Review

Never have I read a book with a more fitting title. Wow... A Beautiful Struggle is a well written novel about a young woman's struggle to falling in love after an abusive relationship. The characters were well written and emotional. Not going to lie, the sex scenes were hot. And everything in between made this a very enjoyable book. - Crystal, 5 star review from Goodreads.com

I loved this book. There was so much to it that it drew me in and I finished it in a day. I couldn't put it down. A few things were a bit different for me being from the US and not Australia but once I got past that........the rest is history. I fell in love with Elliot/Evan and was just as heartbroken as Katrina was but things happen for a reason. You will definitely not be disappointed in this book. READ IT! - Ginnie, 5 star review from Goodreads.com

I absolutely loved this book. I loved how strong of a character Katrina was, I loved David and Elliot, and the ending!

I am not one to read books with weak female characters. I hate the wishy-washy or insta-love types so Katrina was right up my alley. Not only was she physically strong, but she was mentally strong. She said what she wanted to, even though at times she probably shouldn't have ;). And even when she was emotional, I felt like it was deserved. :(

David was the ultimate guy best friend. I loved how he saved her in the beginning. It absolutely killed me when thing went south! Elliot is fabulous but David is superb! Every girl should have a David in their lives. :)

The plot was perfect. Even though I kept switching teams (Elliot or David) I was very happy with the end results. Nothing was forced and the book felt like it unfolded in a fashion that was real and not fake. The only thing I would have changed about the book was seeing Beth or Bianca get beat at their own game more. I loved when Katrina would put them in their place!

This is a great short read that I would recommend to anyone over 18!

SPOILER ALERT - Do not read if you don't want to know major plot points and how the story ends. I can't believe this novel has any good reviews. I often wonder with relatively new/unknown authors, if all of her friends are maybe writing positive reviews. There are so many reasons why this novel sucked. Number one: there is no such thing as a STRONG HEROINE who lets her boyfriend get away with putting her through a glass window, beating her up more afterwards, and "possibly" attempting to rape her AFTER he beats up her best friend, and DOESN'T PRESS CHARGES because he agrees to be out of the apartment when she picks up her things??? Are you fricking kidding me? Seriously. And then, when she runs into him later at a bar, she agrees to have a drink with him and his enabling friends, as if he didn't put her in the hospital and leave her scarred (literally) for life? AND THEN, when he beats up her best friend again, does she finally press charges? Does she realize that he will inevitably do this to another girl and part of the blame is on her for letting him go scot free? NO. She tells him to leave her and her friends alone forever. That'll learn him! I don't take abuse against women lightly, and it should never be used as some kind of stupid plot point in a way that indicates that anything but pressing charges and getting a violent criminal off the street is the answer. And best yet, does her best friend finally press charges? Nope. He's just as stupid as she is. STUPID STUPID STUPID.

But beyond that major issue, there are two others with Kristina. She has a great best friend, loving family, goes to "uni" to become a lawyer while working part-time in a law firm AND is training for triathalons.

I received this book for an honest review!

I read this book so fast and i am sad that it had to end. This is a story about Katrina who is trying to move on with her life from her ex-boyfriend Christopher. It is very hard for her to find a boyfriend due to her best friend David all the guys get jealous of him. When Katrina gets a job at a law office she meets Elliot who never pays attention to any of the girls. Well one day Trina goes for a run on lunch break and runs into Elliot where they start to get to know each other. One thing lead to another and they ended up falling in love. That is when everything becomes a struggle.

I could not put this book down i was in contact with the Author the whole time. Thank Lilliana for dealing with me LOL. This was a Beautiful book i was kinda sad that this story had to end. I would really like to get Elliot story on how he felt about everything and how he managed with all his Struggle.

**CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!***

Well shoot, I am very torn on this book. On one hand, I LOVED it, while on the other I was very disappointed and let down by it. I loved it because the passion between Elliot and Katrina was great! They seemed so completely made for each other and he seemed to be so completely in love with her the whole time. I was disappointed by it for that reason too. Why couldn't Elliot have gotten the HEA?? I really felt for him, and while it was completely clear even from the book blurb that David was in love with Katrina I wasn't his biggest fan because of the Beth situation. He could have tried to move on with someone neutral, not someone who he knew didn't get along with his best friend, and supposed woman he loved. I just wish there had been something more to Elliot to make me more okay with the fact that she didn't choose him. Usually I am all about the guy chasing after the girl, but she didn't even try to talk to him, and I just wonder if that would have been enough to fix them and have him open his eyes quicker.

I really am just torn between what my overall feeling was. If she or Elliot had managed to fix things, then this would unquestionably be a 5 star book, but because of the choices the author did make, I just can't give it that rating, and while I feel like 3 stars is a little too harsh of a punishment to the story, I don't think I can justify 4 stars. So where does that leave me?? I just don't know. I have never had such a difficult time rating a book before
