I knew going into Bright Side that it's supposed to be a tear-jerker, so I thought I was ready. I wasn't ready. I'd also heard that it is a slow start to get into, and I have to agree. But then I got to the point where I couldn't stop thinking about the story and the characters. I caught myself wondering how everything would fit together; how the details were going to work their way together into the tear-jerker I knew it was going to be. And damn you, Kim Holden, when they did, I cried my eyeballs dry. Heck yeah, this is a must-read! [December 2014]

Publisher's Synopsis

Everyone has one.
Some are bigger than others.
And when secrets are revealed,
Some will heal you ...
And some will end you.

Kate Sedgwick’s life has been anything but typical. She’s endured hardship and tragedy, but throughout it all she remains happy and optimistic (there’s a reason her best friend Gus calls her Bright Side). Kate is strong-willed, funny, smart, and musically gifted. She’s also never believed in love. So when Kate leaves San Diego to attend college in the small town of Grant, Minnesota, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with Keller Banks.

They both feel it.
But they each have a reason to fight it.
They each have a secret.

And when secrets are revealed,
Some will heal you …
And some will end you.


Hi. My name is Angie, and I’m a social-media-and-smut-book-reading addict. Hi… Angie… I’ve been working hard on the magical internet since 2006 when I retired from teaching elementary school to stay at home with my two baby girls. Now, I am a smut peddler.

You can follow my nonsense on Twitter and Facebook. Simply, I’m just a girl, looking at the book world, asking it to love her.
