Rock bottom. They say the only way to go from there is up, but what is “up” when you’re born into someone else’s rock bottom?At ten, football became my first love. It’s what got me out of the house away from my self-destructive family. My love for football landed me at Las Vegas University with a full ride scholarship, and the orange on my jersey was my favorite color…until my eyes landed on the red dress Fallyn wore the night we met.At twenty-one, I jumped off the cliff into the unknown the second Fallyn McIntyre danced in my arms at a party. I had the greatest girl in the world and the opportunity to play college ball every Saturday. My rock bottom was looking up, thanks to my two first loves.Parties, sex, and football—life was perfect. But one drink too many, and my world came crashing down. When I chose pills over my second love, my head told me it was the best decision I ever made. The pills keep me warm and protect me from the distance Fallyn created. Percs don’t judge me. They make me feel alive. Threes.They say the best things come in threes, but one leads to a stable future, one is my salvation, and the other drags me to hell—a hell I’d willingly burn in for eternity…if it weren’t for my second love.
Hi there #waves – this is me – the odd one out here. Looking right and left I see all those wonderful reviews about this book here and then there is me. I tried really hard to connect to the writing style and plotline of this book. Or at least to the characters but no matter how hard I tried – it did not work for me. The book was not horrible but it also did not feel good to me.
As I am the only one here so far having this problem it must be all on me I guess but to me the whole relationship felt constructed and more like plastic than real. I am not sure if it was the writing style or if just the characters were unwilling I guess I would need to read more by this author to judge but so far I am very sorry but this book was not for me
