Product Description

Mia Lee has a secret…

A secret she’s kept hidden since she was eight years old, however, Mia will no longer allow that secret to define her.

An irrevocable decision has left Mia Lee a fugitive and on the run—a circumstance that should leave her weak and scared, yet Mia has never felt so alive.

Under the pseudonym of Paige Cassidy, Mia is ready to live the life she’s never had, and she’s determined not to allow her tainted past dictate her promising future.

Paige is on a Greyhound bus heading from L.A. to South Boston, Virginia, to start a new life.

A life that includes finding her mother, who abandoned her at age three. But what she finds, is four people, who will change her life forever.

Yet no one can outrun their past…

Especially one filled with bitter memories, which refuse to remain hidden.

Reviewer: Lynn
Disclosure: This ebook was provided by the author in exchange for a HONEST and not necessarily positive review.

Mia Lee's life has been anything but normal. After her mother left her as a toddler, with her father who is a drug addict, she is forced to support his habit. It's not until she's nineteen she finds away of escaping. She hops on a greyhound bus and becomes Paige Cassidy.

There are so many twists and turns in this book. It keeps you turning pages. From Mia, trying to learn what it means to be a normal teenager, to leaning how to be a friend. It was fabulous following Mia and her naivety. She's not sure about Quinn, and has hard as they try to avoid anything between them, attraction that strong doesn't stand a chance of being ignored.

All the characters in this book are amazing. I fell in love with them, Hank, Tabitha , Tristan and Quinn. It was like a band of misfits. They all had such different personalities but flowed together so well. The book makes you cry and feel a full range of emotions. Major cliff hanger at the end. Have to say, I didn't see that coming. The book will blow you away and leave you speechless.

SOMETHING LIKE NORMAL is the first instalment in Monica James’s contemporary, new adult series of the same name. The focus of the series is on nineteen year old Mia Lee (aka Paige Cassidy) and the horror that has been her life.

Told from first person (Mia/Paige) POV, the storyline premise follows Paige as she runs from her past. Landing in South Boston, Virginia with only a few dollars and a backpack with a little more, Paige will discover that sometimes family has nothing to do with the blood in your veins but the people you meet along the way. Much of the back story is told through flashbacks and nightmares.

Monica James pulls the reader into an emotional storyline where a young woman had to make a choice –a choice that haunts her sleep but a choice that had to be made. Meeting Quinn and Tristan Berkeley, Hank the motel operator and Tabitha (her new BFF), Paige learns what it means to be family-a family of misfits who are there when the world begins to spiral out of control.

There is a slight love triangle formula developing between Paige and the Berkeley brothers which amped up my anxiety with an already emotional and heartbreaking storyline. Tristan and Quinn’s family history is just a step up from Mia’s horrific past and Paige (Mia) will find a kindred soul mate in Quinn.

The secondary characters (Tabitha, Quinn, Tristan, Hank) play a major role throughout the story and become one another’s sole source of comfort and support. The world building brings the abhorrent face of abuse, betrayal, neglect and addiction –front and center-in a storyline that will tug at your heart and your soul.

Monica James writes a seductive story about one woman finding solace and support from the unlikeliest of people and places.

Something like...BRILLIANT!

Where to start with this!? I don’t want to give too much away, but this book was everything I could have wished for and more.

The plot, characters, dialogue, writing, just everything, was amazing!

Monica James’ writing sucks you in, and boy, was I sucked in.

This is not your typical love story, it is raw, and at times, a little hard to digest. But that prologue hooked me in, and I just couldn’t stop until the last page!

This is my favourite read for the year, and I cannot wait for book 2!

Monica, Monica, Monica, if you didn't live an ocean away, I would come to your house and demand you tell me the rest of this story...cause I don't want to wait to see what happens to MIA!!

Something Like Normal is a fast-paced, action packed story of Mia Lee and her journey as a survivor...who also finds a new family and friends along the way. But still...her past is right behind her and it isn't going away anytime soon.

So buckle up and get ready for a wild ride.

Kudos to you Monica for such a grand debut!
