About this deal

This book infuriated me, not bc it was badly written but because the rapewas a plot point to facilitate angst between the couple. Also give some reasons why I HATED it (had to skim the book real quick to remind myself and literally wanted to spin kick myself right after for that idiotic decision cause now I wanna scrub everything I read out of my brain again). Some people don't really know how to take me, depending on my mood depends on how I react to things, in general, I'm pretty sarcastic, it's not often I'm emotional, it annoys me in all honesty. Existe la posibilidad que haya estado más susceptible de lo normal mientras leía este libro porque yo, que me enorgullezco de mi falta de emociones, estuve a punto de llorar mas de una vez.

Like when he made a big show to show that he was with Becca infront of others, when in fact he thought it was a shitty thing to do when Charlie did it in the last book. I’m not mad at how she portrayed the effects of trauma (for example: depression, weight loss, anxiety) because it made sense. No one asked him to make all his sacrifices, he did it bc he felt guilty for how he treated her, so narratively speaking she doesnt owe him anything but the epilogue was written so you felt like she DID owe him something, with everyone going to bat for him, and that is gross.One of her best friends for her whole life gives her a long lecture on how even though Ryan has dated other girls for years, it doesn’t matter because he loves her. After all he had done to her (it was emotional abuse btw) he still was rewarded by getting back together? God, this book was a roller coaster that starts from the top than rockets down few hundred meters like the KingDa Ka in Six flags.

It really touched me, reading about what the characters went through and I know it's only fiction but this book really sheds light on what happens every day in real life.Como les dije, tal vez me encontraba susceptible o tal vez es simplemente la forma en la que está escrito, pero sufrí. Okay, so I understand the author wanted to talk about the experience of SA and rape victims, but adding a very detailed and traumatic scene like that for shock factor and for the romance between the main characters just didn’t sit right with me. The 'author' chose to focus on a paper-like heroine who spends the whole book trying to chase her ex-boyfriend, the one who spits her out because he thinks she cheated on him ! I think it spent too much time focusing on the love interest’s feelings and less about the actual MC and the multiple issues happening throughout the book. On the bright side she did wait four more years before finally giving in to his hovering (who moves across country for someone that doesn't want to be with them anymore?
