Catch Me by Claire Contreras


In the past, I've always been given everything I've wanted, but nothing that I truly needed. I've experienced a lot of things in my twenty-five years, everything except the one thing I want. It's the one thing that can’t be bought. It can't even be taken, it has to be given. And nobody has ever given it to me, not really anyway.

Not until him.

Music is the center of both our lives, but as he found his place in it, I lost my way. He soared, while I spiraled down a destructive path.
I lost myself in more ways than I can count.

The ironic thing is that I didn’t realize how lost I was until he found me.

And now that he has, I have to wonder if he'll stay around long enough to catch me.

"I don't know what it is about him that makes me want to grab his face in place so that he'll never look at anything but me. I'm not sure what bothers me more: the realization or the fact I can't remember feeling this way about anyone before him."

Catch Me was beyond amazing. Absolutely awefreakingtasic. This book kept me on my toes. I was so involved in this book that the world around me ceased to exist. I probably would have missed my stop off the bus if it wasn't for people around me getting up and disturbing me. There is just something so compelling about Claire Contreras's writing that I drown in her writing and don't come up for air until I have finished to last letter. It's beautiful, heartwarming, heart wrenching and hilarious. She has everything I would want in a story plus there is music. I love music as much as I love reading. There is not a moment I'm not listening to music, following it in my mind, humming while cleaning (doing mundane things I don't wanna do). Not that I sing that bad. I think. LOL. 

I have been a huge fan of Ms. Contreras ever since I read There is No Light in Darkness and she gets better and better. I LOVE HER. She's fanfreakingtablous!!! 

Brooklyn is girl who has everything the world would think anyone would need, she's from a rich and famous family. Well known in the music industry but she misses something that wealth cannot give and she hasn't found it. 

Nick Wilde is a famous produces who's working with Shea's album. He's just amazing!!! I love him. And he has blue eyes but its type of blue that needs it own color. 

“The blue that makes you want to name a crayon because it’s so magnificent. The shade that makes you want to dive in. Of course I know there’s a great white shark waiting for me in that beautiful water if I dare to take the leap.”

Enticing you yet? LOL. You'll all fall in love with him. Head over heels! 

Their first kiss -sigh- is awefreakingtasic. Beyond all first kisses. 

"That’s how this kiss makes me feel. Like I’m freefalling, like I’m dying, like I’m breathing for the first time. Like I’m high on ecstasy and a million expert hands are massaging me. This kiss is my life."

Their relationship is so beautiful, its one hell of a ride with all its bumps but you live it. You see it all happen and you clutch to your heart for the fear of it falling out of your chest! You cry ugly tears too. Your eyes are swollen red. I cried so freaking much I probably need to send the bill of flooding that happened to Claire.  LMAO. But its so worth it. 

Then there is Hendrix, Brooklyn's brother, I have to talk about him because I love him. He's amazing. I won't say more but when you'll read it you'll love him just as much. 

There is Shea, the playboy, the musician, the best friend. If you love bad boy's he's your guy. Love him too but I love Nick more haha!!

You guys NEED to read Catch Me because you'll fall and maybe you'll be caught by a gorgeous guy or two (if you want all the guys to catch you) LOL.

Claire Contreras graduated with her BA in Psychology from Florida International University. She lives in Miami, Florida with her husband, two little boys, and three dogs.

Her favorite past times are: daydreaming, writing, and reading.

She has been described as a random, sarcastic, crazy girl with no filter.

Life is short, and it’s more bitter than sweet, so she tries to smile as often as her face allows. She enjoys stories with happy endings, because life is full of way too many unhappy ones or ones that will scare the daylights out of her and have her looking over her shoulder at every turn. Like I said, she's very random.
