Pushed by Corrine Jackson Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

PUSHEDheader


PUSHED takes place right where book one left off and let me tell you, I was so happy to be back in Remy's world. And while I enjoyed book one, this is a solid sequel that I highly encourage readers to pick up as soon as possible. Jackson is simply incapable of disappointing anyone. With that in mind, this is going to be a rather short review. It's hard to criticize something you don't have anything negative to say about unless you want to go into unnecessary word vomit. Let's not scar such a great author with that!

Remy is still on the hunt to find more information about becoming a healer. She's unique because she has the blood of both a Healer and a Protector inside of her, so she is constantly looking for answers in regards to her capabilities. She is determined to do anything to learn, including going to San Francisco, much against Asher's wishes, to find her grandfather that her mother said would always be there for her. But when is anyone ever able to hold Remy back? Of course her determination gets her to her final destination and Asher's love for her forces him to follow and all sorts of chaos immediately ensue. Seriously, though, we're talking about Remy. You can't hold her back and the chaos in her life is simply an inevitability.

In book one, I really enjoyed the progression of Remy and Asher's relationship, but I have to say that I didn't enjoy the romance in this book at all. Unfortunately, a love triangle has bloomed and it is no secret that love triangles are my poison. While the new love interest certainly adds some new dynamics to the story and has a completely different attitude that freshens things up, I can't say I enjoyed it all that much. I feel as if love triangles where both love interests are in the same family are really there more for induced drama and arguments to keep the plot going instead of anything else. I wish Jackson included a different kind of love interest since this is the route she chose to go.

However, with all of that in mind, I think this book was still a really enjoyable read and fans of Jackson and this series have to continue on to book two! No questions asked, this is a command by yours truly. The plot was fast-paced, the writing was great, and the story really engrossed you. I don't know about any of you, but I've got all of her books in my library back home and I'm diving in once the semester is over. She's that good.

Corrine Jackson was kind enough to share an excerpt of PUSHED with us. Check it out!


            “Asher, lower your guard.”

            “No, you’re right. That was a reckless idea. I don’t know what the hell I was thinking.”

            “You weren’t thinking. You were feeling,” I said, moving closer to him. Trust me. Lower your guard, I repeated in my thoughts. And close your eyes.

            He did as I asked.

            “Promise me you’ll stand still,” I whispered.

            He nodded after a slight hesitation. His heartbeat spiked when I laid a palm on his chest. His skin radiated heat, and I wanted to curl into it, but I took a deep breath. One of us had to be in control, so I raised my mental walls, knowing that when I felt this much, Asher could see through them. I opened my mind and let my imagination go, as I closed my eyes, too.

            I pictured myself touching him the way I wished I could without fear of repercussions. I pushed the coat off of his shoulders, letting it fall to the ground. My jacket and his T-shirt followed, leaving miles of skin and muscle for me to explore. I inhaled the scent of the woods mixed with that of Asher. In my mind, I placed one of his hands on my shoulder, bare except for the thin strap of a tank top. Then, mimicking what he’d done to me earlier, I trailed my fingers down his forearm, into the crook of his elbow, up his arm, and very lightly down his side.

            Asher’s real-life chest moved under my hand, as he sucked in a deep breath and I smiled. And then the mental version of me grazed her lips across Asher’s cheek to his mouth, sharing a breath with him. The kiss the imaginary me laid on him could have burned down the forest.

            “Remy,” Asher said.

            He sounded tortured, and I let the images fade from my mind, worried he hadn’t liked what I’d pictured. Back in the reality of the forest, we opened our eyes. My hand still rested against the thump, thump, thump of his heart.

            “You’re not the only one who’s frustrated,” I said.
