My Review:

*naked truth* "We're all just people who sometimes do bad things."

This book deals with domestic abuse and what one girl goes through from being a kid that witnessed it to being in a  whirlwind relationship to a man she truly loves... even if cracks start to show.  

Written through Lily's perspective with flashbacks in her journal reading, we see how Lily has become the person she is and you fall in love with her.  I absolutely loved the journal reading of the main character, Lily, all written in forms of letters to Ellen DeGeneres.  Everything feels so realistic and just so HUMAN throughout this read.  And then you read the note from the author.. I felt this in my heart y'all.  Every books of Hoover's I've read so far I've loved.  Her writing is seamless and each story has been impactful in some way - some more than others.

A story of love, loyalty, being kind, relationships, coming into your own and how it's never too late to break the cycle.

I don't usually read romance, but when I do, it's Hoover.  Just Keep Swimming.
