Yeah, this book was one of the weirder reading experiences I've had. It just didn't click for me. I know it's because it was a triangle. Had I known it, I would have given it a pass. First time with this author and I'm very unimpressed.
First, hire an editor.
Second, indicate in the blurb when the story is a triangle.
Third, I need a reason to care about the hero straight away, or I'm out.
I'm a sucker for the angsty stuff, but this story didn't resonate at all. And I have to care about the characters, which I didn't. Not the main ones, anyway. I never felt a connection to the hero, or felt he and the heroine as a couple. I was invested in the other guy from the start. I guess someone had to be the fall guy in the story. But this poor guy was going to suffer and I hated that. It was the heroine's fault too, IMO.
This book was convoluted and confusing. I never picked up the rhythm of the story. I just kept wondering why I should care about the hero. He just came out of nowhere with no build up. The whole engagement/betrayal scenario was kind of a mess, and really he and the heroine were a '0' on the chemistry scale. But truthfully, she was so awful and self-indulgent in her misery I didn't want her with the other guy, either. I cared about him and he deserved so much better than that skank.
Other than that, I didn't find the story remarkable. Could have done without half of the sex scenes, but even that wouldn't have helped. The story just didn't work for me.
I will read the next book in the hopes that the writer will have a care with Hayden and give him the HEA he deserves, but after this one I'm wary of this writer.
Reyna has some really bad self hate and for the last couple of years she has been in a horrible friends with benefits relationship with Hayden. Hayden was one of Marisa's brothers. They both feel such guilt for her death. Reyna hates that she betrayed her best friend and the woman that saw so much more in her than she saw in herself. She has been trying to end the hooking up part with Hayden because she knows it is destructive for them both. Liam comes back into her life and he wants back in her life. He's trying to be there for her and he is still in love with her. After more heart breaks, Reyna finally starts seeing a therapist. She starts trying to heal and be a better person.
Liam is a really great guy that loved two people. He loved Marisa but he knew Reyna was his one. He couldn't help his feelings. Then he and Reyna hook up and he's trying to decide what to do. Marisa dies and he feels such guilt but also Reyna completely pushes him away and makes sure he knows she doesn't want him in her life. He's had a hard time but he became best friends with Marisa's older brother Theo and they have been there for each other. When he and Reyna see each other again, he just wants to be there for her and be with her. He puts himself out there so much for her and he keeps getting hurt by it.
Definitely worth reading.
This book is quite the Love triangle/ emotional, young adults just getting ready to finish grad school and have dreams, only to be faced with Love, Loss, unhealthy and destructive, sexual desires along with sex scenes that can get pretty heated at times!!
This is the story of 'Marissa Clarke, Liam Darby, and Reyna 'Miracle' Miller (as her mother calls her and truly her middle name..) these three have dreams of graduating from Oxford purchasing property & all going into business together... Things take a HUGE halt and over the next 3 years are torn apart, picked back up only to break into pieces once again.. until the end, when healing takes place... However; so many people are effected you get the entire gang from the 'London Lovers series and they all cross into this book too' so a lot going on..
So just a tiny bit about this 'heartbreaking yet also heartwarming book'
Marissa is pretty much the glue of the three - she is a very positive and lovely girl, she is dating Liam and they have a dear love .. Then you have Reyna.. Aka 'Rey' she is very complicated and doesn't feel she deserves love, her mother is a doctor and in her eyes, can do no wrong and is always calling her 'miracle' and no matter what Rey does, even if she acts out or inappropriate - her mom just turns it around to how wonderful she is and it messes with her way 'love should be'
When she meets Marissa, she sees Rey ... Really sees her, and for the first time, Rey feels a connection almost more than a bff even a sister. Then there is a chemistry between Liam and Reyna - yet one 'unforgettable night' changes and even destroys, sooo many lives !!!!! This is quite the book and first from this author.. I am definately going back to the beginning to get a better grasp on the secondary characters in this story.. Theo, Leslie, Finley, Brody, Hayden, Vi, and oh my... Frank.... Love.. Love...Love Frank!!
