HASH(0xa73a9210) out of 5 stars A Beautifully Written Contemporary Romance! Sept. 30 2012
By Stephanie Ward - Published on
Format: Paperback
In 'Derailed', a new adult contemporary romance, Molly's life is in ruins after the death of her fiance, Adam. She feels lost and alone, especially after dropping out of law school. Without anywhere else to go, Molly returns to her small hometown in North Carolina. Unexpectedly, she finds herself becoming more and more like the girl she used to be and also finds herself falling for the guy from her past. Will Molly's trip home be the key to her future?

This novel is a realistic look into the heart and mind of a twenty-something woman who has lost everything dear to her, as well as her way in life. Although the story is filled with heartbreaking pain and despair, which the author portrays in such a detailed way that the reader feels Molly's every emotion along with her, the light of hope also fills its pages. It's a story of finding oneself and beginning a new future - which is something that all readers can easily identify with. The novel is very well written and easily captivates the heart and mind of the reader from the very beginning. The characters are all very real and written in a way that makes you feel like you've known them forever. Although I normally don't like contemporary romances, the author did such a wonderful job with the engaging plot, underlying themes, and beautiful writing that I was won over early on. This is a wonderful new contemporary series from a very talented writer and one that I highly recommend.

HASH(0xa73a9264) out of 5 stars 4-Stars ~~ Quick Easy Read! Jan. 28 2013
By BBMoreB - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although, there were a couple places that I felt didn't transition proficiently this was a great read. Molly's character seemed extremely realistic - her reactions were often chaotic (unexpected). Typically this would make me crazy...I like a stable character. However, Molly's crazy mixed perfectly with Ben's steadfast patience; it made this story worth reading.

HASH(0xa73a9540) out of 5 stars Romantic but Lacks Memorable MC Dec 10 2012
By Lovey Dovey Books - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Derailed is a nice story that gives readers a taste of Alyssa Rose Ivy's writing for an older audience. Molly drops everything, leaving behind the tragic memory of a fiance and her goal to finish law school, and moves back to her small town home in North Carolina. She doesn't exactly return to happy feelings and wonderful memories, though. All that she ran away from in the first place, including high school sweetheart Ben, rushes to meet her at her front door.

Derailed's story line is interesting and definitely romantic, but I didn't go gaga over the main character. Molly was kind of flat and didn't have a unique characterization. I enjoyed reading her story and trying to figure out what was going through her mind, but Molly was very forgettable. Her high school sweetheart was determined, a gentleman, and the kind of guy every girl would love to meet. Ben didn't have as much page time as Molly but I felt he had more personality and was more well-rounded. He was the exact personification of a small town guy.

The romance of the novel is the better part of the plot. It's consistent, hot, and the kind of romance that radiates comfortable vibes. Molly and Ben's reconnection is sweet with hints of sultriness. I love that it was rough at first, their new connection began slowly and grew into something completely unexpected.

Derailed end on a note of Molly's closure with the past and opening to a future of new beginnings. It's like her story came full circle and she realized that she's found the place where the pieces fit and she can move on from past hurts. The Clayton Falls series is just beginning and I'm excited to see where it's headed!

HASH(0xa73a9a5c) out of 5 stars Did not get the hype with this one Dec 20 2012
By Francesca - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I could not get into this book. I had a hard time connecting with the main character, Molly. I know she had been through a lot but it didn't come across in the writing. Instead of feeling sympathy for her, I just found her annoying. One person's review of this book said it seemed amateurish, with a lot of dialogue - I agree. I think that's why I couldn't connect with Molly - there was a lot of talking without much introspection on her part.

And what was up with Ben and Gavin? They both seemed obsessed with Molly and I just didn't get it.

First there's Ben who is totally whipped. **Spoiler Alert** He automatically takes Molly back - completely forgiving the fact that she shattered his heart into a million pieces 5 years ago. He follows her around like a lost puppy and gets insanely jealous over nothing.

Then there's Gavin who is a total creeper. **Spoiler Alert** He meets Molly for 5 minutes and decides that she is the perfect girl for him. Then he keeps pushing the issue even after Molly has made it clear she was with Ben. At one point, he mentions something about kids (even if he was just "kidding"). Can we say coming on way too strong? I don't think they even knew each other for a week at that point.

I just don't see what all the hype is with this one. I actually ended up skimming the last 30% of the book because I just wanted it to end

None of these characters drew me... I never felt sorry for what's-her-face and didn't understand why her family allowed her to languish in her guilt for so long without assitance.

When her old flame was reintroduced into her life, I never thought they should resume their "high school sweetheart" romance. When Ben's brother, Jack, was brought into the story, I felt like he had a better connection and way more passion with whf than she did with Ben.

I skimmed and skipped much of the story just to reach the end.
