Synopsis

Skye followed her long time boyfriend to Seattle for their first year of college, but he dumped her after only a week. The relationship brought only pain and destruction in Skye’s life, and yet, she can’t bring herself to open up and live her life.

“What if I am already broken into pieces?”

She hates to be touched, hiding under her oversized shirts and behind her wild frizzy hair. Even her bubbly roommate can’t reach her. And yet …

“I’m the guy who knows how you can hurt so much that your insides feel like they’re cut and bleeding.”

The tall, handsome, and tattooed TA in her psychology class changes everything when he literally collides with her and confronts her. For the first time in a long time, she wants to try and open up to this guy whose dark, intense eyes can’t hide his own pain despite his dazzling smile getting to her.

However, just when she’s starting to live again, her ex-boyfriend comes back, breaking her time and time again, making it all the more complicated.

She wants to fight for herself and for this building thing with the TA, even when he pushes her away, but can two broken people patch each other up?

“I never thought colliding with someone could change lives, but it is possible.”

* Due to some shocking scenes, this novel is for readers of 18 and up.

review

I am really into the New Adult genre right now. I have been totally looking forward to this book for a while now and I am so happy I got the chance to read and review this one.

The first few chapters of this book  was really slow and not my favorite beginning but it go really good after a little while. It went from kinda shallow to heartbreaking rather nicely and I really enjoyed that.

Both of our leads are broken characters who had a really rough life. I love reading books were the mains meet and try to help each other heal and I really loved these two together it was really fresh and enjoyable. Another of my favorite plots was included in here where the Main guy is the one who initiates the relationship( any kind friendship or romantic) its nice to see the guy invested and not the girl drooling 95%  over the guy in the book.  Plus he is a little older than the main girl Yay!

I really liked Skye and Duke which is rare for me. I usually get really invested in one of the leads not both but this time I liked both of them and their story was told really well and I don’t think anything was lacking in the plot.

One of my critiques for this book is Duke pulling away from Skye in a lot of scenes. I wish we got a little bit more in his head so we could see why he was the way he is. Maybe a few chapters in his point of view would be really interesting. I kinda also which we had a little bit more backstory of Sean we were told his history but a little bit might of told us why he became so cold and evil.

Overall this was a really good addition to the new adult genre and i am really glad I got to read and review it. I will be looking out for more books by the author in the future.
