(Blog Tour) Review, Excerpt, and Giveaway: Chasing Forever Down by Nikki Godwin

Chasing Forever Down by Nikki Godwin


Title: Chasing Forever Down (Drenaline Surf #1)
Author: Nikki Godwin
Date of Publication: March 14, 2013
Genre: contemporary YA romance with sports

Blurb:

After seventeen-year-old Haley Sullivan meets a mysterious stranger who plays by his own rules, she's more than determined to learn every trick of the trade from the master himself. But her dream-chasing mentor disappears after that night, and according to the local newspapers, he's been dead for years. Knowing he's very much alive, Haley enlists best friend Linzi to join her on a scavenger-hunt-style road trip that ultimately lands them in the surf town of Crescent Cove, California. Mystery guy is no mystery here, though – he's Colby Taylor, the west coast's biggest professional surfer. 

If Haley wants to talk to the wave rider again, she'll have to get past his four intimidating bodyguards who are highly skilled in the business of sending starstruck fangirls back to where they belong. Haley is up for the challenge if it means chasing her dreams and escaping the perfectly corporate future that's been planned for her. But dealing with these bodyguards isn't exactly what Haley imagined it'd be. Sure, being thrown off a jet ski sucks, but falling in love with one of them might just be worse.

Excerpt 2
“Whoa!” Alston yells out.
I look back. His lips keep moving, but I can’t hear anything over the roaring of A.J.’s jet ski.
“– the hell!?” is all I catch. I throw my arms into the air and shake my head as Alston moves toward me.
“What the hell are you doing?” he asks once he’s within earshot. He motions at A.J., but I know he’s talking to me.
“Jet skiing,” I say. “You know, most people wear lifejackets. I thought that was normal.”
He points at A.J. “You’re seriously getting on that with him? Are you crazy? No one has ever ridden with A.J. Well, except that one time Reed did. He still has the scar to show for it.”
My blood boils as hot as this raging summer sun. This whole jet skiing with A.J. deal was a ploy, just like I thought. He’s probably rocked his mechanical bull moves on that yellow jet ski for a thousand girls. I bet he blew cigarette smoke on them and wrapped his arm around their pretty tan shoulders and told them how wave jumping with him would be the most badass experience of their lives. And at that point, the girls decided to take turns riding with Alston or they found another chiseled beach bum to waste their time with. None of them ever dared to get on the back of Jailbird Gonzalez’s jet ski.
But I do.

Review:

Haley met a mysterious guy at a party that her parents makes her go to.  She doesn’t want to be at the party so when the guy asks her to ditch with him she is more than happy to go along even if she doesn’t know the guy and she even promise to meet him the next day.  When he fails to show up the next day, she ends up chasing him across the country to find him.  Along the way she makes friends with amazing people and she even finds love.

I keep putting off reading this book and I regret it.  It’s such a good book that once I started it I can’t stop reading it.  I want to know what’s going to happen next so I end up reading it in one sitting.  It’s an exciting and fun adventure that Hayley experiences and I have a lot of fun reading her story.  This book is very unique and the storyline is amazing.  I really, really like it.  This book is definitely not a waste of time.  I’m really excited for the next book because I really want to know what will happen to all of the characters.  All the characters are very different and unique in their own way.  I recommend this book to everyone.  It’s a must read if you haven’t read it yet.  This author is amazing so I’ll be checking out her other books in the future
