Book Review: Nowhere But Here by Renee Carlino


This is my first book by Renee Carlino. Crazy, I know, right? It’s been on my TBR for a long time and I have her other books on that list too that I will definitely be reading because I loved Nowhere but Here. It’s a fast-paced, sweet, emotional love story with a little bit of mystery that will take you on a roller coaster. This is one book that you will not be able to put down.

Kate Corbin has lost her spark. She lost her mom at the age of eight and just nine months ago,  Rose, her mother’s best friend who had taken her in, died. Working at the Chicago Crier, a newspaper and blog, her boss gave her an assignment that he hoped would bring life back into Kate. Kate’s assignment was to interview R.J. Lawson who had disappeared from life in the public eye.

Kate accepted the job. She needed the change in scenery and something that would inspire her once again. She was in a dead-end relationship that left her feeling lonely. Her motto became I’m all I’ve got.

From the moment I met Jamie I fell in love. He’s sweet, smart, caring, sensitive, and felt like a burden for being a diabetic if people wanted to take care of him or help him. He’s perfect. Jamie has definitely made it as one of my book boyfriends.  By chapter five, I shed my first tear for Jamie and as I read each passing chapter, I fell for him more and more.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers and there’s so much more I could say, but I don’t want to ruin this book for anyone who hasn’t read it yet. If you love romance then you’ll love this book. I cannot wait to read more of Renee Carlino’s books. The only negative thing I have to say is that the epilogue was too short, but it was a good ending from Jamie’s point of view.

What started out as a journey for one girl who kept herself hidden in the darkness became the story of two souls connected and growing together in the light.
