A Son of Carver
(Carver High Novel)

by Haven Francis

A Son of Carver was be released on May, 17th, 2016

Sometimes the best version of yourself is the one you can only see through someone else’s eyes. But what happens when those eyes belong to the one person you don’t want them to?

Thanks to her father’s affair and her parent’s resulting separation, Presley Knox has been ripped from her life in California and dropped into an abyss in the middle of Georgia. With her alternative looks and creative spirit, trying to find her place in a sea of jocks and cheerleaders is hard, but doing it while living with her cousin who belittles her every chance she gets is almost impossible. There is one person in Carver who embodies everything Presley hates about her new life and she can’t help but use him as the outlet for all of her frustrations. 

Nash Carter’s bad boy image isn't a façade; he drinks too much, sleeps around, makes his money street racing and has zero plans for his future beyond living a rowdy life with his like-minded dad and older brother. His good looks, cut body and popularity have always gotten him anything and anyone he’s ever wanted. That is until Presley Knox showed up at Carver High.

Nash knows to steer clear of Presley and her sharp tongue that’s always aimed at him. But that becomes impossible when they’re paired together for a semester-long photography assignment that promises to push them into the depths of each other’s personal lives. In order to survive the semester, Nash implements a new strategy: get the one girl who’s immune to his charm to change her mind about him.

With Nash’s unwavering pursuit to know everything about her, and with the nagging voice inside her head that’s insisting there’s more to him than she’s letting herself see, Presley struggles to keep her wall firmly in place. When it slowly begins to crumble, Nash wonders if he should have kept his distance after all because the girl that’s been hiding under Presley’s hard shell is breaking his heart wide open. 

Nash has been a lot of things to a lot of girls, but Presley’s the only one he’s ever wanted to shelter and protect. But how is he going to do that when he knows she’s right to keep their friendship a secret in order to protect herself from him? 

Due to mature language and content, A Son of Carver is intended for readers 17+. It can be read as a standalone or as book two in the Carver High series.

DISCLAIMER: I received a coy of this book (via YABoundBookTours) in exchange for an honest review. Contains spoilers (due to a brief quote from the book).

My Rating: 5 of  5 Stars.
I want to marry Nash. I wish he was real. The way he treats Presley is so . . . He's literally the perfect book boyfriend. The author's writing is phenomenal. Presley's self-esteem issues are something to consider, because there are girls like this everywhere, who don't like their bodies. Like what the summary says above:

Sometimes the best version of yourself is the one you can only see through someone else’s eyes.
I love Nash's friendship with Summer in the beginning. The bond they have, because their exes got together with each other, makes you think they have something going, but they don't. There is a brother/sister kiss, which is totally awkward, but cutesy and funny. Was hooked from the start, and I have actually read this book three times since receiving it. I wonder if Haven plans to write a story for Summer and . . . . I'm shutting up. *WINKS* Grab yourself a copy and join me for a round of swoons. ♥
