Book Review ~ Amusement (Carnival #2) by K.B. Nelson

(Carnival #2)
by K.B. Nelson

Love isn’t easy. 

Charlie Scott is homesick and tired. She misses the town and the people she left behind. Living a life on the run hasn’t been easy for her, and she’s ready to face the consequences, even if it means leaving the love of her life, Blue, behind. 

Home is where the heart is. 

Eight months after returning home, Charlie’s life is finally in order. She has a job she loves and her relationship with her father has never been better. But underneath the image of her perfect life, trouble bubbles to the surface. 

You can’t escape your past. 

Torn between a normal life and the life she left behind, Charlie remains steadfast in her resolve to create a better tomorrow for herself and for her friends. But life has a way of throwing curveballs, and this next one hits her right in the face—Blue returns to Lakeview a changed man. 

Second chances are rare.. 

There are two things Charlie knows for certain; she loves Blue, and he’s not good for her. Charlie must come to terms with her past and her present. She must determine if she could possibly have a future with the man she threw her life away for. She has a second chance at love, but is it worth the risk when her future could hang in the balance? 

Don’t miss the exciting, heartfelt final chapter in the epic love story between two lost souls fumbling their way through life and love. Not suitable for those under the age of 18.

“The world will break your heart in every way it can.  And after your heart is torn into pieces, and the blood quits flowing, the world will laugh on in amusement.”

This review will be short and sweet, because quite frankly, the reader will need to experience every single word that this story has to offer and I don’t want to take away from this truly awe-inspiring love story.

In the long awaited conclusion of the Carnival Series, readers are in for an exciting, nail-biting ride of EPIC proportions.  Once again K. B. Nelson has left me utterly speechless and in complete awe.   The writing is simply beautiful and the story absolutely amazing.  Amusement is so powerful, so intense and so raw it will leave you breathless as you wonder how this story will end.   This captivating story is a quick read, but one that you will want to take your time with because you will not want it to end. 

Charlie and Blue’s story is one that will remain in my heart for quite some time and I will forever treasure the time that I spent with them on this crazy ‘Carnival’ ride.  Thank you K.B. for giving us, the readers and fans of this series, a truly wonderful and at times, heart-wrenching reading experience! 

If you haven’t had a chance to witness first-hand the amazing writing ability of the talented K.B. Nelson, then I highly recommend this series – you will not be disappointed.

5 stars

I grew up on a farm in Ohio, but that's not very interesting, is it? When I'm not writing you can find me doing one of two things; getting lost on highways or getting lost in the lives of fictional characters. If my heart had two feet, one foot would be in romance and the other solidly in geekdom. I hope you'll all follow me on my journey through this carnival they call life.I promise there will be a happy ending.
