Addison is kind of bullied by this girl Stacy, but then when Stacy sleeps with Addison’s boyfriend, it becomes okay to ridicule her and call her names. Now Stacy isn’t a likeabke person, she’s the character that’s been designed to be hated. But Addison and her friends just turn into “mean girls.” They certainly didn’t play the bigger person.
It just bothered me how it was wrong for people to treat her poorly, but it’s okay for her to treat others the way she was.
I tried to get passed the drunken party, but these characters were so childish, I just couldn’t do it.
The h kissed the H at a party a year ago. She confessed to her boyfriend and begged for his forgiveness. He has made her life miserable since the kiss. He abuses her and then cheats on her. She catches him in bed with the H's girlfriend and finally breaks up with him. The H has been waiting for his chance with the h. He is very interested in her. He starts his pursuit of her by showing up at her place of employment ...with other girls... because he is smart like that. They do finally get together.
likes: the story was not bad. The characters could have been more interesting.
no likes: I didn't like the characters too much. I thought that the h was made of stronger stock based on her athletic skills. She could have left the abusive relationship a year ago. I also thought she became too much like the girls she hated after she started dating the H. I had a difficult time warming up to the H. There was an incident early in the book where the h tripped because of his friend and her books flew everywhere in front of the H and his then girlfriend and his posse of friends. He did not do anything to help her. No one helped. He just stood there and had made some comments. He liked the h so WTF?
And then there was an incident where he could have made everyone aware that he was dating the h but again, he did nothing to show everyone that she was with him and he left her hanging. I felt the H was not respecting the h much.
I felt the story and the characters needed an oomph and more.
Second, the blurb makes it seem like there will be a lot of focus on Addison's study habits, but that is not the case. They were mentioned here and there, but they were a very minor part of the story. There was a lot more focus on partying, her relationships, and her job.
Third, although the story had a good ending, I found it to be abrupt. There was a situation with the ex where the police were called, and afterwards there was one sentence about it. That's it. It felt very anticlimactic.
As for the characters, I felt bad for Addison. I have been in her shoes and know how fear can make you afraid to act. The top two reviewers for this book have obviously never been in an abusive relationship. Being athletic has nothing to do with being affected by abuse. I was glad Addison had such good friends to stand by her. Parker I had mixed feelings about. He wasn't directly involved in her being bullied, but he did stand by and let it happen while he watched. If he liked her as much as he said, he should have stood up for her. He also tried to manipulate her in the beginning by flaunting other girls in front of her and even brought them to her work. Thankfully he matured a bit throughout the course of the story. By the end he had redeemed himself, and I ended up liking him.
I think the author did a good job writing about both the abuse and the bullying. I liked watching Addison grow and heal, and I liked seeing Parker mature and own up to his past mistakes. I also liked how their families were woven into the story and how Parker had such a good relationship with his Mom. I am looking forward to Elsie's story next.
I have to say right from the beginning that this age group in a story is not my usual preference however I did enjoy reading this one. It is a sweet romance but does deal with some deeper issues in a lighter way. The enemies to possible lovers troupe works well and I'm already intrigued by book two with the Australian student.
Addison goes through a growth period, one where she builds self-confidence and her inner strength is very appealing. Having the rug pulled out from under her feet certainly helps to build her determination and courage once she sets her mind to do that. I found the characters likeable, well except for the 'nasty' ones and I really wanted to sock to those guys-a good indicator to get that invested in the story, well it is from my perspective.
Bring on book 2!
Parker Kent is on the basketball team, popular and never short of a girl on his arm.
But what others see on the outside is never what is happening on the inside or behind closed doors.
Addy is stuck in an unhealthy relationship.
Parker can’t hold back his feelings any longer after that kiss.
Lovelock has created a beautiful story with ugly undertones, loved all the characters.
Devon was fun and loved that he said it how it is, we could all have a Devon in our lives.
