*Review Contains Spoilers*
This was a sweet, touching read. Lets first start off with the characters’ names, so unique and refreshing for a novel. I love names that are different but simple enough for me to pronounce. So the main character, Kyra struggles with depression and as a result of depression, she copes by cutting. Now from the perspective of cutting and depression, Meg Collett hit the emotions and feelings that go along with these directly on the head. Her descriptions are accurate and prefect. That being said, it really bothered me that Kyra moved to a new area and didn’t take the initiative to find a new therapist seriously. She just kept putting it off, and putting it off.
Then there is the mysterious, sexy Hale Cooper. Kyra seems to have no relationship experience and minimal intimacy experience, but she willingly throws herself into Hale and quickly loses her virginity to him. This was a red flag for me, instead of focusing on therapy, she decides to focus on a man. Another major concern is every tie there is intimacy…it seems to be unprotected. The entire book is building up to this monumental moment, which you can probably predict and then comes the light epilogue that leaves you with a smile on your face. So mixed feelings leave this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars for me.
It's not that the story was particularly gripping. In fact, I really didn't care for Kyra......night the whole is she or isn't she a cutter. No, I just thought that the supporting characters were more interesting and developed.
I would have been tempted to give a higher rating, but the gratuitous sex entries guaranteed that 3 was all it was going to get. I mean, what's the genre here? Chick lit, I guess. Maybe I'm just a chick that has her own sex life and prefer my reading to be a bit more chaste. I'm no prude, for sure. But, the choice in wording and phrasing had me skipping entire paragraphs.
While in the subject, why do authors feel as though everything has to be cinched up tight by the end of their book? Life is messy. Even if it meant leaving a few loose ends, the book would have resonated clearer and true to life. Magically, the problems solved, the story done, "the end ", and etc. Yeah, right.
The fact that this is a "Book 1" is a but presumptuous as well. I mean, hey, you plan on writing a series..... Go for it. It may not mean I'm going to stick with you for the journey. Another reason to leave a little something undone. Make your audience want to find out about whatever.
But, that's the whole point. I liked it, but didn't. Does she or doesn't she? Who cares, it's all faking it anyway.
