    1. Before you read my thoughts, you might want to know that everyone else seems to have loved this book, which means that you might want to take my review as one negative among many positives Chances are, you could fall in love with Love and Skate, and you should probably read other reviews in order to get both sides of the picture My mood was not there, so I m not sure how much of my dislike stemmed from real life crap, and how much came from an actual dissatisfaction with what was going on in the [...]


    2. Like most books I readI just go into them blind don t read the synopsis or reviews I had no clue what this book would be about or what genre it was in With all that said it was a sweet and innocent read young adult Nelli and Owen Will they be able to control their urges so she can wear a white and have a SERIES No cliffhangers


    3. This, along with Lila s other books, are amazing They have depth, soul, meaning, characters who are real and believable, NO love triangles, and swoon Lots of swoon Owen was amazing And the skating parts, though small, was really interesting and funny I like how the conflict didn t drag on for chapters after chapter after chapter Lila has a point and she gets there in perfect timing.6 out of 5 stars


    4. This book was great I don t think Lila Felix can write anything but great I loved Owen do guys like that really exist I know he wasn t perfect but still wonderful His family was great too Nellie was so fun and spunky but had a really sweet side Great read


    5. Honestly, this was delightful Nellie Forrester is the epitome of a roller derby queen When she s facing off against competitors, she s rebellious, tough, nasty, out front, and immensely talented Away from the rink, things are a little different Misunderstood and unaccepted by her family, Nellie s been hurt, personally, and it s taken a toll Owen Black understands all too well Betrayal and hurt lead him to experiment with all sorts of negative influences He s made it most of the way back, but the [...]


    6. A book that put a curve in my reading, I needed something different Its cute, adorable, and completely a love story of two people who fall in love You follow Owen and he woos his NellieI have to say the girl on the cover does not go with the Nellie in my head but Owen is another story image error Owen has feared to trust again falling in love he thinks that if he falls in love again, he will get his heart broken and not be able to survive this time around image error Nellie was a sweet girl who [...]


    7. You can read this review and on my blog It has been a REALLY long time since I read this book, but since I am trying to take a trip down memory lane and review books I read a while ago, I had to review Love and Skate.I am always searching for the perfect cute read, a book that gives me the gift of a smile that last for an entire day But you would be surprised how difficult it is to find a book that fits this description It seems like 90% of books find it necessary to put the reader through the [...]



    8. I love love stories, I mean who doesn t love those clich sweet stuffs from time to time And I also love skating though I m really not a pro at it , so stumbling into a book with a love and skate at the title, I immediately added it up to my TBR pile and luckily, the author Lila Felix gave me a copy and voila I finally get the chance to review it for y all.Diving into the world of Love and Skate, I really didn t know what to expect It was like when its your first time to step into a skating rink [...]


    9. NA romance is like a packet of Allen s Lollies sometimes, you ll get a handful of your faves, and sometimes you ll get one or two liquorice flavoured jelly babies which will ruin your day.Well Love and Skate was definitely not a liquorice jelly baby unless you happen to love liquorice flavoured confectionary Love and Skate is a NA romance with a punk twist, introducing two characters who you will grow to love, root for, and cry over during the course of this novel.The first of them, being our ma [...]


    10. Love Skate is my first exposure to Lila Felix s books After reading this book I had to ask myself, why am I just now reading her work Love Skate weaves a beautiful love story between Nellie Owen Owen sign These two first set eyes on each other across the room in their American Lit class it s love at first sight for both of them Fate however, is not on their side as the two literally keep missing each other around campus When Nellie Owen do finally meet, they discover their missing half soulmate [...]


    11. The first time I proposed we were in your bed, the second time in front of my family and this time, it s just me and you again I hurt you once, broke your heart I ll spend the rest of my life trying to fix it Will you marry me, take a chance on me again This is another case of literally not judging the book by it s cover or title because I kinda not like the cover though the girl is gorgeous so I wasn t really expecting anything But oh boy, this was actually so good And this is the first time th [...]

    14. Where to start with this review Man can I just first start by saying that Lila Felix has an incredible knack for writing She writes these incredible stories with these kick butt girls and these swoon worthy bad boys Lord Love and Skate had me on a roller coaster of a ride I was laughing one minute then crying the next Have you ever loved someone so hard and given your all for them to turn around and rip your heart out and stomp on it Have you ever had a best friend betray you by dating your ex W [...]


