Review: Focused & Driven by Savana Jade

Even though Xander was born with a golden spoon in his mouth, never once was he brought up that way. He was raised to work hard and earn his keep. That's exactly what he's done.
Dr. Alexander Cage is focused on one thing, his career. Ever since he was burned by his one true love nearly five years ago, he vowed never to open his heart up to anyone again. That is until he meets her...
Bria Powers has worked for everything she's owned in order to make it through med school. She bartends at night and interns during the day. She is young and beautiful, but doesn’t have time for a man in her life right now. She barely finds the time to breathe on Saturdays, her only free day to herself.
Being dragged to a motocross race one Saturday by her best friend, her world suddenly turns on its axis.
She's focused on one thing only, to make it on her own. He's driven by his career and nothing else. Can they bend the rules to make it work?

Review by Dawn

ARC received for an honest review

WOW!  What an awesome read!  I had the pleasure of helping out with this book and when chapters were sent to read, I wanted more.  I couldn't get enough.  The feelings that this book gave me were up and down.  I smiled, I laughed (yes out loud), I cried & I got frustrated.  When a book makes me feel the emotion the characters are giving, I automatically fall in love.

Xander & Bria are strong, hard headed people.  They are both focused on their medical careers and have no time for a relationship.  The chemistry between these two made me giddy and gave me that "quiver" when they were together (which was absolutely HOT).  They, however, tried to fight it every chance they got.  Not an easy thing to do.  They had their fun, but that was it.  Or so they thought.

I wanted to scream and shout at them when they fought against each other.  They were meant to be, but decided they shouldn't.  The twists Savana adds to the story blow my mind.  Never saw them coming.

Focused & Driven is a page turner til the end.  Will Xander and Bria stop being stubborn and finally give in to what is meant to be?  Or will they go their separate ways and move up in their careers like they had planned?

If you want a hot, funny, yet sometimes heart breaking book to read, I recommend this one.  It had it all!

Thank you Savana for letting me be a part of this journey with you.  I've enjoyed it every step of the way.  <3 p="">

Author Bio: Born & raised in Sunny Southern California, but now living in the mostly freezing Midwest.

Always had a passion for writing. And after living in the world of RP (role-play) writing for others, I decided to venture out on my own and write for myself.

I am blessed to be able to get the story of Jenna and Gabriel out of my head and onto paper (or the computer if you will) for everyone to enjoy! 

-Do you have a quirky thing you do when you are writing? Not really, I do love to listen to music while I write. 

-What is one thing that people do not know about you? I have a crazy antenna ball collection. 

-What is one thing that you want people to know about you? I'm just an ordinary mom that just graduated from med school that has loved to write since I was very young. 

-How do get ideas for your books? To be honest, I have loved the name Jenna. And I had the characters of Live Today roaming in my head for some time. I googled the name Jenna & searched Images to give me someone to visualize and ironically the band members from Tonight Alive fit my characters perfectly. So, here's a shout out to Jenna McDougall (Jenna Munson), Whakaio Taahi (Gabriel Gonzales), Cam Alder (Brennan Munson), Matt Best (Matt Harper), and Jake Hardy (Drew Johnson) from Tonight Alive for being more of an inspiration than I could imagine.  

-What made you want to become a writer? I've always written stories. I took writing and creative thinking classes in both high school and college. But it was the encouragement of a dear friend that finally gave me a push into writing. 

-What do you think people will love most about your book? I've been told that fans have fallen in love with the reality of Live Today. It's full of real life events that the reader can relate to. it has real sorrow, betrayal and laughter. 

-Who is THE ONE Author that makes you fangirl? Ooh, that's a tough one. I would have to say, I am a total Teresa Mummert Fangirl! She is such an amazing author! I really get sucked into her books.

-What is your favorite book that you have read? Favorite all time book hands down that I can read over and over again (even though it has a few grammatical errors) is The Pirate Series by Bec Botefuhr. Something about Jax and Jade gets me every time! 

-What television shows do you watch the most? Honestly, I don't watch a ton of television. But when I do. It's definitely Vampire Diaries and The Walking Dead. 

-Let’s play Best Friend, Boyfriend or Brother….name who you would put in each category. It can be celebrities, book boyfriends, models or anyone you want.  

Best Friend- I would have to say Shawn Dawson. He seems like someone that I would have a great time with with no pressure. 
Boyfriend- This is a toss up between David Beckham or Johnny Depp. no explanation needed =)
Brother- Definitely Gary Taylor. He's such a protector. No one would mess with me if they knew he was my big brother

-Name one thing in your life that you would like to do that you haven’t done. Hmmmm... If I had to pick one thing, I think I would have to say Travel the world. 

-What are the top 3 items on your bucket list? 

1. Visit each state in our beautiful Country and learn the history of each. 
2. Sky dive (even though I'm afraid of heights)
3. Feed a Giraffe. 

-How do you determine the cities, states etc. where your book takes place at? Well, with Live Today, their original home town was simple. I'm from southern California, so that's where I based them from. But Washington??? I don't have an answer to that. It's just where my mind took them. 

-Who is the person that has influenced you the most in your life? This is a tough one. There are too many people to mention from family to close friends to old dance teachers. 

-What is your favorite genre to read? This depends on my mood. Usually some type of romance. 

-What is your favorite movie of all time? Breakfast Club

-What is your favorite quote from your book? "It's always been you Jenna. Since the moment I laid eyes on you, I fell so hard the earth shook."

-What genre of music do you listen to?  Everything I find myself in the mood for. I am NOT a huge fan of country. 

-If you had to listen to a theme song to start your day, what would it be? Brave by Sara Bareillas 

-Cat or dog? Dog
