A simple girl.

A broken guy.

One horrible incident.

When Lea Amelia landed her feet in San Francisco for her overseas study, her idea of freedom was simple, like eating junk food ten times a day, sitting in front of the TV in her PJs, or going out late with her friends without the need to check in with her mother constantly.

Then she met Andrew Jaya, her brothers’ best friend. A twenty-two-year-old guy whose physical appearance looked like he was crafted straight from God’s heavenly hands, but possessed a past as bleak as if it was drawn by Evil himself. A conflicted guy who wore sadness like nobody’s business beneath his mask, a perfect-looking mask she slowly peeled away.

He was also the guy who hurt her.

Suddenly, everything about her was no longer simple.

Andrew Jaya had convinced himself that not feeling was good for him. He'd been doing it splendidly for almost his entire life. But that was before his best friend’s sister stepped into his life and ruined it. After weeks of knowing Lea, all of those warm and wonderful feelings he’d long ago denied to himself started to reappear. Problem was, the brighter the light, the bigger the shadows that came with it.

His traumatic past refused to let him go.

When the unthinkable happened, the easiest thing to do was to run. But life often proves that the easiest way is usually the hardest.

My Review:

What is there to say about this book. I read the book up to a certain chapter and after that I just had to call it quits, and I don't call it quits on anyone or anything, but this book made me eat my words alright.

Myself and everyone else can safely say the male lead Andrew aka Drew was a down right Fxxken moody Prick (excuse the language everyone). I liked Lea she was sweet, soft-hearted and caring, the total opposite to Andrew.

This book was slow starting out and it picks up gradually as you read further into the book. Some people will connect with the book some people won't, this book its and alright read if you can handle the contents of the book.

I give the author props for writing this book in English when English isn't her first language (reason for 2 stars).

My Rating
