So I should start by saying one of the things I really dislike in books is secret pregnancies. Unless there is a really good reason, the girl fears the baby daddy, the dad is abusive, etc., then I hate when they just decide to not tell the father they are going to be a father. I really can't stand that as no matter what you feel for the person, how hurt your feelings are, they deserve to know their child. Or at the very least the child deserves to know the rest of the family that he has.
The first part of this story, the before story, was just okay. I didn't feel the connection between the main characters so it was not as good as it could have been. I didn't see that they were really desperately in love, but I went with it hoping it would get better in the after section.
Amber and Freddy meet by chance one day when her car breaks down near his garage. They of course knew who each other was, but never really interacted. That was all it took for their whirlwind romance to start. From that moment they became inseparable even though Freddy was a tad older and Amber was applying for and going to go off to college. Only with Freddy still in her hometown she doesn't want to go off anymore. Especially after what happens to Freddy. She wants to give up everything to stay there with him and help him out. I liked Freddy, as much as I like anyone in this story, especially because he wouldn't let Amber give up everything for him. He knew that she would regret it one day and he didn't want to be that weight around her neck that kept her down.Read more ›
Poor Amber and Freddy, they fell hard, they fell fast, and then they fell apart. I loved Anna's storyline for Amber during her last year of high school. She does an amazing job of putting down on paper what it is like to fall in love that young, how it pulls you and surrounds you in these amazing feelings and makes it hard to focus on anything else but the person you are with, especially for someone like Amber who is a challenging home life. Now you know from the onset of this story that Amber and Freddy don't make it through their young romance, the book opens with Amber rushing back after a 10 year absence to her small town home village to help her ailing estranged mother, running in to her high school best friend, and then the heart wrenching appearance of Freddy at her door.
I loved how we get the entire back story between these two, rather than just a flash back and then their current story. It was almost like reading two books of the same series in one and I am so glad it was just the one because if we'd been left with what I know would have been the stopping point for 'book one' I may have just thrown my Kindle across the room, haha.
Now I will say that there are a lot of choices made in the book, mainly by Amber, that make me want to shake the heck out of the characters. Even with that, I loved this group of characters. They were so real and refreshing. Amber's relationship with her best friend made me flash back to my high school best friend. I enjoyed how there wasn't this ugliness underneath their friendship that we seem to see in a lot of books. Was there trouble, was there jealousy, yes...but that happens, what is important is that they stick together.Read more ›
By: Anna Bloom
5 out of 5 stars
The story This Love by Anna Bloom is a coming of age romance. Amber always planned on leaving her mother, father and their small town behind as soon as she graduates. Then comes a chance meeting outside Bale and Son’s mechanic shop. She meets and falls in love with Freddie Bale and even when everyone tells her that she is making a mistake, she puts all of her hopes and dreams on their love. Then on the last day of school Freddie calls off their relationship and Amber does the only thing she can thinks of, run. Now it is ten years later and Amber returns to care for her ailing mother. Freddie wants to make amends. Amber is now confronted with her choices from ten years ago as they could change the lives of everyone she has ever loved. Will first love be given a second chance?
This is an awesome love story! It is exactly the story that makes you curl up on the couch and get lost in. You are swept away in a story about first love, tragedy and hope. Each action that you take has consequences, even ones that you don’t think of at the time. The story is told from the POV of Amber and she is not shy or pull any punches in regards what she thinks or feels. Her character shows her strength of character and love for those important to her. Freddie is a character that every girl can swoon over. He is self-assured in his abilities in fixing cars, however when it comes to making hard decisions regarding Amber and their relationship he seems to be a bit lost.
I highly recommend this book if you’re looking for a feel good love story with a few bumps in the road. Then again when doesn’t a love story have a few bumps, makes the ride that much sweeter. There is adult language and adult situations so I would recommend for those 18 years or older. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
