Author: Gillian Felix

Genre: New Adult

Publication Date: July 25, 2013

Description:

Adriana Banovic’s 15th birthday sucked! She got fired after eight years of playing Shayanne Montgomery on the #1 soap in the country, found out that her family was on the verge of bankruptcy and worst of all, forced to return to Westwood Academy. Her only saving grace was a chance glance at dreamy mystery boy Haze Lyndon. Armed with only his picture and a determination to find him—even if it means turning Los Angeles over on its ass. 

In this new adult novel you’ll meet Robin Banovic, Adriana’s father; financially challenged, dealing with the death of a family member and his brother’s disappearance. You’ll meet Savannah DaCosta aka Savi, mother/manager; Savi enjoys the life her rock star daughter Leighann has provided. When Leighann makes a choice to end her career, Savi sees it as a personal attack. You’ll meet college boy Haze Lyndon; New to Los Angeles, Haze soon realizes how quickly money changes hands in the City of Angels. Will he return to questionable ways to survive or go back to the safety of his family in Wisconsin?

 This novel is NOT for children, it contains strong language, reference to drug use and sexual situations, this novel is meant for mature teens and adults.

Review:

Changes is a good book as far as it goes. There are a lot of characters whose paths eventually cross and it’s a little difficult keeping them all straight at first, but by the middle of the book I was able to keep track. 

I like Gillian Felix’s writing style. It’s easy to read and it flows well.

I recommend Changes but I would wait until Vol. 2 is out before reading this one. It’s basically an introduction to a series, as noted by the author below, and it ends just as things begin to happen.  

You can purchase it on Amazon.
