    I imagine Where Life Takes You falls into the category of chick lit, and it’s for that reason I chose to read it; I felt like reading a different genre to what I normally read – well, that and having followed Claudia Burgoa’s progress, somewhat, on twitter. I honestly didn’t know what to expect, other than, perhaps, that whatever the stresses and strains of life the heroine may undergo, the stains would come out white in the wash and we’d all live happily ever after…That certainly wa [...]

    Have you ever read a book and got so angry at the ending? I'm not talking about one of those mediocre books that end so confusing and things don't make since. But a good type of anger that demonstrates how well you've come to know the characters. Where Life Takes You pulled at my emotions. There were good times and bad times but I learned to care for Becca and Dan. Then the ending just made it so much more important to get the next book ASAP!

    by Claudia Y. BurgoaReview also on between-the-pages.weebly/1 E-book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review This book totally surprised the heck out of me. After reading the blurb, I knew it would pack some heavy drama, I just didn’t expect THAT MUCH. I’m sort of in between really liking it and loving it so I’m giving it 4.5 out of 5 PINK stars! There are some parts that made my heart clench and then again, some parts made me want to stop reading all together. I’m glad I [...]

    5 out of 5 Stars for this wonderful story*** ARC provided in exchange for an honest review ***Rebecca Trent has been dealt a shit hand of cards as a life: her mother never wanted her and spent her life blaming Becca and bringing her down, whereas she never met her father. As a teenager, she met Ian, the boy next door who helped take away her pain and eventually became her boyfriend. That is until Becca's mother decided to re-marry, bringing stepsister Lisa into the picture, who made Becca's life [...]

    OMG! I can not believe how much I enjoy reading this book. It was such an amazing story and I love it.Like the most books, that I’ve read this year, I didn't read the description of this book. I’ve loved so much the cover so I let myself guided by this. And my instinct didn’t let me down. It was the perfect book to read for this end of the year. I couldn’t finish my year better with this book.Becca is a woman, that her entire live, has suffered. First when she find that her mother didn [...]

    Almost like a dark, contemporary Cinderella story, Where Life Takes You by debut author Claudia Y. Burgoa, tells the story of a young woman full of hideous secrets from her past who know longer believes she is worthy of love and often wonders why she is allowed to breathe the air of “good” people. Becca comes to us the product of an abusive childhood, damaged and broken inside, barely functioning emotionally. Dan, her best friend, is her knight in shining armor, her rock, strong, handsome, p [...]

    I received a copy of Where Life Takes You in return for an honest review. My reviews are my own and are 100% honest.I have to start with a MASSIVE thanks to Claudia for allowing me participate in her review tour and receive a copy of this book because this is only the second book out of the 64 I’ve read so far this year that was absolutely, mind-bendingly, emotionally driven and it blew me away. This was a stunning read as far as I'm concerned.This was an astonishing heart rendering piece of w [...]

    Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.Becca has spent a lifetime as the victim of her mother’s cruel emotional abuse, the scapegoat of her stepsister’s untimely death. Becca’s mother blames her, Becca blames herself, and the community is suspicious of her for the incident that took the life of her stepsister and best friend, Ian. Only Becca knows the truth though, she was the only one in the room that escaped to tell the whole story.Dan is Rebecca’s b [...]

    I liked this book. It had a good premise, and I found it difficult to put down. Rebecca had a terrible childhood with some very traumatic happenings. I'll admit I've been a little desensitized by characters and their sad childhoods due to repetition, but I can honestly say that I have never read a romance with a past so horrendous. At times it bordered on unbelievable. My heart went out to Rebecca.Rebecca's only saving grace in life had been her best friend, Dan. Rebecca was a pretty weak charac [...]


    Heather

    Thank you Jesus the blurb said this is a two book novel. That is the best news I have heard all week.You don’t even know.That’s how into it I was.This book was absolutely amazing!Becca has been through hell and back. She has a mother who never wanted her, a step-sister who hates her, a best friend who left her, a step-father who blames her…. I can’t even begin to go into what she went through because it isn’t in the blurb and I don’t want to spoil it, but it is so much more than the [...]

    Growing up , life was not easy for Becca Trent - in fact it was awful and downright cruel. It ended up getting worse when Becca's mother met a man she loved who had two children already of his own. One included a girl named Lisa who was a year older than Becca. Becca had always wanted a sister , but in fact what she got was the start of someone who would do absolutely everything and anything in her power to ruin Becca's life and take her place as Becca's mother's daughter. The perfect daughter w [...]

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.This is an incredibly well-written book that tackles some pretty dark subject matter. While I'm definitely partial to a lighter read, Claudia's writing hooked me from the start, and I raced through the book like a mystery novel, unable to rest until I uncovered everyone's secrets. Overall I'd give the book a solid 3.5. I think ultimately I wanted more from the main characters. Dan seemed like kind of a nut by the end [...]


