a book in review!

Brief Summary:
Seth is back. 

When he walked back into my life, it almost felt like the pieces of my broken heart could be fixed. I thought we could go back to being best friends, but then I started to feel what I had been blocking out for years. I tried. Boy, did I try! But once I started to let him in, I wanted nothing more than to cross that line from friendship into something more… 

Just when I think I can move on and let myself be happy, an ugly reminder from my past comes storming in and threatens to destroy the sliver of hope that’s been growing since Seth came back. 

Do I even deserve to be loved? 

“I’m not asking to fix your heart. I’m not asking to mend you. I love each and every shattered piece of you. I’m asking that you let me love you. Let me love each piece of your broken heart, and I swear to you I will make up for every heartache you have ever experienced.” 

I came back for Josie. 

I knew I’d have to fight for her, but with the loss of her dad and the truth about what happened with her and Blake, I quickly realized that making her mine was going to be a lot harder than I first thought. The problem is, I can’t pretend like she’s just my best friend. I can’t pretend I don’t want more. 

I’m willing to do anything to get her to admit she has the same passionate feelings for me, because I know once she opens up and stops lying to herself, I can show her what it really means to be loved. It’s a battle of wills, but my love for her is stronger than her will to stop me. 

So I fight for her. I fight because I know she deserves it.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Josie is like that friend that you just want to shake your advice into. The author takes you on a roller coaster ride for sure. I was on pins and needles waiting to see what was going to happen. You'll laugh, you'll cry, this book will mess with your emotions. And with an ending like that, you'll want book 3 to come out immediately. I recommend this 4 star book to anyone who is looking for a new series to get sucked into, xo!
