Weight of her World Kindle Edition
Bullies come in all shapes, sizes, and ages.
Brynlee McAdams is used to relentless verbal criticism from her mother and tries to ignore that vitriol to focus on caring for her younger brothers, both of whom have her whole heart. When her brother Brayden becomes the target of school bullies, Brynlee steps in when her mother refuses to, even though she knows it could set them on a collision course with potentially devastating consequences.
When Sarah Cain—Brayden’s kind and engaging third-grade teacher—gets involved, Brynlee discovers she doesn’t really have to handle everything on her own. Brynlee’s blossoming relationship with Sarah also makes her realize that by trying to be the daughter her mother wanted and the sister her brothers needed, she might have forgotten about her own wants and needs.
But Brynlee’s path to happiness is littered with obstacles, and she learns that finding your way sometimes means going completely off track and trusting someone you love to guide you back.

Brynlee is only 22 but is responsible for care and safety of her two younger brothers. Her mother is a narcissistic, emotionally distant bully. Bryn works full time while attending night classes and is about to graduate from college. She wants a place of her own away from her domineering mother but doesn’t want to leave her brothers in the clutches of her mother. When she meets her youngest brother’s teacher, her world begins to change.
This book is not a romance in the truest sense of the word because the romance between Bryn and Sarah is not the focus of the book. The focus of the book is on the relationship between Bryn and her mother, which makes the book an emotionally exhausting read. The romance between Sarah and Bryn doesn’t begin until late in the book and, while sweet, is rather shallow and lacks real emotion. The intimate scenes seem to have been added as an afterthought and just figuring how the characters are positioned takes time and seem impossible to achieve.
The relationship between Bryn and her brothers is sweet, but with everything else being so dysfunctional, it’s hard to enjoy the sweet with all the sourness surrounding it. There are other things wrong with this book and a few more things right with the book, but to discuss them would be adding spoilers to this review.
For the most part the book is well written, and Bryn is well written. However, the other characters, including Bryn’s best friend and Sarah, remain amorphous and at the end of the book you may realize there was no emotional connection to them.
If you like books that grab you and take you on an emotional roller coaster of a ride even if it’s a negative ride, this book is for you. If you want to read a LesFic romance, this is not that kind of book.
My thanks to Bella Books and NetGalley for an eARC.
