From strangers to friends to lovers
If you like young adult romance novels with mysterious twists, you’ll love In another life by CC Hunter.
In another life is full of twists and turns that will keep you reading chapter after chapter. Personally, I have to read books with chapters that end on cliffhangers so I’ll keep reading.
Hunter does a fantastic job of hooking the reader into figuring out exactly what’s going on.
This adventure is full of dangers of its own, which is definitely up with Cash. This book features thrilling car chases, sweet interactions between two kids who fall in love and have a lot more in common than they think, and plenty of nail-biting twists and turns.
At the age of three, Chloe Holden started her new life with a new family after being adopted. After 14 years of living a perfect life with a loving, healthy family, separation runs its course and her world is turned upside down.
Not only did her parents just divorce, but her mother is recovering from breast cancer and her father is already pursuing another relationship. Shortly after moving to Texas with her mother, Chloe begins to experience deja vu.
As she begins to meet new people, she realizes something strange. The boy with whom she finds herself in contact is just as curious as she is.
Having been adopted himself, Cash Colton feels out of place in his own home. Despite being surrounded by a loving and caring family, Cash can’t help but fall into trouble.
As far as Cash can remember, his biological father was not loving and warm, but actually a criminal. In fact, at a young age, Cash had to participate in the crimes committed by his father. After living a lifestyle of crime and danger, he feels unworthy of the life his new family offers him.
After meeting Chloe, Cash realizes that she looks like the photos of the girl his foster family lost years ago. Determined to find answers and finally feel worthy of her adoptive parents’ love, Cash and Chloe set out on a journey together to uncover the details of Chloe’s adoption.
I absolutely loved the story of this book. I was hooked as soon as I read the summary.
Hunter packs the novel with chapters that leave you hanging on the edge of your seat. The author does a great job of making the characters interesting to the audience.
There are two main characters in In another life, Chloe and Cash. Chloé is someone with whom it is very easy to sympathize. Being a teenager is hard enough, but dealing with a divorce, your mother having cancer and your father moving on to another woman is a lot for anyone. On top of that, being adopted usually raises a lot of questions and leaves people curious about where they came from biologically. This is where Cash and Chloe relate.
However, while they have similarities, they are also very different. Money is used to living a life centered around using others to get what it wants. He’s a boy with a bad past who feels unworthy of a fresh start and the good things life has to offer.
In a way, Cash was the start of the new life Chloe was about to begin, whether she knew it or not. Putting two different characters in a situation where they depend on each other, to some degree, to find out the truth makes for a great story.
I love how throughout the story the characters develop and you can feel a personal attraction to them.
Overall this book was very well written and I can appreciate the twists and details that make the story what it is. On a scale of one to ten, I would give In another life an eight out of ten. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a book to really get lost in.
