Review & Giveaway: Those Four Letter Words by Christina Channelle

Those Four Letter Words

Christina Channelle

Self Published

July 3, 2013

62 pgs

Eighteen-year-old Jade Reamer is a tough girl with a reputation to prove it. She loves three people and three people only: her brother, her boyfriend, and her best friend. Everyone else is irrelevant.

That is … until Reed enters the picture again.

Suddenly things start to spiral out of control and things aren’t as they seem. Life is no longer simply black and white, love versus hate. Suddenly, it’s hard to figure out which of those four letter words is true.

Especially when she can’t look away from those devil eyes.

I love you. I hate you. I love you. I hate you. Which is it? I don’t even know anymore.

Well, let’s find out.

This 15,000 word novella contains coarse language, angst-driven young adults, and a lot of pent-up frustration.

Oh yeah. Plus love and a little bit of hate.

(Mature YA/ New Adult Contemporary)

A little about Christina

A dreamer, Christina Channelle holds two degrees in health sciences but has always had a passion for writing. You will find her reading other young adult novels, or typing up a new story on her computer. When not writing, Christina spends her free time at the movies, listening to music, or eating sushi. She’s a reality TV junkie and has a close relationship to many characters on TV that have been a topic of many heated discussions among friends. She resides in Ontario, Canada.

I was apprehensive about reading Those Four Letter Words by Christina Channelle because it was a novella, and most times with novellas I am left with wanting more.  A lot more.  But somehow with Those Four letter Words, Christina has compacted a story with plot twists and tension satisfied within 58 pages; so I was more than happy as I reached the very last page.  I would have loved to have a longer story with Reed and Jade as a couple, we as readers can always hope.

I was slightly annoyed that there were so many subplots to this novella, there was even one within the last ten pages of the story.

I said TEN.

Which was never fully resolved.  I’m hoping we get something more out of Jade, Reed, and family in the next book.  Crossing my fingers.
