Brave Reviews

  • Liza Wiemer

    A must-read NA novel that can be read as a standalone or part of the fabulous CONTOURS OF THE HEART series. This novel tackles some tough issues. It's eye-opening and will break your heart as well as make you swoon. Smart, sexy, and beautifully written. Expect the unexpected! This novel has depth, compassion, and a window into this world reminding us that hatred is poison and love can transform. BRAVE reminds us all to stand up for what's right. Brava, Tammara!!!

    Highly, highly recommend!

    FRTC!

    Tammara Webber once again proves to be a masterful storyteller and the Queen of character development. It's been a long while since I've been unable to put a book down until it was finished. The characters are likeable, the story is engaging, the issues aren't shied away from. All that and the chemistry is between Erin and Isaac is palpable. This is going to be re-read, and often.

    I'm thrilled that we finally received Erin's story. She was a favorite of mine from previous books in this series, and I thoroughly enjoyed her journey is this book. While I understand her personal growth was the focus of the story, I did feel the romance was lacking, leaving me feeling a bit disappointed at the end.

    This was Very Good. This whole series is good, and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it.

    I was surprised at how late in the book the romance started, but that's sort of in line with this series, in that the main stuff is always about the protagonist anyway.

    Since it's set in 2014/2015 there are a fair few conversations about Ferguson and Tamir Rice which feel better a few years removed, but were still a little pointed, BUT I like that Webber tried, and mostly succeeded, to make a point about privil

    Okay let's see:

    - enemies to lovers

    -opposite

    -this cover

    -blurb

    -heroine from previous books

    all of that got me to swoon really hard, and be all like I want to read it, badly.

    This had everything to be extraordinary romance book.

    Great hero; smart, courageous, honorable, handsome.

    Likable heroine, yes she is privileged, but I liked her. She also was very smart and I did not find her annoying. At all.

    I liked the plot line and slow burn of this story. Some may find that lacking but not me.

    But the end

    But the ending was really rushed. That ruined excellence of this book for me. I think over the night turnover in the story really ruined it for me. I do not mind that it was predictable. There is a huge gap that is missing for this story to be five star read.

    Also I should point out this is a really new adult kind of book, chemistry is there but the lead characters do not kiss until waaaaay late into the book and all the rest happens at the end, but never mind that I DO NOT, but I really felt more of a potential for this book, and sadly all I feel is lacking.....

    Where are all the pages,huh?!

    Overall this is for all of you who love NA, slow burn , opposite attract, no cheating, om/ow with very likable characters.

    It has been a long, long time since I’ve read a Tammara Webber book and coming back to one is a reminder of ‘Contours of the Heart’ as one of the first few books that actually made me aware of the then-emerging New Adult (sub)genre that had suddenly scored big hits with so many people.

    It has been a long, long time since I’ve read a Tammara Webber book and coming back to one is a reminder of ‘Contours of the Heart’ as one of the first few books that actually made me aware of the then-emerging New Adult (sub)genre that had suddenly scored big hits with so many people.

    As the rocky relationship between Isaac Maat and Erin McIntyre emerges in the first few chapters however, what I’d evidently also forgotten is Webber’s seductively poetic and perceptive writing of this pairing—particularly so for a NA story—just as her portrayal of her characters are realistic, quite multifaceted and believable, with the undertones of racial bias that sets up the conflict of the story years before Isaac and Erin are even on the scene.

    These alone makes ‘Brave’ easy to go through, as Webber unravels the heroine, strips her bare, then puts her in front of the reader like a bold testament to the flawed (and young) heroine…complete with broken dreams, scorching fantasies, colossal fuck-ups and everything else in between. With only Erin’s POV available to us though, it is more difficult to figure out who Isaac really is, and my own inference in this case, coming through the filter of Erin’s own perceptions, doesn’t peel back that much. Consequently, Isaac remains relatively shrouded in mystery (and very alluringly sexy) but as unreadable and unattainable as Erin makes him out to be.

    I did find myself somewhat bored for the first half—the slow burn also translates into slow pacing—as Erin and Isaac take a while to warm up to each other, then flatten out until the climax near the end and a hurried resolution that’s unsatisfactory because of its swiftness and abruptness. The romance at some points, seems to flicker out, only to return when Erin/Isaac sort out the fallout from the big reveal and this, coupled with the rushed (and only) sex scene at the end, just left me needing a lot more than a HFN conclusion.

    I'm trying not to be disappointed, but I am. I know I shouldn't compare books but

    is still a favorite book of mine. I'm talking multiple re-reads so that makes it shiny and important to me. This story lacked all the shine and sparkle. I'll even shorten that last word and tell you that the spark between the two characters wasn't all that spectacular either. I wasn't invested. The butterflies in my stomach didn't come out to play. So I'm giving it three stars for the things that I did like-

So I'm giving it three stars for the things that I did like--that being I still love Erin as a character. She's pretty sassy! Overall, I am going to live somewhere between sort of liking this and probably forgetting about it all together in the end.

    There's no other way to put it.

    At the beginning the slowness didn't bother me because it was a (well written) slow burn "romance". In fact, I was pretty excited and I was loving it. But then at 50% still

    was burning and I've begun to lose interest.

    There was no sexual tension.

    No build-up. I feel like saying "I felt nothing!". Every emotion I had was

    related to them as a couple.

    This is not an enemies-to-lovers and/or an office romance book. I could even say

    This is not an enemies-to-lovers and/or an office romance book. I could even say

    (it's

    bad). I never felt their

    relationship was forbidden (which was the point of this book, #epicfail).

    Did I read a different book? Where was this?!

    THERE WAS NO CONFLICT.

    THERE WAS NO ANGST.

    The "big" revelation moment was just so fucking MEH.

    And on top of that, they get together (and finally have sex for the first time) only in the

    chapter and are a couple only in the fucking epilogue.

    I had some problems with Erin too (so annoying).

    I don't exactly like Tammara Webber's heroines, but I freaking love her heroes. Isaac was perfect. I think this book would have worked much better from/with his POV. Without his voice it felt incomplete to me.

    Sigh. My fault. I was expecting something else completely.

    So disappointed, I wanna cry.

    After the latest books in this series and

    after the

    series (don't read that shit), I'm starting to think

    was just a fluke.

    I'm the author of this New Adult novel, a spinoff,

    Contours of the Heart novel - Erin's story. :)
