The Key to Everything by Paula Stokes {review}

Hi everyone! I can't believe this is my first post of 2018 (YAY, finally!), and it feels kind of weird to say this but, it is also my first post after the hurricane. Things have been... I don't even have a word for it. But anyway, I'm saying all of this because today, I'm reviewing one of the books I read during/after the hurricane.
Book title: The Key to Everything
Author: Paula Stokes
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Publication date: January 2nd, 2018
Publisher: Self-published
Pages: 328
How I got the book: Sent for ReviewI received an eARC copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Ok, I think you all know I'm a big fan of Paula Stokes and of course, I was super excited when I heard her first New Adult book was coming up! But I won't lie, I was a little scared... Why? Because I love Paula's writing style on her YA books so I didn't know what to expect. But now that I've read it, I can honestly tell you, The Key to Everything was literally everything and more.

I LOVE the relationship between Oakland and Morgan! They were like this kind of friends who can tell each other everything. By the way, Morgan even made me think of one of my classmates, who happens to be obsessed with soldiers. I also liked the relationship between Tyson and Jed. All the characters were relatable. At first, I wasn't really connected with the whole situation of finding Seth, Oakland's high school boyfriend AKA "The One". But then it kinda made sense, you know? Maybe I couldn't relate to the situation, but I could see why she felt the need to reach out to him. But honestly, at one point I felt like she could have let go of the situation and just enjoy her time in Thailand (with Morgan... and Tyson, of course!). Anyway, I felt like I traveled to Thailand with Oakland, because of all the descriptions and details. So I enjoyed every place she visited! And it took my mind off almost everything related to the hurricane. Even if it was for only a couple of days.

Remember when I mentioned that I was kind of scared of Paula's writing style in NA? Well, I felt it was following her YA books, except for the sex scenes, duh! So yeah, I really liked it! I felt it was the right amount of spiciness... Lol, at least for me. I mean, I'm not an expert on NA books because I haven't read that many, but this one didn't made me feel uncomfortable. If that makes sense... By the way, I remember when I read the first sex scene I was like "WHATTTT, girrrlll, what?!?!" Lol. And I didn't had electricity!!! So I had to take a ride with my husband on his car, so I could charge the iPad and be able to keep reading. I will never forget that day!

Oh, can I just say that I loved every time I read something related to Puerto Rico?! And even my favorite bookstore, The Bookmark, was mentioned! (at least on the ARC version). And on a side note, I just want you to know that I finally found my book boyfriend! TYSON!

Have you read it yet? What are your thoughts? If you haven't read it yet, you can add it to your TBR.
