Summary: “Just let it go.”
That’s what everyone keeps telling Hadley St. Clair after she learns that her father cheated on her mother. But Hadley doesn’t want to let it go. She wants to be angry and she wants everyone in her life—her dad most of all—to leave her alone.
Sam Bennett and his family have had their share of drama too. Still reeling from a move to a new town and his parents’ recent divorce, Sam is hoping that he can coast through senior year and then move on to hassle-free, parent-free life in college. He isn’t looking for a relationship…that is, until he sees Hadley for the first time.
Hadley and Sam’s connection is undeniable, but Sam has a secret that could ruin everything. Should he follow his heart or tell the truth?
My Thoughts: I really thought Suffer Love sounded awesome when I read the description! I knew I had to read it! It sounded like a fun contemp!
We are introduced to Sam and Hadley!!! They both have a very complicated past and they both came from a very interesting family.
Sam and Hadley are more connected than they think when they meet. Well, Sam puts together the pieces pretty quick but Hadley is left in the dark for a while.
Despite the circumstances Sam is really drawn to Hadley. And Hadley is drawn to Sam.
This one is hard for me to write about. I liked it. I liked following along with the story and putting two and two together. I liked Sam and Hadley as characters. Hadley let her guard down around Sam and I liked Sam overall. But, I just never really felt connected with the story or plot. It was a good contemporary, it just wasn’t the best one for me I think.
Overall: It wasn’t Sam or Hadley’s fault on what their parents did but I still had a hard time really getting into this one because I had figured out pretty quick what had happened. I did really like the dual point of views. I know I can’t love each book I read so there’s always a few that I never really feel that connection too. I think A LOT of people will read this one and love love love love love love it but it was just okay for me! I’m still glad I read it!!! I will continue to read the next one this author writes! I think this is more of a 3.5 cupcake rating, instead of a 3.
Cover: Love it! Love the colors and the way they are holding one another.
