****4.5 loving stars****
Blurb (from author):
Rule #1 Do NOT ignore the signs.
Rule #2 Pay attention.
Rule #3 The less they know about you, the harder it is for them to hurt you.
Rule #4 Comfort is dangerous. It can be taken away.
Rule #5 Need is a handicap. It can cripple you.
Rule #6 He isn’t what he seems. Don’t trust him.
Simple rules made for a simple purpose. Nina Ryan learned early on in life that if you want to avoid being hurt, you need to be proactive. If you pay attention, the Universe will always steer you in the right direction. It will help keep you safe. So, she follows the rules, and she is safe. Until Connor Wright barges his way through all her carefully laid defenses and threatens to destroy the comfortable life she has created. Faithfully following her #1 rule, Nina tries to accept that the Universe has pushed Connor and her lives together for a purpose. Determined to make Nina his, Connor chips away at the walls Nina has placed around her heart and her secrets. Is Nina following the signs that will lead her down the right path, or does Connor hold secrets of his own that will ruin Nina for good? Only the Universe knows.
I stumbled across this book thanks to some Goodreads friends and I'm MORE than pleased I did - Devon Herrera, you my lovely little lady, are amazing :)
It's book covers some serious issues, some of which are very hard to read, but somehow Devon manages to make the reader feel at ease reading about them (sorry if that didn't make any sense!)
For the first time when reading a book, I made notes and highlighted sections to refer back to [go me, organised!]. To keep my reviews spoiler free, I'd rather tell you how parts of this book made me feel rather than divulge any of the story so here goes...
17% Shocked. Confused.
31% touched. Loved. Warm and fuzzy.
50% Angry ... Why?? Grr.
89% deliriously happy.
100% so glad I bought this book.
Overall a brilliant book, 0.5* subtracted because the pace wasn't steady, it seemed to go way too fast, then it slowed up, then it was perfect, then it seemed to go too fast again.
"I will always carry you Princess. Not everyone can say they have held their entire Universe in their arms.”
"It’s a message from the Universe."
"The best relationships begin as friendships.”
Will definitely read more of Devons novels so come on Devon - get writing!!
