Loved the characters and the relationship dynamic between the main characters and the secondary characters. I loved how tragic and emotional the issue the main character had to deal with and appreciated how she didn't just get over it. Her progression was believable. I loved the love story between Becca and Levi. I also, loved the fact that Levi wasn't perfect. He had some major DB moments, but I still loved him.
My only complain is Gibson could probably gotten three books out of The Harder I Fall. The beginning went by so fast.
Super excited to read The Deeper We Get and read Chad's story, which you get a glimpse of at the end of this book.
Becca had a horrible childhood , nightmares plague her as she starts of her college experience far from home and her little brother that she has practically raised. Her mom is a drunk and her father is in prison for the horrible things he did to them years ago. It is heartbreaking to read of her father and mothers actions but also to read of Becca stepping up to give her brother Chad all he needed , she was and is such a brave and loving sister. Becca has no desire for relationships of any kind but finds herself living with 3 other girls and making fast friends with them. She is devoted to ballet and school. Her goals hinder her social life but she does not seem to mind. That is until she meets Levi. He is not giving up on his attempts , he is willing to take any little sliver of time she has to offer !! So of course he breaks her down and she comes to realize he may be just what she needs. He falls fast and hard but Becca is holding him at arms length. Will Levi put up with this or will this be the thing that ends his patience ??
Levi comes from money and has no problem spending it on Becca to help her achieve anything and to help her brother in a time of need. It may seem unrealistic but I would help those I loved if I had money so....... Levi's family is genuinely filled with great people and what they do to step in and help Becca and Chad is wonderful and if only more people could be like that !! There is much heartbreak in this book and Becca & Chad's struggles do get the best of them. Levi makes a few bad decisions and I was totally heartbroken but I do believe in the long run these are the things that help Becca heal and get to a place in life she can be happy and healthy. Thank goodness she wrote that damn letter !!
I enjoyed the book , loved reading about the dancing , I hope my children have a love for dance as Becca did !! I look forward to Chad's story and to see how Becca , Levi and his family are doing !!
Becca is an amazing girl, intelligent and caring and strong beyond her years. Her life has been tumultuous at best and deeply wounding at worst. She is broken inside and she has come to accept that she will never be able to live a normal life. That made it all the more sweet and romantic when her life began to change. Enter Levi, an amazing guy with some issues of his own. He starts out as the perfect Book Boyfriend, but as it always happens, there comes a time when he loses some of his shine. But the beauty of the story doesn't end with Levi. There is beauty in the friendships she has with her roommate Sadie and her boyfriend Julian, also Levi's best friend. There is also the unexpected family she finds, a family that shows what family should really be about.
I'm not going to lie... the ending shocked me! A good ending, but unexpected!
Things to love...
--Sadie. Kind, patient, and caring... everything a best friend should be, something that Becca needed in her life.
--Levi's parents. And I can't explain why without spoiling a fantastic story line!
--The deep and dark issues of life. They were dark, but they were real and poignant.
My Recommendation: Fantastic contemporary romance! I am reading the pre-release copy of the next book in the series, The Deeper We Get, and it is FANTASTIC!! I gave this one a 4.5 mugs!
