A sweet, dark and redeeming romance. Jordan is an adorable hero.
This book was a great read and I consumed it in one seating. I was getting a little annoyed with Mia in the beginning, because it is hard for me to understand why a woman would out up with abuse, how a woman would not reach out for help, how a woman would think so little of herself and allow an abusive relationship. I get the psychology behind the reasons, how it is possible to be blind and affected so much that it becomes the only thing you know and are familiar with. And to top it all, the way to deal with the pain is also something that damages your body, mind and soul.
Mia finally steps up for herself, in her own damaged way, but it is a step further to try and change her life and begin to heal. Then she meets Jordan, another slightly damaged soul with some baggage of his own, but kind, funny and understanding. A good guy, and it was just what she needed to understand that there was something different out there.
Jordan's male POV parts were very funny! I loved them, aside from the typical clichéd phrases (specially the ones referring to sex) I mean I know sex is in men’s mind a lot, but sometimes the writers take this a little over the top. I loved how he kept getting close to Mia, and the way he was falling for her. But…
Again I have to say: Timelines… It just seems that it is a recurrent situation, or maybe an imperative in romance/new adult/young adult books but I just do not fall for the I love you like crazy in a matter of days scenario… I mean please at least give the characters a month…. Don’t write down the whole month, maybe skip a little bit in time.. I don’t know..
I felt too much happened too soon, and the plot about Mia’s Mom….. I TOTALLY predicted the outcome like ages before the revelation.
Overall the book is nice, cute, has a positive message regarding abuse and the need to get help when needed, to find yourself and to reach and open up to others, you never know!!!!
