Chasing Happy by Ann Lee Miller

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

After an epic fail in the hetero world, Ash Jackson heads cross country to Arizona to figure out his bisexuality and make peace with himself and God.
Nashville Star Samma Templeton’s music career bankrolls her future husband’s political campaigns. But she throws up before every concert and feels relegated to an item on the senator’s calendar.
When Ash moves into Samma’s apartment building their childhood friendship resurrects, and Samma must choose between promoting a political agenda that will benefit millions or following her heart. Ash must face his inner demons for the girl who was his past and feels like his future.


About this author

Ann Lee Miller earned a BA in creative writing from Ashland (OH) University and writes full-time in Phoenix, but left her heart in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, where she grew up. She loves speaking to young adults and guest lectures on writing at several Arizona colleges. When she isn’t writing or muddling through some crisis—real or imagined—you’ll find her hiking in the Superstition Mountains with her husband or meddling in her kids’ lives

 
 
 
 
My Thoughts:
 
Ann tackled a very big controversial issue in this book, and I give her props for doing so.
A young man struggling with his sexuality, believing he is gay because his father came out and left him and his mother.
The story was good, characters Ash and Samma are dimensional and believable. The biggest issue that I have with this book overall is that for more than half of the book all Ash is worried about is whether or not his body will respond to a female. I felt like I was reading soft porn and honestly was sick to my stomach and didn't want to pick it up again. I am glad that I did finish it, Ann did a good job pulling it all together.
While this is about a young adult, in my opinion this is not a book for young adults.
