Daniel has had a tough life - his parents died 2 years ago and his brother deals drugs and there are always parties and people around his house. People think he's hot but the girls don't want to get to know him in his opinion. Lisanne is a music major and has never had a boyfriend of any kind. They start out as friends but then move into more.
Daniel is a wonderful guy, but he does have some issues and gets angry and ready to fight pretty quick. Lisanne is there for him and she shows him that people can care about him and see beyond appearances.

Where to start with one of my favorite “coming into your own” stories? This has neither perfect main characters, nor the perfect relationship, but I think that’s what I love about it. We meet Lisanne and Daniel as they each start their first year of college. They each have their hang-ups, preconceived notions of who they are, who others are, what the world is, and they each have their self-esteem issues.
Their relationship like, like so many young ones, has its problems, but is full of passion and fun. The sexual encounters are the most realistic I’ve seen and are honest. Thankfully honest. Too many books have outrageous alphas, frightening dates, stupid girls, or just plain unbelievable bulls*** that no one should believe. Inexperienced young girls aren’t stupid and young men with experience aren’t all cruel. This book is good at pointing that out.
The secondary relationships are really important and I found the relationship between Daniel and Harry, Lisanne’s little brother, to be one of my favorites. Their scenes are the ones that made me laugh outloud.
I don’t want to review the exact the details of what causes the most growth for Lisanne, because it’s everything about her relationship with Daniel, but interacting with Lisanne’s family has a major impact on Daniel. More importantly, it attempts to remind the reader to look beyond themselves. Yes, at times it can feel at bit much, but given the characters, I didn’t care because it felt appropriate. I can’t say enough about this book. It’s a reread for me. 5 nuts.
I find it harder and harder for me to connect to the characters of stories written in 3rd POV but the writing in this story was excellent giving me a chance to not only connect with the character and fall in love with them but with the story as well. The writing flowed easily and effortlessly.
This story has been done plenty of times before; a shy nerd falls for the mysterious bad boy. However, I liked the authors take on it. Lisaanne was shy, she was nerd but she was so damn likable and relatable. I enjoyed her conservative side, it made her character all the more realistic. Daniel was not your typical bad boy. The complexity of his character was very well executed. I felt his every emotion, I felt his pain and his struggle. His disability pulled on my heartstrings of course. Lisaanne and Daniel were a match made to burn, but their journey to finding love and finding themselves made this story different from the many others similar to it.
I did find myself skipping pages and paragraphs. At 525 pages, the story dragged in some parts. I also found myself confused some of the time; I couldn't understand the why's of the characters emotions and actions. Not sure if that had anything to do with the writing though. Most of the confusion came from character development, as in I couldn't understand why Lis would get so upset at Daniel or why they argued so damn much. It was literally frustrating to read.
Overall though I enjoyed it. It gives you a good insight into the minds and emotions of people dealing with a disability and how it effects them and those they love. Lisanne's support for Daniel despite shortcomings and short fuse was a beautiful thing to read. Their journey from friendship to love was just as beautiful and romantic. This was a good read full of emotion, frustration and inspiration. A good read full of struggle and heartache that leads to love and healing.
