Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.
They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.
Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.
I have just recently started reading Colleen Hoover books. New Adult isn’t my normal genre and honestly, I was afraid that a lot of them would be like Fifty Shades of Grey (which I haven’t read, so that is just hearsay). I have been really glad that I started reading Hoover’s books because they have been much deeper and more entertaining that I assumed they would be.
- I always love Colleen’s characters. I feel like they are real, they experience emotion in a normal way and are relate-able.
- I really liked Tate. I felt that I could have been a lot like her in that situation, and it would have totally been me trying to have a relationship that did not have strings attached, but actually falling in love.
- Miles was intense. I loved when he would let the world in and actually give a little bit of the story, but it was tough when he was such a hard wall to climb. I can totally understand the pain, I have no idea how I would deal with it.
- I enjoyed the way the story was split into two POVs. It was from Tate’s POV in present day, and then it was from Miles POV 6 years earlier. It made for a suspense that really kept me listening to the story, waiting to hear what was next.
- I really wish I would have gotten more of the relationship at the end. But I can understand the stopping point.
- Sometimes it was so frustrating to not know what was going on with Miles because it seemed so over the top with the way he held everyone at arms-length. But after finishing the story, I understood.
