This is what happens to Sam as her life goes through so many loses. This is what Cory is trying hard not to ask.
I deeply LOVED this book! It brought so many emotions out.
At first, I wanted to really dislike Cory because of the selfish life he was living, but then I started to feel sorry for him because I saw how lost he was. I also felt deep emotions for Sam because of all the rotten stuff happening to her, she never seemed to get a break.
Amy Matayo has written a heart tugging story of true love and friendship, of forgiveness and healing, and of learning to let go of the lies which eat away at us.
This book has moments where you might want to scream at the characters and then cry because they are going through such tough stuff. It’s a book you won’t want to put down until you finish. It is a gripping story which will leave you hopeful of redemption, mercy, and grace.
I highly recommend getting this book!
I was given this book by the author for an honest review, all opinions are my own.
My only slight disappointment was that I hoped for him to more clearly recognize his need for and faith in God since, going forward.
The Whys Have It is an enthralling read. Matayo gives us a story of heartbreak, grief, and the transformative power of love that takes the reader on an emotional rollercoaster. Her two lead characters: Cory Minor and Samantha (just call me 'Sam') Dalton are complex and so true to life. I'm sure many women readers will fall in love with Cory and it didn't take me long to develop a book-crush for Sam. I'm in awe how Matayo is able to dive so deep so quickly with her characters.
Cory is a rockstar. Major, major rockstar, 5 Grammy-awards major. And he enjoys the fruits his success brings him. He enjoys the fine things but does exercise some restraint especially when it comes to women and drugs. He's a thinking-man's rockstar. He meets Sam through tragic circumstances which takes him back to his home town, one that is full of unpleasant memories and a secret that has haunted him for a decade.
He's drawn to Sam. Sam has a heart that's been refined by the fire of heartache and loss. It's given her perspective, courage and depth of character. But she's also fragile with a lovely playfulness that endears Corey to want more. Matayo captures the essence of those early courtship (I love this old-fashioned word) days, two seemingly mismatched individuals who want to know what makes the other tick. And yes, there is passion but Matayo writes this discretely and with tenderness.
And it's messy. But all good relationships are. Aren't they? And it only serves to make us want more of these two excellent characters.
The story is told in alternate first-person POV: Cory and then Sam's. I enjoy reading a romance this way. We get greater depth of insight into the 2 characters. The other cast members are relatively minor but Phyllis is a beauty and has a servant's heart and some fabulous Godly wisdom.
This is a powerful story of redemption, forgiveness (of others and self) and acceptance.
I'm a sucker for gripping first person accounts and Matayo doesn't disappoint here. Both of the main characters are finely drawn. Well done and highly recommended.
She has a way of getting into her character's heads that it makes it seem like she's been through all the things the characters have been through.
It is really like she's experienced their hurts and their joys. So in telling their story, she makes those characters come to life and suddenly you feel like the characters are real. They are open and honest. When they hurt, you hurt. When they laugh, you laugh. And when they play their guitar and sing to millions of people, you get to be a rock god too.
This book will make you care about Cory and Sam. It will make you feel loss and pain and understand why sometimes you just want to run away and hide from it all but why you really need to just stand and deal with it all.... And in the end, you'll have read a story of friendship, love, forgiveness and how all of that can lead to healing.
