Book Report: You Out Of Nowhere by Jay E. Tria

by - November 17, 2017

When the signing up for this blog tour popped up on my Facebook timeline, I immediately knew there was no way in this world I won't be part of it. Because number one, it's another #romanceclass book, number two, it was Jay E. Tria. Her Playlist Series has always been my ultimate #romanceclass book favorite (Shinta is ♥) and now, I must say, this new book You Out Of Nowhere is my bookworm life's "the book out of nowhere"--yes. Because it came unexpected.

So, let me give you a quick look of what it's all about.

This is the first time I am reading this blurb (seriously). I figured it's a good and worth it read and so I didn't bother. So when I was reading the first few pages, I thought Kris was going to be another Jill-the-lead-vocals-of-Trainman sort of female character, with her band shirt and skirt. And with Ringo who appeared to be too nerdy upon reading a classic romance book in a public place, I immediately thought of Miki (another character from the Playlist series, so no, I am not a fan! hahaha). Was this going to be the love the could have been between Jill and Miki? NO. It was something more!

What I Think About It

I suck at pointing out the bad things, but I try really. So let me start with the many good things this book has to offer. That Seoul trip was the most fascinating thing I read in this book, maybe because it was too detailed from the street names to the available transportation and down to the weather. Everything in this book is super detailed it made me feel like I was watching one of my Kdramas instead. Speaking of super detailed, You Out Of Nowhere came unexpected because it contained the smut level I never learned to expect from Jay E. Tria's books. I mean, yes, there's cuddling and fondling in her books (at least the ones that I've read), but not as vivid as this one. And I should say, yes, she did decent smut scenes here.

I wasn't even planning to point out the age gap between the characters but let's do that since that's the most relatable part to me. Maybe I liked the fact that Kris appeared to tired of looking for her perfect match, because c'mon! Who has the time for all of that when you have a business/career to take care of and family and friends to cheer you up (this is just me, though)? But going back to the story, Ringo came into her life just like that, and they clicked even before they were introduced to each other by a common friend. For me, this is a simple reminder to all the hopefuls out there that maybe love isn't meant to be looked for because it's just going to pop out nowhere.

Perhaps the only thing I didn't like were the narration of the back story. I knew it was necessary for the readers to be able to understand the depths of what's going on, but it felt like too much information at once. Oh and yeah, it was good that Ringo's parents named him Ringo, and not Paul or John Lennon or maybe Elvis (did that even sound right?) because it made his character stand out a whole lot better.

You Out Nowhere is something that would remind all of us that love happens unexpectedly. It comes when you just got over a huge breakup or maybe just when you told yourself and your friends you're done with dating. And yes, the universe will conspire for you to take notice, no matter how many times you tell yourself you're going solo all the way. This is probably one of the best I've read from Jay E. Tria.

This book is currently available on Amazon for $1.99. Grab your copy now and let yourself open up to the possibility of falling in love again. ♥
