In Colleen Hoover's gripping novel, reminiscent of the best-selling works of Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes, a young woman decides to reveal the dark secrets of her seemingly happy family before she leaves them behind, but when her escape plan fails, she must deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth.

The first Colleen Hoover book I haven’t really enjoyed. It was a very quirky story but for me that wasn’t a positive. A little too random for my taste.

My chest literally hurt reading this story. I don’t really get emotional when reading but I admit I shed a tear or two during this book. Highly recommended.

The main character wasn’t really believable as the damaged girl she was made out to be but it was a cute story. A little boring if anything.

Nolan Lennox had things figured out. Named after a baseball legend, she enjoyed being the tomboy. Her closet was filled with her brother's hand-me-downs, cut-off jeans, and soccer shorts. But when her first trip to high school results in a broken heart from the first boy to ever make her heart flutter, and cruel words from an older girl she once thought a family friend, Nolan starts to question the very person she thought she was.

I really like the fact that this story was told over a few years. Often romances are whirlwind in books but the highs and lows of Nolan and Reed played out over years, giving their relationship more depth and making it more realistic.

I'm the selfish one. I suppose that's the nicest thing people say about me. I've heard the other things, too: "Paige Owens is a pretty girl with nothing else to offer. She's just a good time at a party. She's stupid, heartless, cold, and useless. All she cares about is getting a guy to look at her. Why would anyone want to be her friend?" Some of those things are true...They're all hurtful. None of it matters. I'm ready to make the hard choices. I'm ready to face the consequences. I'm ready to be the girl I was before, and I'm done being the one who lost her way. I'm ready to become the girl Houston Orr sees when he looks at me.

This is an amazing book to finish the Falling series on. Paige’s character has been built throughout the first two books so that you honestly don’t know what to think of her when starting out the third. She is brilliantly complex and not the usual heroine of a romance novel, that’s why this is the best in the series!

To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But, while West may be big man on campus on the outside, on the inside he's battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

I really really hated this book for the way it portrayed the female characters. Apart from the main character, the women of the story are portrayed to be nothing but narcissistic and fake, just toys for the boys to play with. The boys on the other hand, including the main character, are all complete and utter pigs who use women, dispose of them when they feel like it and are worshipped for it. I really liked the idea behind the story, especially Maggie’s mutism, but I came to hate this book the more I read so stopped reading several chapters from the end.
