November 9 ~Review

"I would have never let
anyone else borrow my heart
if there was a chance in Hell
that you might want it back."

Until one dat Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabrication a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist. Can Ben's relationship with Fallon-and simultaneously his novel- be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?

Give me a second while I try and still my heart.

This book.... Just.....words escape me..... so many things happened..... and so many emotions happened in my heart and head......Deep Breaths. 

This was my first non YA book. It is a new adult book by Colleen Hoover. Because I am single and had no plans for Valentines day, I decided I would lock myself in my bedroom and read a book. Little did I know that I was picking up a book that would take a piece of my heart away. I started this Feb. 14 2016 and finished it Feb 14 2016. It's a pretty small book, only 307 pages, but man I tore through that with the speed of a bullet. 

Right from the beginning this book was interesting and then Ben pops into the story. Let me tell you, Benton James Kessler is HILARIOUS! He was so funny and combined with Fallon's sass, I was actually giggling in the living room while my family looked at me like I was crazy. 

You can't contain the giggles and smiles that this book that demands those very things. The steamy moments were hot. Hot.Hot .HOT. and the romantic moments tugged at my heart. I was half way through the book and I wanted it to end right there right now, it was perfect. It was cutesy, funny, bubbly.


There will be a moment in this book where you are balling your eyes out, unable to contain the hiccuped sobs and the ugly sniffles. 

And then.... you get past that part and get to the REAL tragedy. How can one book hold so much heartache and destruction? You're heart will break and you will want to close the book. 

DON'T DO THAT!!!! You have to keep reading. I promise you, it will get better. I had to have my mom read the last page and tell me if I could keep reading without doing too much damage to my psyche. She said it was okay, and so I kept reading. I kept reading and she was right. It got better. 

So I beg you! Finish the book! You have to!

So I kept reading, sorta, I had tears in my eyes so it was kinda foggy, but I managed. My crumbled heart was slowly gluing itself back together before I hit the ultimate plot twist. That was all I needed to heat the glue and make my heart whole again. 

I don't know why I was so connected to Fallon during this book, but I was. I felt for her, I wanted everything to be great for her. I loved this girl and I loved Ben and all the minor characters as well. I loved them all and by the time I got to the end of the book, I was crying again. This time good tears.

This was a fabulous read and I highly recommend that you pick this up! It was a fast paced book, and incredible read that had me on an emotional rollercoaster and I loved it. Even the tragic parts.
