Review: Up in the Treehouse by K.K. Allen

Up in the Treehouse by K.K. Allen.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: July 19, 2016.
I wanted to tell him all my secrets, but he became one of them instead.

Chloe Rivers never thought she would keep secrets from her best friend. Then again, she never imagined she would fall in love with him either. When she finally reveals her feelings, rejection shatters her, rendering her vulnerable and sending her straight into the destructive arms of the wrong guy.

Gavin Rhodes never saw the betrayal coming. It crushes him. Chloe has always been his forbidden fantasy--sweet, tempting, and beautiful. But when the opportunity finally presents itself, he makes the biggest mistake of all and denies her.

Now it's too late . . .

Four years after a devastating tragedy, Chloe and Gavin find themselves crashing back into each other's lives. Haunted by the past, they're forced to come to terms with all that has transpired to find the peace they deserve. Except they can't seem to get near each other without combatting an intense emotional connection that brings them right back to where it all started . . . their childhood treehouse.

Chloe still holds her secrets close, but this time she isn't the only one with something to hide. Can their deep-rooted connection survive the destruction of innocence?

I’ve been in a slump with books lately. This book got me right out of it!!

Sigh! I loved Gavin and Chloe’s story. It was a heartbreaking journey. Sometimes when reading stories you just want to shake them and say if you would just talk it would be okay. But, in reality none of us do it easily. We all are afraid of rejection and heartache. It was easy to see it in their story as well.

The title of the book is so significant! Ugh! I could write about the book forever. But I want you to experience it for yourself. The tree house is built and destroyed and rebuilt in the period of the book and it is all significant.

I had so many emotions running through me. I wanted them to get together faster than they did but I know the story would then be over. But I enjoyed watching the struggle as they really fell more in love with all that happened with them.

Gavin is definitely a book boyfriend. He has always loved Chloe and was good to her except that he was afraid to lose her if he dared declare to her that he loved her. Then when Chloe was rejected by him, Devon, Gavin’s twin, stepped in and Gavin was hurt and would never be anything more to her than a friend.

In one night, everything would change and it would be four years later before they would see each other again and old wounds opened up. It was their journey that totally captivated me. I loved every minute of their story. And when I thought I had figured out the last piece of the puzzle, I so did not see what came next! My heart hurt for Chloe then. But, I was rooting for them nonstop!


If you want a great realistic love story with a feeling of forever packed into it than this is it! It is one of my favorite love stories now!!!
