Review: Fearless by Devon Hartford

fearlessFearless by Devon Hartford

At the age of sixteen, Samantha Smith’s innocence was shattered in the blink of an eye. She kept the pain to herself for three years, burying her terrible secret beneath black clothes and black makeup, afraid to tell anyone. The price for her silence was the loss of her happiness and all of her friends.
After moving from stuffy Washington D.C. to laid back San Diego, where Samantha is now a freshman at San Diego University, she is determined to find new friends and reclaim her optimistic spirit. Having thrown away her goth exterior, she hopes that her new sunny look will heal her wounds.
Dreaming of adventure, she wishes to escape the humdrum middle-class existence that has repressed her fiery nature for as long as she can remember. But her parents are pressuring her to major in Accounting because it’s the safe thing to do. Samantha secretly considers ditching the business major to study Art, a choice that would horrify her parents if they ever found out.
When Samantha crosses paths with a troubled, handsome, tattoo-clad bad boy, her life spins into overdrive, and Samantha finds herself juggling more adventure than she ever dreamed possible.

When I first heard about this book. I had to read it. I was very surprised at the depth of the female character. The empathy he has for his characters is so unique; not many men can pull that off.

It starts off  with Samantha moving to San Diego for college. She meets Christo when he comes to her aid and later finds him in her nude model class. I would have loved to be a fly on that wall.

The book was written in a youthful and hip style that would be appealing for more savvy readers but I don’t think I would class this as Young Adult. There is a lot of Adult situations and it can get very steamy and hot.

What I took away from the book was that some times you have to let go and trust again. Trying to let a new person into an already battered psyche is very difficult but worth trying when you find the special someone. Fans of H.T. Night will love this series.

Fearless was a very surprising book and I would be very keen to read more in the series. I think Devon Hartford has a very prolific career ahead of him.
