Synopsis

Hadley St. Clair’s life changed the day she came home to a front door covered in slips of paper, each of them revealing the ugly truth about her father. Now as her family falls apart in the wake of his year-long affair, Hadley wants everyone-her dad most of all-to leave her alone.

Then she meets Sam Bennett, a cute new boy who inexplicably “feels like home” to Hadley. Hadley and Sam’s connection is undeniable, but Sam has a secret about his family that could ruin everything.

Funny and passionate, Suffer Love is a story about first love, family dysfunction, and the fickle hand of fate.

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange of a review. No compensation in any form was received for the review of this book.

I have no words for this book. I’m having a hard time trying to express my thoughts about the book. One thing is for sure though, I really had a great time reading this book.

Blake’s writing style is excellent and consistent. The story grabs attention easily and it definitely brings you on edge. The characters also show interesting development.

I really adore the chemistry between Sam and Hadley. The dual POV makes it really easier to understand both characters. They do well both as separate characters and as a couple. I also love Livy, Sam’s sister; Kat and Ajay, Hadley and Sam’s respective bestfriends. The romance might be a bit cliche and cheesy but I really love how the story folds. It’s raw, gripping, and ultimately heartbreaking.

Overall, this book offers a lot of great things. It’s a very exceptional debut and I’m really looking forward to more of Blake’s works in the future!

FAVORITE QUOTES

“If I’ve learned anything in the past six months, it’s that life is a fickle little bitch and there’s not one damn think I can do to tame her.”

“We huddle together, all of our eyes stinging, a cracked unit trying to feel whole. Trying to act whole.”