    Machel

    Where Life Takes You by Claudia Burgoa is a multi-layered love story between Becca & Dan. At first glance you think that Dan (a wealthy childhood friend that has always loved Rebecca more than in a sisterly way) is the catch with Becca's panic attacks, therapy & mean letters to her dead step sister Lisa. But what the reader soon finds out as the novel and the relationship with Dan becomes hit and miss, is Rebecca has survived a devestating teenage tragedy that has robbed her soul of allo [...]


    Gloria Herrera for As You Wish Reviews

    Absolutely fascinating story! I just finished reading this and I wanted more. I need to know if these two characters will be able to deal with their demons and learn to show their affection for each other.Dan is so controlling. His life has been so out of control in the past that once he was on his way to success all he wanted was to be able to control his surroundings. He cannot fall prey to the chaos he has experienced growing up.Becca is just the same. She never had any control over her life. [...]


    Pam

    Wow!! I have read books where there was a damaged leading character but I don't think I have ever read a character with as many demons as Becca. But Becca is not as weak as you may think. She has had a terrible childhood. Starting with a mother who did not want to even have her in her sight to a step-family who made her feel like the most unlovable person in the world. But in all this darkness she has Daniel. Sweet sexy amazing Daniel. He is her best friend. He is her rock. He is her person. Bec [...]

    Wow what a story!! I read this in one sitting. Literally ignored everything around me to read this brilliant story. My heart went out to Rebecca. She has gone through so much yet still feels she doesn't deserve happiness. Dan I just loved. One thing he did in story I wanted to shout at him. Otherwise he was the perfect alpha billionaire. The synopsis of this book gives you a teaser of what's in store for you. There is so much more that you won't wanna stop until it's over. Yes it ends in a cliff [...]

    I really loved this book and the characters. I could have done without one scene, but I also understand its necessity and it was more a memory then actually taking place which somehow did make a difference. - See more at: druesrandomchatter

    **JOSIE'S REVIEW**This book was amazing! After I read the synopsis, I said wow this book looks like it’s going to be an emotional and angst packed read. The author delivered just that and I was captivated from the first page. I will warn you that you will cry, scream and feel all the injustice that Rebecca went through from the people who were supposed to love her (get some Kleenex).This review is hard to write because it has very intense subject matters and I really do not want to spoil it fo [...]

    Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickWhere Life Takes You is the first book in Claudia Y. Burgoa's Life series, and is the first book that I have ever read by her. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect with this story, but I really ended up liking it. This book was such a journey, and I feel like we have just scratched the surface. I can't wait to see what happens next for these characters and to continue where this book leaves off. This one was definitely an emotional roller coas [...]

    between a 3.5/5 to a 3.6/5[Sometimes the characters really dragged on me, but I would recommend to contemporary lovers with a strong heart.I do plan to read the second book. I can't wait to see Becca's progression.]I am not entirely sure how to start this review. My emotions are all over the place regarding this book. On one hand, I greatly respect the amount of thought that went into the characters. There were deep emotional traumas and side- effects that were addressed as well as very real rea [...]

    Review first appeared on my blog: Book Addict 24-7I received a copy via the author in exchange for an honest reviewWhere Life Takes You by Claudia Y. Burgoa is an adult contemporary novel that I was actually kind of excited to read. With a high rating, excellent reviews, and a promising premise, I expected great things from this one. But one of the big no-no's I've learned as a reviewer is to not put too many expectations behind a book. Though I received this book for reviewing purposes (thank y [...]

    NOTE: I received a copy from the author via Xpresso Book Tours. This is my honest review.WARNING:I need to say this up front, so whoever's reading the review now, could decide if they want to keep on reading. This book contains mature scenes, and scenes of sexual abuse. Be warned that I wouldn't recommend it for readers younger than 18, or such with soft hearts. If you identify yourself with one of those categories of readers, please move onto something else. Otherwise, continue - you will proba [...]

    Full review here: laurainbookland/2I need the second book in my life. Right now. That should tell you how much I enjoyed this book. I don’t really pick up “new adult” books because I feel they are mostly just romance novels but the synopsis of this book really called to me so I went ahead and requested it. I am so glad that I did. I have not wanted to not put a book down in a while. I did not want to put this book down.The main characters name is Rebecca Trent. She has major relationship p [...]

    What an emotional roller coaster! Such an incredible story and so much to take in that I'm erring between 4 and 5 stars so my rating may change. Full review to follow soon.Edit: full reviewIt’s taken me a while to put together my thoughts about this really incredible story. It’s a real emotional rollercoaster which I know many readers will not be able to stop thinking about long after they turn the last page. I love these psychological reads, and am awestruck by how well Claudia Burgoa deliv [...]

GIMME THE SECOND BOOK NOW!! (please)Full Review:Where Life Takes You is a beautiful and moving story that follows Becca Trent.

    You see, I’m setting you free because I love you. Who knows where life will take you. There’s the sad possibility that when I come back, you’ll be happy with someone else. But I’ll be happy if you are. You deserve better than me. A messed up woman who can’t fend for herself. I need to break the codependency and find myself.Where Life Takes You is a heartbreaking read about a woman that’s lost too much. Although, sometimes, it feels like Rebecca Trent had nothing to start with. She wa [...]
