Don’t take up space.
Don’t talk too loud.
Don’t tell anyone.
Blue. I’ve always been the problem child. My name alone should have warned anyone with a half a mind that I’d be trouble. Who’s named for the broken crayon nobody wants?
Professor Rhys Kennison should have seen me coming a mile away, and I should have known better than to fall for someone so far out of my league. But his touch is like fire and his taste…like the finest chocolate. What woman could resist that combination?
We’re headed for disaster, though—after all, it’s what I know best. No matter how hard I try, I can’t stop destroying anyone who gets too close. And Rhys doesn’t understand. How could he? When I don’t even understand myself?
This book is part of a series but is a standalone and can be read without reading the other books.
I’ll be honest, when I first started reading the book I didn’t quite get the interesting use of description. The things that she was saying sounded off to me and I almost put the book down. Boy am I glad I kept reading, this book is amazing.
Blue’s story could be anyone’s story. Her feeling of “Am I enough” is something all of us deal with every day. The story is so well written and real feeling I was completely sucked into the book.
Now this book does deal with some touchy subjects. Mental illness, child abandonment, and a few retellings of rape (these are not done in a gratuitous way, just to give back story on why Blue has blank spots in her memory). So if a reader has triggers I may suggest reading at your own risk.
The whole book is just fantastic, from the relationship between Blue and her sisters to her and Rhys. The book did kind of wreck me but you’ll just have to read it to find out why.
Overall the book is a great read. This is the first book I’ve read from Ms. Bishop but it will not be my last. I definitely recommend this book to anyone over the age of 18.
