Review: Kill Devil Hills by Sarah Darlington

Publication Date: August 2, 2014 
Series: Kill Devil Hills Book 1 
Rating: 5 Stars 

Official Blurb: He’s twenty-four. She’s eighteen.

His life is exactly the way he’s always wanted it to be...stable.
She’s quite possibly the very definition of unstable.

Noah saved her.
Georgina never wanted to be saved.

Growing up, Noah Clark was passed from one relative to the next until he finally ended up living with his abusive, alcoholic uncle in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Thanks in part to the unwavering love and support of his best friend, Ellie Turner, Noah survived those years, escaped his uncle, and grew into the man he is today. Now he runs his own business and lives a pretty normal, no-nonsense life—one where he maintains a high level of control.

Georgina is Ellie’s younger sister. Four months ago, Noah saved Georgie’s life, but he thought that was where his involvement with his friend’s sister would end. Now Georgie has returned home from the recovery facility her parents sent her away to and Noah, still haunted by the night that connects them, can’t stop himself from continuously trying to protect this girl he barely knows. But is he willing to give up all of the control he’s worked so hard to build in his life and risk everything for her? Even more importantly, would she do the same for him? 

This was my first book by Sarah and I was pulled in from the very first chapter. When the story starts Noah walks into a situation he or no one else really was ready for. Georgina is not handling things like she thought she could and decides she doesn’t want to live anymore. Things change so much for Noah and Georgina that night. Love how this books is told through both characters POVs so we know what both characters are going through. 

Georgina is recovering from her suicide attempt and she is doing very well but she can’t seem to get Noah off her mind. He is everywhere because he is her sister’s best friend and practically lives at her house. Georgina thinks it’s one sided when in reality Noah is just as fascinated by her as she is him. Noah is a misunderstand person. On the outside he is shy, quiet, and very controlled. But on the inside Noah is actually a loving and caring person he is just fighting his demons from his past.

There were times Noah made me so mad while reading I wanted to jump through my kindle and smack him. Georgina also had her moments but not as much as Noah. One thing I loved about this book is the strength of the secondary characters. Not only do we get Noah but we also get the family, close friends and of course Ellie. I honestly loved this book and can’t wait to start Ellie’s story right away. I need to know what happens with everyone else and hope to see more of Noah and Georgina!!
