Blog Tour Stop~ Review & Giveaway~ Being Kalli by Rebecca Berto ****

At nineteen, Kalli Perkins has never been in love and doesn't ever intend to be. She has her issues handled. She's managed to keep the secret of what happened to her nine years ago from her mother, although her mother's usually high anyway and barely notices Kalli or her little brothers.

One night at a party, Kalli makes a bet with her friend, Nate, that could change everything. But she didn't count on him. Nate's very capable of satisfying her, not only under her clothes, but in her heart, too.

She just doesn't know it yet.

*** Recommended for mature readers due to explicit content. This book is published in Australian English and includes relative diction. ***

This was one of the strongest and one of the most beautiful books I’ve read. I was instantly drawn into this book, it is definitely worth reading and you want wont to put it down. I loved the story line and how much of an impact it can make on the reader.

Kalli is such a wonderful girl. She has such a huge heart and is one of the strongest people I have ever had the pleasure of reading about. She has such a broken past that keeps her from being the wonderful girl that is deep within her. My heart broke over and over when she would think about all the things that happened to her or when she’s slip into her memories that she wanted desperately to forget. I adored how much she loved her family. She kept pushing her mother to do better because she wanted her to be there for her brothers. She took such great care of her brothers. She would give up anything to care for those around her that she loved so much.

Kalli had the most wonderful friends that anyone could ask for. Scout and Nate were always there for her and protected her and never let her down. I loved there connection and how strong that all of their friendships were.

Nate was without a doubt the most wonderful guy, ever. He was so great to Kalli. He was her best friend and looked out for her. Always there when she needed him.  He was strong, caring, and compassionate and could break Kalli’s defenses that she wanted so badly to keep up. I loved that he kept pushing and didn’t want her to give up on them because he knew they belonged together. I loved that even though they had been friends for so long that he held his ground and took the plunge. I loved watching their relationship unfold; it was really beautiful and real. They both had to work hard to keep the relationship strong. Trust is a hard thing to keep and give, but they never once gave up that they could believe in one another. I loved Nate.

This story had all kinds of drama going on, but drama that made you stop and think. All you wanted was for all the characters to make it through all the rollercoasters that life was throwing their way and come out stronger than they were before! I highly recommend this amazing story to anyone who wants to read a book that will touch you and speak to you. 

Rebecca Berto writes stories about love and relationships. She gets a thrill when her readers are emotional reading her books, and gets even more of a kick when they tell her so. She's strangely imaginative, spends too much time on her computer, and is certifiably crazy when she works on her fiction.

Rebecca Berto lives in Melbourne, Australia with her boyfriend and their doggy.
