Loved it..full review to follow!
4-4.5 Bad Boy Turned Good Stars
This disclaimer/warning is different than most and goes out to my girls..this is not a bam bam book..It is a YA/NA survivor story on both parts of the lead characters.
Tristan Chamberlain is a Malore..what you ask is that? It is the morphing of male and whore..two things that sum up the kind of relationship guy that Tristan has always been known to be.. He is not a love em and keep em around guy nor is his brother. They keep what they love at arms length but will protect those same people with everything they have! Their life was full of emptiness not ever knowing the meaning of what true love felt like. Taken in by friends after their grandmother passed was the blessing they were waiting for and began their journey to healing and being able to possess what love means.
“Since the minute I saw her, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about her. She’s different where everyone else is the same And for the first time in my life I want to try for more I want to BE more Can I be more? I don’t know if I deserve to be happy…” Tristan
Mia is a girl who is running..running from a dickhead father and a tragedy so disgustingly horrible that when I read it I teared up..I rarely EVER tear up. Mia and her best friend shared a past that would destroy most people but Mia found the strength to get through her senior year and get out to start a new life out from under the scrutiny of others. I admire Mia in this story, she had every reason to break and shatter into a million pieces and I felt her strength throughout and cheered for her at every turn. Her best friend Darby was also a character and I look forward to reading her and Trace’s story..
With every tragedy comes the opportunity for a hero to be made I felt like Mia and Tristan were heroes in their own rights. Their love story and friendship had me feeling butterflies, smiles and kept me connected to them from start to the end..by the way “the end” leads into book two. Not a cliffy but a to be continued for sure..
If you are a fan of YA with a touch of NA then I think you will LOVE this book.
