Book Tour Review: Arrows by Melissa Gorzelanczyk

Author: Melissa Gorzelanczuk
Published On: 1/26/16
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Page Count: 240
Synopsis: (Found on Goodreads)
People don’t understand love. If they did, they’d get why dance prodigy Karma Clark just can’t say goodbye to her boyfriend, Danny. No matter what he says or does or how he hurts her, she can’t stay angry with him . . . and can’t stop loving him. But there’s a reason why Karma is helpless to break things off: she’s been shot with a love arrow.
Aaryn, son of Cupid, was supposed to shoot both Karma and Danny but found out too late that the other arrow in his pack was useless. And with that, Karma’s life changed forever. One pregnancy confirmed. One ballet scholarship lost. And dream after dream tossed to the wind.

Overall Rating: 5/5
Greek mythology meets Teen Mom is a prefect comparison to Arrows. This was a quick read and one that I will be passing on to a close friend. The element of dancing was intriguing but what really made this for me was the idea that its alright to put yourself before others.

This is so simple and adorable. I really like this. In fact my dad and I made a cover with a arrow heart to match. Sometime simple covers like this is all it takes to catch a person`s eye.

Karma: Even when she wants to give up she never does. She has this drive that I see in some of my friends who are younger moms. She wants to make a great life for her and her daughter even if that means staying with a man who doesn`t understand her anymore. She is the girl that has a beauty around her but doesnt let it go to her head. She is smart and sweet and knows that even when you make a mistake you have to learn from it and move on.

Aaryn: Yes he F****d up but at least he does try to make things right and he feels guilty about it all. He fights for what he believes is true even though he doesn`t understand how humans work.

Danny: Just NO, Karma could have left this (insert not nice word here) even after being hit by an arrow. She didn't though because she hoped to find the person he use to be and pull him back from the shadows.
