"Brave" By: Natalie Gayle
Wow doesn't quite express the awesomeness of this book. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and is more than skin deep.
Eden has been hiding from the world since a fire left her badly scarred both physically and emotionally. She struggles to come to terms with the changes in life and the way people treat her. It is easier to hide from the world. An encounter with Xander has her stepping outside her comfort zone and starting to live again. But Xander has his own demons to fight after killing someone accidentally in an MMA cage fight. He has not stepped in the cage since.
Can they both overcome their demons to be together?
Both these characters show remarkable bravery in facing their demons and not hiding in the shadows any longer. They nurture each other and give the other the strength and support they need to live again. While Eden is reluctant for fear of being ridiculed and have her heart broken but Xander has the patience and the faith in her to heal and move forward.
This was a powerful story that left me wanting more from these characters and this series. It was an emotional and beautiful read that leaves you feeling hopeful and happy.
