How can you begin to live again when you’ve already been forced to…die?
Evangelina Ricci is trapped in a world that’s a never-ending nightmare, a constant ache in which consumes her every breath. Unable to bear the torture any longer, she does the one thing she can to take back control.
With her best friend Jace in tow, Evangelina attempts to escape her darkened past by leaving for college and diving head first into an aggressive schedule, determined with everything she is to make a name for herself. There’s only one problem—she can’t run away from the demons she struggles with. The demons that’ll forever be there, locked inside, battering her soul. Hiding behind a flawless façade, Evangelina faces her ghosts until her world is turned upside down, invaded by…him.
Blake Turner. Sweet, witty, flirtatious and drop-dead gorgeous, he finds Evangelina at every turn. Scared he’ll uncover the truth she keeps so well guarded, Evangelina tries her best to put on her act, deterring him like she has so many times before—only this guy’s different. He’s relentless. Utterly, absolutely and completely relentless. He sees her and he wants her and won’t stop until she’s his.
Will Evangelina succeed in pushing Blake away? Or will he break down her walls and be the person to make her realize life is worth living?
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This book was…. intense. Steamy, intense, fun, heartbreaking. Sorry, my vocabulary is pretty much limited. But I have to say that I enjoyed this book. IT ENDED IN A CLIFFHANGER THOUGH, SIGH. So, be warned, this is not a standalone novel. UNFORTUNATELY.
Live Me will break your heart into a million pieces, especially when you start to understand what was it that Eva went through. Man, that scene totally made me cry for her. Evangeline is what most people would call a broken angel. She’s broken, and strong, and seriously have such low self-esteem, thanks to what happened to her. But you know what I absolutely love about Eva? She’s good at pretending. She’s not the kind of main character that would moan and groan and make people sympathize with her. Instead, she puts on this strong front, that made her one of the popular, nice girls in school. I was surprised, I have to admit. I totally expected her to be the weak, attention-seeking type, considering what she went through. But nuuupe, this is one warrior queen.
I love the romance between Eva and Blake. Man, it was steamy hot. And charming. But, yes there’s a but. But, I do find certain scenes to be way over the top, and cheesy as hell. Just, not realistic, because honestly? I seriously do not think normal guys would say those stuffs. But hey, if you’re all for those super romantic, cheesy as hell, steamy romance, then this book is for you.
