Title: Scattered Colors Author: Jessica Prince Genre: New AdultThe use of the phrase life is hard has become so diluted, so overstated through the years that when someone hears it the words go in one ear and out the other. The impact is no longer there. The meaning, the importance of that phrase no longer holds any water with those it's spoken to. Freya Linden's life became hard at the age of seventeen, the summer before her senior year of high school. The bright colors of her life faded into black and white, a colorless shell full of loneliness. Until she met him. Parker Owens breathed life back into her world. With him she began to heal. But happiness isn't a guarantee. Sometimes opening yourself up only leads to more heartbreak. The person she thought to be her saving grace shattered her completely. Her story isn't a pretty one. The bumps in the road were monumental and infinite. But it's her story. And the one thing that holds true is this: despite the hardships, she made it through to the other side.

Nikki's 5 Star Review
This is the first time i have read anything by Jessica Prince and I loved it. Scattered Colors is well written and the characters draw you in straight away.
Freya Linden had a great life she was doing well in school, had great friends and a loving family. One afternoon that happy family life is ripped away when her mother is killed, in the next few months her father finds it hard to cope without his wife and throws himself into work even finding it difficult to help his daughter at his tragic time as she reminds him of everything he has lost. Suddenly matters are made worse when her father decides to sell her family home and move to a small town for a fresh start.
Parker Owen is the popular guy in Freya's new school he has lots of friends and the girls are falling all over themselves for a chance with him but is home life is the complete opposite with a very depressed mom that he feels he has to care for and a violent father. A Chance meeting on a beach begins a change in both Freya and Parker's life are they just what each other need?
The path to true love is never easy and they both have lots thrown at them is the relationship they are both working hard for strong enough to survive?
This book gets a massive 5 stars from me and i will definitely be checking out other titles from Jessica.
Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That's why God created central air, after all. Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy--she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says. In addition to being a wife and mom, she's also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books--romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it's a passion...there's a difference. Not that she'd expect a boy to understand. Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
