Riley's life

By Audrey All Rights Reserved ©

Romance / Mystery


This is the story of a girl who will see her life change. She will try to fight throughout the novel to survive. She will be charged with murder because all the details conducting to her but yet there is something that not rings true...

Chapter 1 : The beginning

Once upon a time, a young girl who was unhappy, she detested her life, but she never showed it. She wanted to appear stronger in front of everyone. Indeed, she always managed to be calm, to laugh even though her life was far from easy to live. So can you imagine living as a young girl with parents who are better things to do than to take care of you ? Can you live this life only one day ? I would answer you, no, you can’t ; but this life can be someone’s reality. I’ll tell you a story, and this story is mine. My name is Riley Neals, I’m 20 years old. I just finished my studies, which means that either I continue in the right, or I enter to the working life. I would like to become a lawyer like my aunt, she worked hard to be a success, but I know I’m capable. At the high school, I tried to make what I loved to do, but a professor wouldn’t, so I started to lock myself into the art of the writing to let express my emotions. Through these emotions, I could be guided to start writing and thus relieve my pain of not doing what I wanted to do. Moreover, writing allowed me to escape in another world full of hope. Indeed, my life wasn’t very nice, my parents didn’t take care of me, when I had reached the age of 16 and I could take care of myself, I had to learn to feed myself. At first, I found this odd, I don’t understand why I had to take care of myself. And in the course of the months, I didn’t take time to ask them, since my parents didn’t speak to me, and I didn’t know why. The only time when they talked to me, they repeated me that I should leave soon. And once again without knowing why. But to avoid to face myself to them, I preferred to stay in my room and write, which I had become a habit. Yet, in a few months, everything was topple over for me and I was finally going to know the truth about them, and the truth about what they hid me since forever.

Jade Jez: What a wonderful, immersive book from Eliott McKay. It starts with an air of mystery, introducing main character Michaela, the clumsy teenager. From there, it whisks you off your feet and dumps you into a beautifully written world where you can almost smell and hear everything happening. I go...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

rajastreet: I enjoyed this piece! I loved the treatment of time and the premise! Some of the wording seemed a little out of place, but easily overlooked for a good a plot.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

Ashley Stryker: So I'm writing this review, keeping in mind that this is a work in progress and it's part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so my "deeper" critiques will be saved until it's all finished up.+ Chapter One: A stewardess would not talk to anyone quite like that, particularly a clear minor...

Jordan Young: *ALERT FOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS* Where to start? I don't know how to sum up this review, this story was absolutely sensational. Brilliant. Flawless.

Ro-Ange Olson: Loved it and couldn't put it down. I really hope there is a sequel. Well written and the plot really moves forward.

Toria Danielle: I must congratulate Erin Swan on completing such a beautiful work. The Rising Sun is well rounded and leaves nothing to be wanted. ALL of the characters and their development are beautifully written. The plot is extremely well thought out. Creating a whole different type of universe is difficult ...
