I read the story in my kindle with white text on black background, but the author left all the highlights from the editor and it was distracting - it kept making me wonder what it said before the edit!
I really liked the first book by Lea J., which she wrote in Slovenian, but Because of You was even better. There were more characters, depth, romance, action, sparks, twists, fire and soul. I couldn't put the book down until I read the last word. The main character, Aaliyah, has spunk and she is strong, which is what I like in a heroine. She went through a lot, and she didn't just lose the person that was the most precious to her, she is also hiding from an awful person who wants to harm her because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thankfully, in a new place, she finds friends, a job, some peace, and of course - love. That is, until the bad person tracks her down. At that point everything in Aaliyah's life spirals out of control.
The relationship with Ryder was intense, to say the least. In the beginning, I disliked him with all my heart - he was a jerk, and not "the good kind". He acted like a total ass toward Aaliyah, completely without reason. I warmed up to him when he realized the error of his ways (that's a nice way to say he pulled his head out of his ass) and from then on, we get a lot of steamy scenes that required a cold glass of water and a fan near-by. They were so sweet together.
The secondary characters were nicely written, and I liked that there were many layers to the plot. As I said before, you never know what is going to happen, so you sit on the edge of your seat, biting your nails and bracing yourself for what will come next. This was a very sweet and also suspenseful story about a girl who has gone through a lot and cannot seem to find peace and happiness in her life. I really enjoyed reading about her journey, I laughed with her, felt her grief and cheered for her. And the happy ending she got was exactly what she deserved.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something sexy, mysterious, suspenseful and thrilling. Watch out for this author, you will never get bored with one of her books in your lap!
Also, she's Slovenian, and there aren't many writers in Slovenia in this genre who are so well-known internationally as she is and will be. I wish her all the best and I can't wait to read more from this new, fresh, promising author.
Aaliyah lost the one person in her life that took care of her and was there for her through anything. Knowing the murderer made it that more hard to bear. Aaliyah moved across country to go to college and to escape and to hide from the killer. Hoping he wouldn't find her. Getting a great roommate Addison. She slowly becomes friends with a great group of people. She still holds herself back. She doesn't want to involve them in her life. Then comes Ryder, Addison's brother. He has had enough of girls just wanting him for his money. He feels an attraction to Aalyiah but why should she be any different from the other girls. yet there is something about her that makes it hard to stay away.
Ryder was an ass in the beginning with how he treated Aalyiah and when he realized she wasn't like he thought she was. She didn't want to give him the time of day. He wasn't giving up. Aalyiah was innocent. Never being in a relationship with a guy. She was confused about how Ryder was treating her. Yet she was attracted to him. As they become closer and Aalyiah's past starts to come back can Ryder protect her will he stick around. the book has it all, murder, suspense, some angst and lots of face fanning sex scenes. I loved Aalyiah and Ryder as a couple. They were two pieces of a puzzle that fit together so perfectly.
I did like Aaliyahs character and her story, although her relationship with Ryder was quite drug out.
Overall, I will not be recommending this book to anyone.