    15. The only thing I know of roller derby is from Ellen Page s movie Whip It and honestly it looks vicious But besides being Nellie s hobby, it doesn t play that big of a role in this book actually The gruesome details are, maybe for the best, kept to the minimum.Nellie has indeed been hurt in the past, which made her stop pretending and now she s finally being herself, piercings, colorful hair and all that So she has this whole badass look going on, but really she s just the very opposite on the in [...]


    16. BOOK REVIEW by Michelle 25th February 2013 RATING 4.25 OWEN FALCON STARS Big thankyou to Lila Felix for my review copy of Love and Skate, I love the cover it gave me a nice visual for Nellie Nellie and Owen are two people who have individually had their hearts broken by an ex This story is told in alternating pov s, which I enjoyed Nellie claims a different hair colour when the mood arises She attracts Owen s attention wearing smurfette blue and he is blown away I had never seen her before and I [...]


    17. This book was sooooo cheesy omg At first, I was ok with it because it was a basic happy go lucky, instalove type of romance Unfortunately, the book takes a big nose dive when Ayden Lucas appears His role made no sense, and then he just disappears after the incident, like nothing happened Seriously, he doesn t even explain anything, or apologize for putting the moves on Owen s fiancee He just gets beat up and that s where his 15 minutes of fame ends That whole scene was so melodramatic In my opin [...]


    18. I absolutely love Lila Felix I have read all of her books and have thoroughly enjoyed every single one I thought Love and Skate was the best one so far I don t know if I can pinned exactly what made this book the best, but I guess I would have to say it was the characters.Owen and Nellie I thought they were amazing characters I truly connected with both of them Owen was so sweet and kind to Nellie His only problem was that he couldn t get out of his own head Once he did that things got much bett [...]


    19. It seems like almost everyone loved this book I didn t It started out sweet enough with both characters falling for each other And I liked Nellie as well as Owen, they were both good characters And Owen s family was a joy, Nellie s not so much All this I liked What bothered me was that everything was happening so fast They fell in love, they said I love you after a week, they got engaged shortly after that etc Everything was going super fast and with their similar backgrounds I expected both of [...]


    20. Got it for free on kindle Some glaring editorial errors Overall a fairly well done self published piece It definitely could have used some editing for grammar and story flow That said it was interesting enough to keep me going.





    21. 4.5 stars I had never seen her before and I couldn t for the life of me comprehend why She was drop dead gorgeous with the most perfect pair of legs not to mention she had hair the colour of a smurf s ass Nellie is not your typical college student, she captain of a roller derby team, she has piercings, tattoos and wild color hair that she changes often But don t judge a book by its cover, she is a sweet heart Nellie has a rough relationship with her parents, she doesn t fit their ideal imagine f [...]

    23. So, I opened up book one, Love and Skate, wondering what in the world was I going to encounter I mean, ok, so we have a derby skaterwhat kind of story am I gonna get Well, let me say, it is a mind blowing story From start to finish, I was captivated by the two main characters, Nellie and Owen, and highly intrigued with secondary characters that really added flair in some interesting scenes But, lets focus on the main ones for this point We start out being introduced to Nellie, our derby skater, [...]


    24. 2.5 StarsPre Falling in Love Review Sorry For what I couldn t imagine what he was sorry for A girl once told me that the amount of food I ate was sickening She was nuts I want some pom poms so I can cheer you on It s mesmerizing Nellie and Owen both believe that they scare off the opposite gender with their tattoos and piercings Both are crushing on each other before they even meet I love how cool they play it when they do actually meet But they also don t waste anytime acknowledging their insta [...]


    25. So, I know that y all have seen my previous post of Lila Felix s other books, Emerge and Perchance, and how much I loved them.When she contacted me about this book I jumped at the chance However, there is a problem with this book that got me so upset at Lila I mean really upset Let me explain In Emerge she gave us Carlos and in Perchance she gave us Cooper Now, I was hoping to downsize my Fictional Boyfriend list Well, HOLY STARS Lila did not help with this goal of mine Because she wrote this am [...]


    26. Im really not sure how I feel about this book It started out great The characters introduced were interesting at first I thought we were building up to something great But I felt like the story didn t go anywhere It was pretty much a book about two people who insta loved each other in a week s time, while the male protagonist agonized over his bad breakup resulting bad past it was all so trite.Yes, I just used the word trite.As far as female leads go, Nellie was ok Cute, quirky, sweet, caring so [...]
