Katherine is deeply in love with her boyfriend, Matthew, when she meets Trey. There’s an instant connection between her and Trey, and the feeling both excites and panics her. After all, she loves her boyfriend, so why does she feel so drawn to Trey–almost as if he’s a drug? She takes risks and has a beautiful, and wild story.
Well, one more complication proves to be too much, as Katherine loses control. Both Matthew and Trey struggle to pick up her beautiful, broken pieces, but it’s unclear to them both with whom her affection rests. Soon, Matthew joins the army reserve. When war breaks out overseas, he’s deployed for active duty and sent far away from the woman he loves.
With Matthew gone, Katherine chooses to lean on Trey. Eventually, Matthew comes home a different man. War changes people, but so can time, as he finds when he again sees the woman he still wants. Trey will protect Katherine from everything, even Matthew’s dangerous PTSD, but Katherine still has feelings for both men. Who will she ultimately choose?
I won a copy of this book from Goodreads.
Where do I even begin? This book was not good. It was extremely immature, badly written and needs some editing. There is a character that is in two places at once, there is Aubrey who was Audrey for half a chapter before going back to Aubrey. The main character Katherine is the most beautiful woman in the world and every single man that she is around wants her, which is not realistic. Not to mention the bad representation of PTSD.
I should have been able to read this book in a couple of hours, but it took me two days. I couldn’t read more than ten pages at a time. I was constantly putting the book down to rant about it whenever my mom was around. I don’t even know how many times I considered just not finishing it. The only thing that made me read the whole book was the size. It’s less than 200 pages so I figured I should just suck it up, read it and review it.
If this review is harsh, I’m sorry. I don’t want it to come off that way, I just really disliked this book.
