Book Review+Release Goodies: That Girl by H.J. Bellus

Title: That Girl

Author: H.J. Bellus

Genre: Romance

Release Day: August 12, 2014


This book is about That Girl…

The girl who leaves behind her past, including her name; runs away from home and vows to never let another identity claim her again. Broken dreams, an abusive step-dad and ugly memories from her childhood are the only shattered remnants that have the ability to haunt her. 

With no money, an endless blank slate laying ahead of her and no hopes for the future, she sets out to survive at minimum wage jobs, moving from town to town, changing her name with each move, and never allowing glimpses of her past to threaten her empty future. 
Average in every way, from her looks to her personality and even her style, there is not much to remember about her. When she abandons one town for another, she leaves behind her fake identity in the search of the next one, while leaving people asking themselves, “I wonder what ever became of that girl.”

This was her reality until Lincoln Wilks.

The number one defensive football player in Fort Collins who finally names That Girl.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A gifted copy was provided by the author for an honest review.

I'm a bit speechless right now. This has to be one of the best books I've read this summer. It's touched me in ways I didn't think it would. Every element of this book is unique and they all mesh together. The title is genius. It sums up this book so well, but it's not something you can understand until you've read this book from front to back and all over again. Who is that girl? Where is she from? What does she do? Who is she?

  "Never let a name or circumstance define you."

That girl. She's had herself a crappy life until she turns eighteen and decides she's going to rule her own life and not let others control her destiny. She won't be happy until she's over 1,000 miles from her childhood town. She can't breathe until she knows they won't come for her. She will never truly live until she's able to stop being that girl. It's not until she meets Lincoln Wilks that her life finally, finally starts to make sense to her.

  "One day you'll realize you're worth fighting for."

Overall, this book is soul searching. It makes me feel like their is a greater plan for us all. For that girl to lead the life she does, H.J. Bellus has created the heroine every man wants and every girls looks for in themselves: someone strong, someone kind, someone real. I'm giving this book 5 STARS out of 5 STARS. Let this book reach you in the deepest way it can!
