He taught me how to keep my emotions in check and how the outside world is a cruel place. He said there was no such thing as love, because love hurts people, and it makes people weak.
He said I wasn’t weak.
My whole world changed when I met Ryan. He made me feel different, in a good way. As our friendship progressed so did my feelings. Feelings I wasn’t supposed to have. And I wasn’t sure they’d be reciprocated. After a stint in jail, it only made his heart harder.
But I was always the one there, to pick up the pieces. I just wasn’t sure how long I’d keep doing it. I was just a girl in love with a guy that I couldn’t have.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3.5 Stars
This was a pretty good best friends romance. Corinne has been in love with her best friend forever, but was afraid to tell Ryan so and lose their friendship. Meanwhile, Ryan has always been her protector, and I felt like he was too stuck in that mindset to really see what was going on in front of him.
I wish there had been more from Ryan’s POV because what was on his mind would have helped me understand him better. There was a disconnect between the characters for me, despite a great premise and a romance that had a lot of potential. I think that’s why this story didn’t click for me as an I-loved-it book.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
