Review: 500 Days by Jessica Miller

500 Days by Jessica Miller 


Casper Covington had his music, women, and pretty much anything he wanted at his disposal. But the one thing that plagued his thoughts constantly was the one thing he couldn't have. The girl he met six months ago. A drunken one night stand that he couldn't get out of his head. The only thing he remembered from that night was her green eyes and the ivy tattoo that stretched the length of her body. In his attempts to put an end to the tortuous dreams of the mysterious girl, Casper’s attention is caught by the new bartender. There’s just something so familiar about her that his need to get to know her becomes more troublesome than he expected. 

Alexis Radcliff was raised by her four brothers making her as tough as nails on the outside but on the inside she wanted what every girl did – someone to love her, faults and all. She would be damned if she admitted that out loud and made a point to show she could use men just as easily as they used women. But when a sexy musician starts to show interest in Alex she has a hard time convincing herself to stay away. Alex knows everyone has secrets but hers are ones she doesn't want to share. But when she can no longer fight her feelings, her dark past slowly starts to unravel. 

Can true love conquer all? Or are past ghosts a haunting premonition of what lies ahead?


To say I liked this book would be an understatement because I absolutely loved it! Jessica Miller captured me from the beginning until the end!

I fell in love with the characters especially Casper. He is your typical playboy who brings home a different girl every night and he just also happens to be in a band. So yes he is definitely the hot rocker type. However, Casper has this one night stand on New Year’s and the intoxicating girl he slept with is imbedded in his mind. He cannot seem to get over her or the Ivy tattoo that wraps around her body. All he wants is to be able to find this girl and be with her again and again and again.

Then there is Alex. She is the girl with the Ivy tattoo and she was also affected from the mind blowing one night stand she had on New Year’s but she cannot remember who it was with. She is this beautiful woman who is very protected by her four brothers. Declan her cousin is extremely close to Alex and they always have been. In a way they are more like sisters and best friends.

Declan is a fiery spirit that works at the club Caspers band plays at often. They have a unique friendship like they are family. Casper would look out for Declan, but he also learns his friend  Colton has a thing for her. So what else does Casper do but set the two of them up together. Colton and Declan are so cute together … I just love the two of them as secondary characters.

Eventually Casper meets Alex through Declan, but they don’t seem to hit it off right away. Their relationship is more like a love hate relationship. When they meet each other they have no idea that they have already met before. Eventually Casper charms his way into Alex’s heart and they start to be together, but not after a rocky start and a bumpy ride. I was so happy to see them together.

There were a couple of things I didn’t like about this book. The book was long which wasn’t a problem but I am a series girl and this could have been turned into at least two book and kept going after that. I loved the book so much that I didn’t want it to end which is why I think I would have preferred it as a series instead. Also, the title I would have thought had something to do with Alex and Casper being together, but it didn’t. It was about Alex’s mother which sort of confused me because her mother isn’t the mail point of the story. It is the love between Alex and Casper.

Other than that I loved the book, but I am going to miss Casper and Alex plus their amazing sex!  I look forward to reading future work from this author.

Rating: 4/5

~About the Author~

I live in a fantasy world and have an over active imagination. But the best part about that is I never stop creating new characters and new stories to share. I love writing and expressing myself in a way that everyone else can enjoy as well. I work in the salon most days, but when i'm not doing hair, I'm writing or reading.
