➦So. Advertised as a page turner? Sure, I guess. If you’re like me and enjoy reading primarily about the development of a relationship between two main characters. Let’s start with this: childhood friends to lovers trope.
➦Now, there’s a lot of jumping between past and present in the book. I loved it because it helped me understand the characters better, it gave them depth and I was able to sympathize with them. But. BUT. If you’re one of those people who need something fast paced or you’re all about action this book might not appeal to you.
➦The heroine has been through hell. I’m just gonna say it, it’s not a secret. She’s been shot in the face. Yeah. She has been lucky to survive and had reconstructive surgery.
➦Needless to say the events of that fateful night are haunting her and not only because of the shooting. On that same night she was betrayed by her best friend and the guy she has been in love with since childhood. Now, I’m about to bring out that award, people.
➦And the hero isn’t an asshole. He was just clueless. S’ok. Shit happens. He’s back in town to redeem himself. So how will he become her friend again? Will she love him again?
➦Well, I loved the book, as you have gathered. I always sympathize with a heroine that has been wronged. It gives me the feels and I expect groveling. With that said, I wanted more groveling. There can never be enough groveling. lol
➦Recommended for those who love childhood friends to lovers tropes, damaged heroines/heroes who help each other heal. Can totally be read as a standalone.
