DNF at 65%

Before I read this book, I read the reviews of it and all of them raved about how good this book was. I'm a sucker for half-naked guys on covers, or really any hot guy on a cover of a book, and this guy was wearing red. Combine the model, my blind love of the color red and the blurb and reviews, and I just had to read this book. As soon as I opened the book and started reading however, I knew I was going to have issues with this book.

Brave is told from both Eden and Xander's POVs. Both are from the same town, but they both have different career choices that were going to bring them fame, until life got in the way and destroyed both their dreams. Now, years later, they are battling their demons and the fear of living, until they cross paths and find themselves fighting to be together.

Let's get one thing out of the way first. I liked the plot. I really, really liked it. It isn't the first book I've read about two people with a past and issues and demons, but I still liked the story and what was happening. It's the only thing that got me to read 65% of the books before I couldn't take any more. What I didn't like, my biggest issue, was how everything was happening and how it was presented and written. This story is about two people who live in a world of pain and have so many hang ups and issues and torture. I should be moved by their story, I should feel pain and my heart should ache and I should cry. I did none of these things, instead, I was bored. So very bored.

Before I even finished the first chapter, I was already struggling with finding the will to continue. The writing was so flat and emotionless, I got bored from the first page.

After reading the Preface from the author, “Brave is new territory for me. I saw a photo and I had a whole storyline pop into my head. It was tragic and beautiful – a story of being brave enough to face and overcome your fears,” I knew I was going to love this book. The words grabbed at my heart and propelled me into chapter after chapter of wonderful writing filled with such emotion that I couldn’t help but feel all encompassed by the characters and their stories.

The depth of the H, Xander, and the h, Eden, was amazing. I felt the emotions they were struggling to contain both individually and together. I laughed along with their jokes, cried with their sadness and pain and reveled in their happiness and contentment.

The most poignant and heart stopping quote of the book came from our beloved H to his beautiful Gem (best pet name I’ve ever read), his precious girl. “You may not believe me yet. But I’m going to remind you, show you, just how beautiful you are. You gave me beautiful once. I’m going to give it back to you.” Although you will have no context of this quote until you read the book, once you do you will understand the enormity of it and how it shapes the relationship between Xander and Eden. Brave is a beautiful story of courage and strength, the ability to overcome your demons (both physically and mentally) and, most importantly, true love.

This was my first book by Natalie Gayle, but it absolutely will NOT be my last. I am really looking forward to the second in the series…I just hope we don’t have to wait too long!

Wonderfully written, intense love story beneath a compassionate tale of struggle, heartache, heartbreak, and pain. The depth of compassion in this book moved me deeply, and it was personal at times, knowing that each of us, in some way have felt something to bullying, fear, self deprecation, insecurity for ourselves or someone around us at one point in our lives. And how we chose to deal with it is also a life changing decision for some. The way these two people handled these decisions were at times, heart wrenching, then heartwarming and something to behold. I truly loved this book for the life lessons it can share if you are wise enough to grasp them and for the feel goods it gave me. The characters were so well scripted that they came alive on the page for me and I sailed through the book from first page to the last without a break in between. A new author for me that I will look forward to for more of! A must read for sure!

I was gifted a copy of this amazing story of Xander and Eden as they take a very emotional journey together. Both are fighting their own Demons for different reasons. Xander is determined to push Eden into rediscovering her self worth and helping her see that beauty is not always skin deep it's what you carry inside is where true beauty can be found. He just needs to get her to trust him and see that he really wants to help her and that he genuinely does have an interest in her as more than a friend or charity project,Eden is not going to be convinced so easily as she has spent the last 5yrs hiding in the shadows after a tragic accident that has left her both physically and emotionally sacred. Xander is mma fighter who has also been fighting his own Demons for 3yrs now after a tragic accident occurred while he was fighting in the cage. No matter how hard he tries to push it away to the back of his mind he can't forget what happened. It isn't until he is approached about going back in the ring that everything comes to the surface. it takes Eden pushing him to finally get him to come to terms that he needs to come out and fight his own demons before he can preach to others about fighting theirs. They both have a hard and emotionally journey to travel to get to where they need to be but if your Brave enough to stand up and fight for the ones you love it will all be worth it. if I could give 10 stars I genuinely would this book is an amazing read and will have you feeling so many emotions and will have you fallen in love with both Xander and Eden. And it delivers such an inspirational message that you should never judge anyone because you don't know what they are or have been through. Thank you so much Natalie for sharing this beautiful story. Can't wait for Dane story next.
