Michelle Sutton's "It's Not About Me" Review

"It's Not About Me" by Michelle Sutton

I'm a big fan of Michelle Sutton's "Danger at the Door" and decided to give "It's Not About Me" a try. I'm glad I did. This has been marketed as a young adult book, but it's an excellent read for adults as her characters are heading into college. Trust me, you won't even recognize that you're reading a young adult book.

Michelle does such an excellent job of showing the tension between couples that you feel like you're there with them, rooting for the best man to win (that's all I'll say as I don't want to give away her plot). There are some surprising twists in this book that will keep you reading as you wonder what's going to happen next. I stayed up past my bed time last night because I just HAD to finish it.

True to her reputation, Michelle tackles some real life topics in this book that other authors may shy away from, making the book even more believable. Michelle also has a knack for writing romance scenes. My step-daughter says that Michelle's romance scenes leave her breathless. I agree.

Annie has it all. She's attractive, graduated with honors, was accepted at the college of her choice, has supportive parents, good friends, and a steady boyfriend who loves her. One night when an unexpected visitor appears, Annie's safe world is destroyed. As she tries to recover the pieces of her broken life, a war ensues between two brothers who both claim to have her best interests at heart. But who will Annie choose? Or will she decide to turn her life in a different direction?


  1. Nice review. This novel was bumped up on my TBR list this weekend. I'll finish it and post my review before the end of January.

  2. The synopsis of this book, as well as your little tidbit of information really peaks my interest & makes me want to read the book to find out what happens. You've done it again, bought to my attention another author to add to my list of writers to read & I thank you for it.

  3. Aw thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I hope your step-daughter enjoys this one like she did Danger. :)

  4. Love learning about new authors. Please enter me in the drawing.
