Review-Little Things by Madison Street

Everything in Duke Grayson’s life was all he could ever ask for: A loving family, loyal friends, a beautiful girlfriend, and a scholarship to his top choice college. It’s his senior year of high school, and all he needs is to focus on his grades, lacrosse, and keeping his girlfriend happy. That is until Raya walks into his life. 

From the moment they meet, Duke is drawn to her, not only for her natural beauty and her stunning crystal blue eyes, but because he’s aware there’s more to this girl than just his alluring pull to her. He senses secrecy and fear. 

Throughout the year, their bond grows stronger, and his feelings for her become undeniable. Just when he is about to express his love, tragedy strikes and Raya disappears. 

For six years, Duke is tortured by his struggles, as he’s unable to find her and blames himself for failing to protect her. Until the day, she’s found, and he’s given a second chance. Will Duke become her beacon of hope and make her see that it’s the little things that make life worthwhile? Can Raya overcome her fears and fight against the terrors that haunt her? Or will her dark and torturous past be too much for her to battle against?

Madison Street was born in New York City and was raised in the Bronx, where she resided until she was 17 years old. After 9/11, Madison joined the United States Navy to serve her country. 

During the deployments, Madison constantly wrote short stories and she discovered her passion for writing. You will find Madison always on the computer, whether she's on Facebook, designing websites, messing with Photoshop, or writing for her blog.

Besides writing, her second passion is music and dance. Even though she's a terrible singer, she’ll still belt it out in the shower, especially if the song is her jam! She currently resides in Virginia with her husband of 8 years, 2 children, a dog, and a cat. She is so excited to start this amazing journey and is honored to be part of such a compassionate and loving community. 

Little Things by Madison Street is a gripping story that will rip out your heart strings. This book will show you that no matter what life throws at you, you can make it through it. You just have to make sure that you have a strong support system. Raya found that in Duke. He never gave up on her even when she disappeared. You will find your heart breaking for Raya as you read her story. There are definitely some men that should be shot in this book. I found myself wanting to give all of my friends a big hug after reading this story.
I give this book a 4 star rating with lots of confetti flying through the air. Madison Street will find her way into the heart of the reader and demand their full attention when reading her book. Why 4 stars and not 5? I felt the emotions were not pulled out of me like they should have been. I am hoping that on the next read through, I will be able to really get into it and let the emotions fly. Yes, I plan on giving this book another read, it is that good.
