As walls slowly begin to chip away, the secrets that are held within start to become painful burdens.
At what point do secrets become lies?
This is such a touching story. The way the writers writes the emotions of the characters really makes you feel for them. It had a very strong beginning that really had me interested and held my attention. And me being a person that has to know everything, I just had to read on to know.
What is this story about
The story is about Candance, who is a fine arts major, who is majoring in dance. She is a dedicated and amazing ballerina. Her parents really made her insecure and full of self-doubt. Candance always tried to live up to her mothers expectations. She always felt like she wasn't good enough. I can really relate to that feeling so I could really feel her pain.
Candance lives with her best friend Kimber. I don't feel much for the girl. She isn't there much. Candance claimes that Kimber is her best friend, her sister but I think she's just like a sister. I think Jace is more of her best friend. He's really there for her and Candance always goes to him for help before she goes to anyone else.
Candance is a sweet, caring, strong beautiful girl who just doesn't see the value in herself. Her selfdoubt really kills her confidence. She has a fucked up relationship with her parents and you really get to see her heal in the story. Not only having no loving familie, she goes threw a horrific event that makes her selfdoubt even worse.
With the help of Ryan ( I will tell you about him in a minute) and Jace and Mark(Mark is Jace's boyfriend) she pulls threw it and really heals. She learns to let go. And that's amazing to see.
Oke so Ryan is hot, sexy, swoon worthy, dark haired, blue eyed, caring, loving, and just an amazing guy. He is relaxed and really patient. He is great with kids( he has a big family with lost of little cousins). He is a very strong person with a messed up past. His father was a drunk, not a happy drunk. But he came out stronger. He is really amazing for Candance. He really loves her and helps her threw everything
What did I love.
Well I loved it, when I start reading this series I didn't know I would. I loved that I could relate to Candance, maybe that isn't such a good thing but I really get how she feels. Not feeling good enough really takes a toll on you. I loved how Ryan is there for candance.
I really really loved Jace, I wished I had a friend like that. Someone that would drop everything and come to me if I needed them to. I also loved that Mark became such a good friend to Candance. He is a really good guy.
This book made me realize that I need to let go to, not to let fear control your life and take a chance once in a while. And also that it is oke to trust someone and let them in. Not everyone will hurt you, and even if they do, you will live threw it.
In the beginning of the story, there was some mystery. I guessed that how that would turn out but it didn't make me love the story any less. I'm happy with how it turned out. I can't wait to read more about Jace and Mark but also to read from Ryan's point of view.
I hate that I loved this story because now I have to buy it ahahah my wallet hates me sigh
