND JESSICA.
FLOVE, FLOVE, FLOVE.
I mean, come on, who wouldn’t like this broken guy who ends up being perfectly imperfect with a girl he never thought he would chance to meet. She is beautiful, smart, and yet utterly broken as well.
They build each other up as much as they break each other’s walls down.”
~Amy’s Review Obsession (this one made me laugh!)
The hero Mateo Ramirez is a singer/songwriter, so music is quite important to the story.
Which songs inspired SPIKED?
1) Lay it All on Me by Rudimental featuring Ed Sheeran
Let my love in, let my love in
Lay your heart on me
If you’re hurting, if you’re hurting
Lay it all on me
2) Make You Feel My Love by Bob Dylan
When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love.
3) Yesterday’s Songs by Neil Diamond
Baby, yesterday’s blues
May be yesterday’s news
But the truth always stays the same
And the good things will never change
Like sayin’ “I love you”
Just sayin’ “I love you”
