What I Thought
This book had so many issues going on. For some reason I love reading about two messed up people that find each other like they did in this book. Owen and Maria were perfect for each other and they just seemed to need a little time to get things sorted and hook up.
Both of the characters in this book have been through so much. They have had incredibly hard lives. Though Owen still is living with his nightmare, Maria on the other hand has an incident that happened once and I”m not sure why she allows herself to dwell in it quite so much. But anyway….
This was a really well written book and the story was really well written. It took on some pretty emotional topics and I thought it handled them really well. Abuse in any form is not something to be handled lightly, and I thought Nadia Simonenke did an amazing job with the story all the way around. I also really liked the supporting characters. Both Tina and Craig were very supportive of their friends and fun all the way around.
The one criticism I have of the book is the cover. I really didn’t think it fit with the overall theme of the book. I think they could have chosen something a little better that would have drawn the reader in a little better, but that is minor in the greater scheme of things!
Overall a great story and a great read!

summary from goodreads:
When Bea meets Beck, she knows instantly that he’s her kind of crazy. Sweet, strong, kinda-messed-up Beck understands her like no one else can. He makes her feel almost normal. He makes her feel like she could fall in love again.
But despite her feelings for Beck, Bea can’t stop thinking about someone else: a guy who is gorgeous and magnetic… and has no idea Bea even exists. But Bea knows a ton about him. She spends a lot of time watching him. She has a journal full of notes. Some might even say she’s obsessed.
Bea tells herself she’s got it all under control, but this isn’t a choice, it’s a compulsion. The truth is, she’s breaking down… and she might end up breaking her own heart.
Why I’m Waiting (most impatiently!):
A book about an obsessive crush. Like we’ve never been there? And look at that cover???? Seriously, this might be one that I have to own for my shelf… It looks beautiful!
This one sounds right up my alley!!!!
What are you waiting on?
