““Tell me a happy something, Sutton.”
I was only seven the first time Grady Bowen whispered those words to me. Cloaked by the black sky under a blanket of stars, it was easy to get lost. He didn’t have any good memories of his own, and needed to borrow mine. I’d willingly give him anything.
Being infatuated with that boy was a beautiful curse. What could have been special didn’t get the chance to bloom. He’d never see me as more than his best friend’s kid sister. That was a hard lesson to learn, but not the most difficult.
Grady had always been struggling against the odds. Eventually he quit fighting and let his family’s reputation own him. Try as I might, those influences were beyond my reach.
He didn’t mean to break my heart. Or maybe he did. I shouldn’t have made it so easy for him. Either way, our wrongs against each other carved new lines between us.
I went four years without seeing Grady—each one more painful than the last. That distance did nothing to dull my feelings toward him. But things are different now. Most noticeably is Grady. I barely recognize this man he’s become. And that’s the way he intends to keep it. Not that it really matters.
Grady Bowen stopped being my happy something long ago.”
This book begins in a severely desperate hole.
At first, I was really iffy about continuing on. We find the main female character in this crazy state as she’s trying to sleep with someone. But thankfully, the whole story got better from there.
Instead, the writing goes form emotionally-driven to a romance that I was glad I continue on. It was a second-chance, brother’s best friend scrambled into an angsty, hard-hitting book.
I gave this one 3 out of 5 stars due to the very rocky start, but I think it really plays out to a place where it really drove us to the right mindset.
