Freeing Asia (Breaking Free, #1) - E.M. Abel 4.5 Stars! Awesome Debut Novel!So growing up I LOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVED Skater guys! I wore baggy clothes, had a skateboard, and busted my ass on a few half pipes. So then I hear there is a book with a hot, tatted up skateboarder and I am THERE!The book starts with Asia who is growing up in a house full of guys and she is a major tomboy. She is very athletic and runs ( Yes, I said she runs!), surfs, and skateboards.As a teenager she is in love with her brother Shaun's friend, Marcus and loses her virginity to him. He up and leaves for L.A. to become a pro skater. Fast forward 7 years and Asia is still a lonely tomboy trying to find herself. She gets a makeover from Nick, her funny gay BFF, and she is on FIRE! HOT!Her friends talk her into going to the club where she gets into a fight and it leads her to meet rich hottie, Jay. She enjoys her relationship with Jay even though she sometimes doesn't feel she can be herself around him. "His life is full of champagne and caviar while mine was filled with beer and barbecues." She goes to a BBQ at her dad's house and Marcus is in town! Holy Shit! The feelings all come rushing back. "I'll always love you but I need to learn to love myself."She then has to decide which guy she wants as well as trying to finally find herself and her direction in life. "So, this is how it feels to fly." I like this book because it was easy to relate to. Plus there is a lot of:and definitely alot of thisso that makes this bookThere were a few minor things I didn't care for but overall I didn't let it take away from the story. While this book is a standalone, (which is fucking awesome) I am so looking forward to Shaun's bookARC copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review
