Triangles Book Review

A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?

In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.

Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.

She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?

Triangles is YA-NC paranormal romance.  I was very excited to read this book because it was about the Bermuda Triangle. Autumn is damaged to say the least. Her mom is in a coma, her dad died a few years ago and she’s being raised by her 21 year old sister.  She feels like her dad’s death and mom’s current condition are her fault.  With all she has going on, she’s pretty moody.  Her bad attitude bothered some reviewers, but not me.  Obviously she wouldn’t be a sweet, happy-go-lucky teen and it made the storyline more believable. 

As the blurb states, she starts waking up every day in a new reality.  I could not put the book down once that started, and couldn't wait to see what the next day would bring.  It was so interesting and fast paced.  It was a unique and exciting way to learn about each character. Since Autumn is the only person aware that every day is different it gives her a much needed chance to do some self-reflection. 

Make no mistake, romance is a large part of the book. In fact, Triangles, is a very clever name for the book because there’s a love triangle is a major part of the story line.

This was a quick read (under 200 pages) and the writing was fantastic.  Miller does an amazing job of keeping you engaged and waiting to see what comes next.  I give this book 5 out of 5 donuts.
