SUFFER LOVE BY ASHLEY HERRING BLAKE - BOOK REVIEW

Hello everyone!

I am here with another book review, today it is Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake. Thanks so much to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book to review. All opinions are my own.


Suffer Love

This book was exactly what I thought it was going to be, exactly what I wanted it to be. And it still ripped my heart out.

Basically, this is the story of Hadley and Sam. Both are dealing with some parental issues. Sam's parents are recently divorced, and he, his sister and his mom have moved back to the small town where they used to live. Hadley's family is still shaken a year after finding out about her father's affair, however they are trying to make things work.

From very early on, we learn that Sam has a secret he isn't sharing with Hadley. It is fairly obvious and comes out in the first couple of chapters, but I won't say what it is, because I don't want to spoil anything. Even though he wants to dislike Hadley because of this secret, he ends up becoming friends with her and developing feelings for her.

Hadley, oblivious to the lies about Sam, begins to fall for him. After finding out about her father (in a pretty horrible way), Hadley pretty much swears off relationships and men in general. What starts off as a distraction with Sam begins to become something more.

The relationship between Hadley and Sam is really great. It's not instalove, they become friends for a bit first. I really liked how they interacted with one another. They were able to talk about their home life when they needed, they were both dealing with similar things, but they also joked around and had fun.

The characters were really great, but so was the plot line its self. I really liked how things were organized, and I really felt, as someone who has been in their shoes, the kids reacted very well to the actions of their parents.

Obviously this book deals with some major issues like divorce, infidelity, etc. but it also was about first loves and taking chances. There are some great lessons in this book, both for kids and adults. There was one point where I was on the brink of tears - not full on crying - but just about. And I'm not a crier.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It made me emotional and I really felt for the characters. I would highly recommend this one to anyone who is going through similar things, or is just looking for a twisted romance thats a little deeper.
