Book Review- #Blur (GearShark Issue #4) by Cambria Hebert


Nothing but a #blur…

There’s a new kid in town, and he’s hell on wheels.
From what we’ve heard, it may be because 
he knows exactly what hell’s like.
You may know his brother, the NRR hotshot 
(and former GearShark cover model) 
It’s only natural a driver with his background and family connections 
has sped his racecar into the newest, hottest division.
But that’s not all.
Arrow may be following in big bro’s tread marks, 
but he doesn’t plan to stay there.
He’s swerving onto the road less traveled… 
and a lot more controversial.
He’s opening up about his private struggles with sexuality 
to tell a story that’s gone unheard until now.
One thing’s for sure; Arrow may have a painful past, 
but his foot is heavy on the accelerator. 
With speed like this, he’s bound to leave everything behind in
nothing but a #blur.

I am left breathless, teary eyed & so in love with Arrow & Hopper! 

Arrow is faced with a big life decision, he is offered a chance to race in the NRR with his brother, or head to the pros, and sign with NASCAR and step out of the shadow of his big brother, and be on his own. Either choice changes things, either choice brings him out of his comfort zone, out of the safety of the airplane hanger he has called home the last few years. Scars and pain run deep, his past still haunts him, and Arrow worries that he will never be able to heal and escape the memories that still creep in. Hiding and never getting close, never trusting, has left him shy, and lonely. Despite being surrounded by Jase, Joey, Drew and Trent, he's alone. When the sexy curly haired, Hopper, walks into his life, Arrow discovers feelings and thoughts and wants he never thought he would have. He feels a connection to this man that he's only watched from afar. But now that he's in front of him, where he can really see him, he recognizes a man broken and lost just as much as himself. Arrow will have to decided if he is brave enough to show Hopper the real him and take a chance to trust this man with his heart.

Hopper is a shell of a man. One who on the outside may have picked himself up, after suffering a tragic loss, but inside is broken, shattered and guilt ridden. For five long years he has kept to himself, letting only Joey see parts of the man he once was, but otherwise living a lonely life. With the responsibility of getting Arrow to sign a contract with Ron Gamble, Hopper finds himself thrown for a loop when he finally comes face to face with the young, shy and extremely attractive future star driver. He sees something in Arrow, that he himself knows all to well. Loss and pain. Arrow has surrounded himself with walls, not just his home, but himself too. To get through them, Hopper will have to treed lightly and prove to Arrow that there is good and kindness and love out there. But it's not easy for Hopper to move on, to experience love and happiness, without thinking of what once was and that he is betraying a promise he made himself long ago.

Arrow really surprised me in this story. I knew I was going to love him, but he was so much more.  He is a fantastic, heartbreaking, strong, character. All he endured, all the pain, the betrayal, but to see all his strength, and the way he reached for what he wanted, how he came out of his shell and stood on his own and faced his fear, his past, and fought for more. For happiness and love and to live his life. It was hard to read at times, made me cry, but made me smile and really love this shy, passionate, loving, beautiful character. 

Hopper, man was Hopper just as amazing to read about. Broken, lost, and wandering alone. He also really surprised me. Vulnerable, sweet, and caring. Yet powerful and protective. I could not get enough of him. I loved this character and his big heart, and his ability to stay and fight when at times all he wanted was to run. 

The way Cambria captivates her readers with her story telling. Her beautiful words, the emotional dialogue, the happiness, the pain, the love and family, show what a truly talented writer she is. I've been following Cambria Hebert a long while now, and she is a author who's work I will truly read without a second thought. Because I know that I will be left with wonderful words to pour over and amazing characters to love.

#Blur is a steal your breath, heart aching, make you weak in the knees, raw, love story, with so much heart and soul.
