Sunny Shelly’s Review: Like You Care, by Kaydence Snow


Like You Care by Kaydence Snow is LIVE and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

“Gripping is an understatement when it comes to this book. From start to finish this book is an emotional roller coaster that keeps you captivated. I ugly cried, I raged, I cheered so freaking hard for both Mena and Turner it’s not even funny.” ~Saucy Southern Readers Blog

I am nothing.


I’d rather be invisible than deal with what happens on the days my classmates decide to acknowledge my existence.

But then Turner Hall shows up – all cool confidence and witty banter – and all of a sudden I don’t want to be invisible any more. I want to be seen.

I want him to see me.

I’m not who he thinks I am but I’m starting to suspect he’s not all he says he is either.

Just my luck that he starts to make friends with my tormentors. How am I supposed to tell him who I really am? How am I supposed to show him my true face? What if the boy I’m falling in love with decides I’m nothing too?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

I first read Like You Care as part of the Bully Me charity anthology, and I was hooked on Turner and Mena’s sweet romance. So I was anxious to jump into the full novel and see what happens where the novella left off!

From opposite sides of their apartment balcony, these two high school seniors got to know one another in the purest of ways: by talking. Mena is definitely at an advantage as she’s figured out who Turner is amongst her high school classmates — but he is clueless that the girl next door is actually Phil/Philamena, the girl with the birthmark on her face who is the target of the cool kids’ bullying at school.

When Mena’s hand is forced by the mean girls and Turner figures out who she actually is, my heart broke for her. I was glad to see her stand up for herself and rip into Turner for standing by silently. And when the bullying reaches an awful, horrible climax, Turner redeems himself by being Mena’s white knight coming to her rescue. (Seriously, teenage girls suck.)

There’s an interesting subplot with Turner’s family going on, and I’m curious to see if that will continue to play out in the rest of this series — hopefully his little sister gets a book of her own because I’d love to see how the trauma she went through impacts her relationships moving forward. I wouldn’t classify this as a bully romance since Turner isn’t one of the bullies himself — but he does stand by silently as the popular kids torment Mena before he knows who she is. But once he becomes her savior, he really goes above and beyond to let Mena know that she’s beautiful with or without the makeup she wears to cover the birthmark marring her face. And through the love of the hot new guy and the support of her cousins, Mena gains an inner strength and confidence that she so desperately needed.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
