Blog Tour- The Willows: Haven by Hope Collier

"When tragedy strikes, seventeen year-old Ashton Blake sets out on a cross-country road trip, leaving the comforts of Malibu for the mountains of Kentucky. Along the way, she encounters Gabe Willoughby—the mysterious drifter with eyes like the sea and a knowing smile. Getting to know Gabe raises questions about her past. But no secret can be buried forever, and Ashton soon finders herself in a world where water is air and myth becomes reality.

Just as Ashton comes to accept her newfound heritage, she’s summoned to fulfill a treaty laid down centuries before — a treaty that will divide her love and test her loyalty. In the end, her future isn’t her biggest concern, her humanity is. To run may mean war, but is she strong enough to stay?"

As soon as I saw this book, I was intrigued. It did have a way of sucking you in from the beginning and kept you reading to find out more. Collier brought me into the world of Nymphs in a really great and clever way. I will say that I think there were some plot issues, like the beginning never being truly explained, that bugged me. However, with there being more books in this series, I'm sure things will be answered.

The characters were well-written. Though Ashton was pushed into this new world, I like how she kind of learned as she went. Though I do believe she could've maybe asked a bit more about this crazy change into a new world, I thought she handled it in stride. I really wanted to like Ashton with Gabe, but I just couldn't do it. Even after a few weeks from reading it, I can't figure out why he just didn't do it for me. He was yummy, had that young rebellious thing going on...but I just couldn't accept him as a fictional book boyfriend. Don't get me wrong, their scenes were hot and I loooved how cute they were together with all the nicknames, cuddling and all around swoon-fest, but their relationship just didn't feel real for me. I think with a little development, it could've helped me love him and them a bit more. My favorite character was probably Ashton's BFF, Kyle. He was just so cute and boyish that I wanted to hang with him and eat ice-cream.

Overall, I think this was a pretty good start to a new series. Collier kept me trying to figure it out to the end, and I want to see what happens next in Ashton's new nymph world as she continues her adventure.
