Firstly, over half of this book is about her relationship with a THIRD guy, who isn't even mentioned in the description, who happens to be an abusive jerk (among other things). I wasn't looking for a abused-heroine-who-needed-to-be-saved type of book.
Secondly, there was hardly any real dialogue between Kaitlyn and her supposed high school "soulmate", Chris, let alone any chemistry or even relationship. In fact, there was exactly ZERO depth to any of the characters or relationships.
Bottom line - don't waste your time or money. Honestly.
Why? I can't put my finger on it. I have read lots of books that were emotional, and I shed a tear or two, but this book? This book had me sobbing; I went to sleep crying, with the tears actually soaking my pillow.
Perhaps it's because I can relate to Kaitlyn, maybe a lot of women will relate to her. She's a stay at home mom, looking after a young child. Her husband is out at work all day and when he comes home there's not much of a relationship. This is not how she envisaged her life....
"Do you know how depressing it is when your daily goal in life is to sweep up crackers off the floor and dig rocks out of pants pockets before throwing them in the washing machine? I feel like I'm in solitary confinement most of the time..."
Kaitlyn needs a break, and goes away for a weekend with some friends. This weekend will ultimately change her life for ever. While she's in a bar, a local band are setting up on stage and she freezes when she hears a voice that she recognises from years gone by, one that she never thought she'd hear again. When her friends realise that something has spooked her, she tells them the story of how she met Chris King.
The story then goes back to Kaitlyn's high school days, when she was in a relationship with Trevor (the high school star football player). Trevor is perfect on the outside; no one else sees the side of him that Kaitlyn does. Unfortunately for Kaitlyn by the time she realises the type of person he really is, she's in too deep and is too afraid of him to end things.
Trevor made me so mad - there were times when I was reading that I wished someone would see what he was doing and give him the same treatment.Read more ›
So Much It Hurts is a story of exactly that. It is full of so much emotion with difficult and real, life altering decisions.
Kaitlyn is a married woman, but I must say not a very happy one, and she has a son, Eli, that is pretty much her life. What she so desperately wants and needs though, is a break. Most of us have been where she is and after some grumbling from her husband, Michael, she finally does get her break and heads off to the beach with her girlfriends for a weekend getaway.
What Kaitlyn finds there is some fun in the sun as well as some much needed peace. Then something or should I say someone happens and she runs into him. Chris Knight, the man she fell in love with 8 years ago.
He enveloped me in his arms and whispered into my ear, "I've never forgotten you."
The other women are very intrigued as to who he is and why he affects Kaitlyn the way he does, so we are brought back in time, a very painful time in Kaitlyn's life where we are introduced to Trevor, Chris and in the end Michael.
Trevor was the ultimate sports player, good looking and popular guy, pretty much every teenage girls dream. He has is sights set on Kaitlyn and the two begin their very long emotional and abusive relationship. A relationship that starts out fun but quickly turns in every wrong way you can imagine. Trevor is obsessive, abusive and I despised him as well as every vulgar thing he did!Read more ›
The book starts out in present time. Kaitlyn is unhappily married to Michael with a 5 year old. She's on a girls beach trip and runs into Chris. I cant even classify him as a "high school sweetheart" or "high school first love" because when the book jumps into the past, he wasnt either of those things.
In highschool she dated Trevor who was a major TERD. But she always went back for more. I get it, she was young and stupid. But then she met Chris, the boy from juvie who lived on the wrong side of town. They became friends, he helped her out a few times. Then something major happened, Chris stepped up and fought, and then went back to juvie. That doesnt sound like a "love" now does it?? Considering she was always dating Trevor.
The highschool past took up more than half the book, became boring and I started skimming through the blah blah blah moments. There ended up being quite a bit. So, with a ton of books on my TBR I had to ask myself, should i keep <s>reading</s>, skimming. Or cut my losses??
Then came back and finished. I still stand by my rating. The "connection" Chris and Kaitlyn have doesn't make sense. The story tumbled on and was messy. I didn't enjoying it, being all over the place. It was a cluster of a story and of characters. It left me feeling like this......
