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!
