Review: Down From the Clouds by Marilyn Grey

Goodreads:  Gavin Kessler is one of the most sensitive and emotional people you'd ever know, except you'd never know it. Trying to find out how he feels is like pulling a one-hundred pound bucket of water out of a seventy foot well. But when he finally falls in love and meets the woman of his dreams, who is set on getting to know every part of him, for better or worse, his walls crumble as he is forced to stand face-to-face with the past he's been avoiding. 

Kritters Thoughts:  SPOILER ALERT
              Do not read further if you have not read the first in this series.  

Told completely from Gavin's perspective, he shares the beginning of his relationship with Ella and how he must deal with the past before he can truly move forward into a healthy relationship.  It was interesting to read this book from a male's perspective and see how vulnerable he was trying to be in the beginning of a relationship and how hard that can be.  I loved the new view of Ella as she wasn't telling the story and I definitely related to her at certain moments.  

Even though the book is told through Gavin's point of view, the author does a clean job of moving forward other character's stories to allow for the next book to take a look from another person's point of view.  

Although I think these books are a little on the dramatic side and some things come from left field, I am hooked and will definitely want to continue and complete this series as Marilyn Grey releases them!

Rating: a perfect beach read

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from the author.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
