Thanks to the author who gave me a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.
Jacqueline Blunt has had more hardships in her life than any other person her age. She’s went through being diagnosed with a disorder which would cause others around her to judge her quickly, being left without parents due to her mother being a drug addict and her father leaving, and also just having to deal with all of that herself. She has her best friend Travis and his family to thank for trying to make her life better; however, there are times when even they cannot do anything for her. Then Lee Bennett appears in her life and he is the opposite of her. He has had everything in life that any one person could possibly imagine, but he isn’t satisfied at all. He feels as though he is missing something really important. When he encounters Jacqueline, he doesn’t really know what to expect or what to think of her; however, after a few encounters, they start to get to know each other and things soon blossom in something deeper than they could ever imagine.
I was very intrigued after reading the synopsis on how the author would bring these two characters together because although I’ve read many different books on characters who are complete opposites of one another and who are brought together, I wasn’t sure on the dynamics of Lee and Jacqueline since the circumstances seem to be a bit different in this case. However, I really liked how the author brought them together because it really wasn’t love at first sight or anything at all. They gradually got to know one another as friends and became more than that. This probably sounds really weird, but in a way, I liked how Lee wasn’t sure on Jacqueline and left her sometimes, but then he realized that she was so different from other people and that he needed her. He helped her through things that others gave up on. He helped her through her time of need.
Sometimes it’s necessary to let others in and to give up some substance of control in order to be whole again and to also fix what’s already been broken. This is what Jacqueline had to do because I’m pretty sure she’s used to taking care of herself and doing things her way, but in order to both Lee and her to work, she had to give up things that were hard for her to give up and in return she helped him with things that plagued his life. I thought this was beautiful because they balanced each other out. Sometimes opposites really do attract. Haha. All in all, this was a lovely book.
