Anna is truly a sweetheart. She looks for the good in people and tries to be nice to everyone, overlooking their faults. But her senior year in high school, a boy she crushed on forever, pulled a nasty prank on her. He made her think he liked her. When he asked her out in front of everyone and she accepted, they attacked her verbally about her weight and being ugly. She struggled to get over how this affected her for a very long time.
Brayden, his family, Ro and the Starbucks crew all played a part in helping Anna realize her self worth. They helped to fix the negative view she had and showed her how they truly saw her. This book could certainly help others see it's possible to overcome poor self esteem issues and find their happily ever after.

The characters are described beautifully. You get to know the physical characteristics, personalities, plus the insecurities and why they have them. The depth of each character brings them to life, makes each relatable and for me, I could relate on some level. Most people have insecurities and in our formative years, especially the teenage & young adult years, our peers & family play an enormous part in building us up or tearing us down.
Annie is a great example of how delicate people are as we're growing up. Her family's ridicule started off as jokes, but the joking never stopped, and became singular & unsupportive, when she needed love & encouragement the most. The embarrassment at school, practical jokes that are obscenely cruel, body shaming, harassment and feelings that nobody liked her for her; that's excruciating pain. However, it's not just girls that are insecure. Brayden's insecurities about not being "man" enough, worry if he's lovable or not, is he doing enough, can he be protective but reign in jealousy, his temper and hurting others because he's hurting too. Both Anna & Brayden's feelings are intense for their young ages, but not uncommon and not limited to youth. Adults face insecurities & fears just the same.
Realizing how much positive reinforcement works and how beautiful it can be is evident in this story. Romance is the frosting on top that brings another layer to this story. Plus, don't we all want to feel good about ourselves? I know I do. When we're encouraged to keep moving forward at our own pace, given space to figure out what we need deep down inside to rise above, be content, forgive and move toward the positive, it's beautiful to see. It's beautiful to see it happen for others, but truly wonderful when it happens to us as individuals too.
Highly Recommend to readers that are teen to adult ages. It's a book that made me smile at the end & I think it will make other readers smile too.
And when she finally gets a backbone, it's for the dumbest, most ridiculous, unreasonable reasons. Instead of lashing out to the people who have, or are bullying her, she lets it out on the person who loves her. Defending her. Trying to fight her battles with her. Ugh! Brayden is a saint.
The writing was ok. It seemed somewhat immature. But this is a book about an eighteen year old girl. Put into consideration the target reader the author is trying to reach, understandable. I wanted to like this book, but, it was a miss for me. Sorry
Brayden was adorable. He was just was Anna needed in a man.
I loved how she finally stood up to Sam. That was a horrible thing he did and I can't believe he thought he could just say sorry a year later.
I have to say I wasn't a fan of her family. I figured out what was going on before Brayden did. Although her parents did redeem themselves towards the end.
