When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one… (goodreads summary)
My Rating 5 STARS!!!
Let me start of by saying how much of a HUGE Colleen Hoover fan I am. Three years ago, I found slammed on kindle and have been obbsesed ever since. She is like the Nicholas Sparks of New Adult. With the perfect blend of romance, she always brings me to tears, I refused to read any reviews or comments about this book because I wanted to go into this book was a clear head. IT. BLEW. ME .AWAY!
Sydney is obsessed with Ridge and his protectiveness, his disability, and his raw talent. The romance between them starts off so innocent and by the end of the book you are rooting for each one with your hand over your head. Let's see I cried...
Then I read some more and cried again. Hoover always does that to me. She knows how to make a character so emotional that you can feel exactly who they are. oh, and the humor. She can make me laugh and cry at the same time. Damn Hoover you've got talent. Now on to the spoilers....
The cheating. While I normally hate cheating of all kinds, this book did it tastefully. They were not married, but sometimes you love someone, but they aren't the one. It was the same with Ridge and his girlfriend of five years. Maggie. Sydney made him feel, she was his muse and it was something that can't be forgotten.
