“You’re worth every bad thing that’s ever happened to me, because going through them led me to you.”


Even when he was still young, I’ve already liked Cole, and him growing up and getting his own book was something I was really excited about. This is why I feel like this book should have been written in Cole’s POV, not Shannon’s.

The thing is, all those hardships that Shannon went through? She did all those to herself. The thing with abusive relationships is that the abuse lasts for as long as you stay in that relationship.

Sometimes, when we’re mad at our partners, we say things we don’t mean, things that could maybe make them feel like we were putting them down. An abusive relationship does not need anger to make you feel small. You could be having a casual conversation and your boyfriend casually says a negative thing about you from out of nowhere, with the intent of just putting you back to your place. Also, I’ve seen more women from abusive relationships who get to move on and become better people. Shannon was a bit judgmental. I guess I’m not a fan of her when she was antagonizing Cole.

I didn’t like Shannon. At all. However, I really liked Cole and him growing up just made him more adorable. For him alone, I’d give this book three red hearts. He was the same cool, collected artist who grew up way to early and picked himself up with the help of friends who became family. This is also the reason why I feel like this book should have been written in his POV. I feel like he would have had a lot more stories to tell and would have been more interesting.

“I want to protect you while at the same time I want to shatter you,” he murmured against my lips, “but only in the best way possible.”

“He’s spent his formative years surrounded by men incapable of restraint when it comes to flirting outrageously with their wives. Each one of them … is a cocky, arrogant, overconfident bugger.” She grinned. “But you won’t find men who are more loyal or loving to their wives.” Her expression turned serious. “We’ve all been through a lot. As has Cole. Like us, he knows what’s important. And he’s been deeply influenced by the men in his life.”
