Review

"5 *****STARS all the way! WOW. WOW.
When I finished this book, I just had to sit back and say "Wow". OMG, I don't think I've ever been through such a wide range of emotions in one read. I laughed, I cried, I got angry, and there were times I was filled with pure joy. Best book I've read this year!"
----Cartir Lewis

"This is my first read from Lisa Eugene and I just loved it and love her! It was a great story with a lot of emotional up's and down's."
----LaGina

"This book needs a standing ovation, plain and simple."
     ----Misty Nickels

Overall Opinion: This is a hard book to review. I felt like it was well written, and it addresses the big issue of people with mental illnesses being stigmatized. Did I like the characters? Yes. Did I feel like I was rooting for their relationship to succeed? Yes. Is this a book that I'll read again? No. I also don't think this would be the book for everyone. Don't get me wrong -- there are some light moments that made me smile and swoon at times, so it's not All sad...but it is covering some tough subjects. The times that the h and H interacted, and just their overall relationship (best friends first before lovers type that can spend every waking minute together and enjoy it) dynamic is what made it a 4 star rating for me.

Brief Storyline: This is Alexa and Dex's story. They meet when Alexa crashes her Dad's car into Dex. After Dex tracks her down to get her information, they end up building a fast friendship. They spend more and more time together whenever they can, and end up changing their relationship and falling in love. Alexa is struggling with medical school among other things (check my goodreads review for a spoiler), and is keeping some big secrets from Dex. They have some hard times, but do get their HEA.

POV: This alternated between Alexa and Dex's POV.

Overall Pace of Story: Good. It was heavy so I personally slowed down a little, but I wouldn't say the the writing caused that -- it flowed well.

Instalove: No

H rating: 4.5 stars. Dex. Almost perfect. He only had a few moments that I wanted to shake him, but he more than made up for them and acknowledged his own mistakes (which is sometimes rare with our alphas).

What a combination! From the minute I started reading this book it seemed as if I was constantly laughing. I would find myself smiling while reading this book. I love the way the author uses words to paint the picture of the emotions between the characters. Even if the words to describe the emotions are not typically used where I am from, I knew exactly what she meant and I loved it. This book was well written, and flowed seamlessly. There was never a point where I said to myself “who is this?”, “what time is it in the story?”, or “what just happened”. Everything fit exactly where it was supposed to be.
The author described the characters very well. I have an image painted in my head of all of the characters, and I loved the tricky foreshadowing that the author used. You just think you know where the story’s going and then “Nah, it’s something else” happens. I cannot count how many times I was wrong about what was going on in Alexa’s past, or about the “who did what” mystery towards the end of the book.

I love the extreme detail that the author puts into the book describing medical school, the competition between the students, and the environment in the hospital where the students worked. The description of their workplace made me feel like I worked there. The writing made me feel as if I was Alexa. I could experience the same feelings that she was. When the story shifts to Dex I can feel his pain and emotions as well. This author is a true master of painting with words.

When I finished the book I felt like Alexa and Dex were my best friends. This book was so heartfelt and I can relate as I assume many women will be able to.

***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
***Contains graphic sex and language. Not for young readers***
***Cassandra Delorie #NerdGirlLola’s Review***

Disclaimer: This book deals with a multitude of different subjects from mental illness all the way to adoption. Please read with caution.

Now before I start just let me say that neither myself nor anyone close to me has gone through anything like what is portrayed in this book. The happenings in this book are real life issues that some people deal with on a daily basis. That being said here’s my review.

I am wrecked, totally and completely wrecked. I LOVE a book that can give me a good ugly cry and this one definitely made me do just that. From page one all the way to end I had a tear in my eye the whole time.

This book is eloquently written; it takes very difficult topics and gives the reader an insider’s view into the mind of Alexa, the person living with the demons, and Dex, the person watching from the outside. Both perspectives are insightful and devastating at the same time. As messed up as this may sound, I loved all the details the author wrote in to the story. It gave me a better idea of what Alexa was going through.

Though this book may not be for everyone I urge people to read it. If only to help the author with her goal of helping take the stigma away from mental illness and getting awareness for the issues covered in the book.

Overall this is an excellent read. I love this book simply because of how detailed it is and because I grew to love Alexa and Dex. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone over the age of 18.
