Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Emotional read!

Olivia and Nix couldn’t have had more different upbringings. Olivia knew only neglect and abuse as she grew up an unwanted child of a self-centered mother. Nix had a privileged background raised in a caring family but that did not stop him from overindulging in alcohol and drugs. These bad decisions culminated in the worst tragedy of his life.

Olivia had dreams and worked her plan to the letter as she strives to make something of herself. Nix struggled to find purpose as he worked towards atonement. Both were hiding their true selves until they met and realized, despite their struggles, love could be a part of their lives. Circumstances beyond their control brought unfathomable harm and hurt into their lives and tested their love almost to the breaking point.

I really enjoyed this standalone, new adult story. The author painted backgrounds, personalities and realities that brought the characters to life. I could almost feel the barriers that Olivia and Nix held up to the world and cheered as those protective layers slowly lowered. Switching between their points of views, the storyline flowed seamlessly and painted a complete picture of their relationship.

I cared about what happened to Olivia and Nix and shed a tear or two as they worked through incredibly difficult situations. Topics such as drugs, alcohol and rape were treated compassionately and with great empathy. The story’s conclusion left me completely satisfied and I am looking forward to more from this author.

Hi I am the L in this venture short for Leli. I grew up reading there was no other free entertainment out there aside from television so this was my escape through the years living with my own personal heartaches. I start writing as a way to put my thoughts/feelings on paper, instead of keeping them in. Oh and I'm tone deaf so any music I heard was just for dancing never really paid attention to lyrics still don't.. So all the music reference in this book is A.

Hi all I'm A (Aimee). I've always had a passion for writing. English was always my favorite subject and I love writing heartfelt passages especially since I've experienced so much in my life. I didn't develop a passion for books until a couple of years ago... Thanks a lot to L. Books have brought me an escape from my stresses in life, when I read it takes me to another world.

And I can't wait to bring that when our book project is complete.
